Book Description

6 April 2009
The revolution has finally arrived. Twenty20, cricket's little brother since its inception in 2003, has finally started to flex its muscles...and the sport will never be the same again. The world's favourite summer pastime has become the biggest sporting phenomenon on the planet, with multi-million-pound player auctions, World Cups every two years, packed grounds, new leagues, and a buzz around the game that hasn't been seen for generations."Twenty20 Cricket Guide 2009" is the perfect guide to the brand-new world that is 20-over-a-side cricket. It contains a review of the 2007 Twenty20 World Cup and tells the story of how India's success in that competition inspired dramatic changes in world cricket. It looks back at the inaugural Indian Premier League extravaganza and discusses how English cricket decided to respond. It looks forward to the 2009 season, both international and domestic, and previews each nation's chances for the upcoming 2009 Twenty20 World Cup. Packed with features, it is the indispensable guide to the world's fastest-growing sport.
