ICC Champions Trophy Starts Tuesday

ICC's premier one-day tournament ICC Champions Trophy starts Tuesday in South Africa.

 

Strangely, an event of this magnitude is under the scanner for all the wrong reasons including its survival. As usual the Twenty20 format or more specifically the IPL Twenty20 tournament is in the forefront of the debate.

 

Two legends have in fact brought the ODI format in sharp focus. Sachin is advocating a four innings format, whereas Warne wants the format dropped and the fence sitters have jumped on the bandwagon.

 

This writer feels that a couple of close matches, including a tense final will surely convert the doubters and give fresh life to the format.
