Rugby Style Super Series In 2009???

T20 is to take a big leap in the coming future. With its increasing number of viewership across the globe, it has surely got everyone on the edge of the seats. South African board has proposed a Rugby Style Super Series also involving Austalia and India. Two of these nations namely South Africa and Australia will host the games.

This is common in Rugby where the three teams involved are South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. It is played every year. If this gets a green signal, TV viewership is surely bound to boom. However there are a few hiccups. First thing will be the availability of a window. 2009 is pretty cramped and already the proposed Champions Trophy itself doesn’t have a proper window. The next thing will be the necessity to negotiate with ICC as they allow only seven T20 International Games per team. Nothing has been finalised yet and we have to wait and see whether this kicks on.
