Twenty20 Cricket

Twenty20, or T20 as the format is often known as, is a short form version of the sport of Cricket that was an invention of the ECB in 2003 to provide a new version of the sport that was hoped would attract a whole new group of fans to the struggling British domestic scene.

With matches taking just an evening, the action been nonstop from the first ball to the last and with teams putting on and off the field entertainment, the new T20 game quickly proved popular.

Nowadays, the sport is played around the world, fills stadiums and features in international, domestic and regions competitions but perhaps best of all, many matches and tournaments can be watch live online via the great T20 live stream partners we feature on this very page.

When the leading British One Day tournament came to an end in 2002 due to a lack of sponsorship, change was needed and with the aim of attracting a younger generation of crowds to the sport, a faster and shorter format was preferred.

Originally that came with much resistance from the existing fans of the sport and from many of the leading counties who still relied on tradition as the sports major selling point.

In the end it was a marketing man who came up with the idea and managed to persuade 11 county chairmen to vote for the proposal, with 7 voting against it.

It is to the huge benefit of everybody who loves the sport that those majority of chairmen did listen to the ‘genius’ of Stuart Robertson, as the 20 over format of the game has now not only become a favourite for fans of the county game, but it is a format that has developed many of the biggest and most popular competitions in any format of the sport and it has helped create huge wealth for the players.

It has been the invention of the Indian Premier League (the IPL) that has rocked the format and the sport into a global one as sport fans from around the world watch the sport leading stars all play against each other around India, where huge stadiums with huge crowds cheer every 4 and 6 like it is the world cup winning run.

The format has also made its way into the international realm, which was something it was never intended to do, but almost form the off calls were for the top tier nations to play international matches and that is just what happened.

Nowadays, just about every tour feature T20 matches and there is a hugely popular T20 World Cup, whilst there are lots of Twenty20 internationals held around the world all year around, with many of them available to watch live via the Twenty20 live streaming services that we feature on this very page.

History

As mentioned, the history of T20 Cricket goes back to 2003, when it was first introduced by the English and Wales Cricket Board, the ECB.

For the first tournament, a new Twenty20 Cup was introduced to feature all the English counties and it proved to be a huge success from the off.

The tournament culminated with a final, where the Surrey Lions defeat the Warwickshire Bears, to win the first ever T20 trophy., whilst the first ever match held at Lord’s stadium saw a crowd of 27,509 watch Middlesex take on Surrey.

That was the largest county cricket crowd, outside of a major final, to witness a game since 1953.

The format quickly expanded from there with Pakistan starting their own competition in 2004 and by 2005, it was Australia who introduced the format when the Western Warriors took on the Victorian Bushrangers at the iconic WACA Ground in front of a sell out crowd- the first in nearly 20 years.

The first ever T20i took place in February 2005 when Australia defeated New Zealand at Eden Park, whilst the first international tournament, the ICC T20 World Cup took place.

In 2006, the West Indies started what would eventually become an ill-fated event of their own with the Stanford 20/20 tournament that was bankrolled by Allen Stanford.

In 2007, the Gabba saw a crowd of 27,653 as the sport lynched onto the success of the State of Origin Rugby League rivalry as the Queensland Bulls took on the New South Wales Blues.

Things moved to a whole new level in February 2008 when a massive crowd of 85,824 fans witnessed Australia take on India at the MCG.

The new format would see plenty of controversy in the early years, with most of it linked to Allen Stanford, including the ill-fated Super Series that saw the winners of the English and Caribbean domestic competitions face off against a ‘superstar team’, but the convicted fraudster turned the whole thing into a competition just for money and it damaged the image of the 20 over game.

Thankfully the success of the first World Cup had grabbed the attention of fans and administrators around the world and numerous T20 leagues started to pop up including the now iconic IPL, Indian Premier League, that utilises the American franchise system and that has grown to be the largest Cricket competition in the world.

Other leagues to have been developed around the world include the Big Bash League, the Bangladesh Premier League, the Caribbean Premier League, the Afghanistan Premier League, the Super League and the Mzansi Super League in South Africa.

The majority of these tournament have used the success of the IPL and have stuck to the formula that they implemented, which has seen a number of players dedicated themselves solely to the 20 over game and now play around the world for numerous sides.

With so many players having opportunities to paly the format and with the short and exciting nature of it, T20 has quickly become a great source of globalising Cricket and that has been helped by the ICC awarded full international match status to all matches played under their rules.
