Former great Allan Border feels a proliferation of T20 internationals could kill the 50-over format. One of the most successful Test captains in the history of the game, Border wants an end to Twenty20 internationals outside a biennial World Cup organized by the ICC.

Speaking on ABC Radio, Border said: "I wouldn't be playing T20 international cricket at all, I would save that for a World Cup every two years.

"I think there is enough domestic Twenty20 cricket to fill the programme out quite nicely. We've got the Big Bash, there's the IPL, there's Twenty20 competitions in basically every country."
