Colombo: One needs to give credit where it's due; The International Cricket Council in this case, which has managed to achieve the unthinkable - turn the most exciting version of cricket into a big bore.
The World T20 in Sri Lanka hasn't quite set the world of cricket on fire. Let's be honest, Zimbabwe vs Sri Lanka in a scarcely occupied stadium in Hambantota, isn't exactly the best way to get the ball rolling. In fact, the match schedule has been such that for the first four days of the tournament one only saw lopsided contests, devoid of any excitement.
I'm made to understand that from the Super 8s onwards all matches are sold out. But then why not start the tournament with a few mouthwatering encounters? Isn't well begun- half done?
