Flash news - the World is not Enough (for a Cup)It seems that the event underway in Zuid Afrika at the moment is NOT a World Cup. I learnt this from the friendly folk at The Googly, from whom I also borrowed the emphatic negation. Before this, the dangling pointer that was the "ICC World Twenty20" did disturb some of my syntactic synapses which wondered worriedly whether a word1 had dropped off the cliff when our backs were turned to it.
Apparently, this is not a World Cup, but just a Championship, quite like the ICC Champions Trophy. The Googly says the first T20 WC will happen in England in 2009. Thanks for the warning. I had almost ripped my clothes off in imitation of the dancing boundary-riders, who're functioning on Twenty20 percent clothing coverage. The ICC Marketing men have finally got their act together.
1: did I just set a world record for alliterative w's ?
