T20 to make debut in Asian Games in 2010

August 22, 2008

Come 2010, we are going to see Twenty20 cricket in the 16th Asian games to be held in China. This is great news for every T20 lower, as their favorite game is getting recognition in global arena.

Randhir Singh, Secretary General of Olympic council of Asia announce the inclusion of T20 in the 16th Asian games, but he disappointed the females team as this inclusion will be only of the men T20 teams, but he has not denied the fact that females team will also be allowed to participate in the coming years.

The test playing Asian countries will be fighting for the medals. The main contenders are India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The final go ahead was given during the General Assembly meeting of the Olympic council of Asia held in the Kuwait.

This inclusion of T20 can turn into a mutual beneficial association for both the OCA and the T 20 cricket. The OCA will get the loads of revenue which will be only because of the cricket and on the other hand the T 20 cricket will get entry into the International level event and then Olympics will be the only target left.
