Yes, this is a call to arms as well as the name of the X-Files movie (mmm... David Duchovny).
Cricket Australia, in conjunction with New Zealand and South Africa, are going to hold a Twenty20 championship and invite international players to compete.
This isn't rugby union people. I'm going to go out on a limb and say NO ONE WILL BE INTERESTED IN OUR OFFERING.
Oh but wait. They're going invite players like Sachin Tendulkar to compete.
"Play in Australia? How much? Wa-ha-ha-ha, bother me not, pleb, I am busy rolling around in my swimming pools of cash. Run along!"
They would be better off initiating a second tournament against England, because that's what draws people in, gets bums on seats and ultimately makes the money.
Plus, the English players would be up for it. They'd do anything for a few minutes of sunshine, poor loves.
Why are we all giving in to Twenty20? Doesn't anyone believe in real cricket anymore?
Twenty20 cricket is not the future. We must fight it.
