The 2010 ICC World Twenty20 is an international
Twenty20 cricket tournament that will be held in
the West Indies between 30 April and 16 May
2010. Although the tournament is held every two
years beginning in 2007, the scheduled ICC
Champions Trophy one-day international
tournament to be held in the West Indies in 2010
has been revised to a Twenty20 format because
the 2008 Champions Trophy tournament in Pakistan
was postponed due to security concerns and there
was a need to correct the international
cricketing tournament calendar. This ICC World
Twenty20 will be taking place only 10 months
after the last one. As before, the tournament
will feature 12 teams the Test-playing nations
and two qualifiers.
Matches will be played at four grounds –
Barbados, Guyana, St.Lucia and St.Kitts & Nevis.
The tournament will be organised in parallel
with the women's tournament, with the men's
semi-finals and final being preceded by the
semi-finals and final from the women's event.
