ICC board expands 2014 World Twenty20 tournament
ISLAMABAD, Apr 16 (APP): The International Cricket Council (ICC) executive board has opted to expand the number of teams in the 2014 World Twenty20 tournament in Bangladesh from 12 to 16. The move was announced Monday at the end of a two-day meeting in Dubai and aims to appease the concerns of associate members who were angered when the ICC refused to expand this year’s tournament, a private news channel reported. The board also approved three additional Twenty20 internationals to be played in the years in which the World Twenty20 is scheduled. Current rules limit the number of T20 internationals to a maximum of 12 per team.
