    What a joke the ICC world 20-20 qualifier turned out to be. 20-20 matches should not be being decided by Duckworth Lewis and is there anything more ridiculous than two teams sharing the cup because of rain? The games only take three hours, it should have been easy to schedule enough time to get the tournament played properly. Why did they have to squeeze it into four days.... two games a day, a couple of rain-days/afternoons and a week-duration for the tournament would have been far better.
