    I have been saying for a number of years that the game has lots of potential in europe, It really is a market that cricket can market too, and twenty20 will help to expand that market further, along with regular appearances in the World Cricket League and other tornaments for the teams involved. Congratulations to Germany on their achievement, i look forward to seeing them progress in the future. Good luck to them.
