ICC World Twenty20

Cricket must play redemption song to win Caribbean

Jamie Alter

The last big cricket event in the Caribbean was a disaster, with killjoy regulations, but this wide-open tournament could set things right, says Mike Selvey in the Guardian.

That the World Twenty20 comes so soon after the last edition, an outstanding success in England, is unfortunate, not least for the reigning champions Pakistan, but represents a recalibrating of the international calendar. However, the opportunity for the region to re-establish its cricketing credentials is huge, with a hit-and-dash schedule to match the cricket.

Elsewhere, the Telegraph speaks to Hamid Hassan, Afghanistan's Flintoff.
