We’re gen­uinely cu­ri­ous about T20: is it the Big Bash in par­tic­u­lar that we love, or are we in­ter­ested in watch­ing it at an in­ter­na­tional level as well? (Or are we just look­ing for Watermelon Boy?) We’ll find out this month, as cricket’s short­est form has its bright­est spot­light mo­ment yet with the ICC World T20 (from Mar 8) in In­dia. The first phase of the tour­na­ment oc­cu­pies the min­nows, leav­ing Our Boys to stage in South Africa, where they’ll play a quick se­ries against AB de Vil­liers (above) and com­pany. The first Aus­tralia vs South Africa T20 (Mar 4) is in Dur­ban, with the fol­low­ing matches in Joburg (Mar 6) and Cape Town (Mar 9). The ICC Women’s World T20 (from Mar 15) runs con­cur­rently with the men’s. Here, Aus­tralia’s South­ern Stars are de­fend­ing the ti­tle they won in Bangladesh in 2014.
