BCB promises stellar WT20
Aug 4, 2013The logo for the 2014 ICC World Twenty20, inspired by both the Bangladesh flag and the country’s iconic waterways, was launched in Dhaka exactly a year ahead of the tournament final. According to the ICC, it uses the colours of the Bangladesh flag with splashes of blue which represents Bangladesh’s iconic waterways. The T is made up of cricket stumps and the 0 in the T20 represents the cricket ball complete with Bangladeshi green seam, while the white in the design lends an energetic, friendly and youthful feel to the logo. It will be the biggest multi-nation tournament ever held in Bangladesh in terms of participating teams, as 16 men’s teams — 10 full members and six qualifiers — and eight women’s teams will take part in the mega event which will be played from March 16 to April 6 next year in four venues across the country.
