With Twenty20 most definitely here to stay, International cricket tours now have to accommodate all three formats of the game. There is no standard pattern for how many matches of each form are included but international cricket boards could do worse than base future tours on the current schedule being employed between New Zealand and England.
This is a man that plays more international cricket than any other. Leader of his nation in all three formats of the game, he also keeps wicket. That, in addition to the demands of an assertive board in the BCCI, public expectation and the obligation of marshalling a host of cricketers almost of demi-God status within India is an almighty task.
