Twenty 20 keeps coming up with something new every now an then. The ICC T20 world cup in England will add another spectacle to this ever evolving sport. For the first time, children will accompany the teams to the field before the match as regularly happens in football matches. Also, for the first time in T20 games, the national anthems of the teams will be sung before the start.

A joint initiative between the ICC and its global partner LG Electronics, Lead XI, has selected 15 children from across the country to lead the India team on the field before every match.

As for the other teams, they too will be lead on the field by the children who will be selected from England.
