Mumbai, Apr 17 (UNI) Indian cricket legend Sunil Gavaskar today endorsed the latest form of the game - 'Twenty20', saying it was the ideal way to spread the game to emerging countries as it gets over in three hours unlike the longer version of the game.

''It's terrific for the emerging nations. It gets over in three hours. A football match gets over in say two hours (including extra-time etc). This form of the game can be taken to China, USA and parts of Europe, but the important factor is preparation of wickets,'' the former India captain said on the sidelines of the launch of Mumbai Indians IPL team here.

He did not have any regrets that this form of the game was not in vogue during his playing days.
