What is it with the ICC ?

ICC made the 2007 Cricket world cup too long by having 16 teams compete . That was one day match which lasts for about 7 hours . Every player and fans where of the opinion that the tournament is too long . But now when a shorter format of the game IE. twenty20 tournament is going to be held in South Africa only 12 teams will compete . ICC could have followed FIFA world cup's format and could have included 32 teams . There should be 4 matches a day with 2 matches to be held simultaneously .
then the knockout round should start . In this way many countries will get international exposure and more importantly fans will not be bored .
