After seeing the bidding war for the IPL, I am shocked with the amount of money thrown about, and who to!!! The new EPL of tonk (with no English players...the most credible and funny bit!)

Imp wondering if there will be a massive surge in development of grounds over in India to accommodate teams and their war chests of cash......When do teams get sold off to China and the US?

Is this the death of cricket, it is going to be interesting the pressure exerted onto international fixtures and the ICC. The issues of gambling and people taking a dive?

I would have thought bidding for umpires would be fierce....or will they just discard them when necessary

The world of cricket definately needed a shake-up - my guess is that this will just be the start of many changes that cricket will go through over the next few years - hopefully it comes out in a much better position when everything settles down.

The funniest part of all this was how Ponting had a sook about the amount he went for.

I have very little care factor for the teams. I can form little attachment to them. The Champions League will be interesting if it ever arises.

This is just the thin edge of the wedge. If it proves even a moderate success then the owners will push the league from 6 to 12 weeks, then to 24 weeks and so on.

International cricket will be the big loser out of this which is a shame for all the obvious reasons.

Bangalore helpdesks :lol:

one thing i have noticed during the cricket season this year is how bad Indians are in writing signs.....maybe i just dont understand the humour, mind you i would come up with a pretty sh*t sign in Hindi.

my major concern is the aded strength India will have for future player development having people like Buchannan, Warne, Macgrath Lara over there to mentore their players.

Why would you blow so much money on players for a form of the game that doesn't really test their skills?

It's all about their name but it is a good point. Many fringe players would do as well if not better than name players when it comes to T20.

You're right about name. I thought of that when i was making my post, but if i'd added that bit of common sense it wouldn't have been as amusing.



Delhi Daredevils, awesome.

While I don't disagree, it seems that just about every new comp seems to get this tag from us. Like for instance the new trans tasman netball comp. Some of these teams were doomed from the start though as the company that owns them wanted to put there name into the name of the team ie Hyderabad and Deccan.

And with all the money spending are the Rajasthan Royals the smartest going around spending only half their budget? Dimitri Mascarenhas (the only Pome in the comp) is an absolute steal at 100,000.
