IPL fever begins...

It was some 6 months back that the Indian Cricket League(ICL) was born. This was started because of the ex-players who have had a bitter relationship with the BCCI and wanted to badly get out of the net. This was simply because of the never ending politics that existed in BCCI. The ICL initially was a big hit among the people but gradually it lost its fans because of the monotony that existed in ICL. But, BCCI had all the answers to ICL. It proved its might when it traded in some great players from other countries to play for the Indian Premier League(IPL). The trade-off amount was something that any player would feel in awe about. The players were able to mete out some huge money and IPL proved to be the best BUSINESS for cricketers. They could be able to churn out more money than what they could have amassed if they played for their own country in international encounters. Although this concept proves to be a big negative when it comes to hampering the class and quality of the international matches, it will surely prove to be a money-spinner and would attract large crowds simply because of the fact that it is going to b held in India where Cricket is like a religion. The much awaited IPL is going to get underway today and the first match will be between the Bangalore Royal challengers and the Kolkata Knight riders. A great day for cricket is already on the cards as players like Dravid, Kallis, Steyn, Ganguly, Gayle are going to be a pat of the big match between these 2 good teams. So, lets wait and watch out for the wonderful IPL season ahead!!!
