I apologize for digressing from an enthralling cricket game in New Delhi but couldn’t resist from posting this report on cricinfo regarding ECB’s review of England’s participation in the Stanford parody. It is known that this guy is an egomaniac having desires to conquer the cricketing world much like a typical Bond movie villian. The ECB has realized that he is more like a hindi movie villian with cheaper desires that range from seeking blondes and wives of cricketers to micromanaging cricket games. This venture had all the making of a disaster from the get go and now the end of this fiasco seems all but there. It will not be too long before the ECB put “itself on its knees” in front of IPL and Lalit Modi.
The ICL tournament is going almost unnoticed and with, these recent round of events in the carribean, the IPL really does not have to put too much of fight to ensure that they rule the 20/20 world, atleast commercially.
