For me the best part of IPL was watching Hayden demolish the bowlers, something I am forced to miss in Official T20.
2. It gives a chance to players like Gilchrist/Warne to show their leadership skills, something our Cricket Administrators never allowed us to witness in last 20 years.
3. It brings accountability, If you do not perform you are fired, VVS Laxman was removed from captaincy, so were Dravid and Ganguly. John Buchanan is gone and that makes it a lot more competitive.
I can think of more reasons when I have time..
Bullett....god to see another poster preaching this...
