    Indian Cricket League and Indian premier league

    Can anyone tell me what is the best one and who has the better players. Can anyone just give me some info on both.

    Indian premier league looks better but some players are not involved in the first year

    And how does this effect the twenty20 champions league

    Basically, IPL is the approved version with all the major international starts available and ready to play in it.. It is the one which will affect the Champions Trophy Twenty20 league.


    ICL is being treated as a rebel league and is mainly just a collection of a lot of retired, semi retired, or not able to make the national side, international cricketers and the similar kind of domestic cricketers who know there isn't much of a chance to make it for their national sides. People signing up with the ICL are being banned from all national domestic competitions apart from becoming ineligible for selection for their national sides.

    The English guys, Solanki, Read etc will be playing County Cricket this season, will they not?

    I dont think they are banned from domestic comps.

    Depends on the ruling of each board I suppose. I know CA has banned any player joining the ICL from playing domestic cricket in Australia.

    England are allowing English players to still play in the county comp, but no overseas players that played in ICL, unless they are allowed to by their home board. Biggest joke ever, double standards to the max IMO.

    West Indies allow their players to play in the domestic comp as well. Ireland are pushing for their players to play internationally. Basically it is just depends on the country and their own stance.

    For some time, it seems, the Lankan board chief actually supported the ICL, possibly because he was miffed that IPL was mre a consortium of India, Australia, SA and NZ and no others.

    Gunawardene has been banned from domestic and international cricket in Sri Lanka for signing with the ICL. So I doubt they support the ICL.

    I don't think they are coming back to the ICL either... Maybe that's why.. Not sure.

    Ok with most of the names for the IPL at least provisionally announced I thought Id rank them in my own personal order of prefference.

    Interested to see what others think.
    So in order of best to worst.

    1. Chandigarh Lions - You cant go wrong with lions. Just means business
    2. Rajasthan Royals - Fits well and sounds good
    3. Kolkata Tigers - In the same vein as Lions. Gives it a sence of controlled agression
    4. Lahore Badshahs - Dont know what it means but sounds ok and it reads as 'Bad Asses' in my mind
    5. Ahmedabad Rockets - Sounds ok and has positive connotations and visions of things being launch into the sky as the ball is in T20
    6. Chennai Superstars- A little generic but you have to like the bravado
    7. Delhi Giants- Again quite generic but a decent name that have a good pedigree across sports around the World
    8. Chennai Super Kings- Apart from being a cig brand, it sound like a Japanese 'Engrish' phrase that doesnt really fit together well.
    9. Delhi Daredevils- I dont like it but I could see how others would. Just doesnt do anything for me.
    10. Mumbai Indians- Not a bad name if they were playing Internationally but the other teams will be based in India also and the Mumbai team will have foreign players. I dont get it.
    11. Hyderabad Heroes - Sound like a cheap make of imported toys
    12. Mumbai Champs - See Hyderabad Heroes
    13. Bangalore Royal Challengers - Sounds ok but seems to lack ambition
    14. Kolkata Knight Riders - A name based on an 80s TV show and the name conjures nothing to do with cricket.

    Ungraded
    IPL Hyderabad
    IPL Mohali

    Badshah = King. And as for the Knight Riders - it might not conjure 80s TV show to us, but to the target audience - I doubt they ever heard of it. I think the worst name is probably Mumbai Indians, and Chennai Super Kings, personally.

    I wasn't all that interesting in this years ICL until I saw that team and the name. Sounds ferocious and if you look at the list of players I'd have to say they look the strongest.

    As far as the names in general go, some of them are absolutely terrible. Mumbai Champs, Chennai Superstars, Chennai Super Kings being the worst of the lot. Having said that I'm a bit of a Dhoni Fan so I'll be Backing the Super Kings no matter how bad the name is and how bad they make the kit.
