Nah, we have the IPL, that is enough, plus all the other cricket we have.
It was their idea too :wacko:
They don't have to use international players anyway :huh:
We probably won't.
Yay, finally sense prevails!!!
So i gather the kiwis here don't like it.
I guess we could always have 1 franchise from namibia and 1 from zimbabwe.
Matt sinclair said he would like to play in the spl.
Does jacob oram even play tests anymore,he may well be better off playing spl.
Don't have to play your international players in the spl,it heps but its not the be all or end of.
If it replaced both nations current T20 competitions then fine. If it doesn't then I don't want international players anywhere near it. Its all academic now of course.
My only problem would have been the injury prone internationals like Oram and Bond playing in two T20 tournaments that are non BC related every year, along with their other commitments.
Tough for SPL to take off - Majola | South Africa Cricket News | Cricinfo.com
SPL on the downward trend.
Why not just completely decouple T20's from other international cricket, shift the game to a series of agreeable International Premier leagues, (IPL,SPL, EPL) however many can be fit in a calendar year and then reduce International T20 matches to the one marquee t20 World cup ever 2/4 years? It would make T20 what it probably was meant to be in the first place. Cricket equivalent to Rugby sevens.
Then on tours National teams can focus on test and ODI cricket whilst those players, can decide (depending on how much they think their International career is likely to be successful in whatever format of the game) to either specialise in one particular Premier league that suits their NT commitments, or lbecome full time t20 specialists specifically to make the T20 World Cup teams
