    Cricketing life is going to be horrible in the coming years. 94 IPL games is twice as long as it should be. No one in the BCCI has heard the saying "Too much of anything is bad for your health".

    Withing 10-20 years: 30 teams (one of which to be based in Bangladesh), 162 games/team/season/year + a postseason, and the final to be called the World Series.

    Test match will not lose out. IPL will run a short race and fall flat on its face because of greed.

    I don't think the usual 'overkill' idea will apply to the IPL. If it gets to the point where there are ten teams, playing each other home and away (i.e. a genuine league), there will only be a consolidation of local support. At the moment fans largely go to see the spectacle of a Twenty20 game, whereas once it becomes more established, they will become fans of their local franchise. The individual game will become less significant (and in the eyes of the traditionalist, more monotonous), but the fortunes of the time over time will become more pronounced.

    Look at baseball - 160 games per season. The IPL will never stretch to anywhere near those proportions, but it shows that a long season does not necessarily equate with overkill.

    EDIT: Just seen Quagga's post... TBH could see a Bangladeshi franchise in ten years' time.

    TBH thought that might be a bit more controversial, wasn't expecting such support.

    And they were wrong to say it, because ODIs have never been over-scheduled to this extent.

    That's not to mention that there are many people who have been saying for the last 3-4 years that ODIs have run their course and will soon die-off.

    95%? Wow - that's more than watch almost any global event.
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Of course, its overkill. Unlike cricketers, baseballers don't have to go globetrotting on prolonged tours representing the US of A.
