    New Feature : Eleven things I hate about the IPL

    Cricket Web - Features: Eleven things I hate about the IPL

    With the IPL circus in town and having been watching the games and reading about it a lot, Rahul Fernandes inspired me to write an article about things I hate in IPL after stumbling across his blog, I owe him a thanks for waking up the IPL hating cells in my brain. Here is the list of eleven things I hate about IPL and these are in no particular order. Enjoy

    Nice article and pretty much spot on.

    The things I hate about the IPL GREATLY outweigh the things I like...of which there are none.

    No people hate hollow commercialism, the' Max mobile advert break' is my most hated thing about the IPL followed by Danny Morrison saying 'IN IPL 2010' after anyone has done anything.

    Still some of the cricket is ok I guess.

    And whilst a handful of people are telling us what they hate about the IPL, they're still selling out every game.

    i know over advertising and stuff can be abit to much to handle however this sort of stuff has been around way before the IPL came along.

    I was referring more to the 20/20 game itself.. ive watched a few games myself and its not just all hit bash and many nar sayers claim... I watched Shawn Marsh bat recently and he played very well and all balls on ther merit..

    I am shocked, shocked the Mongoose bat did not merit a mention. That would be number #1-#11 for me.

    Making the handle longer and removing the top of the bat because the backfoot defense is irrelevent? My head wants to explode.

    What's the deal with the Mongoose bat? Shouldn't there be some standard regulation on the allowed bat size? I don't really know the rules.

    No offense meant, but having bharatnatyam or kuchipudi dancers at the IPL is a ridiculous suggestion. It suits neither party. The obvious option is to do away with them completely.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Sorry!! If it was not clear.. I Wrote it with a pinch of sarcasm. The idea was to do away with the whole thing.
