    IPL 2011 - subforum required?

    I'd be interested in hearing members thoughts about whether this year you'd like a sub-forum for the IPL.

    There's 74 matches from April 8th to May 28th and it sees the inclusion of two extra teams in the Kochi Tuskers Kerala and Pune Warriors.

    You know it makes sense.

    Nah. Disagree with the T20 subbie too.

    Not enough people who post in the threads to warrant implementation of the idea, IMHO.

    Agree. Preferably a forum a long way away from Cricket Web.

    We can have two threads- one for match discussion, and another for team developments. I also wish to start a Build-your-IPL-team feature, where we pick our own IPL teams, to see how different (and surely better) than the current team owners.

    Good idea IMO, allows fans of it to discuss it in greater detail without clogging up CC

    A seperate sub forum for just the 2011 IPL seems a little bit over the top. Maybe a sub forum for the IPL generally, or more reasonably 20:20 cricket as a whole.

    Thanks for the thoughts so far guys. I think Arjun's suggestion so far seems like the best idea.

    We've generally wanted to stay away from a sub forum for specific parts of the game, as it means we'd probably end up with all sorts of sub forums making it confusing about where to post various threads and harder to navigate as well.

    I dont mind a sub-forum for IPL on the condition the CC gets a long overdue sticky.
    If I only just posted the above post, please wait 5 mins before replying as there is bound to be edits
