    BCCI's arm twisting scuttled the ICL

    Haha, what a shocker....I bet nobody figured that BCCI might have been twisting people's arms and causing the ICL to fail....

    if IPL is a controlled sore, ICL would.ve. been a cancer.

    In retrospect, excellent work by BCCI to weed it out early.

    The team uniforms were the most garish I've ever seen in my life.

    Didn't they have 9s in the ICL, if you cleared the stadium as well as the rope?

    The ICL was an unbelievably poor standard. Was depressingly bad!
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Well a large part of that was due to the BCCI's pressure of not allowing many many players to participate where they otherwise would have.
