    Champions League Query

    If the ICC is clearing a spot for the Champions League, then why is Pakistan being snubbed?

    Have to admit, I'm not too big on this Champions League idea. Trying to copy football too much.

    I'm surprised that during an exciting 2020 bowl off a batsmen isn't allowed to try and pad the ball away from the stumps tbh

    I actually like the CL. Get to see new faces and stuff. Ideally the IPL would be shorter and of a smaller scale with fewer international players like the BBL and possibly SLPL. Then there wouldn't be so much T20 overload and the Champions league would actually be fun to watch.

    I hate that there are no Pakistani players in either, there are some really good T20 bowlers in Pakistan

    Or tip it over the stumps with his gloves for that matter.

    Good point. In fact, they should remove the middle stump and make just the one long bail that fits across

    Good ploy. Also the bowler instead of bowling it should simply kick the ball from the crease towards the stumps. We're getting ahead of ourselves here aren't we?

    Haven't gone far enough if you ask me. The umpires should blow a whistle instead of signalling too

    Should have yellow cards and red cards dealt out for all the sledging. Wait, that might not be a bad idea actually. Bhaji to be the first one sent off.

    Agreed. Some of his teammates might get selective hearing though - Too far, too far?

    I think bowlers should be renamed strikers and what's this rubbish red ball that's always getting used

    Can we get both sides to have 11 on field at once instead of this 11 on 2 nonsense? Always felt it was unfair tbh
