    Because these results are making the entire over-hyped multi-zillion pound IPL, look like just a dodgy sham, with well-paid mercenaries who don't actually give a ****, mixed in with sub-standard Indian pie-throwers..
    Haha well said!

    I'm sure they'll point to the foreign conditions and say if only the tournament was in India.

    Every IPL side has enough quality overseas pros to counter any inexperience in foreign conditions anyway.

    Their players just show zero intensity and zero preparation. Dumb decision making too, like promoting Mitchell Johnson to no 4 and not selecting Brett Lee on a green top

    The complacency is just way too glaring... the hunger is lacking, especially compared to the non-IPL sides...

    LOL at people thinking that the BCCI somehow cares desperately about making an IPL side win. Of course all 3 boards involved would want the IPL sides to at least make the semi-finals because that's what'll ensure the viewing figures. But beyond that I don't think they give a **** who wins the silly thing.

    All they want is $$, and for them to maximise profits an all IPL finals would be ideal.

    It's kind of stink that the IPL teams have multiple foreign players in them - but the other teams are restricted to one each.

    McCullum should have dogged it on purpose against a NZ team.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    I'd rather see no international players outside of their own country's teams tbh.

    Auckland wouldn't have made it this far with that rule.

    Of course they care, all you have to do is hear Ravi Shastri's funeral voice whenever an IPL side loses. Its hilarious. Plus not only does it lose them money but it makes the entire IPL look like ****.

    How can you create a successful sports league when your players quite clearly couldn't care less about winning. The public won't buy it.

    No the selectors unwillingness to play two left armers and love of Mitch Johnson, was what killed his career. He been fit for long time now.

    But with young quicks emerging he days are all most gone, baring a large number of injuries.

    Most have two others have more:

    Australia - 2
    SA - 2
    England - 2
    Sri Lanka - 4
    Bangladesh - 4


    Not sure about Pakistan, West Indies and NZ. End of day it comes down to each board and how many they want. All countries could have 4 of they want. But most are concerned about the lack of changes for local players.

    From Cricinfo report:
    Auckland had every reason to feel at home in Cape Town on Monday night. The North Island climate of their home city was replicated almost perfectly, as an icy south-easterly wind kept Shakib Al Hasan wrapped up in a blanket until he came out to bat, and had the cheerleaders hoping for boundaries to keep them dancing and warm on the sidelines.
    Has Liam Brickhill actually been here?

    yorkshire will get a couple of thrashings at some point you'd expect given how weak they are.

    They also need to stay away from any injuries given the alternatives. The 3 bench guys at the moment have played 5 T20 matches between them(all wardlaw).

    Root needs to stop batting like an imbecile

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left
