The TV channels are going at it non-stop as if the IPL is the only thing that matters. In fact, by this blatant play for money, the BCCI is drawing attention to itself and the money hungry cricketers. With the IPL a haven for retired and has been cricketers from abroad and sons and nephews of local big wigs, does it really matter whether IPL is on or off?
I strongly feel that it is high time that the income of BCCI is subject to taxation. In these tough times, there is no reason for the BCCI to sit on a cash pile which serves no purpose to anyone in the world.
Personally, it is much better if such an event is held in UK where distances are small, weather better and daylight hours are long. And, gate revenues should be better there.
