IPL ego set to rock domestic England cricket

This is what happens when a country/ organization muscles its economic power to gain monopolistic adventures. The IPL commissioner in his unwarranted wrath against the ICL proclaimed that no county would be allowed to represent England’s domestic structure in the proposed T20 Champions League; represented by an ICL player. This has thrown light on two areas; one the large representation of ICL players playing county cricket & second the actual prowess of the ICL talent pool which shows that it is not a retired player’s league as perceived by cricket pundits & ICL critics.

Finally why is the BCCI making a big fuss about a league that can happily coexist within the parameters of international cricket, at the same time financially benift domestic & international players.
