This BCCI's child has problems right from its birth, and the latest addition is the departure of some Aussies and New Zea landers from the game in between, to represent their country in the forthcoming tours. and soon the South African will be joining them. Thus creating a problem with the much hyped league.
The main reason for this problem is the non consideration of IPL by ICC in their calender years. Thus letting this IPL child in trouble in its first year itself.
Still, IPL has a long way to go to become a successfully sports league as English premier League, the worlds most professional sports league. It has to act smartly and wisely to set an example to most of the to be followed cricket leagues in the world.
