Lalit Modi is not going to stop anywhere. The head of the so called great cricketing leagues is planning to organize the marathon tournament twice in a year from 2011. This is simply a classic example of fulfilling one desire and ambition. He is not aware by this move he is going to do an irreparable damage to the gentle men's game. The International Cricket Council is only going to support this move as they as looking to add some huge amount of dolors to their kitty. The ICC can't even think of apposing this move because of millions of dollors flowing to their pocket as well.
But this marathon event will curtail the international cricketing calender up to a great extent and with the growing popularity and increasing money in IPL, every player would love to be the part of this form of cricket.
But Mr.Modi is not bother about the vintage Ashes rivalry, the indo pak rivalry, all this will vanish due to the IPL monster.
So Mr Modi for the sake of personal interest just don't ruin the game other wise our coming generation will no longer take any interest in original form of the game which is also called the test of one's character.
