Probably the most gorgeous and most talked-about event of cricket called the IPL T 20 cricket championship has been cancelled due to some legal problems. The opening league that was to feature 20 top domestic teams from India, Australia, England and South Africa was scheduled from 30th Sept – 8th Oct is now under water.
Lalit Modi, the person behind successful organizing the IPL T 20 cricket tournament, has claimed that the tournament will not be abounded rather it would be rescheduled. Though Modi has not told in details but media assumes the main reason behind this delay is the disagreement between the participating nations regarding some sort of financial terms.
The mega event of $US 10 million was supposed to take place between the final of the Champions Trophy and the Oct 9 starter India-Australia test series.
On the other the England Cricket board has said that they can’t oppose their players from playing the ICL, opposed by BCCI, as it is illegal.
