ICL has given a serious Jolt to the Cricket world and mainly the ICC. In a dramatic incident majority of Bangladesh cricket players has joined Indian Cricket League “the unofficial T20 cricket league” as termed by ICC.
This is an irreparable damage to Bangladesh, who is currently going through a bad time. Gone are the golden days for Bangladesh cricket when it was best known as the surprise package for everyone, they have stunned the best teams in the cricketing world.
But this is a great setback to the Bangladesh Cricket at the time when they are struggling to get the test status from quite some time. And it is a even more worst thing for ICC which is having a monopoly in the cricketing world and it is now awarding legal status to the ICL ( Indian Cricket League) promoted by Zee group.
Aftab Ahmed , Dhiman Gosh and Habibul Bashar, the Pilar of Bangladesh cricket are no more with the team and the future of Bangladesh cricket looms in danger.
This might be the just beginning of the divide in the cricketing world and all this is because of some wrong people with wrong attitude. Lastly I would say that what ever happens, at the end of the day we all cricket lovers want the Cricket should blossom and becomes one of the greatest games.
