Holdingwilley The second best way to enjoy cricket

What to do with India?

First, they refuse to involve themselves in twenty20 cricket. Then some people think twenty20 is a good idea. The BCCI reverses its decision and attempts to cash in on twenty20 and sets about ruining the lives of anyone involved in the original “rebel” league.

The BCCI’s own “legitimate” league is a farcical, purely commercial affair that ignored its effects on any other country.

Following the “amazing success” of the IPL, a Champions League of between domestic champions from across the world is announced. As soon as it is publicised, the BCCI decide to remove the English, because some of their players thought that twenty20 was a good idea before they did.

Then, the BCCI unilaterally announced that the international players playing for their sides would remain in their Indian team, presumably, they will be forced to play against their own home side.

These buggers must be stopped.

I reckon we should remove the Indian teams from the Champions League, except for perhaps the ICL sides, which should solve some of our player-overlap problem. Then we naturalise Geoff Boycott as an Indian citizen, and make sure he’s on the telly all the time. That’ll learn ‘em.

That'll learn 'em good.

He has this to say about himself : I used to flail predictable leg-spinners at batsman on TwickenhamGreen. Then they used to smash me for six. This dynamic was repeated many times. Now I hide behind words, where the pain of the constant tonking can’t hurt me, and where only lawyers attempt sneaky singles. Now, I have developed into the wizard spinner of written cricket; an unplayable googly in words. I have become blog, destroyer of careers. )
