India Premier League - Money Game :
59 matches...44 days...over 5 million dollar prize money... 723 million dollar
committed by Franchisees and ... And the fever is on. Everyone is waiting for
18th April to feel the same....
Premier League for Football, PHP or I league again in Football, National
Basketball League in Basket ball have all made a lot of difference in several
countries and these led to the birth of Indian Premier League, a billion dollar
baby, from the brain of BCCI vice president Lalit Modi.
looking at the benefits of IPL, we have a few to count them on. First being the
benefit of expertise and experience from International Player. Team constituting
of eight foreign players of which only four can be in the starting XI, four
players from the local catchments area and four Under-22 players, this will help
to learn a lot from the international players to our growing Cricketers. No
doubt, the gain by playing will prove invaluable, whether it be in terms of
stronger Nation Team, getting in-depth knowledge or Cricket as a Sport of the
World. Breaking the boundaries between the countries of the World and play as
one team, is indeed a great benefit, which shows a world as a single great place
to be bonded in all respects.
when we count more on benefits, we have to start looking for words without base.
Will it do any good to Cricket?? With Cricketers getting bonus with a single win
and a lot of offers from media pouring in, it reflects positive as well as
negative impact. Isn't it only Money which is pulling every nation and their
great players to come up and play Cricket? Yes, money seems to be prime factor
by ICC and national administrators. Advertising Money, Franchisee Money and
money from different sources pouring in from a long time before the League. The
idea of players disappearing off to play franchised cricket would be hugely
detrimental to national sides and eventually ruin the game. Looking at the
development of Country Cricket, there will be no theatre for players to develop.
at the administrative view, it's only the money which brings actors, business
community, players, politicians everyone at the same place. On the whole, the
love of game is suppressed to a great extent in front of the glory and shine of
money which is blinding most of us. Looking at the overall impact, the IPL is
going to do some damage with BCCI, for putting their own greedy aims ahead of
the needs of cricket.
IPL is a great initiative taken for Sports in India... We could say yes, if
Cricket were the only Sports in the Sports category... But looking around, there
are many other sports which have gone behind the halo of Cricket; there is
darkness in the scarcity of any thoughts about the other Sports. Talk around the
globe is India has willingness and money to do this innovative thing then why
won't players around the globe will come ahead. But if India has money why the
talents in Table Tennis, Chess, and F1 are are not coming up.
as IPL as a brainchild of Lalit Modi, do we need one amongst us to be brain
parent of other sports to come up and prove itself, but before expecting this,
we need to come ahead to build in confidence to show the zeal of India in other
sports. There are many other sports in India which are getting suppressed with
lack of funds, lack of knowledge, lack of proper guidance and so on....
looking at the positive aspect, what we want is zeal amongst the youth of India
to come ahead and carry forward their enthusiasm and passion for Sport other
than Cricket. Currently, everywhere the glory of Cricket is brightening and we
are moving towards that brightness, but someone needs to take a light from
darkness to light the other sports in India.
