Mark Waugh, says the recent initiatives to set up parallel Twenty-20 leagues is a bit like junk food.
Among the things he says there..
- its only a novelty and will wear off.
- its not the real thing
- the best team doesnt always win
- players are contracted with the boards (well done BCCI by scrapping those contracts – and rapping those high draw seniors on the knuckles)
- money talks (gee, thanks Mark !).
Now all that may well be, but the parallels with the World Series of Cricket circus are there to see.
This meal’s only going to get upsized….
