An excellent article that really addresses the key issues in front of BCCI. But Will anything change with the way cricket is run in India? The plain answer is "no". Simply put, IPL is a third rate TV programme disguised as cricket. Running a business and making it proftable by corrupt means is quite different to nurturing/developing natural talent in a sport like cricket. The IPL is basically owned and run by corrupt politicians of India, the "big" businessmen from India and the elite class with powerful contacts. Their main objective is to make money and not development of cricket or cricketers. They forget for IPL to succeed in the long run, quality domestic players have to perform and unless cricket is given priority, where will quality players come from. IPL is typical of Indian mentality - make a mess of everything and anything we get involved with!
