IS IPL going to change the looks of the world cricket?IPL has stormed the cricketing world where one can see the smoke in australian camp. Even a captain like pointing is asking cricket australia to permit him to play IPL. Adding to this their cricket manager saying that the players are not afraid to retair if they are not permitted to play IPL. By this we can understand the importance of IPL that is backed by the most richest cricketing board in the world i.e., BCCI. There should not be any doubt BCCI becoming most influencial after ICC in the world of cricket. We can notice this by the approach of players who are willing to join I.P.L. at the cost of their place in the team. I am curious to know about your comment? your's prasad.
