I frankly do not like the commercial packaging associated with it. I am sure it will be famous in this materailistic world. But really do they desrerve those amount of money? there are so many pople in this country who don't get food, cl;othes and rich person are getting richest like this.

Let us keep our fingers crossed. Huge money and involvement of bollywood starts may not necessarily make it successful. Only thing is huge publicity...will force people to see the matches.....and that may IPL may succeed. Are you a cricket Lover?

I think 20-20 has become just like a movie .But with even larger money involved.I think there is over commercialisation.Auction of players has just become like selling of cattle.There is no doubt that the players will get more money,but dont they has dignity and self esteem? Moreover,Symonds was auctioned for a large sum of money.but,hayden and ponting was not so.May be they seek stars,who have gained fame for other than cricket? Similarly Ishant,who has played a single 20-20 was auctioned more than Umar Gul,the highest wicket taker of the 20-20 world cup. Cheers!
