Considering the current craze of twenty twenty, yes other cricketing countries will cash on the cricket leagues. The major problems for the boards would be schedule the matches so as they won't tire the players. The test cricket may berar the grunt as lesser test matches will be played. Pakistan Cricket Board has alredy announced the formation of its league.

first of all they should think whether i can be a successful or not.then they should proceed with the things.if all countries started like this player wont have time to play all the league they signed up.secondly international cricket will be damaged.no one will respect icc.so its very hard for the cricket if every cricket board starts a separate separate league.

I have read somewhere that England is already planning for their 'E'-PL , or something like that. But so far as Cricket is concerned, Indian Sub-continent has been the epicenter of all the passion and enthusiasm attached with the game, and when India has pioneered in this regard - it will be rather difficult for the others to organize a T20 tournament up to the level of IPL at least so far as involvement of the audience is concerned.

Yep it is the exciting thing to do i think if the other countries also start these type of leagues as i think it is the best way for the players to be in the great touch with the cricket and help them in maintaining and improving their form and at the same time that would be quite interesting for the spectators and the lovers of the cricket so that is real excitement going in these leagues. But at the same time it will gonna affect the test cricket and the one day international at the same time but i think there can be the matches scheduled in the different different seasons.

No, I dont think so that they should do. If happens so, Cricket will become the game of money only. Good cricket wont be there. But as far as my knowledge Pakistan is starting with PPL.This is yet to be approved. They are planning for the same format as like IPL.

In the present scenario think yes!! but.. even if they get it done i don't think leagues there will enjoy the great success as IPL has got. The reason being the huge market which none of the countries have got and the most important is the un-parallel passion for cricket which Indian people have in them about the game. League has also been a huge success because of the great interest it has got from different sectors.It couldn't have been possible if the large inflow of money wouldn't have been there.. so overall its a success in India but i don't think it will succeed in other countries!!

Cricket is not a money circulating game,as it is in India, all nations that plays cricket,cricket is not at all a hype there,as it is in India..They will not start IPL,as it will not gain much profit.

i dont think other countries will start as IPL. BCCI is richest of all. so they started. But not other countries would do.
