IPL Did Not Help Us!!

Do you think the advent of the IPL has given India an advantage in T20 cricket. Having won the inaugural ICC World T20 in 2007 and stolen a march on their rivals by setting up the IPL, many saw Dhoni's side as favourites to triumph again in England. That has not been the case, though, with defeat to the hosts on sunday ensuring they would not even make it to the semis. Do you think that the timing of the IPL may have cost us the World T20 tournamnet? Do you think matches in IPL were low intensity matches, when compared to the international fixtures? Have the Indian team lacked the level of intensity needed in the international game to succeed? Leave comments below. Have fun!

The IPL has to take the blame for its timing just because this team did not have team to be together.The needed to practice like a team and play like a team to win the matches.This was totally missing. Rather I think IPL was a good practise platform for team players,it is just that it should have ended little earlier.
