Regardless of any hidden motives that the author of the article might have (I'm not saying that he does and I'm not refuting claims for the motion - I'm just saying I don't give a crap), nothing he has said is a lie. We've been playing cricket since 1975, ODIs since the 80's, have had ODI status since '97 and have been playing professionally for over a decade now. It doesn't matter what others do, but we have to focus on ourselves. I think the author is absolutely right to criticize our propensity to laud mediocrity - this culture of being satisfied too easily has prevailed for too long and needs to go.
Screw the IPL, I'm going to the MLC
