I agree to disagree with you.

"Dustu goru'r (No pun intended to G) cheye shunno goaal bhalo."

IPL (Any T20 tourney) will teach our batsmen bad things. Will erase the word "patience" from their vocabulary and force them to play no footwork ura-dhura, andha-gunda shots. That is what T20 is all about. Geared towards cheap entertainment for the (I have no time) fans. You love the game you make time.

The format that will hurt these boys learning process of the longer version of the game can only be seen as "evil" to me. My loyalty lies with the team first (Test team first). It is better for them to even sit out and not play at all (rest). - my thoughts.

County contract will come if these boys practice any sort of patience.
