In course of time they will have a better chance of succeeding. IPL is a diploma mill.
Now there are some exceptions like Bill Gates (Sobers type). They are the college dropouts. I wonder how many we have in our (BD players) ranks.
IPL might give them opportunity to play against quality players but the money impact might destroy this young mind. I would request the players (if they read BC) to understand about the consequences and think serously about their career.
