Default If picked, will IPL be a friend or foe of BD cricket development?

I know this subject matter may be premature or a waste of time depending on the outcome of the much awaited IPL auction for our beloved BD players but it’s begging to be discussed. The answer of the afore-mentioned question should very much dictate whether or not we should welcome or reject IPL auction.

I know that the much financially starved cricketers of Bangladesh deserve every penny they can get from a foreign franchise such as IPL. But the question is, will this huge sum of money be good for the development of Bangladesh cricket?


If Shakib or any one from BD gets picked for a huge chunk of change then

Pros:


  • IPL contract is a huge reward for their hard work and when rewarded everyone tries to do even better.
  • If one gets rewarded for his hard work then the rest will only try to play catch up which will create competition and better performance.
  • Everyone also seems to do better when a role model is found, Shakib’s inclusion in IPL could be a catalyst as such.
  • IPL contract may also result in a lack of interest for ICL amongst other BD players stopping the exodus. (which is a wrong label)
  • The exposure to such competition will teach our developing cricketers’ the skill, technique and the mental strength from the high-pressure that such short form of cricket has to offer.

Cons:


  • The huge pay day can also be detrimental to this young minds who may get the “king of the world” feeling and become complacent.
  • Their commitment to IPL could be short but it could very well take the responsibility or commintment away from the national matches where pride and glory form most part of their paycheck.
  • They may not even do their 100% on the field trying to keep them injury free to keep the IPL contract intact and paycheck coming.
  • (depending on how many) Their absence from the NCL due to their involvement in IPL may have an adverse effect to the overall quality of the league and thus loosing interest for the local spectators and clubs.

So I guess the answer to my own question is rather leaning toward the positive outcome of the IPL but some of you may argue and we are all ears to hear them. Please bring it on………..

There are definetly both pros and cons but if the boys can earn success and still have national duty in mind it should be a good thing

i reckon it will be a good thing because if they get picked up by an IPL team then if they want to keep their spot and if they want to keep their value up then they're going to have to perform. plus they'll be around some really good cricketers which imo can only help them develop better.

Big time Foe.

For our boys I am against all kind of T20 games. Emnei impatient. If they play more of these sort of jodi laigga jai matches they will be soon follow their T20 performance in test. Which in clear words will out in one session.

Tigers_eye , you are giving 20-20 more credit that it deserves.Players wont change overnight.ODI cricket has improoved the quality of Test cricket over the years and the same will happen with 20-20.

I am not a big fan of 20-20 not because its going to diminish the quality of cricket (I think it will improove) but rather it might slowly kill Test cricket by virtue of its popularity.

If you look at the people who shined in last IPL or the 20-20 WC you would see that only good players have succeeded ..

There was a dicsussion on slogging in another thread ..sloggers will not succeed any form even in 20-20 , they might have a good innings here are there (which is true in ODI and tests) but will eventually fail.

Shewag and Ghambir are good in all forms so will Marsh and Watson.Class players will succeed in any format.The only thing I see different in this format is that this game is a young mans game, its hard to see the old timers tailor their game to this new format.This happened when ODI's were first introduced.Its more to do with adapting to the format than anything else.

t20 cricket is alot about doing the basics right imo, sure sloggers will do ok, better than in other versions but you can still perform well in t20 cricket by batting with true cricket shots and bowling in the right area's (i'd say the best t20 players are the ones who do this the best).

Just like Mr. Anderson said in Matrix, IPL (not 20/20) is a DISEASE. Money making machine which will kill the real cricket - TEST.

ICL will not help our cricketers. What our cricketers need is more 3-4 day matches so they can work on their application. 20/20 is parar cricket with a little bit of class (depending on the quality of the player) and a lot of entertainment.

I don't see what 'tips' they're going to get. Tips on playing twenty20 cricket? Absolutely useless.

Friend. They won't get another similar chance to play 2 months in a row against quality oppositions while being part of a quality team. It should also equip them to handle pressure situations better.

In terms of quality, ODI is probably the worst among Test, ODI and T20. Compared to ODIs, there's far less room to succeed while being mediocre in the highest and most basic forms of the game.

Word for word. If T20's are going to replace anything, it'll be the ODI's.

I'm more worried about test cricket then ODIs. The thrill of BANG BOOM cricket will definitely keep lots of folks excited and even ODIs will be considered too long for them. BD batsmen already prefer to play 20/20 in ODIs. However, test and quality cricket will probably be the biggest loser. It is what it is. Dukkho koreo luv nei.

One can't kill another one, it can only contribute. This debate is as old as 'Juta Abishkar'. Natural resistance only. 20 can help test cricket to improve further, just like ODIs have improved the standard of test cricket. ICC went upto banning the ODIs & players with same reasons, but ultimately we have seen that it didn't kill test cricket rathar improved. We see more decisions in test cricket, better runrates & chases. So one form of cricket will never kill another format of cricket, it will only help to improve.

Bonus, the playes are getting more money, the boards are having an opportunity of making more money from 20-20 tournaments, that brings more money into cricket, so cricket is benefitted. Chartable sports don't progress in these days, it has to be economically profitable to improve a game.

So just relax and enjoy some T20 boom boom occassionally, good for mind, soul & health.

I don't understand how some of you don’t want to acknowledge the valuable learning sessions they will get by either playing or being in the same dressing room from great players of IPL. Surely everyone gets to learn few tricks in a series from a great player even when they play against each other but if they play for the same team, don’t you think a great player such as Warne will have few things to teach to a fellow player (that may or may not be Shakib)?

I understand that lack of patience is like a disease for our batsmen and I do agree that 20-20 doesn’t improve the situation but I don’t think it will make it worse. In fact, our batsmen (if given the chance) may come away with valuable winning skill from very demanding 20-20 situations. Especially as a bowler, there’s no other game that’s more brutal then 20-20 and if Shak or Mash play and do well that would definitely be a self booster for the ODI’s as well.

So I guess I’m gonna have to go with IPL on this topic as we are not arguing whether they are good for the world cricket rather BD cricket and it’s cricketers.

I think IPL has improved the overall quality of Indian Cricket. There is no reason why it should not do the same for BD cricket as well.

I have gone through the Cons list from betaar. But the solution lies in itself. As it is evident from the ürevious season that to get selected in the playing XI,our players will have to perform when they get the slighest of chances. So, they are bound to perform and they will get kicked, if they do not play professionally. They will be playing for and against the bests of the world. This experience is sure to help them, while playing for Bangladesh.
