Cricket fans want to see the bests of the game play. Cricket boards have to ensure that. IPL is good; but its greediness will kill many cricketers as well as cricket. Cricket boards (and the ICC) are responsible for that. For example, leagues likes ICL should have been allowed, while the ICC could regulate the duration of such leagues. This way players were not going to burn out and International cricket would have not suffered.

Neel has explained the politics behind the decisions of the SLC and WICB. Cricket is all political now and that's what I hate the most. Terming Gayle, Malinga, Alok or SN as traitors will not solve the problem. They are professional cricketers, cricket is their profession, cricket is not a charity.

there is a bigger problem with allowing tournaments like ICL. no sports administering body would tolerate a parallel sporting body. and it is better for cricket that way. for one, something like ICL is not connected to the domestics and has absolutely zero obligation to either domestics in India or to ICC or other boards.
for example IPL pays every mother board 10% of the fees of its players, ICL had no reason to do that. (f.e BCB will get 10% of what shakib gets from IPL)
even worse, if ICL became popular soon they could have challenged ICC itself and poached away players from mainstream cricket altogether, like what happened during the packer circus. no, it's best that these type of tournaments remain within the ambit of ICC and its member boards.

god forbid, we could have had a situation like in chess where the best players couldn't play each other because they swore allegiance to different bodies. there were two chess world champions !

cricket administration, like any other sport has always been political.

I don't agree. I don't see how. if anything tournaments like IPL and to a lesser extent big bash allows players to play with a free mind without having to bother about their livelihood. IPL has been there for 4 years and if anything cricket, including test cricket is in better health than it was 4 years ago.

ICC does not and should not have the right to interfere in domestic competitions. that is a recipe for disaster.

IPL is India's tournament but you can not consider it a domestic tournament. IPL might have started out as a just domestic tournament but it moved past that. If IPL was just a domestic tournament it wouldn't have been that successful in SA. You take out big players that are not from India and IPL will find it very difficult to attract international crowd, it will still be a huge hit because of the large Indian fan base but not as big as it is now. The best way to deal with this problem (board having issue with players not being available and all that) put IPL on the ICC calendar.

Neel, I could give thousand reasons why ICLs should have been allowed with some regulations imposed by the ICC. But do not want to discuss it with you. Have a good day.

Because players in the IPL can earn in 4 weeks what they would earn in 2-3 years playing for their boards, now tell me honestly, if you were in Gayle's shoes or Malinga's shoes, what would you do?
Any logically minded player would play for the IPL over country, the professional approach
