Not one IPL team has made it to the semi-finals of the Champions League Twenty20. Somewhere a marketing twat mournfully draws a descending line on a profit forecast.

Clearly having only three out of the eight IPL teams qualify for the Champions League leaves the cricketainment outfits woefully underrepresented. Next year, only the worst IPL side will fail to qualify by rights. It will have to play a qualifier against the winners of Zimbabwe’s domestic Twenty20 league.

Playing in home conditions on their home grounds didn’t help either. Home sides get a 20 run head start? Away sides have to spend the night before each match in a room full of weasels? Needless corrective footwear for opposition bowlers?


Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. It does mean I have even less interest left in it whatsoever though, I can’t cheer on the IPL opposition.

    Hmm, Come on T&T.

  2. Enjoying it hugely. Viva the Real Teams!

    But how are the little British franchise weasles are taking it? On the one hand franchise seems a waste of money when up against real teams. But then again our Real Teams were crap.

    But then again it’s only T20…. Come on T & T

  3. I actually went onto cricinfo to check if this was a real story.

    Is this proof of my stupidity or just proof of how greedy I think Lalit Modi can get?
