Well IPL is being moved out of India for all the reasons in the world. Now IPL stands for Indian Premier League. But who lifted the cup last time around ? Well it was Shane Warne. Interesting isn’t it. An Australian lifting the Indian Premier Legaue. Well if u consider that there are a large number of Indians in Australia, well its not all that bad to think.
Anyways from now on I would refer the event as IPL. I now seriously believe that IPL is a direct challenge to ICC. How? well, ICC can only organize the World Cup every three or four years. But BCCI would do this every year. The best part is that ICC cant do a thing about it. Since last year IPL was held in India, this year it is being moved to South Africa. And its not without a great deal of pitching by South Africa. So if you look at it, BCCI has clearly sidelined ICC by moving IPL to another country.
There is one more thing which comes to my notice when I look at the entire IPL saga. Well its Mahatma Gandhi. Interestingly, Mahatma’s journey started from India. Next he moved to England (So did IPL) and then he went to South Africa. So here is something I predict, like Mahatma, IPL would be kicked out in SA and it will trigger a movement.
IPL being moved out of India or outsourced to South Africa. Well India is sure turning out to be one of the costlier locations to outsource. It would be interesting to see how we Indian react to this. This would surely create history in the world of sports. English Premier League might be held in Afghanistan. NBA would probably be moved to Chile. Wow possibilities are endless. How about moving Olympics to Mars ?
