The ICC board said the agreement was made to ensure the concept of ‘nation-versus-nation cricket’ was given the highest priority.
Well, I won't say it's not possible that nation-versus-nation cricket cannot die / lose steam, considering the kind of following that football clubs in Europe have. But I really have my doubts. As an avid cricket fan, I'm sure I'd rather cheer for India rather than Chennai / Mumbai / whatever. But then that's just me. Any comments? IPL or International Cricket?
