India are taking one-day cricket to a different level. Have you seen the way they are playing in New Zealand? Then compare that to what we did out there last year.This is an interesting read. While there may be an element of truth to the statement, it somehow doesn't quite add up. For example, how does that explain India getting thrashed in the T20s in NZ? Sehwag has always been a force to reckon with as far as strike rate and dominance is concerned, how much would one season of IPL have changed that? Sachin didn't play the IPL and hardly plays T20s. They've been instrumental in the ODI wins.
On the lighter side, it seems to be a veiled plea to the ECB to not hinder the participation of English players in the IPL. It's like me justifying to my manager why an onsite stint would be good for business.
