During IPL, children stay indoors even during summer vacations and adults suddenly have a sick stomachs and skip going to work so they can catch a game in their city. Nothing like that is happening with T20 Champions League cricket. I thought I will write down 10 reasons why this tournament is a flop show! […]

T20 matches are back on after a very exciting Test series between India and Srilanka. The T20 match in Nagpur was sold out long before the match day. This points to the phenomenal interest in T20 cricket. Make not mistake about this, I might find Test cricket as the ultimate in Cricket but I am a huge […]
