It's T20. Basically, dessert after the real scrumptious meal or the opening act of a concert before the band people paid to watch get on. Whichever way you look at it, it's T20. It doesn't satisfy any cricket lover's needs.
What is worse with this particular T20 tournament is the fact that his Modiness is back to make tons and tons of money which he will spend on building Modiland. Modiland will grow in size with every IPL and Champions League, till it becomes a full-out country with Modi as their king, ordering the Roys and the Freddies to kidnap little children so he can eat them. Those who survive will become DLF maxmimum hitting, Bollywood queen choosing, retired cricketers bashing sportsmen.
Eventually Modiland will take over the world.
Do I really want that? Just because I live in a country that shows horrifyingly old black and white flicks in the same channel that's supposed to be exclusively covering cricket? The country where angry, violent hooligans with sticks beat tea-sipping, guard wearing men...leaving me cricket starved?
Or do I want to risk the rise of ModiEarth because for once, T20 league teams in other countries will be getting the same amount of exposure as the IPL teams. It will be a lot of fun to see whether the teams in the IPL are REALLY as exciting and entertaining as they seem to be. The winning and losing parts are not particularly of any interest to people. They just want the fireworks.
Finally, do I want to allow the Modi galaxy takeover because school is getting crazy busy and I need a valid excuse to procrastinate now, panic later? Eventually ensuring a happy ending for myself of course.
Hmm, maybe I do. Maybe, just maybe, this Champions League will be worth putting all these ideas in Modi's big, fat head. Don't worry. None of this is to come true as long as I am here. His devilish plans all have to be approved by a higher evil power. That power goes by the name of Cricket Minded.
