The IPL auctions happened.
It dint even register with me.
The Englishmen went for big numbers. Good for them.
Thilan Thusharas had picked up a nice little paycheck. Good for him.
Lalit Modi’s gloating about how his brainchild hasnt been hit by the recession. Good for him.
The IPL is not something I go out of the way to make time for.
I’d do it for a test match but not for a 3 hour slogfest.
I was more than happy to just check the scorecards on cricinfo the day after last time. I’m guessing I will follow a similar routine this year.
A lot of people who were anti-IPL have been converted, but I still havent caught the bug yet.
The big story was of course kitten Mortaza. 50k to 600k. I’d probably convert too if that were me.
Nuwan Kulesekara’s unlucky not to get a bid in. He’s had a pretty good year.
Spare a thought for the rest these buggers though.
The poor sods
