Champions League? Give us a break
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) continues to hamper international cricket because of their financial clout and standing with the International Cricket Council (ICC). They are so brazen that they have organised a club tournament with the aid of Cricket Australia and South Africa Cricket and they have been calling this, the Champions League. One wonders why cricket continues to lag behind football in popularity and it is not only because of the misinformed comments by the president of Guyana, his excellency Donald Ramoutar, about cricket going to North America, but more than that. There are too many people involved in cricket’s administration who are just in there for their own good. The BCCI because of their financial strength continues to run world cricket from behind the scenes. The Champions League of which this country is a part, because of winning the regional T20 (Twenty20) tournament, is being played by the champions of the different ICC full members and the winner and losers of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
