Gideon Haigh on IPL & T20

.
“You might not like it, but it is the way of business. And if business has imposed its values on IPL, that’s only because it was invited, even entreated, to do so, in order that the maximum sums be extracted from the sale of franchises. Face it: the money changers aren’t in the temple, they were sold the keys to the temple; and since then they have changed the locks.”

– Gideon Haigh
