    Yea Andy, don't dwell on things that "The Coder" says. IPL has both pros AND cons. What's scary is that persons like him (or her) have successfully convinced themselves that cons don't exist (when the IPL is involved of course). So convinced in fact that they have counted "100 or so articles" on Cricinfo that ONLY bash the IPL?? 100 or so?? Maybe when I'm retired from all forms of work, I will take up the task of trying to count the 100 or so articles which apparently serve no other purpose than to bash the IPL. lol

    Scruton Wole bit--hilarious! "live rhinocerous for wedding cake..." and "bowling bouncers at myself..." self-reflexive ridiculousness--more please. Whose voice is it? Who wrote that piece? Tell, tell--dying of curiosity.
