In league with money?
Neeru Bhatia, writing for the Week, says that while the IPL has been a cash cow for the BCCI, the league has not helped in discovering talent to serve Indian cricket in the long run.
Cricket-wise, though, the benefits appear few. Even though domestic players are getting a chance to rub shoulders with Indian and international stars, IPL has not helped in discovering talent to serve Indian cricket in the long run. There have been flashes in the pan, like Manvinder Bisla, KKR's star in the final match against Chennai Super Kings. But similar talents like Paul Valthaty, Swapnil Asnodkar and Kamran Khan have been one-season wonders.
