IPL will never ban...They are here to EARN money and banning International players will let them lose Fan following...Plus IPL is not here to honor or recognize or send serious message of cricket.. its only a place to EARN CRAZY money! simple

There is such a thing as a straw that breaks the camel's back. Heck almost everybody who isn't Australian hates the Aussie way of playing cricket. Starc could have injured Pollard. Was it deliberate? After forty years of watching Aussies play cricket against us. I know just as well as Pollard did and I probably would have hit my target!
