Well The drama continues in Indian cricket. BCCI is desperate to keep its tight grip on Indian cricket whereas ICL hopes to give the six-team league a foothold in the India market. We have been hearing a lot about Indian Cricket League (ICL). BCCI bosses are not happy with ICL. They are not even ready to recognize ICL and trying their best to derail ICL. While both BCCI and ICL take pot shots at each other the main benefactors seem to the players.Here is what ponting had to say about ICL :-
Ponting: ICL may lure cricketers into early retirement
Ricky Ponting has hit out at the proposed Indian Cricket League (ICL), saying the million-dollar series threatens to tempt ageing cricketers into early retirement while luring youngsters away from national duty.
“It’s only a concern if there is huge money involved in it. If this sort of stuff gets off the ground, these guys won’t even be playing with their mates, they’ll be thrown into made-up teams. You’ll be out there by yourself and trying to win some money,” Ponting was quoted as saying by the Herald Sun.

So the main question is "Whether this situation benefit indian cricket or not ? Also Will this curb the rot in INDIAN cricket?" These questions remain to be answered.Guess people in INDIA must wait and watch as the drama unfolds.
