Cricket in the Times of Indian Premier League Ipl Live Score
Cricket, Glamour and Much More
Again, from the start, many ipl live score administrators and veteran cricketers including stalwarts saw the IPL as the gateway for young talents-it is not clear if they just approved it naturally or due to the money-oriented vested interests. It cannot be denied that young Indian talents did get opportunities through the tournament in terms of both recognition and some assured money; but the point of concern was that the national selectors started looking at the IPL as a yardstick for selection in Team India despite the various domestic ipl live score tournaments being available since decades. Obviously, competitive ipl live score is being played in the IPL with team rivalries for the coveted trophy; however, the intensity generated by national pride-representing one's own country in international ipl live score-can never be compared with the club-centric ipl live score of the IPL involving players of various nationalities. Problem is, the revelers started enjoying IPL matches as three-hour 'live score cricket movies', and the hype only magnified over time. We'll now consider the scenario in the last two-three years.
Thanks to the IPL, an ocean of 'talents' opened up before the national selectors, and IPL became a somewhat 'entrance test' to find a place in the national team. In the roughly two-year period prior to the ICC live score cricket World Cup-2019 Team India was 'different' in almost every match played by them-in any format. In the name of 'finding the perfect team for the World Cup' a process of experimentation began that turned out to be endless-and often mindless with players of dubious record finding repeated chances to play in the national team. An artificial syndrome called 'the number-4 batsman' was also created to justify this. As part of this process various 'lobbies' also began to form around certain 'talented' young cricketers with even live score cricket stalwarts joining these. One of the biggest examples was the peculiar case of 'Rishav Pant'. All the stars of Team India and others are in IPL. The tournament involves one and half months of continuous pressure play, public appearances, late night parties and traveling throughout India. Team India players tend to tire or get hurt. They cannot take the games lightly as they must help their bosses to get returns from their investments. The dirty big money, the glamour and sleaze, the attention and the media hype make them insensitive to national loyalty and pride. They get ferociously loyal to their 'clubs' only and increasingly indifferent to their 'country'. In T20 World Cup-2010 Team India skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni went on making stupendous tactical mistakes and lost all the Super Eight matches.
He failed miserably to motivate his team members on or off the field. More ominously he never once admitted his shortcomings and tried to blame the IPL late night parties and continuous traveling. It had come to such a head that nobody could be believed or taken seriously. The live score cricket Board and the team selectors lost their credentials with the team coach Gary Kirsten blaming the Team India members squarely for lack of motivation and not being mentally or physically fit. The former star cricketers have been saying precious little as many of them had been gagged with IPL money. You cannot believe the media either. They had been hyping the IPL tournament with screaming headlines unbridled glamour mongering and unprecedented coverage. Now, with Team India turning the tables for genuine live score cricket lovers the media had been hyping the aftermath too. They are demanding Dhoni's head and cutting off some other key players. But they are more likely to forget everything as soon as preparation for IPL-4 begins which promises to be longer than even 46 days with addition of two more teams.
