IPL = $$$$$$ for England
The ECB have today released England players for three weeks' play for the IPL. Has this been through player pressure or do the ECB genuinely think that this is a good opportunity for the England players?
NWG is troubled (as she often is).
Three weeks is not a long time. Three weeks is time enough to get injured. And to get injured in April is not long to recover for the congested cricket summer.
It seems a given that Flintoff and KP will be first on the plane (if they make it in time for boarding).
Is the money worth risking their England career? Has the economic downturn really hurt the England players this much?
NWG thinks the answer is no.
