What more? Modi plans for IPL in USA

The Indian Premier League Commissioner Mr. Lalit Modi nowadays has sleepless nights. First he introduced IPL. Then he took IPL to South Africa making it International Premier League. What else has he done for IPL 3? He signed deals to broadcast IPL live on Youtube and to screen it live in theaters all over India.

So whats his next step?

He has met with the US Cricket Chief for what?. To move IPL into The United States. He discussed with the USA Chief to bring Champions League T20 in US as soon as next year and to allow top US Players play in IPL.

His decision is very interesting.

Why does Modi do this?

He says USA and the North American continent has the second largest viewership  and revenue for Indian Cricket and the IPL.

He adds that the meeting is successful and very near in future cricket will become popular in USA.

What does Lockerbie say to this?

IPL is a powerful product in sports and has fame all over the globe. Cricket USA and IPL will work hard to make cricket popular in Northern America.

  1. I was wondering if Modi could be made coach of our national team at present. With people like John Buchanan, and the whole breed of laptop coaches around lately, Lalit Kumar wouldn’t exactly be a bad choice. He supremely tech savvy, he’d have all the training and party schedules of his team all jotted down on his Blackerry neatly. Using his powers of persuasion or bullying, or his ways over people, Modi would pressure all boards over the worlds to not allow any tournaments featuring India to be played in any other place other than India. This would help our team immensely so they are in ship shape condition to be the flat track bullies that they are after the IPL finishes

    Modi will help ensure that all overseas players have to attend awesome sleazy parties every night before they play India. On the mind games front, Modi has no parallel. He would take over all press conferences and train the otherwise not so eloquent Dhoni in the art. He will intimidate and surprise the opposition with these mind games just like Jose Mourinho does, except that the Special One knows a thing or two about football. Think of it, Modi was the country’s Special One after all not so long time ago, wasn’t he?
