The Indian Premier League just ended this week, with Royal Challengers Bangalore finally winning their first title. Now, there is nothing left for the world to see, and the BCCI has decided to discontinue the Indian Premier League. (Read: Virat Kohli announces IPL retirement.)
However, the Board did acknowledge that the absence of the IPL would leave a huge crater in the cricketing calendar, and will render many cricketers jobless. To avoid that, the BCCI has announced the possibility of the Cash Premier League (CPL).
This is just a tentative idea, and the rules and format are still a little unclear, but it is rumoured that this event is extremely simple to follow.
The following was tweeted by the Board president, with respect to the event: “Think you’re rich? Invest in the Cash Premier League.” This has increased confusion among fans and prospective investors, because the IPL was also announced by a similar tweet: “Have money to waste? Buy Royal Challengers Bangalore.”
More details regarding this event are expected by the end of this year, but will most likely be announced earlier – knowing Indians and their punctuality track record.
Expert cricket analyst and revolutionary politician, Gautam Gambhir has speculated that the event would involve people stacking cash in piles to no particular end, and Mukesh Ambani getting richer. “It’s a mind blowing idea,” commented Gambhir.
Well of course, there will be more to come and more to witness in the coming times.
