IPL Withdrawal Symptom

Is this because of trolling in the IPL forum? lol because I dont think the IPL has been any more exciting. It has always been like this.

That too :laugh: 

 

It's not about exciting. It's about a match to follow every day and there's always a nice matchup or two. It sort of grows on you and as @tweakermentioned, it's addictive. Before you know it you are waiting for the match every day :agree:

Any ideas about other leagues..BBL,PSL

Are they as exiting as IPL

Never followed any of those. PSL is akin to the B'desh league and pretty low standard with lots of no-name players. For BBL, the playing time doesn't suit me at all so can't follow.

 

But IPL is the only one which has Indian players and that's why there can't be any league comparable to it. Plus it has the biggest stars.

@Ultimate_Game I know you have been around the forum for a while but it's the first time you participated in the troll fest that is this forum :phehe:

 

troll fest by Dhoni fans...the rest just spread wonderful acumen :yay:

 

 

 

True that. Never had time or inclination to do so earlier but this time round had time to spare :phehe: 

 

And it was fun :agree:

They could have postponed yesterdays game and scheduled it today but that would have been rain curtailed as well.

They should have done so. IPl is the biggest and most high profile cricket league in the world. Surely they could afford to have reserve days. Yesterday's match was a sham and it doesn't reflect well on IPL. Sure SRH would've lost but you never know - funnier things have happened in cricket. If it rains 2 days in a ow it's a different story but you have to do your best to ensure the result is as fair as possible.

 

I mean can you imagine a NFL or MLB playoff game being shortened due to weather? They will play the game in 2 feet of snow or driving rain if they have to.

I remember following ipl the year it started and then I did not follow it for the next few years.

 

A few years my in laws and parents would visit during ipl  season and I never got to see any matches.

 

I started watching ipl seriously only from 2014 and now I am  totally addicted.:hippie:

Am beginning to suffer from IPL withdrawal syndrome already. It was fun to follow a game everyday and double-headers over the weekend for the past month and a half. Now I'm so used to it that it seems a bit off putting when there are no matches :sad: 

 

IMO I wouldn't mind a 4 month IPL season followed by a 1 month break, then rest of the intl matches or tourneys for 6 months and another 1 month rest period followed by IPL :agree: 

I'm going to re-read the entire Jeeves series by PG Wodehouse after the IPL.

Sure, in any case, there is no end to the burn being caused by Brady. He is still winning Championships.
