IPL probably. For someone who played in Kerry Packer's league, this is somewhat odd. his dismissal of t20 as not cricket is laughable as he had his own stanford t20 league which was a failure. IPL taking off must have contributed to the saltiness.

Plus the loss in the 83 WC final. He was the 10th wicket. In some interview, he said that he was confident of chasing down the target despite the fall of 9 wickets. He is possibly still mad at being the last man to get out to the "lowly" team.

He used to refer Indian seamers as medium pacers. India producing fast bowlers may also bother him. I don't think its about WI cricket. Ian Bishop cares more about WI. Bishop has said many a time that IPL has unearthed more WI talent than the WI board. Bishop is more professional (more than silly Bhogle) and has gone through a journalism degree. Much better to listen than old fart holding who many liked for his free flowing accent more than his insights.
