I don't dislike the IPL as such, or doubt that it does what you say. I find t20 terrible to watch and dislike the way that test cricket is becoming the poor relation. That means little though and what I like is obviously different to what others will like. I know a lot of people who have been converted to t20 and in the end, if it sells and people want it, that's what we'll get. No problems there.
Then again, taking into account our last summer with that farce at the waca and the rabble that is now the windies featuring in the boxing day test, I can see where t20 could be more appealing.
