thinking about it,
1. where does this money go?
2. is this actually still a domestic competition?
3. how can I get a job for the Indian cricket board, there must be some decent paid jobs around there...

I think one could survive on an average wage, what with all the backhanders that are surely given!

but I don't want to get arrested under the bribery act which as a uk subject I am caught by where ever I am in the world? I can't believe there are any backhanders in India, that is a shocking suggestion! ;) :o :o

You do realise that the BCCI will now try and ban the forum or charge us $10000000000000000000000000 for the rights to discuss the IPL or indeed the current test series further.

In actual fact, A friend of mine owns a printing company, he has his office here in the South, and his machines back in India.
I have just been looking after his dog for the past 5 weeks whilst he has been back on holiday with the family and on business.

He says he has to go back next month to carry on setting up a new company to do with recycling of glass and plastics, he says his sole reason for going back is to pay people off otherwise he would never get anything built.
