Default IPL over commercialised

Is it me just alone but I find IPL very very silly because of the over commercialisation. There is an award for everything and sponsor stickers on everywhere, they took up space for player names on jerseys and put them at the bottom as an after though. It feels like you are watching a very bad WWE movie.

I'm old school and don't like the stupidity involved with the IPL. Dancing girls should be kept for the theatre. Why do they accompany the umpires onto the field? Then two, I think, on the field holding the ball for the umpire to collect? Strategic breaks? Yes, I know, its so advertisers can have a slot or two but just a waste of time for us viewers.

So I agree with you.

Must even a break have a named sponsor? CEAT strategic timeout - it's sound like something Trump would do to North Korea.

Here's to praying the T20 Global Destination won't be as vulgar and we can get back to cricket.
