Modi has lost his damn mind



Cricket fans of the world: "Lalit, the IPL is an enjoyable enough waste of everyone's time. But please sort out the number of games played. It's ridiculous"

Modi: "You're right, it is ridiculous. Ridiculous that we're throwing money away by not squeezing as many games in as possible. So from next year each team will play 18 group games instead of 14!"

Cricket fans: "Lalit, you tit, we meant LESS games not more!"

I'm in shock, although I shouldn't be surprised. The one thing you could say about the IPL that even though it was garish and overly long, at least the format was fair. Each time plays every other team home and away. Now what? How do you add 4 group games for each team?

5 days after the next IPL ends, the T20 world cup begins. I'm sorry but that's overkill. They finally have a format that "the people" love and they're going to kill the damn thing because of greed.

Modi wants to play the IPL for as long as possible. For as many months as possible in a year. When the golden goose is dead, Modi will walk away with enough money to last him a lifetime and all us fans will be poorer.

We must stop him at all costs. Or at the very least endeavour to get a slice of the action.
