The Not-so-IPL's first toilet break

Submitted by rickeyre on April 18, 2009 - 9:37pm

Ten overs down in this funereally slow game of Indian domestic cricket being played in Cape Town. The Cleveland Mumbai Indians are 64 for 1 against the Chennai Sub Super Kings. And now we have the 7.5 minute toilet break... the Modi Mafia call it a "tactical time out", but it's really just an excuse to squeeze an extra five minutes of ads into each innings. Here in Australia it means more prattle from Huddo and Campbo on One Digital (part of the soon-to-go-bankrupt Channel Ten empire).

Oh the agony. Twenty20 is supposed to be a fast game. All I can say after the first hour is that this is shaping up as a Dog of a Tournament.
