I'm not too keen on the IPL. I find limited overs cricket a bit boring, and i much prefer first-class cricket, ironically.
On top of that are all the glitz and glamour that go with it, i'm not into that, cricket or otherwise. And money. The IPL is all about money and I think that's a great shame.
So the news that Chris Gayle has decided to stay at his francise (not team, francise) rather than come to look after his under-performing team is disgraceful. I'd strip him of the captaincy. If he doesn't want it he shouldn't have it. If the money is more important then let Ramdin be captain, someone who might actually WANT it rather than Gayle.
