0IPLوIPL - في "إكس فاكتور" مع الكرة لعبة الكريكيت

Up until a week or so ago I hadn’t had the ‘pleas­ure’ of watch­ing any of the Indi­an Premi­er League.

As the name of this site sug­gests, I ‘adore crick­et’ so thought to myself well why not. أنه ينطوي على الخفافيش والكرة, bats­men and bowl­ers so can’t be that bad.

كيف كنت على خطأ. I man­aged to brave half an hour before it gave me a head­ache. It is truly a dread­ful spec­tacle for any­one who cher­ishes our won­der­ful game.

The Indi­an Premi­er League, or ‘IPL’ to give the ‘game’ it’s almost com­puls­ory abbre­vi­ation is as far removed from the sport of crick­et as I know and love it as it is pos­sible to be.

There were no tac­tics on show from either bats­men – oth­er than slog it as hard as pos­sible – or from the bowl­ers – try and stop the bats­man from scor­ing – and in the mean­time build the crowd up into a cres­cendo of child­like whoop­ing and howl­ing.

Every now and then some trum­pet or some­thing sim­il­ar would sound and the crowd would screech even louder – as if they were young girls at a One Dir­ec­tion gig. I don’t know where this trum­pet rack­et came from – but it appeared to be part of the show.

والمعرض هو فقط ما كان هذا. It wasn’t a game but almost akin to an epis­ode of the X-Factor or some oth­er such eye aching dross on the goggle box.  How a sport based on class and cul­ture has been dragged to these depths is bey­ond me.

I really struggle to see how this rub­bish dif­fers from base­ball

حسنا, so it brings in some money and prob­ably lots of it but it’s a case of selling your soul to the dev­il – and I for one want no part of it.

Bring me the County Cham­pi­on­ship any day of the week!
