The second the information concerning the South African T20 league and the UAE T20 league got here out, the ‘previous powers’ began squirming and acquired their apologists to have a go on the IPL. By all means, take care of your cricket pursuits however hey, please don’t intrude in ours and inform us what to do,” Gavaskar wrote in his column for Sportstar.
