Modi also said that he was not overly concerned by the possibility of overseas players withdrawing from the event. "The heavens aren't going to fall if that happens. This is an Indian tournament; we have the key Indian players and only a few international players."
After such a statement, I might actually follow IPL this season.
Modi saab, in spite of the pure evil that he might seem, will manage to prove something if such a thing happens - that, the game is bigger than the sportsman. (Now, whether the game being refered to here is the sport itself, is another matter.)
Btw, anyone called the Bullying Helpline there yet, KP?
