Watch ICL 20-20 Season 2: free online cricket highlights from the 2008 Indian Cricket League T20 Championship everyday after the match.
A recap of the previous ICL T20 Cricket tournament is here.
The current season kicks off from 10 October, each match starting at 19:30 pm IST. The 3 Finals will be played between 13-16 Nov. Positioned bang alongside the India vs Australia test cricket series, wonder how much interest it will generate, considering the success of the IPL. Its timing (night in India, a few hours after end of play of the test matches) should probably save it. Ten Sports for sure will be showing it, but its patrons' channel Zee Sports doesn't seem to have accorded it much courtesy. Go to the channel's online cricket section and all the talk is about the Ind-Aus series. An obligatory ad of the ICL's new season hangs on the home page.
Well, it's therefore kind of ironic to watch the promo for the new season (below). Concept-wise it's pretty cool in what it attempts to project the ICL as. Abbas Ali grandson of former Indian cricketer Mushtaq Ali is featured in it. But the last bit is quite odd. I understand the Delhi Giants clothing resembles the Indian team, but there's just too much of an India-Pakistan touch to it that doesn't have any relevance in what ICL is purpotedly upto.
