Exxxtraaa Innings- MTPL- Day1. Match1. Tharoor Vs Modi

Modi Tharoor Premier League was inaugurated with all fanfare. There were fire works, laser shows, wrestling bouts and total fun & frolic at the inaugural function. IPL3, Inaugural looked an insignificant affair in comparison.

In an inspiring inaugural match, Tharoor tied with Modi. Even the super over failed to bring in any results. The first match was declared as a super tie. Man of the match, Karbon Kamal catch, DLF sixer were shared equally between the two.

Each team exhibited its brand of Batting ( threats & counter threats), Bowling ( Howlers & Gossips) & fielding ( Glamour) to the utmost degree. No quarter was given or asked. End result greatest tie of all times in Match.1 .

Unlike IPL3. there seem to be no fixed fixture for number of matches. It would be interesting to see, who would be the ultimate winner. When contacted, BCCI officials came up with a statement that MTPL is outside BCCI, ICC purview. However they added that tournaments like MTPL, keeps the game alive and now we have a more interesting brand of cricket, after ODI and T.20.
BCCI & ICC would promote more such tournaments in future, and also would rate the tournaments, in the order of merit. ECB & ACB lamented that this is another, move by the sub continent Cricket bosses particularly BCCI, to garner glory using their money power.
