Good for Indian cricket as the sport has always been about money and glam and less about the sport in particular. As for the return on investment well we all kow that there is no business like show business. The marriage between show business and cricket is indeed going to spell boom for all those who have put their money in it. And who have put their money in it. The showbiz offcourse.

It will be similar to the football premier league of European countries. Gate money and advertisements will help the investors to get back their investment.. .. just like in Europe.
