Celebrity Cricket League(CCL)– So Disgusting!!!

I happened to see a glimpse of the Celebrity Cricket League (CCL) the other day. This is one of the most disgusting things I have seen on TV. Here are 22 people, most of them who can hardly run playing cricket and hundreds of people cheering for them. After seeing the various greats like a Sachin Tendulakar or a Wasim Akram, for a true cricket lover like me it was sickening to see cricket being played like this to make some quick bucks. See one over bowled by Kerala Strikers captain and Malayalam actor Mohanlal. For each ball he bowling he is being cheered by a crowd of 70,000.
 When a Superstar makes a complete mockery of cricket, there are thousands to cheer him. If one can cheer for Mohanlal I feel we should be cheering for artist like Santhosh Pandit also. He is just doing the same thing in movies. Celebrity Cricket League is making a mockery of cricket and thousands are cheering for it. Why can’t people like Santhosh Pandit who is making mockery of mainstream cinema be also cheered? His movies and songs have better quality than the games played in CCL. See his latest song from his upcoming movie “Superstar Santhosh Pandit”
You decide!!!

"Here are 22 people, most of them who can hardly run playing cricket...."
don't have a myopic opinion about the league. For every Mohanlal who can't play there is a Rajeev Pillai and Manikuttan who took that stunning catch for KS against Mumbai. I’m not sure whether you have watched some of the gud moments of the matches. You will be surprised to see that there are players who can actually swing the ball and play an elegant cover drive.
"And for watching CCL after following cricket greats.." How stupid am I to stay how disgusting is to read the many online blogs after reading the great books by MTV or O V Vijayan or even articles by Arundhati Roy. Each has its own place and should be approached and appreciated with different sensibilities.
As a person who sat thru the Test match coverage in England & Australia I have to admit that it was much more refreshing and entertaining to watch the Kerala Mumbai match than the sight of Indian greats poking at the bouncers and tortured by the quickies.
Rather than players who can hardly run as you said, I was surprised by the skill of many players and their stamina to field 20 overs.
The crowds were cheering Mohanlal not for the skill shown by him but for the sheer entertaintment value of that sight.
And for Santosh Pandit, I do feel that he shud be considered for selection !!
