Which one is the best, IPL or ICL

The second ICL tournament will be held on 10 March 2008. So, what is important thing in ICL than IPL in the second tournament? In the inaugural ceremony IPL is facing so many problems to recruit the players. It seems that this ICL will be more acceptable that the inaugural ceremony. I think you will ask me why?

The Indian Cricket League (ICL) is the only tournament of its kind that can keep alive the "great India-Pakistan rivalry". That's the view of the ICL's business head, Himanshu Mody, who was explaining its positioning vis-à-vis the ICC-backed Indian Premier League (IPL), which has a much higher profile and is operating on a larger scale.

The launch of the Lahore Badshahs team, which will participate in the tournament that begins on Sunday, will "add a whole new dimension to the league," Mody told Cricinfo. The side features 15 Pakistanis, including Inzamam-ul Haq, Mohammad Sami and Saqlain Mushtaq, and is coached by the former wicketkeeper, Moin Khan.

So it is clear that ICL is getting a team named Lahore Badshahs where all the members are form Pakistan. And, if any team comes on with all Indian players then it will be similar attraction like India vs Pakistan match.
