Shaant Ishant, ShaantReactions to the Indian Premier League have ranged from the moral to the material. There's one thing I don't like: that Ishant Sharma was one of the highest 'bought' players. Nice for the lad and all, but if he really is the brightest bowling prospect (in a decade full of bright bowling prospects) around, is it really smart to let him be subject to further pressures? I can't see his franchise asking him to take it easy if they have paid so much for him. Bowling prospects for India have a habit of disappearing and not being well looked after, and I wish the BCCI would pay him a crore and ask him to sit at home in April.
