New Delhi: Former India cricketer Navjot Singh Sidhu on Tuesday, waxed eloquence on the Indian Premier League, using superlatives like "solid entertainment" and "shining sun of world cricket" to describe the cash-rich tournament.
"Indian Premier League is the best thing to have ever happened to cricket. Twenty20 cricket is like cricket in a Ferrari lane...it's fast and furious. People first started listening to classical music, then to pop music and then moved on to rock...IPL is like rock music. It's rocking the nation," said Sidhu.
"IPL is a different product, it's a changing time. IPL is like the shining sun of world cricket. IPL is like buying a burger from the market when no one is willing to cook at home. It's a refreshing change brought to the cricket and solid entertainment," said Sidhu, who was at his wittiest best during the launch of SET Max's IPL show 'Extraaa Innings T20' in the capital.
