American Premier League- A cricket revolution in America?

It appears that American Sports and Entertainment;Group (ASEG) is capitalising on the huge interest evoked by IPL in the US by planning to run a tournament called APL (American Premier League).

The inaugural series of the APL ,which will take place twice a year, will be played out in New York from October 6 to 26 and the next one in April 2010 in Fort Lauderdale,Florida.

Though it is purportedly modeled on IPL, it has also taken a leaf out of ICL and given national names to its teams. For instance, there is a Premium World Team, Premium India, Premium Bangladesh, Premium Pakistan,Premium Windies and a home team called Premium America.


There are news reports that Nicky Boje, Andrew Hall and Lance Klusener have been offered lucrative contracts to play for the Premium World team.
