IPL has reduced nastiness in Cricket

Sunil Gavaskar believes that the Indian Premier League (IPL), by bringing world's leading cricketers and thus helping them understand each other better, has reduced nastiness in cricket.
 
According to a PTI report Gavaskar told reporters at a book launch:
"During our times, there used to be intense rivalry as every player used to play to win. But the IPL has brought players from different countries together creating a good rapport among them."
While the IPL is too new a tournament to base such observations on, the relatively rancour free current 7 match one-day International's between India and Australia makes one believe there is some truth in it.
