Is APL is Going to be Empty Vessel that Sounds a Lot?

You know that last month, there was a lot of buzz in the media about American Premier League (APL). An American sports company is going to arrange it and they have already stated that six teams are going to play in it. There will be teams on the name of countries like Bangladesh, India, Pakistan and West Indies. The organizers are hoping that there are a lot of people from South Asia and West Indies in USA. So, there is a market already exists for watching cricket on television and in the stadium. They have already promised that some big international cricketers are going to play.

 However, until now, we have not heard the name of any big player except perhaps Inzamam-ul-Haq. Richard Hadlee has also joined this venture. APL owner recently said that there had been a lot of offer for sponsorship from different companies because APL will attract many people of South Asian origin living in USA. However, what I feel is that all the things that have been said are very vake and unclear. There have been no specific names of companies or TV channels or even sponsorship bids. We still do not know which players from India are going to play in the event. We also do not know whether any current cricket player will also play there.
