India's own domestic Twenty20

Twenty20 has started of in the Indian domestic scene. It is the first of its kind in India and given that some of the big guns of the Indian team are participating, I did do the mistake of expecting some big hype and interest surrounding it. But no one is talking about it. Many are not even aware of its happening. Maybe cricket has got a punch in the jaw with the Indian team's horrible show in the World Cup. But then the Twenty20 World Cup is fast approaching and maybe that is the reason the BCCI has introduced it this domestic season. Please prepare, my men! We don't want another first round exit....
And interestingly, already football seems to be trying to attracting eyeballs here with the FIFA president's visit to India. An event which is surely recieving more attention than necessary in the media thanks to the 'men in blue' and Bangladesh.
