I was saying the talent levels of BBL teams are relatively equal, therefore we get competitive games. And that's ultimately what's important from an audience perspective. T20 is hit and giggle, so seeing international quality compete against international quality in the IPL isn't inherently more entertaining than watching State level play against State level.
Not sure where this idea the BBL goes on too long comes from, the IPL plays 14 games each and goes for two months, so 10 games and six weeks seems perfectly fine. All we need is a bit more international talent for the duration of the tournament, but that may simply be too difficult when India won't release players and NZ, SA have their summer of cricket, and the crowded schedule of other international teams.
Mind you, I wonder why SA gets more talent, surely they don't have more money than CA.
Not sure about that. Do you prefer watching the premier league or the A-league? The standard absolutely matters, BBL has club cricketers playing in it. It used to be a fairly high standard but not anymore.
