All the cricketers of the world would be eligible to participate in this new league provided they fulfill one simple condition.They must have the honor of being banned by their cricket board for an offense which brought the game into disrepute.

The annual contracts for the ICL will be handed out based on the offense committed by a particular cricketer.Cricketers banned for serious breaches like match fixing, spot fixing, ball tampering will get the most $$ while those banned for minor transgressions like questioning an umpire’s decision, excessive appealing will get lesser $ value contracts.

Other players keen to make it into an ICL franchise will have to provide some kind of proof that they cheated during a match.

Each ICL team will have an official fixer.This would be a retired cricketer with a proven track record of cheating at an international level.Past players like Herschelle Gibbs, Chris Cairns, Salim Malik, Mohammad Azharuddin, Manoj Prabhakar, Shane Warne, Mark Waugh have thrown in their hats for this coveted position.The main responsibility of a team’s designated fixer would be to liaise with their team’s players and the bookies spread across the world.

ICL will be an annual tournament promoted by Russian Olympic Federation who have years of extensive experience in the science of international cheating in various sporting disciplines.The matches will be held at the Sharjah cricket stadium, as it has all the facilities, a robust infrastructure and proven track record in various forms of cheating.

Volkswagen will be chief sponsors ICL.Commenting on their association with ICL, a VW spokesperson said,” As part of our corporate legacy, we at Volkswagen are always looking to associate with anything that encourages and rewards the art of cheating and it is our belief that ICL will be a good fit for VW.”

The Modi Hugs…10 fun facts

The Modi Hugs…10 fun facts
1.  Till date, Modi has successfully hugged over 40+ world leaders as India’s Prime Minister with some like Donald Trump and Ex President Barack Obama and Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi, Mohammad bin Zayed Al Nahyan being the beneficiary of a Modi hug on multiple occasions. NaMo hit the jackpot of hugging in January 2018,when 10 ASEAN leaders came to India to attend India’s 69th Republic Day celebrations. Modi hugged them all except Myanmar’s leader Aung San Suu Kyi.
2. Like Munna Bhai, Modi Bhai also believes that a Jadu ki jhappi make this world a better place.Hence it does not matter to him if his opposite number’s culture encourages hugging or not.Modi went straight for a tight hug while meeting Japanese Prime Minster Shinzo Abe and also President of Mexico Enrique Pena Nieto for the first time.
3. So far NaMo has restricted his hugging to world leaders only. He is yet to hug his political opponents like Rahul Gandhi, Arvind Kejriwal and definitely not Ms Renuka Chowdhry.Both Congress party and AAP call it a conspiracy to undermine the unity and integrity of India.
4. Famed music director A R Rahman is all set to record a  Modi version of the famous motivational song, Hum Honge Kaamyaab(We shall overcome). The Modi version will be called Hug Honge Kaamyaab( Hug shall overcome).All movie theatres in India will be obligated to play this before the beginning of a movie and patrons would be encouraged to hug each other.
5. After declaring June 21 as International Yoga Day, United Nations is all set to make June 22 as an International Day of the Hug It will be formally called World MoHug Day, in honour of the man who took a Hug to huge heights.
6. It is speculated that a single MoHug has the power to bring in minimum $ 1 billion worth of investment into India, the real secret behind India’s spectacular economic growth since 2014.
7. Although no official time record is available, it is said that the 45-second hug between Modi and Trump holds the record for the longest MoHug.Melania was not impressed though.
8. At the current average, it is not far-fetched to say that by the time he completes his second term in 2024, at least  500 MoHugs would have been imparted to various world leaders on multiple occasions and at multiple locations across the world.
9. A MoHug range of natural products and merchandise is under development by Baba Ramdev’s Patanjali. A request by Huggies to sign up Modi ji as their global brand ambassador was  firmly rejected.
