Here's the kicker. The "compensation" is access to a makeshift tent near the field where the suite holders can eat and drink for free. Three words which I cannot put any other way: What. The. Fuck? How is this even an issue? I am baffled by the fact that people are having disagreements about who gets to use the suites, and that apparently this matter is "threatening to derail the series".
Van Heerden, chief executive of Free State Cricket and also a South African, came out with a quote which would almost be funny if it weren't for the completely ridiculous circumstances which have led to him commenting on this:
“I received correspondence from the IPL about the issue. My suite holders are not happy."
The suite holders have until later today to settle (for free food?) or I suppose the IPL will take other action to remove them. Like making an even bigger fuss about it.
