Did Martyn spill the beans?

Damien Martyn is an ICL player now.

According to the Daily Telegraph in Australia:

Martyn revealed yesterday that an opportunity to play alongside Lara and Tendulkar was too good to pass up.

"Imagine walking out to bat alongside either of those guys,'' he said.

"It's a chance just too good to miss. It's a chance also to play in a team captained by Warnie.''
Tendulkar and ICL?

ICC has all reasons to get worried now.

Economic Times reports,

On the advertising front, ICL has hit the market and is in talks with clients to sign on the four main sponsors. ICL has priced the sponsor package at between Rs 4-5 crore.

On an average, international cricket matches featuring India cost between Rs 1-2 lakh for a 10-second commercial spot, depending on the channel and the team India plays. The breakaway league is, however, being marketed at three-fourth the cost, making it a very attractive proposition to advertisers. Advertisers currently in talks with ICL include HLL, Videocon, LG, Hutch, Reliance, Coke and Pepsi.

If Pepsi are in talks with ICL, they would definitely want Tendulkar to be a part of it.; such is the relationship between the two.
