As I begin to write my first shot at glory, being a die-hard sports fanatic, thousands of things about sports overbrim my mind. We are all aware about the ongoing “India Ka Tyohaar”, “The IPL” and being an Indian, I am tempted to share my views about it.
As expected it started with the perfect blend of Glitz & Glamour (though the ceremony failed to live up to its desired standards) but some moments like Hrithik’s sexy dance moves, Virat’s expression on seeing Anushka perform (Awwww…) hobbed the headlines.
Rohit Sharma once again showed his worth as a Mumbai Indians player ( or shall I say an IPL player). CSK and KKR resumed their normal services and DD ( Oh God!! What Do They Want! ), you better be careful, if you continue this way, well, a hat-trick of wooden spoon beckons!
One thing which i would like to point out that though IPL markets itself as World’s premier T20 tournament, the lack of innovations takes a bit of sheen out of it. It somehow seems inappropriate that it does not feature bails that light up.
Apart from adding a flash of candy-shop neon to the spectacle of run-outs, stumpings and comprehensive clean-bowled’s, they also bring the possibility of controversy.
At the World Cup, their slight extra weight led to reprieves for Ed Joyce, Misbah-ul-Haq and Steven Smith when bowlers got through their defences. Imagine that happening in a crucial moment of an IPL play-off game!
The empty stands at Chennai also showed the importance of a contest between spectators like a Crowd Catch (which was a bit hit in New Zealand).
Thank you guys for going through my views. I know you will be surely back to read the further ones( obviously my opening was better than the IPL one !!!! ). Looking forward to a great IPL season and the Manchester Derby this weekend !!! GGMU !!!
