The Royal Challenge

May 12, 2008

First he fires his CEO. Now hes shooting his mouth off in public about how he left the team selction to Dravid and the CEO …blah blah blah blah etc etc.. I wish he would keep quiet… ONLY BCCI IS ALLOWED TO DO THAT !!!! (shoot our mouths of that is)

I mean the Deccan (Dis)Chargers are screwed up as well.. you dont see their owners complaining in public.

I just hope Vijay Mallya doesn’t ask for his money back. Anyway there was a “No Refund” clause in the franchisee agreement. Whew !!


Heres a little inside story.

Except for Dhoni all ICON players have failed miserably especially the Fab 4. Dravid cant hit the ball if it was the size of a watermelon, Ganguly.. well we all know that the only reason hes on the team is because SRK wants to use him for publicity. Plus there would be riots in Kolkatta. Laxman.. well he scored in one match but for most part he looks lost. Tendulkar…. well hes hurt…

The Franchisees have been calling BCCI if they can use these Icon players for something else.. they need the publicity…. several ideas were thrown around… finally the suggestion that these people be made non-playing captains made sense. The only other intersting part is a question whether all of them can be used to help the cheerleading squad. The way Dravid is waving his bat around it looks like hes waving pom poms anyway.

Heres a great review on the season so far by Greatbong.
