Ready for showdown

May 29, 2008

Dravid – OUT, Sachin – OUT, Ganguly – OUT, Laxman – OUT. The grand old men of Indian Cricket will not play any more part in this years IPL. A combined take home salary of 12+ crores and nothing to show for it…. thank God it wasn’t our money 😉

Whether they will return is anyones guess. Expect some major changes in the off-season.

So its Delhi vs Rajasthan and Chennai vs Punjab. We shall see. I am keeping my fingers crossed for the Rajasthan team since I own part of the team.



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.
