Winding Down

May 26, 2008

So we are close to the semi-finals. Lots of emotional stuff happening. SRK getting all teary eyed when asked not to go to the dug out and then sending a 10 page SMS boo hooing about it.

Preity I hear is now praying for her team’s success. I heard that it was at her command that “Mentakumaran” Sreesanth actually got a haircut.

I love the Bollywood types. So dramatic.

Vijay Mallya’s team have actually won a couple of matches. So dont hear much grumblings there.

The Royal Challenge

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 !!

Ok.. Bangalore fired Charu Sharma yesterday. Its probably the first of many…

Unfortunately hiring him in the first place was a mistake… I mean just because he anchored the program on Set Max… does it make him the Cricket Officianado?  Anyway its unfortunate.. we created jobs but the guys can’t keep them.

Wonder who the next target is….

I am glad that we at the BCCI are not accountable like this. Else a lot of us would have been out on our sorry asses a long time ago.
