DLF IPL 20-20 Cricket match 2009 playing its semifinals. Last semifinal match will be played today and tomorrow will be the final. Unlike 2008 IPL this time almost all the matches were interesting and thrilling. Though they played the match in South Africa there is no loss in entertainment for us. Sony Entertainment took the responsibility to bringing the matches with all its beauty.
Sky scratching sixes, fast & furious fours, wild wickets, honorable hatricks, fish fly fielding, boundless blasting bowling, smashing shots, curious catches, mind boggling last minutes, fantastic fifties, huge hundreds, lucrative last overs,wonderful winning moments,perpetual partnerships,chicks as cheer leaders with all these things IPL made me enjoy my time all these days and hope for everyone watching cricket.
Entertainment Served Cold - 8 scoups/teams
Though both my favorite teams are out of semifinal (KKR and MI) I’m happy to see RCB in form in semifinals and deserving DC in finals. Hope today’s match should be in in favor of CSK. Though both the teams are competing and equal I wish the victory should go for DC. Hope it will be a excellent match/treat tomorrow and the end of the IPL 2009.
Thanks for all the astounding moments and for the gr8 entertainment all these days.Thanks for the IPL organizers and all the players for their best display of team spirits. One thing I can say about this IPL 2009 season,
“Suspense served HOT
Entertainment served COLD.”
Happy watching …!
Dada in problem again. John Buchanan, the coach for Kolkata Knight Riders has dropped Sourav Ganguly as a fixed captain for IPL 2020. Buchanan who feels Ganguly does not fall in the T20 scheme of things and he doubt his fitness for T20 format games. He says several reasons for this decision and opting for unique concept – no fixed captain. Whatever may be the decision ..finally Ganguly is targeted and put in trouble.
No need to Prove again...!
No one knows what is exactly behind this decision. Hope dada has proved himself a good captain in the last years IPL and his batting strike rates are good. And moreover IPL is more into business and not into sports. The unique aim of the format is to getting revenue. The game plan and format were designed according that. It’s not country oriented…its totally into business. Sourav has proved himself by bring more revenues in the Sharukh khan owned KKR in 2008 IPL. Hope Buchanan tries to wear the mask of Greg chappel/kiran moore/vensargar. As a most successful, aggressive captain and player of world cricked, I don’t know what else he have to do to prove himself as a best captain/player. He is out of international cricket…but still he is targeted.
Anyways …despite of all the problems I/we wish to see some demolishing strikes from dada this season. And no need to prove himself again….we know you…!
