It’s about the great entertainer IPL-2 2009 started in south Africa yesterday. Its really funny to see the local Indian matches played in the international grounds ..as the IPL is started for entertaining Indian fans and to earn money from them. So the teams were split into names of states and things were organized . But now this was shifted to South Africa and the name has not changed for the tournament and the teams.
IPl should have been changed as IPL@International Premier League and the states names should have been removed . At least south African players should be given more priority to play in all the teams…but nothing happened. I don’t think this year IPL will earn more money….! When taking it as a game ..things are ok and it will be a good entertainer and it will give new dimensions to the T20 format. May be IPL will considered more important than T20 world cup in the forth coming years.
Its time for fab 4...!
Anyways… I am really happy with the first day results. Congrats for the first winning of Sachin’s and Dravid’s team. Its Dravid’s turn to prove himself that he is still good in cricket and eligible to lead a team. And also Ganguly is waiting for his turn…! Lets wait and see the performances of the costly players like (kevin peiterson, Fleming etc.,) .
Some sites on IPL -2 2009 …
Scores and match updates
Here every thing will be hot for next two months …Hot cricket, Hot elections, Hot summer (sun- chennai), Hot results – Higher secondary, hot results – Elections. Really its Hot.
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…!
Atlast DLF-IPL T20 matches got over. IPL has finished up with a nail-bitting thriller final match . Rajasthan Royals vs Chennai super kings.
Hats off to the IPL committee and the organizers. Really a great job by them. They took almost all cricket fans with them for the past two months. Such an unexpected response from the peoples..it reached every corners of India. IPL acted as a hunter and discovered few young talents from state teams. A great commercial success.
I always looked IPL teams as a individuals team (private team) it was not owned by a state or represented by a state. Hope this should not bring some enmity between states. I was upset with the Knight riders team and Mumbai Indians team getting out of semi finals. Happy with Ganguly’s notable performance (not remarkable) as a captain and player. Love to see Viru in form. Felt pity on Dravid for his Test team squad in T20 matches. Wondered at Warne’s confidence and power of young team.
I don’t want to go too much into match statistics ..just stop over here. Anyways good to have some entertainers like this. Hope this summer was good to every one and bad to the Theaters and multiplex’s. And now the producers can release the movies as per schedule 🙂 . Hope all these matches will help out our young team to perform well in forth coming series.
Congrats Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super kings. Good luck Indian Team.
