3 days in and the IPL is as boring as what you do in the ad break.
None of the 5 games have even come close to being a thriller.
The commentary is so over the top and predictable – there is only so many DLF maximums and Citi moments of success that you can put up with.
Does Ravi Shashthri really have to yell into his mic every time the toss is on?
And who picked the colors for the highest run scorer and wicket taker caps?
More importantly what happens when a player, lets say Hayden, looses his cap to, lets say Dravid, in an ongoing match. Does he hand it over to him mid game?
What if the highest run scorer and wicket taker are the same person, does he wear his 2 caps ? Maybe like Sherlock homes with that deer hunter type thingys?
Why are all the high profile batsmen getting out to first ballers ? I’m not complaining but Jesse Ryder, KP and Ross Taylor -‘One of the best batsmen in this form of the game, he is so dangerous’- according to Danny Morrison. 1 run in 2 games is deadly alright. For his team.
The best Citi moment of success so far as to be the look on KPs face after Murali cleaned him up. Giving whole new meaning to adding another ‘0’ to the his figures.
Spinners making a comeback? Ah-huh. Kumble, Warne, Murali, Vetorri, Harbajan have been brilliant in this IPL. Murali’s spell last night was way cool. The ball to Uttapah orgasmic.
Other than that the games lack the oomph of last year. No crazy 100s or finishes that make you wet your couch. Yet.
