IPL A-Z

IPL A-Z

We bring you everythign you need to know about the IPL

AA-   Aussies also Absentees: Were scheduled to join in the later part of the tournament, but some like Ricky Ponting decided to ditch their plans.

B

B-    Bangalore Royal Challengers a.k.a. Bevdaas: They may have played like drunkards last time around but not this time. Whenever they won, the media called it an upset. They have upset the media all right.

C

C-    Chennai Super Kings: Not as consistent as last time but when Hayden fires, who cares? Lost out in the semifinals. Better luck next time is all I can say.

DD-   Deccan Chargers: Bottom team last time around, have done so well this time. A change in color seems to have worded for them, with the team doing ever so well. Got a new promo song too that is kinda addictive.

E

E-  England: Flintoff and KP came withhuge expectations, but were surely weighed down by them. Ravi Bopara and Dmitris Mascherenas however proved to be more than their money’s worth.

FF-  Fakeiplplayer: The anonymous blogger’s revelations have caused quite a stir in the IPL, with Aakash Chopra and Sanjay Bangar rumoured to be sacked due to it.

G-    Gilly: Led from the front as Deccan Chargers captain, taking the last placed team of last years IPL all the way to the finals with a blinder against Delhi in the Semis.

HH-   Hayden: Rose above others by the sheer weight of runs. Very consistent and without him, Chennai would have been in the doldrums.

I

I- Implementation: This season saw amazing shots being played, something you would have not even imagined otherwise. Still remember Sachin’s reverse paddle sweep enroute to that huge victory against Kolkata.

JJ- Jumbo: Took over the reins of a struggling unit and transformed them to a group of world beaters. Bowled brilliantly, constricting opponents and getting crucial breakthroughs.

K

K-   Kamran Khan: K is for controversies. Bowled brilliantly, got into trouble due to a suspect action, and missed out much for the latter part of the tournament due to an injury.

LL-    Lasith Malinga: was brilliant in the death overs. Always bowled in the block hole and got a lot of wickets too. Saving grace for Mumbai Indians.

MM-  Mandira Bedi: One word describes her according to me: DUMB. She kept up with her standards this time. Got a weird hairdo too.

NN- Ashish Nehra: Brought back memories of the 2003 World Cup. Bowled a good line and length and got a lot of wickets too. Would like to see him selected for the Indian T20 squad.

O2O1O-   Ojha brothers: Pragyan did better than the last year. Naman played a few blinders at the top and kept wickets well too.

PP-    Manish Pandey: Made his mark on the Bangalore team in the end. This 19 year old, who was with Mumbai Indians the year before became the first Indian to score a century in the IPL. Aggressive, beautiful batting showcased by him.

QQ-   Quickies: Went for runs but ended up getting a few wickets too. Not as effective as they were on Indian wickets.

RR-    R.P.Singh: Started the tournament looking for a berth on the Indian T20 squad, and ended up top wicket taker. Brilliant bowling by him.

SS-    Shilpa Shetty: More commonly known as Big Sister. Got her boyfriend to buy Rajasthan Royals, the defending champions, danced in promos, but saw her team not even making it to the semifinals. Added to the glamour quotient of the IPL.

TT-    Ross Taylor: Started slowly but has become an integral part of the Bangalore team. Played the slog sweep to perfection, often targeting spinners, and taking Bangalore to many memorable wins. His 81 not out off just 33 balls may well be the inning of the tournament. Sharp in the field too.

UU-    U. Yes you. 400 crores were generated through TV revenues, and that came out of your pockets. You have made IPL the money spinner it is.

VV-    Vijay Mallya: Defended his “test” team during dire times, and is surely laughing now. Threw a lot of parties for the Bangalore team too. Not to mention discounted rates for air travel for the ipl contingent through his airlines, Fly Kingfisher.

WW-  Wanderers: Played host for the finals. Wonderful closing ceremony to call the tournament off.

XX-   eXtra Innings: TV presenting has reached a low, after India TV’s horrible coverage of the Mumbai terror attacks. Sometimes you think how dumb they can get, but they always do better the next time. If not for this, the number of people watching will double. Dunno what Salman Khan is doing on the sets.

YY-   Yuvraj: Didn’t impress with the bat, though chipped in with useful knocks at times. Was brilliant with the ball though, taking not one but two hattricks. Keeps you wondering as to where all the bowlers went.

ZZ-    Zoozoos: During times of recession, whom will you cast for your ads? Katrina? Shilpa? No way!! These Zoozoos look really cute and by coming up with so many ads, they have become a rage. Most people don’t know that what the Zoozoos speak is some Mallu gibberish. The ad producer happens to be a Mallu.

P.S. We would also like to thank DLF, Fly Kingfisher, Hero Honda, Citi and Vodafone for their support.

Breaking News: Our sources at CNN IBN tell us that Shilpa has decided to forgive SRK and marry him. We have exclusive video footage. Click here to watch
