And thank fuck for that. 59 games, come now, that’s too much!
Rajasthan Royals won the inaugural IPL tournament. Which I think most people expected to happen, as soon as the topped the league format.
See they were a bit streetsmart about the whole she-bang. They are run by the company that also manages Leicester, the most successful 20-20 in England. They bought a shrewd, super tactician in Warney, and then built a team around individual roles. They did it on the cheap, and everyone laughed at them. I wonder how Shah Rukh Khan is feeling now?
Deserved winners, and it was a cracking final to be honest. CSK played a decent part themselves, but Dhoni fucked up big time, at two important junctures. Firstly he sent in Kapugedera after Raina, which went wrong, horribly. He’s been in a poor run of form and lost the CSK momentum. And Secondly, he gave the last over to Balaji, who had bowled shit all night. Oops.
Also, Fleming in a dress? What the bejaasus was that all about?
In other news, Stuart McGill has done a Damien Martyn. I wonder if he’ll disappear of the face of the earth, like Marto did?
To be fair to Stuey, it takes balls to admit that you’re past it half way through a test match, but he’s been bowling absolutely shockingly of late. Longhops, wides, full tosses. It’s been like watching a spinning version of Jimmy Anderson!
Good luck with the wine and TV show Stuey, you were too good for those louts. Anyone who reads 12 books on a tour to Pakistan, is all good.
Bring back Nice Bryce I say!
And Park, I’m sorry I haven’t created your Made up picture of pure delight yet, but I promise it’ll be here today!
