twenty20– plenty plenty.

12 Sep

The inaugural match was truly exciting.

It was great fun from the start.

I sat through the entire WI innings-though it was a working day today.Hats off to C. Gayle.There was never a dull moment.Paisa Vasool!!He richly deserved the Man of the match award. He  made the match memorable. I will remember this effort for the remaining years of my life .He is going to be praised by the laymen ,armchair – critics , aficionados …

But very few will praise the cheerleaders who were gyrating throughout the match.They didn’t have a break at all.I wonder if they used Mirakul oil /painkillers at the end of the match.

    @prashanth and AB: The last sentence says:very few people will…
    I was putting across my irritation at the CL very mildly.
    I felt they were totally unnecessary..
    I will not ,Anand.Relax.
    That type of dancing is also a skill.It is not easy.
    There are people who appreciate it.

    Like it or not, cheerleaders are gonna stay. Skin sells, period.

    As for twenty20, I guess it should really be renamed as “Bowler’s nightmare”…I am not sure it’s gonna click like ne-dayers did…at least not with me 🙂

    @ DS:i too feel that the dice is loaded against the bowlers.

    T-20s are meant to crucify the bowlers.

    Aggression is required, and it gets exciting at times too, but some spice is still missing somewhere 😉

    Am I asking too much?

    Had one of the teams these four batsmen : Jayasurya, Chris Gayle, Herschelle Gibbs and Adam Gilchrist…..

    Just cant imagine the plight of the bowler and the fielding team captain…. isnt it? Thank God! They are born in different countries!
