RR & KKR were the 2 teams I really rooted for in the first season!! One of which even went upto becoming the Champions!! 😀 Incidentally, Kolkata also happens to be my birth place, & Rajasthan my home-town state!! 😛
Only 2 days gone, & with the kind of results we’ve had, I’ve been losing whatever little interest & enthusiasm I had, since the 2nd season of IPL went abroad. Both my favourite teams got badly beaten by the 2 worst-performing sides of the 1st season – Royal Challengers Bangalore & Deccan Chargers.
On the other side of IPL, Delhi Daredevils have had an exceptional 10 wicket victory over Kings XI Punjab. An excellent spell by Bangalore’s Anil Kumble who took 5 wickets in 3.1 overs and giving away just 5 runs against RR!!! Another good bowling by Fidel Edwards of West Indies playing for the Deccan Chargers.
If you are wondering what I’m upto, this is my own way of writing a Match-Summary, written disheartenedly!!
It was actually very disheartening to see both my fav teams being beaten this badly. Here is a brief synopsis of what worked for whom!!
Things that didn’t work for both Rajasthan Royals & Kolkata Knight Riders:-
KKR – The new captain(s)..
RR – The same old captain.. 😐
KKR – Their slump since the last season.
RR – Their winning streak from the last season. 😐
KKR – Shahrukh’s relocated bones!!
RR – Shilpa Shetty relocated!! 😐
Things that worked for Bangalore Royal Challengers & Deccan Chargers:-
1. New ‘overseas’ captians
» Kevin Pietersen – Bangalore
» Adam Gilchrist – Deccan Chargers
2. New Team jerseys.
3. Finally, Rajasthan Royals & Kolkata Knight Riders themselves!!! 😐 😐 😐
Waise toh, its just been the first matches for both my teams, & we have lots of hope left in the tournament. But the very beginning itself was disappointing enough. The forthcoming matches really need to go well to lift up the drooping spirits of all, including the players in SA.
As for here, we just missed a Bengal Bandh on account of removing Sourav Ganguly from the captaincy! 😐
Anyways, now its me signing off. Wishing RR & KKR a better performance and a better post to myself!!!
