IPL: I love you no more

The sixers and the fours have kept the audiences on the edge of their seats. The people are mesmerized by the shiny bright red uniforms and the blue passionate people with their instant reactions to countless flips of the bat. My personal favourite is always Rajhastan Royals but I can’t help but get excited about KKR aka Kolkata Knight Riders.

THE Players!

THE Players!

If we look back in the history of the first Indian Premiere League which was graced by our Pakistani players be it Sohail Tanvir or Shoaib Akhtar. They marked their place with their Punjabi slash fast bowlers and 6 out of 6 yorkers. If Shipla Shetty was reading this, she must be clear that the team RR is a great blessing for her. Shane Warne did his magic and left the world in awe of his brilliance. The way he spins the ball; leaving the batsman in a predicament of keeping their balance to decide their shot. Even Shane Watson has kept his cool during all the IPLs we have seen as yet.

It’s a second versus tick tock game and I love every minute of it AND here I raise the question of deciding if emotion and love will make the IPL work better than the previous IPLs. I would specifically like to talk about Virat Kohli over here.

VK has, I would say put his heart as he captains the RCB team. If you watch his closely, he kept his anger in control giving full support to Yuvraj Singh wherever possible. Virat has shown patience and determination which leads to the question to all those link ups we hear regarding all the players in IPL. One can only guess and ramble about the fact the why did Raina’s nephew tweet about Pakistan. Oh well, I will leave it to that. One just needs to “relax, because nothing is in control”.
