One team that's playing Royally besides Mumbai Indians are Rajasthan Royals. The success of the team lies in the formula of the Spin whiz captain cum coach Sharne Warne and the Tank from Baroda- Yusuf Pathan. Lets see him live in action- For a change not for batting but doing a commercial.
It’s that time of the year Shams n Wags vie for bragging rights. With Shams backing up the Mongoose bat of Haydos and expecting him to fire all cylinders, Wags has all his loyalty towards the Mumbai Indians.
Its going to be an electrifying match at the Brabourne stadium on Thursday (25th March 2010) where the two quality teams would take on against each other.
For CSK Haydos is in good nick and stand in captain Raina blazing all guns Parthiv is no mug with the bat and ball. Although Murali and Ashwin are spinning the web, CSK are missing a quality fast bowler. Absence of their star player MS Dhoni is adding salt to the injury.
On the other hand, the Mumbai Indians are on the top of the world with the batting maestro in entirely new zone with scoring loads of runs in all formats of the game.
He is Mumbai Indian’s God- Sachin Tendulkar. He has been well supported by the new comers Aditya Tare, Ambati Rayudu ,Saurabh Tiwari. What does one have to say about Tiwari? He is a left handed Dhoni. With Zak and Bhajji leading the bowling department as seniors, the team composition looks real good.
So we are all set to see the father of all games- CSK Vs MI. and for us it’s Shams Vs Wags!
We are just a day away from what one would call it as the Father of Entertaining Cricket Tournament. All roads will lead to DY Patil Cricket Stadium on Friday the 12th as its going to accommodate thousands of cricket fans for the inaugural match on Excitement is in the air as IPL has returned to India and what better ground to start with than DY Patil. Its my (Wags) favorite ground as I have experienced the first IPL match that was allotted to this ground and I have lots of memories associated with this very ground.. I still remember Adam Gilchrist and Rahul Dravid talking about the standards of the ground.Every time I pass this ground, automatically my hand reaches out to my head and salutes the ground. The first match is between KKR and Deccan Chargers and despite the home team- Mumbai Indians is not featuring in the first Match; the interest level would not go down. I am all set to watch the Inaugural match. Shams is in a way sad that he could not join me for the match, but will be happy that atleast I am able to make it there.So Mumbai- See you there!!
