When Cricket met Entertainment!!!

IPL stands for Indian Premier League (A distant cousin of the English Premier League), if this aint funny enough. There are 8 teams participating for a mere $1.2 million. All with funny names, before i get into the thick of action - A word is to be mentioned about Indian Cricket League headed by ever rebellous Kapil Paaji and backed by Zee television. Its understood that the idea of conducting such a tournament was Zee tv's brainchild but may be they were not aware of the term "copyrights".

Anyways the team names in IPLare very funny these are a few observations i made, we have 2 kings the "Chennai Super Kings" and "Punjab Kings XI". The ICL was won by "Chennai Super Stars" a small abberration seems to be Stars changed to Kings, though they maintain "Super" as their prolonged adjective. maybe a Rajini factor bole tho apun ka SuperStar. The presence of dhoni makes them feel like kings. Kolkata KnightRiders owned by Shahrukh KKKK..khan. He cant let go the "K" factor in his life whether its Kolkata, Knightrider or Karan. Too superstitious one must say. I heard karan is taking a new movie with King Khan called "Kamse Kam Kaam Karo", all K's = simply attrocious. Punjab Kings owned by preity zinta, buy a ticket for punjab match you can see zinta jumping & hugging all over the stadium.

Deccan Chargers from a hyderabad outfit epitomes a charging bull raging with fury but led by a silent mode captain VVS, weird eh? Rajasthan Royals coached and captained by Warney are the clear underdogs and are the only team playing with lot of fun and enthusiasm. Warney as ever is phenomenal, but with a phone sex scandal and doping charges he aint royal enough if you ask me. Mumbai Indians is a formidable name but a lacklustred outfit. Sachin being the only bright spot in the team. Delhi Daredevils have roped in AkshayKumar coz he is the only daredevil you can think of in india, oops also arjun singh too (oh yeah he is a devil not a dardevil). Delhi owns the best of regional players in their teams and are one of the top contenders for the cup. Bangalore Royal Challengers, what was it? Royal Challengers better known as RC, you sure its a cricket team or a bottle of "you-know-what".

Now its our turn, these days the fanciest game is not create your own teams like we do in super selector, but to bring out the whackiest names. Rules are simple, name of your native place add it with a crazy. Here are a few names me and my friends have collected.
1.Nagercoil Nigga's
2.Palakkad Mentals
3.Madurai Machans
4.Udumalpettai Oldies
5.Jharkhand Junglees
6.Cochin Crazies
7.Polaris Punters
8.Immigrant Desis
9.Chennai Chutneys
