So who’s gonna lift it? After 8 hours, i may be able to give reasons for my prediction but after 10 hours i can tell u the FACT. Anything before that is either what i want or who in my opinion would win thw IPL TROPHY.
I want CSK to win. In my opinion too, CSK is likely to be the winner.
Nobody can regulate my LIKING, but if i tell that CSK is likely to win, i have to back it up with reasons.
THE QUESTION IS SIMPLE:
IF CSK BATS SECOND CAN CSK SCORE IN 16 OVERS WHAT BENGAL (KKR) SCORES IN 20 OVERS? The answer is a resounding YES. But what is this 16 overs about? Elementary Mr. Watson: Mr Naraine would bowl 4 overs and CSK batsmen are not likely to take chances, CSK would merely want to see NARAINE off with his overs. My prediction is that Naraine is likely to bowl the 2nd, 11th , 18th and 20th overs of the match. That is if KKR bowls first, if it were to bowl second, Naraine would have exhausted his overs by 16th over, as Gautam Gambhir is likely to use him to break CSK’s scoring speed or partnerships and thereby exhausting Naraine’s overs before the last quarter.
If CSK bats first, the only person who could finish off Naraine would be BRAVO. He has no respect for BALLS, as he himself has TOO MUCH OF IT TO CARE FOR IT IN OTHERS.
Even though the battle seems to be between CHENNAI and KOLKATA, the underlying fact is that it is a battle between DELHIITES (Gautam Ghambir and Shah Rukh Khan) on the side of KKR and a BIHARI (Jharkhand was formerly of Bihar) and a TAMBRAM (Srinivasan) on the other side. Despite these deep rooted affiliations, at the BRAND level, CHENNAI is supported by the Tamils.
You may wonder why i bring in these distinctions: But last night when i spoke to my Delhi friend he enlightened me : SEE JUST BECAUSE CSK AND KKR ARE INVOLVED IN THE TITLE CLASH, WE CANNOT BE NEUTRAL. AFTER ALL WE ARE FROM DELHI & WE HAVE TO DECIDE FURTHER COURSE OF ACTION- FIRSTLY WE DON’T LIKE YOU CHENNAIITES BECAUSE YOU DO NOT ACCEPT HINDI AS THE NATIONAL LANGUAGE. SECONDLY, YOU BEAT US TO BE THERE, WHICH MEANS OUR ENEMY’S ENEMY IS OUR FRIEND. THIRDLY, CALCUTTA HAD ACCEPTED DELHI AS THE CAPITAL AND CONCEDED IN1912, BUT CHENNAI IS SHOWING RESISTANCE, SO I AM SORRY WE CANNOT SUPPORT CHENNAI. My friend spoke for the whole of Delhi as if R K Puram & Mayur Vihar were not a part of Delhi!
I saw animosity in the line of reasoning, and while i was still mulling over his statements, he added NOW YOU KEEP A PUPPET BIHARI TO PUSH YOUR TAMIZHAN AGENDA. SEE, THE SO FAR DORMANT MURALI VIJAY HAS STARTED SCORING AND BADRINATH, ANOTHER THAMIZHAN SCORED IN THE PRE SEMI ELIMINATOR- WHAT DRAMA IS THIS? YOU SHOW THE 50 OF DHONI, BUT WHEN DHONI IS ASKED HE SAYS THAT IT WAS BADRINATH’S 47 OR 49 WHICH SET UP THE PLATFORM. SO I SEE THE TAMIZHAN CONSPIRACY AND ME AS A DELHIITE, AM SENSITIVE TO THESE UINDERCURRENTS.BOTH THE BIHARIS AND MADRASIS ARE PLAYING HUMBLER THAN THOU………..WHICH IS AGAINST DELHI’S SOCIALISTIC PRINCIPLES. THE WHOLE COUNTRY SHOULD GROW IRRESPECTIVE OF WHETHER OTHER STATES WORK OR NOT! iT IS THE DUTY OF DELHI TO CORRECT THOSE EMERGING IMBALANCES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I SEE A BIHARI-TAMIZHAN AXIS IN THIS IPL, TO RETAIN CHENNAI AS THE VENUE FOR THE NEXT IPL FINALS TOO.
SO WE IN DELHI, WANT THE RULES TO BE CHANGED SO THAT THE FINAL’S VENUE COULD BE ROTATED SOCIALISTICALLY AND WE ARE GIOING TO FLOAT THE NEW FUNDA THAT THE INDIAN CRICKET FANS ARE MATURE AND WOULD SUPPORT EVEN OUTSIDE TEAMS.
At last i had a glimpse of the deep rooted prejudices hidden within each fan under the guise of good CRICKET!
But that’s NOT CRICKET.
While we are fighting it out under the umbrella of Cricket, the SPONSORS, the PROTECTORS (read the local politicians, police……….) and the MYRIAD ORGANIZERS (BCCI, TNCA, ICC..) are having a nice symbiotic relationship. Then there are those observers like me writing the WRONGS and people like KAPIL DEV who are hoping to duplicate such entertainment with the help of ZEE! CRICKET GOES ON………..in one form or the other.
In the meanwhile, Luke Pomersbach, Ms Hamid, Peerzada & Siddarth Mallya are all getting together to DRAFT a LEGISLATION ON “THE PERFECT FUTURE WIFE BILL” (Private) to be jointly moved in the Parliament by Rajya Sabha MPs REKHA and JAYA BADHURI!
Whatever it might be CSK should win!
