Mumbai Indians lose to Misfields

A perfect example of what too much pressure can do - good to some, bad to others. I could not believe my eyes witnessing one after other misfields by Mumbai Indians. While Nehra saved a boundary throwing himself before the ball touched the boundary line, others were giving away to the pressure. Damn we lost the match (when it appeared at lot many times that we wouldn't), but the Rajasthan Royals played simply brilliantly! 7 out of 7 wins by Rajasthan Royals is something the team would be really proud of. Good going RRs!

IPL - Mumbai Indians 145 for 7

25 runs in the last over! Incredible. I wish that the efforts of Y Takawale, who scored 24 in 8 balls, pay off. All the best Mumbai Indians!

U, me aur cricket!

There were times when all the wives and girlfriends in the world (of course, the ones who are not die-hard cricket fans) used to sacrifice some of their time-with-spouse/boyfriends for the sake of cricket. But back then, there were just a few test and one-day matches every year.

Now, with the advent of twenty20 and the recent never-ending IPL, almost half of the year is dedicated to cricket! And with that comes more hours spent by the guys with the television, beer and the tummy-enhancing accompaniments. Not that I have anything against cricket (I love this sport more than any other sport and I'm sure I can watch it all my life with my hubby dear), but then when you are still in the pre-marriage stage looking forward to spend some time with him, aaarrgh, this cricket comes like a spinner and screams, "maiden over".
