Tweets and RTs from a frustrated team owner. A combination of his team losing by a single run, forced and prolonged separation from his wife, and the fact that his is one of only two teams that don’t have the option of picking up the phone and lodging a with the powers that be, all cumulatively adding up to an emotional outpouring on twitter. After all, there’s only so much a man can take, even one who is basically known as a trophy husband.
In this tournament, he must feel a bit like Sreesanth. Unwanted, unloved, derided, humiliated, and ignored, but still trying to make his presence felt at the party.
Talking about unwanted owners, guess who the most wanted team owner is in this tournament. It’s none other than the bad boy from badshahland. So wanted is he that he actually wants Rs 2 crores from other franchises if they want him to attend his team’s away matches at their venues. It’s a huge step up for the man who makes the same amount of money dancing at weddings.
He thinks his attendance translates into Rs 5 crore of extra ticket sales for the home team. And he’s known to not let go of his pound of flesh.
So, let’s not get swayed by all the waves and kisses. It’s not just love that makes him tail his team.
Talking about love, guess who is fast losing everybody’s love this season. It’s none other than a world-class spinner, though yarn is the only spinning he’s been doing lately.
A group within the MCBCI, rivals of the Chennai power centre, had a brilliant scheme up their sleeves. The Indian team’s performance had plummeted, the captain was losing face and faith, and their man had deserted ship before it sank. And, he announced himself as a successful captain in a club tournament. Everything seemed set for them to hype up their decibel levels calling for him to be the next India captain.
Unfortunately, and not quite unexpectedly, his bowling has become inversely proportional to the hyperbole surrounding him.
While his backers continue to make a fool of themselves on TV hailing his leadership skills, the guy toils on, day after day, his behavior being just about the only thing worse than his bowling.
