Also, check this, cheergirls are having trouble: Cheerleaders harassed in leer country- Hindustan Times
Quote:
“It’s been horrendous,” a cheerleader told HT, echoing the point of many when saying the kind of comments they have “had to endure over the last week from the Indian public” had left them “disgusted and disturbed”.
Quote:
“Wherever we go, we do expect people to pass lewd, snide remarks but I’m shocked by the nature and magnitude of the comments people pass here… Be it a 70-year-old oldie or a 15-year-old kid
Quote:
During the Mohali vs Jaipur game in Jaipur, a group of 15 people right behind the cheerleaders didn't know where to look. And this is what one man said, amidst all the catcalling, hooting and pointed Hindi obscenities: “There is Preity Zinta watching, hot goris dancing, and Yuvraj Singh batting, what more do we need?

Seems like it. I like the way the Royals are fighting. They don't seem to give up,even when things begin to look a bit bleak.

I just hope the Mumbai Indians get their selection right tomorrow. Making Rahane sit out of the team and playing with Dhaval Kulkarni and Khote

I mean when you actually think about it - where did the Mumbai team think tank actually spend the money ? Jayaysurya , Polock, Gayle is fine. (even though Sanath and Pollock have their best days behind them) but Ashwell Prince ? Boosman (atleast I dont know him yet) ? And they couldn't even keep Rohit Sharma with them ?? Not even Agarkar ??

Simply amazing.

And this morning I wake to news that the Maharashtra Govt has banned cheer leaders from matches in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai.

Moral policing is back with a vengeance. Why does the government treat the people like small children ? So Mumbai folks, you cannot handle the cheer leaders without getting worked up while watching them perform but the people from other cities can handle
it.

Great !

I guess its a case of the politicos not having much to discuss in the Mantralaya these days! So rake up a controversy and pose as the guardians of the people of the country. Crap!!!

By the way, Mumbai Indians have very conservatively dressed cheerleaders. Its Bangy, Hyd and Rajasthan Royals who have imports doing the cheerleading job for them.

wow!!What a match between DC and RR!
Symond had big smile when he started his last over and it was fun to see his face after Warne had hit him for winning 6er.

Laxman will have to treat it as Davis cup and play as non-paying captain.You could feel his tension when he came to Bishop for post match comments.

Like DC another underachiever team is my favourite King's.I will be cheering for them today for their 1st win.

From what we've seen so far in the IPL, its clear than Bhajji, Laxman and Yuvraj and not exactly captaincy material. Dravid too in this form of the game, atleast!

Look at how Shane Warne, Dhoni and even Sehwag have run their respective teams. Not to forget good old "Dada". Its early days but I think Chennai, Mohali and Kolkatta will fight for top honours eventually.

Whatte match y'day, when RR needed 17 runs off last over, I was about to off the TV since it was impossible for RR to make it with their bowlers at crease, but thot what the heck, just one over, and boy Warnie got a turbo boost & blasted Symonds off the ground!

Moral: Get a Aussie to neutralize a Aussie!

And it seems Sachin is not giong to play again today according to a report in the papers. Is he actually going to play one match atleast or his he there just for namesake? Hope the Mumbai boys get something right today.

I believe sachin is not bothering much about these games as far as he gets his moolah USD a million+. Desparetly want to see him play in 20-20. Hoping some miracle happens and he will play for Mumbai today.

DC owners have 2 options:
1. Make Gilchrist the captain of Deccan Chargers
2. Rename Deccan Chargers as Deccan Dischargers
Need to see which option they will take.

If Sachin is not playing, why did Mukesh Ambani pay him million $?

How about 'They are long time friends & he felt like giving him a gift.' ?
