The vodafone ads are fantastic, even better than the Hutch ones, IMO. the little girl is very cute too.
But yes, those ads between deliveries are sick, the decibel level also seems to increase when they come out.

I simply hate the ads in between the overs. They don't even wait for the run to be completed before they start with the ads.

Also when the player was hit on the eye yesterday - at least I wanted to see and check of the player was all right but that was taken as an break for ads. sheessh.

I agree with all of you on the vodafone ads with a loud soundtrack in between the deliveries. Distracting to the core.

The coverage & presentation of ICL was far more better & professional.

One more thing, the TV anchors, they suck!
Jadeja was pathetic yesterday. Didn't do a great job at all.

But he was still better than the other models that hosted the show earlier. The entire coverage sucks

He was quite nervous . After the end of the first match of IPL. Jadeja was like
thank you for watching NDTV. . Then he was like sorry im too used to speaking on NDTV. I bet the cameraman would have felt like kicking him.

Yes, I agree. Jadeja is really stupid. He doesn't know what to say and keeps on blabbering. It is time to fire him!

Each and every one of Mumbai's celeb gang at the match was cheering for the Royal Challengers, and with good reason. Mr. Mallya sure knows how to entertain his guests.

I am not sure if IPL can sustain the initial hype it has created.

I am not sure how far the Bangalore team will go or how many matches they will win.

I am not sure if SRK can recover crores of money he has spent on his team.

But there is one guy who is a real winner - Dr. Vijay Mallya ! Look at the way he has promoted his brands - team name "Royal Challengers". His Kingfisher brand is lavishly displayed on team uniform. Even umpires are displaying Kingfisher Brand.

Whenever I think of Bangalore team, first thing comes to my mind is "Royal Challenge" that RC logo, and Kingfisher brand. But how many of us know a brand called "India Cements" which is the owner of the Chennai team. How many of us know Deccan Chronicle, a news paper owns the Hyderabad team. I know Mumbai team is owned by Mukesh Ambani, but where is "Reliance" Brand? I do not know who owns other teams.

Yesterday, I saw someone interviwing Katrina Kaif. Wow! she looked really cute wearing Mr. Mallya's Kingfisher uniform.

At the end, cheers: to you Mr. Mallya. You have done your homework very well.

Jadeja is new to the anchor role. He should stick with the commentary job. Where is Mandira Bedi..

Whether IPL or ICL its all about fooling people and making money. Everybody in IPL is making whether its players or ground men.
In the last match the Flood lights went off, IMO it was all pre-planned to create the interest of the viewer and buy some more air time for the advertisements. I am pretty sure they will be many more items like these in the next coming days.

Who can miss the various stands' names in Bangalore stadium...by the time you are done with selecting the stand, you will be an expert on various water brands of UB group .
