PBKS vs GT
Match#16

TEWATIA does it again!
Chasing 190 for victory, GT find themselves needing 12 of the last two balls. Man on strike Tewatia coolly obliges! 2 mighty hits and its game, set and match for GT.

What a match! What a player! Remember the name-
T-E-W-A-T-I-A!

Hardik Pandya has done more than enough to warrant his place in the Indian T20WC team. Its another thing that he's injured now! Don't know how serious. Selectors shouldn't pick him in every series.

Stoinis & Holder are completely underutilized by KL Rahul. Has happened twice now & it has cost LSG some crucial points.

Virat Kohli badly needs a month long break!

Rishab Pant trying to call his batsmen back because the umpire didn’t give a no-ball was excessive. They’d have probably been fined if they walked off.

Still, it always hurts to see a wrong decision in today’s age of technology and cameras.

What's with the low crowd turnout at the stadiums? First few matches I thought there must be some covid restrictions, but almost every match seems to have a very low turnout. Cricinfo commentary for one of the matches mentioned that too.

I remember matches being sold out really fast previous IPLs, was almost impossible to get tickets. Is the IPL losing its sheen? Or is it because of the restricted venues this time? Wonder what the TV numbers are relative to other seasons.

I thought 14 matches/team for a 8 team IPL was too long and now for a 10 team IPL it's even longer!. I think people lose interest after the first half of the IPL and interest picks up again only during Knock outs.

Matches are too long.Each T20 match is too long. It should be done and dusted in 3 hours. Anything beyond that atleast I don't have time to watch them!

Watching IPL on TV is horrible. It is filled with Pan/Gutka ads (endorsed by almost all shameless bollywood A-listers). Soon we will have all bollywood leading ladies selling Gutka.

What baffles me is the lack of common sense in cricket rules.

You can only review LBW and catch decisions of the on-field umpire. Wides/no balls can't be reviewed! It is UDRS (Umpire Decision Review System), so one should be allowed to review any decision by the umpire!

When you review for a LBW or catch, umpire also checks by default the fairness of the delivery. he also automatically checks if it was some other form of dismissal other than what was reviewed. But fairness of the delivery is only limited to front foot no-ball. if it is a wide for height is not checked.

Samson recently reviewed for a catch (against KKR I guess) even though he knew it was not a catch, purely because he was irritated by the continuous wide-for-height calls. but the TV umpire didn't check the wide-for-height!

Add to that the betting apps. Feels like India has opened up to legalize betting. Funny part, all these apps have failed actors (rather not so popular in current scheme of business) with a very similar theme. A signature dance step or a dialogue and then 'yeh khel mein vidya jokhim shamil hai...'

Betting on the IPL is widespread. I used to work late at one of my jobs in Bangalore and usually while getting coffee in the cafeteria at night, I'd overhear the office housekeeping staff talk about the bets they placed during each match. Some of the sums were not trivial and I can imagine represented a big portion of their salaries. This was at least 5-6 years ago. I imagine it has only grown since then. A year or so ago, while getting a haircut at a local barber's in Goa, I overheard a conversation between two men also talking about their significant losses on IPL bets. I guess the government stands to make a lot of money by regularizing or quasi-legalizing it. But like most gambling, from horse racing to crypto, it is going to affect those on the initial rungs of the socioeconomic ladder more than it does most of us. And those are the main takers for get-rich-quick dreams and more likely to identify with the B-list actors in those adverts.

IPL- India Pan-masala League would be more appropriate

A clinical performance by GT to win. While very few gave them chance (including me) they were the best tram and they won. Deserving champions of Tata IPL 2022.

New Franchisee's First IPL, First Match in their homeground, First title...Fairytale stuff!

Each and every player contributed throughout the tournament. Hardik, Saha, Wade, Miller, Rashid, Gill, Tewatia, Shami, Ferguson, Sai Kishore and Dayal!!

Although Boring for a Final, today was just clinical.

Congratulations Gujarat Titans!

Gujarat Titans crowned IPL 2022 champions!

Titans got going right from the outset and never did they lose their intensity all through the tournament. Superlative effort from one of the two latest IPL teams and are worthy champions for sure.

Strange decision by Samson to bat first when everyone knows about GT's chasing credentials! Most teams prefer chasing nowadays. Both teams did not have batting depth. RR were heavily reliant on Buttler at the top. Good to see a brand new team win the IPL!
