Ideal IPL 5 team

The IPL 2012 is finally over with KKR as the deserving winners. CSK were remarkable in coming close to winning the IPL yet again from a not-so-good situation. Teams like RCB and DD relied too much on a few players. MI were a confused lot, especially regarding their opening and won many games in the last over or in fact last ball. RR and PW had almost the same graph but after the initial phase PW just fell away. RR and KXIP did not do much wrong but it was just the competition that was so close and tough. DC were really good with their batting but just could not defend the huge scores that their batsmen set.

Here is possibly one of the best teams of IPL 5:

Apple of my i

You all know of Apple and its "i" products. But how great is it exactly in terms of numbers? Here are some interesting facts:

A trip to Kerala


Our trip to Kerala started from Ahmedabad on a Monday winter morning. We got up around 5 and got ready, went in the car and finally reached the airport. We had 2 big bags and one small one and a purse. We checked in and went in our first flight together. Unfortunately the seats we got weren't together. There are 3 sets of seats on either side and so we both got the ones away from the window on both sides. Though we were close enough, we weren't together. Not the ideal situation I thought. But there wasn't much option. At least till we reached Mumbai where there was a stop for an hour or so. Unfortunately even from Mumbai, only couples got in so obviously I couldn't ask them to trade places with one of us. One lesson I learnt from this was to ask at the airport counter where they issue the tickets to specially ask for the seats to be together!!!

Funny Cricket incident

First watch the video below.

Now I will write what must have been going through their minds:

Sachin facing: "It is on the pads I can flick it away. Oh, it came of the pad. Good it won't travel too far. Definite two in there" and tells it to Kumble.

Sachin: "Oh no, the fielder came in a bit too quickly to complete 2 runs now. But Kumble is coming back for the second. Oh what the heck. It was my call anyways, I need to honor it now. There is no point but let me go anyway."

Kumble: "Oh Sachin, what are you doing? You are the main batsman. You be safe, let me sacrifice my wicket." (Although there is no way to do that now to give up his wicket instead of Sachin's at the striker's end!!)

Sachin: "Anil what are you doing now?? Even a blind man had a better chance of shooting a target than me making it safe. I did and yet you somehow managed to get in trouble when you were perfectly safe by virtue of me honoring my call."

Anil: "Oh dear. I am cooked now"

Having played and watched Cricket for quite a long time now, particularly after having just played recently, I thought it good to put down certain thoughts regarding playing the game.
