We are the POWER!!

to hell with modesty...

if last night was not the eye opener to the rest of world...then i am afraid what will be...

the future is here...

and we are the future...we are the power...

not ICC...

and certainly not BCCI...as many believe...

its WE, the fans, i am talking about...

WE will decide IPL future...WE will decide the millions of dollars that are invested in it are worth it...

WE will make people like Mukesh Ambani...Vijay Mallaya...SRK...BCCI & Co...look like stupid...or genius who saw the future of cricket...

so guys get ready to be spoiled...most sought after but difficult to please breed...

...coz with the start of IPL...WE HAVE GOT THE POWER...WE will decide the fate of stars...so demand nothing but the best...and make it sure they provide just that...don't get easily satisfied...

as i said to hell with modesty...

and OUR first wish is...DO NOT SHORTEN THE BOUNDARY...

let the boundary of a ground remain as it is...

thanks wildkiwi...and same to you...

how can anyone refuse a man with fbi printed on shirt ;-))

Som said...

I must admit I did not think that way but yes, IPL is indeed empowerment of the fans. We'll make or break fortunes. SRKs, Ambanis, Mallyas -- all at our mercy. This is what it should be. Cricket is more about players and fans -- sponsors and administrators are just the facilitators, no less, no more.

Straight Point said...

exactly som, they are at our mercy...they will have to give us best or they know where to go..

scorpicity said...

They booed Pawar.... that was so cool.

Aashrey said...

Trideep said...

Ankit said...

yeah. its the fans who will decide. I love the IPL. The only problem which may arise is the one of monotony.

Q said...

Sure its the empowerment of us fans, but I love it already!

Its the best thing to happen to cricket I think. I hope ODI cricket is murdered and test nations start playing 5-test series again.

Trideep said...

But the point still to be considered is whether this format changes the way tests and ODI's are played. 438 is the highest that has been scored in an ODI. So the day is not far off when the teams start scoring 500-550. The way the batsmen are performing in IPL the above said possibility is not a distant dream. Moreover what happens to the test. Will they last all the 5 days (Kanpur or not).

Jrod said...

It needs more death.

Straight Point said...

scorpy...

yea...one must have seen the impression on his face...

Straight Point said...

aashrey...

Straight Point said...

Straight Point said...

ankit...

welcome here and thanks for comments...

you bet we have insatiable appetite for cricket...

Straight Point said...

Q...

good point!

how i want to see 5 test series...between competitive teams i.e....

Straight Point said...

trideep...

mark my words...

T20 is actually bowler's revenge from batsmen...

they will carry this bang-bang attitude into test...and there they will be exposed...

Straight Point said...

uncle..

come again??

Trideep said...

SP

Ont the other hand i think its the batsmens revenge on bowlers for terrifying them on uncovered pitches for a long long time. Infact the start of ODI's, T20's.. everything leads to that.

Straight Point said...

tri

any which way you look at it...its like giving batters the sugar poison if mindless hits and once they will be accustomed they will pull the plug...

Trideep said...

SP,

Thats my concern. The way the batters are playing, they will carry the same way in both tests and ODI's. Its not about the bowlers revenge. Whats more important is the effect its gonna have on Test matches.

about me...

BCC!straight point (sp) is restless... relentless... but a fun loving guy... likes to live life to fullest... trying to discover himself through cricket... welcome to this little world of his...

sp is also a bored member at BCC!
