CHENNAI SUPER KINGS!! CHAMPIONS OF IPL3

yeah!! we won!! the championship is coming home..what a match it was..first it was the big question that will sachin play or not, then it was the big ceremony ( frankly, i didn like anything in it except the performance by the mozart of madras A.R.Rahman..bips looked awful 😦 ) the match was interesting no doubt bout it..all the tension, excitement and flashes of genius in dhoni’s captaincy as usual..only flaw (dunno how to put it) was when sachin didn walk out when the umpire didn show him out even when he knew he had hit the ball (?) the replays were clear that it was out..all this fades into pale insignifance in the light of the fact that Chennai won the title and they deserved it..YEAH!! i was on cloud nine watchin the victory..the trophy was like fallin into the hands of mumbai indians but the wicket of keiron pollard made sure the trophy had our names written all over it.. πŸ™‚ but the presentation ceremony made me feel like crap!! i mean, what the hell were they trying to do?? modi comes in and reads a shitty i didn do anything kinda letter and no representatives for chennai in the presentation party..if this was worse, Mr shastri was readin the names and awards like he was paying homage..that was ipl finals boss, not some funeral place!! yeah, ur sachin (who played through the pain of the stitches and who did everthing to ensure his team wins..even faking his wicket) didn win..so,all should cut a sorry face and not congratulate the winners eh?? where is the bloody sportsmanship?? the crowd just leftΒ  after the last ball..who came up with the big idea of hosting the finals in mumbai?? loser..at least next time the finals should be hosted by a neutral venue.. to top it all up, the news channels showed modi s firing as a main news and the victory as a marquee underneath it..they showed some group stage matches so big and the finals gets this kinda treatment?? go to hell mates..we don’t need bollywood stars and fancy shit to popularize our team..WE ARE CHENNAI SUPER KINGS AND WE ARE THE CHAMPIONS!!!

I’ve just got one question for all of em..if sachin had won yesterday, wud he and his team have got the same treatment??? the answer is a two letter word starting with a N and ending with O..obvious!!

semi finals thana da macha..vidra finals la pathukalam..

IPL_Chennai_Super_Kings11

this “famous” dialog from the movie gilli made me smile after watching the chennai super kings drop out from the road to finals..for a chennai fan like me, there is nothin much to cheer about this season..well, this ipl wasn’t as big as the last one..many might disagree with me but i feel so..only the first 5 or 6 and the last 5 overs were entertaining..and, ya..the zoo zoo was a lot better than many matches.. πŸ˜‰ well, this yr’s ipl t20 was more like an odi, or should i say..a reality show.. seriously.. scores hardly crossing 200 nd they even put up 120 to 130 as a high score at times..maybe its because of the pitch nd the conditions thr..but what is lost is lost..wud hav been a lot better if it had happened in India..now comes the question..where did the chennai super kings go wrong?..i guess a lotta places..tat kid tyagi bowled some brilliant overs but was yet not considered for the semi final playing 11..nd oram..come on, he hardly got a over or two to bat nd the same with the ball too..he ain’t no jonty rhodes..the y was he still thr in every single playing 11??..and for hussey..who on earth asked him to come to south africa wen he could have watched the match at his home..( maybe they thought of using him if we reached finals..but we didn and he was like..just another from the crowd..) and wat bout ntini..all he did was to cheer the team along with sivamani ( he was awesome πŸ™‚ )..anyways its all over for the team in yellow now and fingers crossed that hayden wins the orange cap..some consolation..the world cup is around the corner and looking at the ipl, none can say who ll win tat..its not bout experience anymore..its just bout the present form of a player..if you dont believe that, you should have watched dravid’s reaction when pandey was given out yesterday..well, its back to the drawing board for the chennai team with next year in mind..new plans, new transfers..one good thing about yesterday’s result was that my fellow 3rd year students don’t hav to glued today to their tv s (we got exams tomorrow πŸ˜‰ ) except for akon and katrina’s performance in the finale that is.. πŸ˜‰

NOT A FIT ENDING TO THE GR8 SEASON..

Yup..i am a ferrari fan who loves to see the scarlet car end up on the top in every single race..but this season wasn’t like i expected..but pretty much most of the big guys won atleast once..this season has seen lotta winners,which was never possible in the era of MSC..man,he is one true legend..( personally, i didn like him sayin that lewis is incredible..well,ppl make mistakes πŸ˜‰ )..its not just a one man race or a two horse showdown anymore..kimi, massa, lewis, alonso, kubica nd now vettel..every1 of em had showed that they can win nd more are yet to come..i need to mention bout kovaleinen here..wat happened to tat guy nd his car..man,every time lewis gets a finish..but kov gets his car into trouble or is it the car tat got him into trouble?? i myself prayed a few times tat the silver car shud stop halfway..it did,but it was heikki 😦  wats the use..but tat is the one which got us theconstructors title for the season..it was kinda consolation, but fine..ferrari wasn’t theirbest at the pits this season but i’m sure they ll work it out next season..they have to..now,after watchin this season’s performance..wat can we expect next at the season enderin dubai..to say frankly, i dunno.. but i want kimi to win the title next season..there is jus very few things between him nd the championship..a silver of the title holder lewis,the scarlet of the shaped up massa,alonso ready to hit back with his renault,also the bmw s ndthe new kid on the block..vettel..so, its gonna be one hell of a season next time..waitin for tat..

my hopes for the next season :

1. lewis learns some good driving wen he is behind someone.
2. no more troublesome pit stops in the scarlet camp.
3. commentators who don talk bout one single guy nd sing praises for him..
4. some sense into my cable operator s head who blocks the channel at times of a fabulous
race.. πŸ˜‰
