Kanpur, Ahmedabad in 2010 IPL mix


Purists can go and fly a kite. The Indian Premier League is getting bigger. Come Twenty10…I mean 2010… and Kanpur and Ahmedabad too will be thrown into the IPL mix. Sahara is keen to get the Kanpur franchise, while Anil Ambani’s ADAG is speculated to land the Ahmedabad team.

Here is a sneak peek into the future:

  1. Mohd Kaif would be found unconscious in his Noida flat following the announcement that he has been granted Icon status for the Kanpur franchise;
  1. Luck Ben, as they would call Dame Luck in Gujarat, would smile as much for Parthiv Patel, who’ll be in an altered state of consciousness following a similar Hai Kaun- to-Icon metamorphosis;
  1. Kanpur players would dump hi-fives for Sahara Pranaam after every dismissal/boundary.
  1. Aishwarya Rai, in that trademark bordered saree, would be Sahara’s Brand Ambassador, with the entire Bachchan clan, and the toady Amar Singh, in tow;
  1. Kokilaben Ambani, also in bordered saree, will give Aishwarya tough competition as her Ahmedabad counterpart. Much to the relief of the players, blessing would be doled out instead of flying kisses and hugs.

if Parthiv patel becomes an icon, he would deserve all the flying kisses and hugs from Kokila

Q said...

Tina Ambani?

Scorpicity, the question is whether Parthiv would mind paying that price for gaining the icon status!

Som said...

Q, Tina Munim, I mean Ambani is too busy with art, charity etc to spare time for IPL. Besides, she has literally outgrown the possibility of being a cheerleader/brand ambassador.

who will give 'sahara' to md kaif then som? ;-)

Som said...

SP, valid question...who? who? I guess Rajeev Shukla won't let go this opportunity to throw his (heavy)weight behind a UP player.

Only Luck Ben could possibly save Parthiv Patel

If next year, parthiv becomes an icon, I will shave my head and bang it on the tv for the rest of my life :)

Som said...

Scorpicity, I'm afraid Parthiv's response won't be any different to yours once that happens.

Peter Pan Parthiv Patel, just doesn't grow, on you or himself! Little Hearts tvcs, a match saving test innings, the CVs not grown either. Oh yeah, he got married.

Also in spite of all his ranji runs, doubt if any indian wktkeepr will flourish internationally in the next few years.
