7 players and why they hit IPL jackpot

1. Kieron Pollard: To fill the Resident Hairdo Weirdo's post lying vacant since Robin Uthappa left Mumbai Indians;

2. Shane Bond: To bolster West Bengal Police which cut such a sorry figure against the Maoists;

3. Mohd Kaif: Owes his contract to misunderstanding. With Preity Zinta nursing a sore heart, Kings XI Punjab wanted an actress for their new video and thought Katrina Kaif was on offer. Ms Zinta later strongly resented this skullduggery by Lalit Modi;

4. Eoin Morgan: A man of well-known scruples, Vijay Mallya wanted a Catholic taster for his breweries. Besides, he was under the impression that the stripling was ICC chief David Morgan's offspring;

5. Damien Martyn: The mothballed veteran was plucked out of retirement to fill the babysitting void at Rajasthan Royals since Kamran Akmal was not at hand;

6. Wayne Parnell: Delhi Daredevils could not get over its infatuation for players nicknamed 'Pigeon';

7. Yousuf Abdulla: Hear it here first. A grateful Lalit Modi paid the money from his pocket as a Thank-You gesture to South Africa for hosting IPL II.

maybe Pollard will have "IPL" or "Mumbai Indians" spelled out on his head this time!

Aditya, I'm equally eager to see his new hairdo.

There is something really messed up about guys being curious about the hairdo of other guys.

I just heard on twitter that apparently Nehra is Parnell's idol... also you're never gonna let Kamran get away with that lame story, are you :)

Mahek, talking about me, I wonder at the huge inequity that has me and Pollard at two extremes of the spectrum.

Achettup, heard this story from a senior journo. After IPL I, players were discussing who would buy which car. When Nehra was asked the question, someone else volunteered with the answer and said Nehra would buy an ambulance:)
