Chris Gayle leads the West Indies off after their stunning victory Sabina Park, Kingston, Jamaica 1st Test West Indies v England February2009

The IPL, it’s been going on for ever, it’s still got about ten days of group stage still to go.  So over half way and my selected team Kolkata is still hanging on in there,  admittedly tenuously.

But they did put in some rather dapper fielding today at Eden Gardens, against the rather fierce Delhi Daredevils and the lovely Colly and Warner were both sent packing with few runs.  Interesting times.

Even the ITV 4 studio seems to have matured.  Gosh, who’d have thought!

As posted yesterday;  TMS them no lie.   Durham County Cricket Club Chief Executive, David Harker, and Chairman, Clive W Leach CBE, have just returned from a business trip to India where they had been invited by Chennai based Durham sponsors, 5G.   Where will it go from here….?

Up early and listening to the Test match on the radio.  Test Match Special has just had a lunchtime report on the progress of this years IPL and its impact in India, part of it mentioning that representatives from Durham have been speaking with the Chennai Supper Kings IPL franchise.

That’s the team in violent yellow with Matty Hayden, his mongoose, Albie Morkle and Dohni.

Presumably it is purely a fact finding mission and I know yellow is one of Durham’s colours but a whole strip is not a good look!  It’s a bit of extra IPL interest that I wasn’t anticipating anyway!
