Now that a form of cricket is on real TV I feel duty bound to watch, Bollywood pompom fluff or not.  I have never seen any IPL action to date but decided on Kolkata before the first year started – hence not being able to support wor Colly n the Devils, which I probably would have done if he had played in that first year, although I also like the look of Mumbai this year.

I chose Kolkata for non team reasons mainly because I really like Kolkata as a city.  In fact I really like Bengal and the NE Indian states.  So no Durham players but fits in the the NE thing – so there is tenuous for you.  I quite like Kartik and he has been with them from the start

We have the important stuff covered: the good name – Ganguly, the weird spinner – Mendis, the luxuriant hair-do that is Ishant Sharma, the too laid back for his own good Gayle and the ‘if he ever gets to bowl I will be gob-smacked and faint’ – Bond.  [he is not listed on their website strangely as he seemed to be quite an expensive buy – the invisible man even!]

So onward until the County season starts – then I’ll be hoping that young Stokes decides it’s his ambition to play in the big time, and bats like he’s on an Indian flat track all season [hopefully dismissing all bowling as easily], now that would be something to look forward to.
