Notes from the IPL
The game seems to be further loaded in favour of batsmen. The boundaries are shorter.
The tables have turned. India now has the phirangs(cheerleaders) dancing for them.
The cheerleaders look fine, but the camera angles don't.
Sledging might become less prevalent. It's hard to be friendly team mates one day, and then be abusive opponents on another.
Cricket is taking on baseball hues. Finesse, style, and maybe even timing, will soon be lost causes.
I still wonder why Shane Warne retired. You will too if you've watched the Rajasthan Royals.
