Often sporting personalities are very stylish and in a reverse way dictate style.
Though ladies of all ages and builts are innately beautiful and unique, girls and women of diminutive bodily dimensions do have it tough when trying to put together a tasteful outfit. If you’re one of the petite ladies trying to come up with creative girly clothing combinations for every occasion, we have several useful tips on how to make most of your wardrobe to a highly flattering effect.
Simplicity is the key: Few accessories and monochromatic styles
One time-tested trick most fashionable petite ladies observe, simplicity is essential when trying to avoid the garish, messed-up look. For a polished and straightforward girl-style outfit that makes eyes go up and down your figure in admiration, go with monochromatic skirts and dresses that make your legs look longer and your silhouette sleek and taller than it actually is. Similarly, a sophisticated, simple necklace worn with a wide neck shirt or dress will draw the attention upwards and emphasize your neckline instead of your petite anatomy.
Shapes and patterns: Mix prints and stripes to your advantage
Ladies, if you’re going to Cheltenham Festival in March, you’re going to want to prepare what to wear. Fancy frocks and designer clothing are not as much of a focus as they are at other racing events - probably due to the time of year - but that’s not to mean you shouldn’t dress to impress. Our little guide will help you out, so you’ll be certain not make any feared fashion faux pas’.
Wednesday is Ladies Day, and that’s the day to get properly dolled up; the press go mad for it! Flaunt your finest, and make an entrance as if you were walking down the red carpet. Going too OTT will make it seem like you’ve tried too hard though, and whilst hats and fascinators are a must, we’d suggest avoiding insane head gear like Princess Beatrice’s Royal Wedding sci-fi hat. You want to look fabulous, not divide opinions.
As for the other days, the weather really dictates what to wear. Let’s start off by confirming that tweed is not just for the gents. You can get lovely fitted blazers and jackets in a variety of prints and colours, in which case, a simple blouse with skinny trousers or a pencil skirt would suffice. If you can get hold of a tweed dress then you’re onto a winner, though a herringbone pattern could be a bit more feminine and flattering.
Glen Maxwell shows maximum taste with these sunglasses in the IPL 2014 as he threw a massive throw and incredibly took off the stumps ! you can watch the whole match again here or look at 1hr:10s here.They look like Oakley radarlocks.
I have tried to catch as much as I can of the 2014 IPL which for me is the format that will be the saviour of the sport of cricket. t20 is more exciting and it May have been a week more before I write now but I just feel compelled AGAIN by David Miller shoring up an amazing run chase as the Kings 11 face the Rajastan Royals. Of course those that know know that the man doing the business is also Glenn Maxwell. He has made some amazing shots in the teams chasing KKR and today RR for big totals. Single handedly Maxwell was doing enough (a load) but as in this format you go for it risk takes its natural course and a fine 5 I think was as much as he got. An amazing total given the bowling was good despite the shorter boundaries here in Abu Dhabi.
Yes they have brought cricket to Arabia another signal that this is a tournaent that does matter. You might also like the cplt20 when the caribeans do the same format in their style. It's not as big yet but I dont doubt it will become massive too. So the kings 11 punjab are looking like an amazing team. The scourge of the saffers and pomes is the bowling of Mitchell Johnson today he could do nothing with the equally absorbing talent of the young 19 year old royal called Samson, this is the guy that gave the again large total to be chased. I feel for the kings 11 and that they may deserve the odd game where they can have a break and chase just 145 or so...this they might bring up with 5 overs to spare - it begs the question what do you need to score to beat them ? Watson had a good innings finally after 2 lucky early escapes as Miller dropped him ! Such is a good few hours spent enjoying this tournament.
David Miller just pipped Glenn Maxwell to the yes bank maximum sixes aware as they both had 6 of them this game (one over had 3 for Miller !!!) but Miller had the longest. Maybe this seemed harsh on Maxwell as David also earned the kanna keep calm award immediately as he had still a big run rate to chase around 12 with few overs remamining. In the end he made it look easy but with the No 1 batsman not finding the middle for the kings 11 it was a tall order. He did it. I would say single handedly he led them to victory but Glenn Maxwell deserves a lot of the credit if not more for getting them into an unlikely winning position again. I think we will have to go a long way to see a game so good again in this tournament. And kings 11 gave us already 2 of the best so far. Note that Glenn made man of the match to no surprise. Watch this team !

For the first time, Mumbai Indians have been crowned champions of the League. CSK have won the League twice.

Except for AlbieMorkel, Bravo and Viay who scored 10, 15, and 18 runs respectively, the wickets tumbled at regular intervals. Only Dhoni finished when the score was at 125 defiant runs with 9 wickets down.

Dhoni, the CSK skipper states that many of the batsmen did not play too good shots except for Raina and Hussey due to which the team faced a setback. For Mumbai Indians, the win was a kind of sweet revenge, taken for losing against Chennai in the year 2010. Rohit Sharma, captain of the Mumbai Indians team stated that being the captain for MI was a great learning experience and also a challenging one. During this League, the team was determined to play their very best and win the IPL.
In the League, the bowler who takes the maximum number of wickets is awarded the purple cap. While this bowler is on the field itself during the tournament, he gets the honor of wearing this cap. It was Bravo who was successful in ripping through the remaining batting order of CSK. He claimed 4 wickets by giving away 42 runs and became the Purple Cap holder with 31 wickets in total during the IPL 2013. Mike Hussey, the 38 year old Australian cricketer was presented with the Orange Cap for getting 733 runs under his belt this IPL. He said that he would have readily exchanged his Orange Cap for the trophy, but getting it was quite an honor for him.Award for the best young player of the IPL went to Sanju Samson of the Rajasthan Royals team. Samson said he felt extremely lucky to be part of the Rajasthan Royals team. The Fairplay award went to CSK while Shane Watson won the MVP award. For Sachin Tendulkar the batting legend from India, this IPL 2013 crown is another feather addition in his cap. He confirmed that this IPL tournament was his last.

Sahara Pune Warriors has made a decision to pull out of IPL and discontinue renewal of BCCI sponsorship. For the current year, Sahara Pune Warriors has not paid the franchisee fee in full. Due to this, the bank guarantee has been encashed by BCCI. Pune Warriors India was owned by Sahara India Parivar. Their sponsorship of the Indian cricket team will not be renewed now as per announcements made. In December 2013 the present contract is expected to expire. The BCCI did not agree to bring down the fee, after a demand was made by the firm based in Lucknow.
The full franchisee fee of the Pune Warriors team was not paid by Sahara resulting in the BCCI encashment of the bank guarantee. A representative of Sahara has stated that the decision of Sahara to withdraw from the IPL is a final and firm one. The plug has been pulled by Sahara the second time actually. Due to the same kind of reasons, they pulled the plug in 2012, however they put in efforts to have their differences with BCCI bridged thus returning to the fold. For ten years, a franchise was brought by Sahara for Rs.1702 crores in the year 2011. Even if the whole fee is waived, Sahara states, that it will not return back to the IPL. The group has also stated that there was a lot of temptation for withdrawing from the sponsorship of the Indian cricket team. However, in the interest of the Indian cricket players, it refrained to do so. Out of the sixteen matches played, Pune Warriors have won four matches. In this IPL – 6th season, the team has finished at the eighth position out of nine.
Rajiv Shukla, Vice President of BCCI was approached by the owners of Sahara Pune Warriors. If there is no reduction in the installment fee and if the board tries to get the bank guarantees encashed, then Sahara would pull out of the tournament, the Pune Warrior owners stated. Efforts were put in by BCCI to convince the franchise a resolution to the issue would be found amicably. It also seems that the BCCI wants the whole issue to be postponed till the end of the league only, Sahara sources say. Sahara had made a request to the BCCI that the bank guarantees should not be touched. In April it was clearly stated that they would be pulling out of the cricket tournament. They did not want to cause any jeopardy and hence decided to wait till they would complete their share of matches, a source from Sahara informs. Efforts were made to talk to the BCCI however, the bank was also threatened with dire legal action if there was no release of bank guarantees. For quite a long time, Sahara had stood by BCCI and when no one had come forward, they have given money, states a source. Sahara is just not able to believe the fact that just for a few crores, the BCCI could do this to them.
