Gautam Gambhir Says That His Team Still Has A Fair Chance At The IPL 2013

 

Gautam Gambhir’s KKR team has already lost thirteen matches and is almost out of the play offs. However, the skipper continues to be very optimistic about having a fair chance, this IPL season. He feels that the team can make the cut definitely in the ongoing games. He feels that the competition is still open at the moment.

He hopes that his team tries its level best and delivers what it should.

 

Virat Kohli, the 24 years old RCB captain, who at various occasions like the rest of the cricketers likes to flaunt Oakley, Nike, Addidas and other branded sunglasses criticized the crowds at Wankhede Stadium for jeering him in a recent cricket match against Mumbai Indians. The visitors had requested for a decision by the third empire on an incident of a controversial run out and this request turned out in their favor. The agitated crowd booed the 24 year old Kohli and called him a ‘cheat’. He faced the ire of the crowd when he came for his batting and also during the presentation post-match.

The RCB team led by Virat Kohli has been faring well against the Delhi Daredevils. When Gambhir was asked about the kind of strategy he will be applying to counter AB de Villiers, Kohli and Chris Gayle, and the likes, he stated that his team does not strategize against any particular cricketer. He also said that his team does not discuss individuals and their main aim is to determine what can be done best to win, and keep sticking to their strength.

Stiff Challenge Faced By Kolkata Knight Riders Against The Hosts, Mumbai Indians!

Stiff Challenge Faced By Kolkata Knight Riders Against The Hosts, Mumbai Indians!

All five matches played by Mumbai Indians on their home ground so far have been won by them in the IPL 2013. It appears that even though Kolkata Knight Riders are cutting it fine for a berth in the playoffs, they are yet not out of the IPL race. At the Pepsi IPL 2013, if they had not been defending champions, they would have already been written off. A lot is being expected from the KKR team as far as pushing the Mumbai Indians team at the 7th May match is concerned. The match is to be played at the Wankhede Stadium and the so far the MI team has won only five IPL cricket matches. They achieved the most unlikely result possible during the last match played when they gained a victory by 60 runs over Chennai Super Kings.

KKR team needs to be aware that with a superb performance of that kind, the reputation as well as morale of almost any team can be raised. Everything seems to be in fine fettle, apart from the struggle of identify the best seamer at number three, from Pawan Suyal, Munaf Patel, Rishi Dhawan and Dhawal Kulkarni who have all been tried and the poor form of Sachin Tendulkar at the batting order at the top. The Mumbai Indians team has many pluses and just one and a half minuses.

As far as the bowling attack from the KKR team is concerned, Dwayne Smith, bowler has done quite well more often thus ensuring some great memories for the team. Just 15 days back, in Kolkata during a 45 ball 62 with five sixes and three fours, he tore apart the bowling attack from the Kolkata team. In the middle order there are three pillars including Dinesh Karthik, Rohit Sharma and Smith, even if Dinesh Karthik’s form has been seen dipping down from where it was at the beginning of the tournament. During the last few overs of the last innings, good care was taken by Ambati Rayudu and Kieron Pollard.

Bowling of the Mumbai Indian bowlers is quite lethal which the Kolkata batsmen who misfire need to be aware of well. Mitchell Johnson has been consistent enough about picking up of wickets. Pragyan Ojha and Harbhajan Singh have been successful in striking regularly and have conceded runs at giving away, less than seven runs per over. Even if Lasith Malinga has not been too much amongst the wickets, but whenever he was given the ball, he has been keeping things tight.

The Kolkata team has a strong player line up. On Friday Yusuf Pathan too had a great innings against Kings XI Punjab. Captain of the Kolkata team, Gautam Gambhir never stopped backing Yusuf and has been extremely patient. Kolkata fans expect a lot from Yusuf from the remaining matches at the IPL tournament.

David Miller Strikes The Fastest Third Century At The IPL 

David Miller’s hard work has paid off during this IPL. He left Bangalore stunned by slamming 101 off 38 balls, the fastest third century at the IPL games this season. He has remembered to always follow his father’s advise, ‘If it is in the arch, it is out of the park. If it is in the V, it is in the tree’. On Monday, Miller was able to ravage the bowlers of Royal Challenger’s Bangalore, almost single handedly to take on the Kings XI Punjab and end in a resounding and unexpected six wicket win. In the line-up, he came in to bat as the fourth batsman and chased a nice 190 runs. At 51 for 3 in 7.4 over’s, his side was in quite an uncomfortable spot. David Hussey was the partner he lost during the 10th over, but despite this he decided to unleash a real carnage and sent the ball flying out of the cricket field, thereafter. He struck seven sixes and eight boundaries just leaving the local fans screaming with joy while the visitors remained stunned in silence.

When David spoke after the match, he said that since a year and a half, he has been working extremely hard to get himself to this level and explode this manner. He is extremely thankful to Lord Jesus Christ and is very happy with the result that came off. In the 14th over, the Bangalore captain had dropped him, but this twenty three year old gave a flawless knock and looked towards just going straight. David says that’s when ViratKohli dropped him, he felt a bit lucky. The total was a big one to achieve and at the same time even Sathish put in a very good effort. David’s aggression rubbed off on very well on Sathish and he too hit some very big shots towards the end. The win was finally brought in by the South African with a straight six and in the process the century also was completed.

Akshay Kumar Fails To Get Footage At A Publicity Stunt At The IPL 2013

Akshay Kumar Fails To Get Footage At A Publicity Stunt At The IPL 2013

Akshay Kumar Fails To Get Footage At A Publicity Stunt At The IPL 2013

Something went horribly wrong with Akshay Kumar’s publicity stunt at the IPL 6. ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Again’ was the forthcoming release this macho actor wanted to promote at the Eden Gardens. Sonakshi Sinha, Imran Khan and Akshay Kumar wore specially designed shirts to promote the movie when they entered the Eden Gardens. The trio had thought that with their starry presence and the print on their T Shirts – ‘Once Upon A Time In IPL’ they would be able to woo the cameras.

The tag line on the shirts was very similar to the upcoming film release, ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai Again’. The three actors had turned up for the game between Delhi Daredevils and Kolkata Knight Riders at the IPL 6, a high octane game, for promoting their film. However the cameras did not focus on the three actors which was not anticipated by Akki. The camera lenses had snubbed the three stars quite royally. It was discovered later on that, it was the behest of the administration officials that the cameras at the IPL were being operated due to which Akki and the two actors were not able to get even a second of the air time.

It must be noted that an official agreement is required for any campaign for promoting films by stars. According to the rules at the IPL games there is a code of conduct that needs to be stringently adhered to. Films stars are not allowed to indulge in any kind of cheeky campaign to promote their films. Celebrities of Bollywood town have always considered the IPL games as a massive tool for public relations, project promotion, etc. Whenever there is such a promotional drive to be undertaken, it becomes mandatory for the Bollywood town celebrities to seek permission before hand. It is heard that Akshay Kumar was not kicked about the idea of wearing the T Shirt for promoting the film, but it was the promotional team of his film who had convinced him that this gimmick would turn out to be a favorable one for him. However the gimmick only backfired. While Akshay Kumar was not successful in getting just 15 seconds of fame at the IPL 6, Shahrukh Khan, Akshay’s rival was seen clapping, cheering and waving for his team at the IPL this season.
