Cheerleaders may attract more men to the IPL but who brings the girls in? Here are XI IPL hotties who get the ladies giggling and tossing their hair.
Now, while I'm not going to deny that a good looking sportsman will bring in the female viewers, it's quite an extraordinary sight to imagine ladies "giggling and tossing their hair" either at a player on the ground or at their television screen.
The article is some sort of strange combination of relevant insights into players and drooling over this theme team. It's right at times and just completely wrong at other times. Take, for example, the description of Dan Vettori:
Contrary to popular belief, us girls aren't fixated on men with rippling muscles and washboard abs. No, not if Dan walks into the room. His bespectacled look and slow, deliberate manner of speaking are guaranteed to make you go "aww" and wish you could take him home to Mum.Half of that is right. The other half is just plain weird.
Not to mention AB making the cut. On looks alone, yeah alright, if you happen to look at the right time.
Brett Lee makes "pretty girls look like hags". Not sure what the intention of that was.
Dale Steyn is "blond". Not in my world.
And apparently Sangakkara the cricket makes the list. The list of men who make girls "giggle and toss their hair". Would you giggle and toss your hair for Sangakkara? I wouldn't. If anything, I'd ask him to play Twister. He looks like a Twister person.
If you were going to make a list like this, there were better options for it.
The article is something I'd expect to see in a women's mag or on Cricket Australia's website, not on Cricinfo.
