Royal fuckups

You know what I'm talking about. It was good entertainment, well worth your nonexistent dollar to watch. Jadeja intent on running out as many team mates was the highlight of Rajasthan's innings.

But do I care? An emphatic no. Possibly an exclamation mark on the end of that too. It's all well and fine, KKR will probably win this one in a bizarre inversion of their playing performances. Even losing wickets early won't kill them chasing a total of 101.

Meanwhile, Albie's preparing to fuck up big time against a top bloke we all know. Good job, man. Keep it up. Why am I so bitter? Maybe because he's being a goddamn prick and refusing to play well when he needs to.

Doesn't mean he's not the flagship player of this blog. Players with faults are the best players made. I'm pretty sure I just butchered a colloquialism so much just then that you wouldn't be able to recognise its origins. There's a good indicator of my sanity, dears.

And for good measure, down with Agarkar! Someone chop off his ears.

Dont be too quick in underestimating the defending champs. There's some fight left in them .. It will take KKR one hell of a chase to keep Shane Warne away from a shot at the semis.

raj said...

Yes, Q. Amy, Warne is not out of it. He has the important task of keeping CSK out of the finals - he will sure make it to that date.

Amy said...

Clearly, KKR are desperate to be the real fuckups in this instance. Oh well, don't care. Let them be.

Q said...

Dont agree Amy.. its the pressure created by the Royals and Warne.. the field placings, the bowling, has been top stuff.. Munaf's 3rd over was a beauty.. as was Botha's first..

Amy said...

Same difference.

I used to love Molly Ringwald.

Q said...

Who?

Amy said...

The most famous teenage redhead ever. I was just quoting her without realising, and that's what made me remember.

Anyway, it's not really relevant. Point is, KKR look set to somehow lose the match. Amazing.

Mahek said...

This is like one of those "reality" shows, isn't it? Would it be a surprise if Rajasthan win this one and Punjab come back from the dead to beat Chennai in the next game?

Q said...

Its a matter of perspective.. more than KKR losing it, I think its the Royals who want to somehow win it.

A lesser team would have lost by 8-9 wickets and it would have been over already.

raj said...

Amy, not so amazing. Its just a curtain-raiser for the CSK-RR match. Watch out for Dhoni's men being mesmerizeed out of the tournament in exactly the same manner. Getting all out for 101 was part of a plan - obviously, Warne saw KKR chasing 189 the other day because anyway it was a huge total and that relieved pressure off them to go after shots from ball 1 - so he created pressure on them by getting all out for 101. Small totals create doubts and pressure. The genius of Warne!

Mahek said...

What are you smoking Raj? Chennai are already through by virtue of a far superior NRR even if Rajasthan win this one and they lose.

Q said...

Mahek: i think Raj is talking abt stopping CSK in the semis or the final, whenever they meet next..

Mahek said...

Oh yeah, guess I missed that part.

Anyway, the only way these two can meet is if they make the final and I don't see that happening.

Q said...

Damn it!

raj said...

Q, yeah. Damn it!
Well, the joke's on me :-(.
Who's going to stop the CSK now?
(Oh we still have Gilly and AB, not to worry!)

Sam said...

They are out. Out goes Warnie to join his great colleagye Tendulkar and Ganguly...on the ousted skip lists.

102 doesnt make a winning score. blame it to the bowling, batting and fielding of royals.

as i have said the loacl Indian lads for KKR, MI and now RR let the skippers down!!

IPL....

Rayden said...

Just when I thought I want CSK to lose all matches, my favourite player decideds to join the team. What do I do? Well if they give Hussey a game, then I want CSK to win. If not, then they must lose. Oh wait, there is Yuvraj on the other side. Damn, I want both these teams to lose.

Mariam said...

amy did u see hussey at the end of the match???...he came by t watch!!!n he's available 4 the semis!!!!

Mariam said...

poor morne he looked pretty fucked up in the last over...he was probably frustrated coz he did'nt play...

Mariam said...

"rayden" ....wats dat?? a combination of raina n hayden's name??

Mariam said...

i'm not able t sleep!!!!i'm too happy n excited.....

Q said...

Wats the excitement abt Miriam?

Rayden said...

Hi Mariam - Rayden actually means the lord of thunder and lightening. But I never realized how much it looked similar to "Hayden" till you pointed out. Time to change my name!! Also with all your excitement I am assuming you are a Chennai fan - well done - amazing game. Also Yuvraj and Sreesanth out of the tournament. Me excited as well.

Anonymous said...

Lightning Rayden. Good to see that Warney finally dropped pathetic Smith. At least they got closer without him.

Mariam said...

i'm excited coz chennai won the match!!!n hav made a big improvement in the bowling department....n hussey is available....

Mariam said...

Oh i c....dats a cool name tho...meaning thunder n lightning..actually if u come t think of it..... if raina n hayden its gonna b thunder n lightning....well i do sound kinda stupid...but GO CHENNAI!!!!

hey rayden n some of u other guys out there....y do u hate chennai so much..?? but i do hate yuvraj n piyush chawla tho...

Mariam said...

I meant if raina n hayden get together...

Rayden said...

Mariam - I don't hate Chennai at all. In fact last year I wanted them to win in the finals. Me not supporting CSK was just a joke. Since they beat Mumbai which led to the MI team going out of IPL. Also since I wanted KKR to lose and CSK managed to lose to KKR, I started saying I wanted to see Chennai lose. So we were with you mate. Would love to see a Chennai vs Delhi final. Would be awesome. Also I hope Hussey plays in the semis.

Chennai has more chance if it keeps A.Morkel out. He's been pathetic and big Morne did nothing for the Royals either. Morkels have flopped, the worst pair of brothers in world cricket. Husseys are guns.

Mariam said...

well dats nice t know rayden...well last year's final match was unbelievable...it was really thrilling....

Mariam said...

Uh anonymous....its not morne's fault he got t play vry few matches.....its up2 the captain or whoever is in charge of selecting....he was frustrated he didn't get picked....n A morkel picks up the crucial wickets in the early overs....there u have it

Anonymous said...

Mariam Shane did not pick Morne because he knows he cannot bowl.

Mariam said...

well morne is a player for the future...oh please!!!if he did'nt know how t bowl u think he'd b picked 4 the national side??n give the guy some space he's working hard and learning a lott...

Morne is sex on a stick said...

Morne is in international cricket because he's the cutest.
