Live streaming and Albie

I'm watching the game through some very dodgy live streaming online because apparently One doesn't think broadcasting the IPL live is good enough.


Thank god for Hayden and Oram.

RAINA IS ON DRUGS. HE GOT GILLY OUT. Anyway, this is a joke. DC will still get there with plenty to spare.

CSK's middle order is sh*t this year.

I couldn't even get the live streaming to work. Cricinfo it is for me. Woe is me. Wah etc..

Albs needs to take some wickets tonight. He's letting my fantasy team down. Although, strangely, he's still not my worst performer...

Maithreyi said...

What the --

60/0 in FOUR OVERS.

I'm just going to go sit in that corner there and never watch IPL again.

F*k you CSK.

Maithreyi, I couldn't agree more. They're failing spectacularly. Hayden is contributing a third of their scores alone.

Richie, yeah, well, at least he usually takes wickets. That's not where he's supposed to perform best, though. I want some good batting, dammit.

Amy said...

Maithreyi, I stopped watching after the innings break. My internet is fucked up.

And apparently, so is Chennai's bowling.

Maithreyi said...

Raina turns out to be GOD.

Then Joginder comes and reminds us exactly why Chennai suck.

The illusion was nice while it lasted, though.

Maithreyi said...


Balaji bowling yorkers and dot balls and taking Rohit Sharma's wicket.

Obviously sitting with my legs folded up like a badly made pretzel has inflenced something in Chennai's hitherto unsavoury planetary arrangements and influences.

The cramped and sore muscles would be so worth it if we can pull a win out of our asses here.

Maithreyi said...

Dhoni is KILLING me with his bowling changes tonight.

Morkel to bowl the penultimate over with 16 runs to get.

Obviously MS wants to get things over quickly.

Maithreyi said...

We lost.

We took it to the last over, but we lost.

Thank you, Gony. Thanks, Albie. Funny you came up with the 5-run no-ball at the only juncture in the chase where we looked like we might win. Keep it up.

Thank you, Dhoni. Obviously, this is some kind of penance thing where you're trying to work off the negative side-effects of your good-luck mojo of the past couple of years in the IPL before it hits the national side. Cunning.

Deccan: 4 out of 4. Give the retired wicketkeeper with the rickety knees a gold star.

If anybody needs me, I'll be in the aforementioned corner writing dark poetry and getting out my yellow voodoo dolls.

Does somebody know Albie's full name?
