IPL 2012: Pune Warriors vs. Somebody Else: Live!

Posted on April 8, 2012 by in T20

 

A lot of people think that the IPL is already perfect. We disagree ever so slightly. After all, where’s the cynicism that underpins modern society? There’s nothing that can’t be improved by having a bunch of clever dicks making sarcastic comments from the back of the room. And so, dear reader, we’re going to live blog our way through the second Pune game.

Why Pune? Several reasons (which we talked about in our article here) but the gist of it is that we’re here for this fella:

Our glorious leader (although some old guy gets to wear the armband for some reason).

And this chap:

Our glorious drinks carrier.

Hopefully we’ll find some interesting things to say about the game, (which you can probably watch on YouTube here). Or we might spend an hour or two talking about the County game, Atomic Kitten and $500 (plus p&p)  lithographs. Who knows?

If you’d like to be a part of the discussion just head back here for the start of play (3:30pm UK time) and hopefully a bunch of words will appear below. Don’t forget you can contribute via the comments box below, via email or via Twitter.

I presume Smith get his pick of the cheerleaders after the game as part of his contract

Concrete in Ganguly’s boots? Is that one of Smith’s legendary dressing room bants?

How much was Smith in the auction? He must surely be providing the most value for money so far

There’s about 20 minutes left in the football… Smith had better claimed all 9 wickets remaining by then.

I’m predicting figures of 2.4-1-8-8 for Smith

How is Warner in the Aus team ahead of the great white hope Smith? Unbelievable hitting from the Pune heart throb

I presume Pune feel they have enough already by sending in Ferguson before Smith

Wasn’t the timeout once sponsored by Karbonn?

Who would’ve thought that Sourav Ganguly getting out would SLOW DOWN an IPL innings?

Is Mascharenhas trying to look like a pirate or a gypsy with those earrings?

“Everyone”? This place is as crowded as a Wigan football match…

Ryder obviously decided that he’d burn too many calories if he actually stretched to make his ground there. Maybe someone should have put a beer just behind the stumps?
