IPL and I

I am a little confused about which team to cheer for during IPL matches. So, I will go by elimination than selection.

I like Preity Zinta. So, I would cheer for Kings XI Punjab.

Since teams are a melange of players from various countries, players themselves do not motivate me to cheer. I do not have favorite players either. So, cheering a team based on players is hard.

I like SRK too. So, I would cheer for Kolkata Knight Riders.

When the above teams played, who would I cheer for. Not sure. Guess, would leave it to the moment and my heart will pick one.

Royal Challengers and Deccan Chargers - teams that belong to my client groups. Their winning, though very remotely, helps my business. Also, I hail from Hyderabad and currently live in Bangalore. So, I would cheer for them. But when they played against each other, which one? Not sure, again.

That leaves Mumbai Indians, Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Daredevils (DD) and Rajasthan Royals (RR).

Not a Mumbaite, but have lived there and like that city. Nita Ambani, while getting older, seems to be getting cuter.

Lived in Chennai. Many parts of the city that make us hate it; but that city has its own charm and slowly gets into us.

Delhi Daredevils - owned by a probable client group. But, unlikely to be a motivator enough.

Rajasthan Royals - Shilpa Shetty is not among those that I like.

So, by elimination, two teams that I may not be cheering for are RR and DD.

If you notice, I am not talking about cricket, the sport, at all. It is about where I belong or who I like that makes cricket interesting for me.

PS: For the first time, went to a stadium to watch a cricket match. Should confess, I liked it. Cricket looks and feels a lot different.
