Indian Premier League

The IPL is now a comic strip

Considering the IPL has a team dressed in purple and orange, and cheerleaders wearing saris, it’s pretty amazing no one has thought of turning the whole hoopla into a comic strip before. Chennai Super Kings have finally clued in and have launched ‘Chennai Super Komics’, based on their team and players, available in stores in India for Rs 40 a copy. The books are aimed at fans under the age of 10 according to their head of marketing Rakesh Singh. In the inaugural edition, Lion of Chepauk, Dhoni rescues a street puppy that goes on to become the team’s lucky mascot.
