Yeah .. good one Satish... speaks true mindset of the losing team.. The IPL started off nicely with good pitches and low scoring games.. but now almost all matches are played in short boundaries and flat roads... its getting too boring when the element of competitiveness is killed by six-hitting-at-will-pitches.. some of the pitches in Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai are just too damn irritating when a simple defense stroke gets a boundary...

Because some of the teams are not performing up to the standard....we are seeing so many one sided (boring) matches. Anyway good work Satish...Keep it up!!!

Hi Satish, normally you are very good with attention to details...however, the flag strips are in wrong order here on PUNE t-shirt. From behind, it would be green on top and orange in bottom. Good sense of humor though!!
