Pepsi IPL 2014 - According to Manan

The Pepsi IPL 2014 event is going on.  Even the Indian elections cannot overtake the cricket mania which is gripping this nation.

In any case, I'm not much of a cricket aficionado - the cricket expert in my house is an eleven year old boy, aka my son, Manan.  I'm now going to hand this blog over to Manan, to write to his heart's content about the cricket craze.

Take it away, Manan!

IPL gets tougher and tougher every year. My favourite team is the Mumbai Indians, the winners of  last year's IPL event. This year, their best player is not playing. His name is Sachin Ramesh Tendukar, the legendary cricket player known as the Master Blaster.The Mumbai Indians are now struggling while Sachin Tendulkar can only sit in the stands, cheering.The captain of the team is now Rohit Sharma. He is my favourite cricket player.He has already scored two fifties in the tournament. He is the hope for the Mumbai Indians now.I wish they move on to a good position this year.

There have been some exciting matches so far in this tournament. My favourite one was between the Kings X1 Punjab and the Chennai Super Kings. I was cheering for the Chennai Super Kings but Kings X1 Punjab was the stronger side this time.The Man of the Match Award was given to Glenn Maxwell for his unbelievable knock of 95 runs of just 43 Deliveries.

Apart from Rohit Sharma, the other great name is Kieron Pollard. He is an all rounder. I like his batting. His highest score in IPL is 78 off just 48 deliveries which was a fantastic knock. The Mumbai Indians lost the game. I enjoyed the suspense a lot.

We had some great matches so far. Hopefully there will be many more as the tournament goes on.

This is great, Manan.  Thanks very much for contributing to my blog, Manan

  1. Manan, I root for Mumbai Indians too because due to politics, the Pune team had to be disbanded. I am willing to bet that the final will be between MI and the CSK. The outcome, I will bet on closer to the final.

    Thanks for the comment.

  3. That is a wonderful start Manan. I am glad you have your mother to guide you into this wonderful realm of reading and writing, thereby learning for eternity. Chachi, its great that you got him to write. You are wonderful. Take care both of you. I love you all. :D I also follow IPL, but I particularly do not support any team. That is because one day I wish to own my very own team and I am going to name it "Lucknow Nawabs" :D

Many years ago, when I lived in Dublin, I met someone nice and started dating. I wasn't serious, I just thought we could have nice interesting discussions about India, which I found absolutely fascinating, as I was working in the Embassy of India back then. I had no intention of getting attached with a foreigner, with all the attendant cultural problems. I was happy living in Ireland and the idea of marriage couldn't have been further from my mind. We both thought we could just keep things in control. One day, after a lot of emotional turmoil and denial, it hit us both that we were in love. Truly. Madly. Irrevocably. To the point where we couldn't live without each other. I'd known about the Indian system of arranged marriages and when it occurred to me that he would probably be married off by his family as soon as he returned to India, I felt physically ill at the thought. We are both tenacious and patient people. We realised that bringing our two worlds together

A Blogging Guru

This is what a guru looks like - well something like it! Back to blogging I'm back at my blogging again. Three blogs at the moment. Not bad really, is it? My favourite blogging adventure was my original expat blog, which, unfortunately, I had to close once I was no longer able to blog anonymously. Because it was what some of our US based friends might call 'way TMI.  This is my general blog, MBB is my book blog and My East/West Life is my current attempt at blogging about life in India for an Irish wife. Then there's the experimental writing blog on Wordpress....and you know, can you believe I've been blogging for ten years now? Yes, that's right. But I've taken a looooong hiatus from blogging recently owing to the loss of a beloved family member. And I've stood back from the blogging a little. And then I came back. And amazingly, I've discovered stuff I never knew before. New discoveries I discovered that owing to Adsense ads, I've

The Tale of One Kitty

The cat..... Those who know me already might say that they didn't know I had a cat.  I didn't, you know! Our dog, Duggu is such a handful, I didn't think we could take on another pet. But a few months ago, a beautiful cat (whom we eventually named Puggle)  arrived. She's not really ours..... Nope! She's someone else's cat who just went on what the Aussies might call a walkabout. My younger daughter Riya found her on the roof of our house, a pretty calico (three-coloured) cat. Riya was instantly smitten. Some milk was fed to the little creature and the deal was sealed. Puggle has been a regular visitor to our house ever since. And two days after she arrived, in mid-May, she gave birth to four kittens. We'd had no idea the kitty was enceinte. So what did we do? What can you do? If a single mom landed on your doorstep and gave birth in your house, what would you do? Try to help, obviously. As the cat bore no identification and had been roaming the colony unst
