We're havin the last laugh after all!

Ha ha. So much for Mumbai Indians being favorites. Chennai showed the entire crowd who the "real super kings" of IPL 3 were on Sunday at the DY Patil stadium! Dhoni showed the nation why he is aptly termed "Captain Cool". His bowling changes and fielding placements were mindblowing. Suresh Raina proved once again why he is Mr. Dependable! He was amazing - he scored 57 from just 23 balls, took one wicket and took a superb running catch.. ok. I dont know why I'm beginning to sound like the Times of India sports column here.. BUT.. let me say this.. We were so awesome, congrats CSK! You made us proud :))
I just realized.. What am I gonna do now with my evenings? No more IPL! :(

MSD, Tussi Great Ho :)

Just watch this clipping(Courtsey: You Tube), imagine a room full of CSK supporters, all having their fingers crossed, hoping for a miracle to happen... :) The bestest part of it was that we actually won!! All thanks to our superstar captain.. Dhoni :) He kept his cool, played the shots when he had to and fired two bigg sixes off the very last over.. A zillion thanks to Irfan Pathan for bowling those loose deliveries.. But the way, MSD was smashing, even the best bowler in the world wouldn't have been able to make a difference :)) The title of this post says it all.. Love you Dhoni and team.. Hoping for an awesome victory against the Chargers and what better day to play it than the 22nd April.. :)))) My fam's already made big plans to get together, with drinks and dinner to cheer on our home team.. Praying for them.. As I write this post, I just wonder...
What on earth would I be doing without cricket, IPL, CSK and team Dhoni? =)

CSK.. CSK.. CSK!!!!

 I watched the Chennai Super Kings live in action at Chepauk two nights back and it was just KICK ASS! I'm so glad I chose to go and I had the time of my life!! I've always loved cricket and I have always loved watching live action in the stadium! This time around, I was not even sure if I was going to enjoy it. But I was soooo wrong! First off, I had to shop at 6 different stores to find a yellow top(ya ya.. I wished they had a better team color) and I hate yellow! But I finally managed to lay my hands on one.. and then of course on our way to the stadium we had to stop and get flags to wave, whistles to blow and all that blah.. Bangalore had decided to bat first and they lost a wicket in the very first over, just 10 minutes after we settled into our seats. From then on, there was no sitting down! There was jazzy Tamil "kuthu" songs being played in the highest decibel, Sivamani's drum beats and not to mention all the noise we created! Our team was desperate for a win.. A loss meant the end of IPL 3 for them! So they needed all the support from the home ground and boy, we were LOUD! Especially when we had to bat.. Our opener Murali Vijay was mindblowing.. He hit six 6's and was super quick!! We loved his innings.. and he certainly had the entire crowd rooting him, with him being local boy and everything!! And of course, in typical CSK fashion, they took the match to the very last over and needed some 10 runs off the last 6 balls and we all thought it was going to be impossible. But all thanks to our darling Raina! He smashed a 6 off the last ball in the penultimate over and it was a no-ball, which meant a FREE HIT!!! WOHOO!!! The crowd went beserk! I dont really remember, but I think at this point, I was standing ON my chair and jumping! And of course we won in the last over, with 4 balls to spare!! Thats CSK for you.... in your face! =) I've not felt this good in a long, long time and again, I'm just glad I chose to go for the match.. Can't wait to do this again! Pics in Shan's phone.. Will follow shortly!! Happy April, my favorite month is here!!!!!! =)
