IPL season 3 : Back in India!


Its that time of the year again! When homework assignments, exam preparations, office reports, television soaps, family discussions take a backseat. Offices, classrooms, malls, streets, markets are deserted in the evenings as their occupants glue themselves to the nearest television around. IPL is back in India with a BANG!  

     In India, every season of IPL is celebrated like a 45-day long festival. People pick their favorite teams for cheering them for championship and form their own cricket-team clubs. Mobile phones keep buzzing around with latest score updates. News channels keep rattling on and on about latest happenings and controversies associated with the mega-event. To gain some of the TRPs lost to the IPL, some channels start a new segment related to discussion (which leads to debate and eventually turns into a fight) focused on which team will win the title.
Cricket fever soars over and housing societies and communities start hosting similar t-20 events—their own version of IPL- for kids. Fancy names are given to the teams and the tournaments are played and enjoyed by everyone.
To many of the IPL lovers dismay, last year the event was hosted outside India due to general elections taking place at that time. But this time, IPL will be hosted India.

The much hyped event will kickoff from 12 April 2010. First match of the season will be played between Deccan chargers and kolkata knight riders.

It’s back! The excitement, the euphoria, the glamour, controversies everything is BACK!
