Name Calling

He was still wondering about a proper name. He would have a loved a name that had some synergy with any one of his various holdings, but he was not sure that would be possible. After all, that name would also have to symbolise what his outfit stood for.
So, keeping in mind the fact that most of the players he had on his side were aged around the total number of overs that would be bowled per contest, and the fact that, for this team winning the tournament woule be a huge challenge, he named his team. Surprisingly it also matched the name of one of his brands. What more could one ask for?
And that, ladies and gentlemen was how the naming ceremony of Bangalore's IPL team was done. Starring Rahul Dravid, AnilKumble, Sunil Joshi, Jacque Kallis etc- Royal Challengers.

until next time, whats in a name? :)

PS. I should have used better words, in case i have to eat them ;)

Dont you think there is too much hype going on about this.. more of media.. than the game.. Sharukh is getting helmets made of gold for his team or whatever... Sigh

Anyway looking forward to the game..

Much ado about nothing.... said...

The next thing we know will be a movie..'U,me and the great Indian IPL tamasha' with a hatke story (sounds familiar?) by Madhur Bhandarkar (ofcourse) on what happens in the Cricket Industry.. ;)
