Vocabulary enhancement of the day: the number formerly known as six

Submitted by rickeyre on April 18, 2009 - 10:19pm

It's no longer a six. It's a DLF Maximum. And we had to wait until the eighteenth over of the Mumbai innings for the first DLF Maximum of the 2009 Not-so-IPL, tonked by Abishek Nayar off Andrew Flintoff.

Not content with that, Nayar clubbed another two DLF Maximums (or is that DLF Maxima?) off Flintoff later that over.

And if that's not enough, Mark Bloody Nicholas was the commentator.

The Not-so-IPL's first toilet break

Submitted by rickeyre on April 18, 2009 - 9:37pm

Ten overs down in this funereally slow game of Indian domestic cricket being played in Cape Town. The Cleveland Mumbai Indians are 64 for 1 against the Chennai Sub Super Kings. And now we have the 7.5 minute toilet break... the Modi Mafia call it a "tactical time out", but it's really just an excuse to squeeze an extra five minutes of ads into each innings. Here in Australia it means more prattle from Huddo and Campbo on One Digital (part of the soon-to-go-bankrupt Channel Ten empire).
