I don't know why but for some reason I cannot take the IPL seriously. It just seems like a big budget TV series to me. I mean, think of the variety of characters that the IPL has. It has the once upon a time legends, now retired and have taken up something more civil. Kinda like Capt. Roy Montgomery from Castle whose part is being played by Shoaib Akthar. Then it has the good looking protagonists like Virat Kohli and Glenn Maxwell who pull off an Ian Somerhalder every now and then. For humour IPL has the comedians whose sense of humour is refreshing, something like the Pritchetts from Modern Family. Danny Morrison and gang do good justice to the roles they were offered. That being said, we also have to put up with Sidhu and his creepy one liners. There should be an auction for the hosts of Extraa Innings as well. That way there is at least a possibility that we may not have to hear Sidhu babble about cabbages and ostriches.
