Mappilai Team!!!

It was really nice to see the next door Kumarans, Satishs,              Saravanans and many more simple chaps being crowned the winners. 
The superstars win the ICL. A team that I really liked and cheered for. Reasons a ton. The first time the 80% tamilians team ran through batting and bowling of every opponent. The guys were really like "you have seen them some where" types.

Let me introduce the Superstars to you if you have not seen much about them.

The typical heafty guys who can be seen in and around the beaches of chennai.... Nice bowlers. Tamed much of the opponents easily.

 The "Karunas in Nandha" type of thiruttu Muzhi pasanga. V Saravanan had good opportunities to rip thru the opponents bowling. G Vignesh did much of his bowling talk. He is a bowler who has the typical "curd rice" bowling action.
The coach whom i respected and admired a lot as a player. He is M Beaven the OZ player who had a high standard of batting , bowling and fielding. He was one of the few batsmen who had a above 50 average in one dayers.

Nice way to have started the first ICL tournament. I personally feel that this tourney was a huge success for the amount of media attention it received. Every inch of the program was neatly planned and executed. Huge casts, singers lined up, bands performing made the interval time easy to pass. On the whole I like the matches and wish our mappilai team a huge success.

P.S :
1. This mappilai team won 3 crores + nearly 2.5 lakhs for each match won (totally won nearly 8 matches).
2. We too have a "Saroja Samanikalooo" song just like the "Chak De" song for the rest of the nation.
