IPL 2012 :: Bhajji shows natural leadership ability

The Mumbai Indians vs. Deccan Chargers match was otherwise as boring as cricket is these days. However, thanks to the leadership qualities shown by Bhajji in taking on the umpires and openly forcing them to go to the third umpire we had some entertainment. Though, he will be criticised by the sycophantic people who consider rules and laws to be sancrosanct and much above plain logic, he has done something to show what Indian-ness and Youth is all about these days - fearless, standing up for what is right and showing the people who follow and watch him that right does win.

It may, ofcourse, invite punishment. In fact, it obviously would considering the number of egos that would have been hurt.

On a serious note, IPL till date has been pathetically boring. And if this 'Sangakarra bowled but not given out in first go' incident had not occurred during dinner time I would have missed the entire fun. Wonder, if this incident is the result of ideas that organisers and other stakeholders have got to pull crowds or this incident will give ideas to these people.
