    IPL - battle for the wooden spoon

    SO who is going to get the wooden spoon, i.e. finish at the bottom, in the IPL?

    the prime contenders for the wooden spoon are Hybad Deccan Chargers and Banglore Royal Challengers

    Ofc both the teams would want to stay away from getting the wooden spoon .... their battle royale is on May 25th in Hybad, which they would want to win

    Chargers are yet to win a game at home, so will they be able to knock off the Challengers at home? Or will the Challengers pick their game and stay clear of the wooden spoon?

    I think Mallya deserves the wooden spoon, not his team. This moron is the main cause for poor morale in his team.

    I can't understand how idiots like him cause low morale and then ask justifications for how the team is not doing well?

    I worked for his father till he died and then for him for a year and a half so I know him pretty well. I also attended his wedding party at the Western India Turf Club. I am not surprised one bit by how he has conducted himself. This is Vijay Mallya for you. He is no different in running his companies. Sycophants are the only people who survive with him.

    Ah, it all makes sense. Bangalore have been discussed ad nauseum, but at the end of the day even Deccan aren't a bad team at all, Gilchrist, Afridi, Symonds (at the beginning), Sharma and quite a few other good players. Many were saying they'd be certain semi-finalists pre-season. Things haven't really gone their way, but next year I'd fully expect them to turn things around, given there aren't any inherent problems in the side we don't know about.

    Seems both my teams are out of it. Bangalore most definitely, but the state of my birth Delhi is in with some chance of making the semi's. Bangalore seems to deserve the wooden spoon a little more than Deccan though mainly because of the antics of their management.

    111 million dollars worth of wooden spoon is pretty much to swallow

    No, only asked the woman I was interested in if she was interested in me and married her a year later.

    Mallya is 50 plus, married and has 3 kids(I think) and supposedly a respectable Indian businessman. It does not behoove him to publicly chase women IMO. You wont see a Ratan Tata or a Narayan Murthy ever behave like this idiot.

    B'lore probably deserve the wooden spoon, so I voted for it

    Both these teams have been exposed due to inadequacy or lack of depth in one department, while B'lore looks short on quality T20 batting, Hy'bad looks short on quality T20 bowling

    Ironically, B'lore's bowling and Hybad's batting, the key strengths of both the sides haven't measured up as well

    Good luck to both these teams for next year

    Bangalore.. their whole team is missed up.. i mean common selecting players like kallis and dravid for 20/20 game.. they barely fit the one day arena.

    I haven't been following the IPL. That's why I have chose alot of irrelevant options.
