Real IPL Player: Spin, Gandhi and IPL

by Som

Back on my feet after eight never-ending hours in a flight from Dubai, I sort of shiverred the moment I land in Jo’burg. I reckon it’s IPL fever and since I know the medicine, there is nothing to worry.

Sam drives us from airport, warning time and again that flashing money in South Africa can be fatal. I certainly was not amused at his dig at Lalit Modi.

“Do visit the Gandhi museum also, since you came from India,” he advises.

I was startled, actually never felt Devang Gandhi did anything to merit a museum!

It dawned me minutes later that Sam was talking not about the opener but of the spinner of charkha.

Cabbies have been shouldering the traditional responsibility of being a stranger’s friend, philosopher and guide in an alien city and expect Sam to pop up time in Real IPL Players’ journey.

Devang Gandhi has been dug out of the recesses of my mind. What next a Gaekwad museum? And as both were openers, their museums will never close.

And yeah, my mind drifted to Sam the blogger. He sure has a lotta drive

Sam: Trust me, even I didn't know!

Fake, hair..I mean here I come!

SP: Pray for me.

Anyone: Lol here too.

IHFIP: I love I Hate FIP:)
