The Battle of the Bolly Babes

The Kings from Punjab have been on an amazing run of late winning their last 4 matches.

Preity Zinta can't stop smiling and the Kings XI can't stop winning. Its the Preity hugs I tell you.

Tonight they go up against the Royal Challengers from Bangalore, who rode their luck in a narrow victory over the Deccan Chargers recently.

With Katrina Kaif cheering their victory the way she was the other night, RCB would be definitely charged up! Even though she didn't hug anyone after that victory, the motivation of watching Katrina cheer them on should do the Challengers a lot of good. Or is Salman Khan watching?

On paper it looks like the Kings should win easily but stranger things have happened in the IPL.

With Misbah finally in the ranks and Cameron White being looked at as a potential replacement for Kallis, RCB may finally have a team looks like one for 20-20 cricket.

I sense an upset. I sense a Katrina victory over Preity. I also want a Katrina victory over Preity.

Apart from this Bolly Battle, there's plenty more to watch out for tonight.

Battle of the Indians: Irfan Pathan, Sreesanth, and VRV Singh will be up against Wasim Jaffer and Rahul Dravid. While Zaheer Khan and Praveen Kumar will have a go at Yuvraj Singh.

Battle of the Leggies: It will be India's experienced Anil Kumble up against the one tipped to replace him in the long term -Piyush Chawla. Throw Cameron White into the mix as well.

Battle of the Stumpers: Its the best keeper batsman Kumar Sangakkara up against the best stumper in the business - Mark Boucher.

Also watch out for Shaun Marsh who has thoroughly impressed in his last 2 innings. He has been joined by fellow Aussie James Hopes at the top of the order and fireworks could be in store. Watch them take on Dale Steyn, the fastest pacer around.

All this and more at 230PM GMT tonight.

    Who cares? It's about cricket anyway. Watching Sanjay Bangar play cricket (while I'm tuned into a cricket match) is better than watching Katrina or Preity (or the Bangalore cheerleaders) jump up and down in the stands.

    Can't believe I said that.

  5. Q said...

    I cant believe it either ARJWIZ!
