    Are the answers coming up shortly? Must say I am a bit curious about some of the questions. Also I realized even though I have been in touch with DLF since couple of years now for various reasons, I still don't know their full form. Shame on me.

  2. Gaurav Sethi said...

    even funnier than the real thing.

    "Why do the commentators at the dug outs make it look like they are doing something suspicious?"

    this i like here, not on tv tho.

    McKenzie, often thought abt that.

  3. Leg Break said...

    Another question.

    When will it end?

  4. Q said...

    Rayden: I thought those were questions on everyones mind - everyones answers though may be different.. apart from the factual ones such as DLF = Delhi Leasing & Finance.

  5. Q said...

    NC: have u noticed the hushed tones of the commentators when they're called on to report from the dug outs?

  6. Q said...

    LB: This season or the whole league itself?

  7. Amy said...

    When they're at the dug outs, each of them makes an effort to speak in a low voice and then perform the criminal act of stepping over the boundary and feeling the moisture on the ground with the obligatory, "Just quickly... I hope nobody sees me." No fucker, you're on live camera. Everyone can see you.

    Why does Modi flip the coin in some matches?

    Who selects the Miss Bollywood IPL 2009?

    Both I guess, but in particular this tournament. It just seems to merge into some glitzy blur.
