Life after IPL
(Sunil Das, by email) / 22 May 2012
In another few days the IPL will be over and thousands of fans will go into withdrawal symptoms. These will be short-tempered behaviour, listlessness, a sense of loss and impatience.
After six weeks of being indoctrinated to spending the evening watching the game its sudden stoppage is going be tough to absorb. We have lost the art of conversation, we have hardly socialised these past few weeks and almost forgotten other family members. It is come back from work, leave me alone now I am watching the match and that is all. The scandals, of course, have added a little more zing to the proceedings and Luke and Shah Rukh and those guys on the take have added to the fun with their silly antics. IPL Six next year will be even bigger because it is only in India that every match can be houseful regardless of the cost of a ticket. In other countries they would have gone into cricket fatigue by the second week.
