Gabriella Pasqualotto’ s blog has raised a storm in IPL


Gabriella Pasqualotto, the 22-year-old cheerleader who’s raised a storm with her explosive blog on the players and just what goes on behind the scenes at the Indian Premier League (IPL), was sent home last week for her critique. We at in.com bring you the bouncers and doosras she delivered in her piece.

On after-parties & VIP rooms: “The music pumps, the drinks flow and the cricketers come and go… But the real fun happens in the VIP rooms where the players and night owls can cause scandal!”

Our take: We’re hardly surprised. Even though last year’s party organisers, Mehr Jessia and Arjun Rampal, distanced themselves from the league after Lalit Modi’s exit, the plug was certainly not going to be pulled on a little after-hours ‘entertainment’ for the cricketers.

On MS Dhoni & Rohit Sharma: “Have been very polite and keep to themselves in the dark corners.”

Our take: It’s not surprising that newlywed Dhoni is keeping a safe distance, especially with his wife Sakshi travelling with him during the tournament. However, Rohit Sharma’s good-boy-act comes as a pleasant revelation given that he had raked up the reputation of drowning his sorrows over his poor form quite publicly at the IPL parties. Looks like Sharma’s claims of putting the past behind and working on his game rather than his beer belly are not just lip service. Kudos!

On Sachin Tendulkar: “Hotshots like Tendulkar with families at home are never present”

Our take: Duh. Why do you think we call him God?

On Jonty Rhodes & Albie Morkel: “Are notorious for having a good time with friends!”

Our take: While Jonty’s 15-year marriage to his wife Kate went kaput last year, it seems that Albie Morkel’s wife and childhood sweetheart Marthmari isn’t going to be very happy at reports of her hubby’s antics. Tsk, tsk.

On Graeme Smith: “Will flirt with anything while his girlfriend lurks behind him.”

Our take: No-brainer this. Graeme Smith changes girlfriends as quickly as he does sweaty jerseys, though we wonder why his current beau hasn’t kept a tighter leash on him. Though you know what they say about old dogs and new tricks, don’t you?

On Aiden Blizzard & Dan Christian: “The Aussies are fun but naughty”

Our take: Newbies Aiden Blizzard and Dan Christian must be taking a leaf or two out from Shane Warne’s book. They are in the spotlight and seem to be enjoying the attention of several pretty ladies. A little healthy flirting is fun, though let’s hope their performances don’t take a beating for it

On other players: “By the end of a crazy evening, a certain someone had played kissing catchers with three girls known to me only, although he has his own girlfriend back home. He cooed to each girl, ‘Come home with me, I just want to cuddle!'”

Our take: That cricketers have raging libidos, is hardly news. A while ago, the coaching staff of the Indian team was also advising the Boys in Blue to have more sex to keep their gameplay just as frisky.

On the Indian audiences: “We are practically like walking porn! The women double take, see you and then pretend you do not exist. The men see your face, then your boobs, your butt, and then your boobs again!”

Our take: Chalk another one up for desi repressed and puritanical sensibilities. Welcome to India where item numbers are part of nearly every Bollywood movie, but skin show in the flesh is frowned upon.

2nd Test: India beat SA to level series, retain No.1 spot


NEW DELHI: India beat South Africa by an innings and 58 runs in the second Test to level the 2-match series and retain their number one Test ranking at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. 

Amla, who made 114 in the first innings, remained unbeaten on 127 runs but could not deny India a victory on Thursday. 

Earlier at tea, off-spinner Harbhajan Singh took three wickets in a sensational 13-over spell, with eight maidens and conceding just nine runs, to leave South Africa struggling at 250/7. 

Harbhajan dismissed overnight batsman Ashwell Prince for 23, JP Duminy for six and Dale Steyn for one in a spell that destroyed South Africa’s middle-order after the tourists resumed on 115/3. 

Leg-spinner Amit Mishra took his third wicket of the innings when he had AB de Villiers lbw for three just before lunch. 

Indian spearhead Zaheer Khan did not take the field in the morning after straining his quadricep on the fourth day when only 34.1 overs had been possible due to rain and bad light. 

The overnight pair of Amla and Prince stuck out 26.4 overs before Harbhajan struck when the off-spinner had Prince playing loosely to be caught at mid-off. 

Mishra had de Villiers leg before with a googly and Harbhajan fired out left-hander Duminy and Steyn leg before in quick succession after lunch.
