Which ones are Deccan Chargers? This is the problem we’re having with the IPL. The teams have no real identities. It’s impossible to remember who’s who.
Here’s what we can easily remember:
- We support Kings XI Punjab.
- Kolkata Knight Riders is Ganguly’s team, because Ganguly is The Prince of Calcutta and Calcutta is Kolkata.
- Sachin Tendulkar plays for Mumbai.
That’s pretty much it. We do know more, but we have to think and you all know how we feel about that kind of exertion.
Turns out Adam Gilchrist, Shahid Afridi and Andrew Symonds play for Deccan Chargers. You’d think we’d be able to hold that information in our head – and we sort of did.
We just allied those names to an entirely different team.
