RCB wailing must have sent bookies laughing to banks

Mon, May 30, 2016, 05:42 PM
Royal Challengers Bangalore team right royally wept on the pitch over the imminent defeat that hovered over them in the Chinnaswamy stadium on Sunday night.

Having to score the impossible 14 runs off the last twso balls, Sachin Baby wept like a baby on the pitch. A.B. DeVilliers wailed off the pitch. Along with him, the RCB fans cried like babies in the stands. Emotional Shane Watson, who would have created a scene, may have broken down off focus. As the last ball was bowled, Watson's eyes were already welling up.

What's so emotional about IPL that makes people weep over a loss? T20 is a game of chance, sometimes you win, sometimes you lose. Sunrisers Hyderabad won because they made the best use of the small Chinnaswamy stadium.

With so much wailing all round, cricket bookies may have made millions, that too when the game was decided at the dead end. The bookies must have laughed all the way to the banks.

Looking back, Sunrisers took the small ground into consideration. Whatever they hit, they hit it hard, knowing the boundaries are smaller as compared to some other pitches. Chris Gayle, too, made good use of the pitch, but in the end, the cumulative effort of the RCB did not add up.
