    Top 2 TVC’s during ICC CWC,2011 

    The recently concluded ICC Cricket World Cup saw a plethora of new advertisements, price of the air time sky rocketed. Overall viewership ratings hit all time high. The numbers were staggering, a record 65 million watched in Television and several tens of millions were glued to good old radio [ There’s no electricity so, they had to resort to the primitive methods ]. Going back to the TVC’s, here are two of my favorites commercials which I enjoyed as much as the tournament itself. I’m sure most of us loved them.

    1. Nike – Bleed Blue: Nike are the official kit sponsors for Team India, they hit the right note with this sensible yet awe inspiring piece.

     

    2. Vodafone – 3G services: Vodafone guys rock big time. This time it was the launch of their third generation mobile services, first they gave us this fantastic Ad and later followed it up with 40 days of FREE 3G services, hats off to Vodafone.

            Pug was extensively used during the HUTCH days, once Vodafone took over, they phased out the pup…Sad 😦

    India dethrones Australia 

    Today was a historic day in world Cricket, Australia’s domination over Cricket has finally ended after 12 years. And, it was India who thumped the Australians in an electrifying contest. It can’t get better than this for Indian team and fans, this was an extremely important game for us simply because this takes us one step close to eternal glory. Over the last 2 years Australia has steadily lost its magnanimous Aura and were slowly fading away, todays knock out punch confirms the demise of one of greatest teams in world cricket. Also, it brings a possible end to two of the greatest cricketers of all time – Ricky Ponting and Brett Lee.

    Ricky produced one of his most docile centuries, it was something he struggled to earn. His team mates were hardly doing anything special with the bat, it was left to the great man to play his heart out, he did but it wasn’t his day. And end of the day, this was his last innings at a world stage and I dare say this could be the end of the road of his ODI career.

    Lee on the other hand left with a bleeding eyebrow I’m sure that would hurt him all through his life time. He along with McGrath and Warne took Aussie to the No.1 position and today he saw was at the other end of the spectrum. He bowling was ineffective, in fact it was in his over that the game swung towards India. Lethal Lee is famished, he’s clearly past his prime. The final boundary of his ball decimated the mercurial bowler. Sun has set for Lee.

    Back to the victors, India. We almost messed it up with 75+ runs required and the last specialist pair on strike, it seemed we were doomed. But, Yuvraj who infact isn’t batting at his full prowess along with Raina pulled of a fantastic chase with ridiculous ease, plundering Lee and Tait effortlessly. India deserved to win this game not because Australia were playing badly, moreso because India has the side to beat the world champions.

    The win not only takes India to semis it  also sets up mother of all games, India v/s Pakistan. However, for now, Indian fans will rejoice this historic victory. I like millions of other fans is in total awe of this sport, Hats off to Cricket.

      Great match. The run-out scares were a bit worrying. Total confusion between the wickets could have been a disaster. Yuvraj and Raina were excellent when they settled down. Controlled batting to win with balls and wickets to spare. Well done.

        Totally agree, Al…Best of luck for England’s game tomorrow,hope they make it to the next level.

      Ricky Pointing has been part of 4 world-cup finals and has won three of them… Clive Lloyd has been part of three world cup finals and has won two… India started the great West Indian decline by winning the trophy in 1983, Will the Australian follow suit?

        Aren’t they down already…even they ranking low in the ICC list..with Ponting n Lee set to bite the dust..I guess they wud slip further

    It’s a Tie 

    Just the other evening I had resolved not to talk or write about Cricket in this space, atleast till the World Cup concludes. However, after close to 24 hours, I cannot resist anymore. Cricket is my life 🙂  . There’s no way I can keep away from writing about it.  So, here’s me, reflecting on yesterday’s India-England epic.

    I quickly made this video. I sound so foolish, all I have managed to do is blabber stuff at random 😀 [ hate listening to myself, next time I should avoid playing it ]. So, watch it…oops you can’t because I refrained from showing up my “good looking” face this time around, didn’t want to scare you so, I let my voice do the job, which again happens to be atrociously quirky. Listen to this piece of hmmm…
