Beautiful Saturday @ Blue Lagoon – ECR

20-Oct-07, Saturday – one of the best day, away from the work pressure….me, my team mates (few ex. :) too) we all went to one my favorite place in ECR – Blue Lagoon Resort.

We used to book and play in the normal cricket ground, but we have never been inside the resort. This was the first time we went in.

The day started beautifully, in fact we had some doubt whether we can make it due to some drizzle and threat of a rain. But by the time we reached there, it was sunny and a OK weather to play cricket.

List if participants

1. Kishore, our captain
2. Srinivasan, Coach cum manager
3. Mahesh, right arm off-spin fast
4. Uday, uthappa?
5. Mohan, right arm wide
6. Rajaprabhu, all-in-all alagu
7. Murugesh, B.Lee Ji
8. Arul (pro series)
9. Arjun, sixer arjun
10. Angu, singles Angu
11. Srini, Jr. sreesanth minus actions
12. Vasanth, open to end bat, don’t ask score
13. Suresh, inzamam..still playing?
14. Geetha, our only spectator…but we have paid her he he
15. and ME

We played 3 matches, 2 before lunch and 1 after lunch.

By lunch, the score was 1-1. But after lunch our team was affected by the menu, so we lost the series by 1:2.

Speaking after the series, Kishore said, his team would bounce back in the coming Aus series, his team lacks only in bowling, fielding and betting which can happen to any team!

After receiving the trophy, Srini said, there was a discussion about me…going to resign and join the rebel team, but our boys held the stomach!!! and hit sixes, which made the difference at end of day.

Man of the match in the final, Mohan said, he always hit sixes and esply after lunch when the ball is swinging…
In fact one of the sixes, the ball in yet to come, Air Force and Coast guard has been alerted !

Man of the series Mahesh said. “I used to get man of the series for bowling fast, but this is the first time I am getting it for batting, I had few problems with kishore in RHM and I took the revenge on the field !”.

In front of the huge crowd :)…suresh wanted to prove himself, but uthappa spoiled it by throwing to the striker end and arjun by mistake dragged the ball on to the stumps…..a close call, but what to do when TV replays shows he was short !!!

Another important moment came when Rajaprabhu went in and srini was bowling, the first ball…full toss went for a straight six. But for some reason Rajaprabhu went to srini and said thanks. Investigations are still on, decision will be announced in next ICC meet at London. But the crowd was saying “problems within the family…what to do”.

2 best catches were awarded, Arjun and Angu – both as wkt keepers. but TV reply shows their eys were closed while catching…even when the ball was in their hand, they were searching the ball near them….confusing?!, another ball?

Most importantly, Lunch was too good…

Then… by evening, we all went to beach and enjoyed.

Few photos follow…this post.
