Once the match was over, we heard fireworks outside, and people did go about in cars and scooters shouting and screaming. But the rejoicing was nothing compared to the time India won against Pakistan....that of course, takes the cake.
I think the idea of IPL is just sinking in, and people have a problem of deciding on their loyalties. But I bet IPL will be a huge success in the future...I personally think the format is a very clever one, and it will work. Once the cricket-loving masses get the hang of it, there will be no looking back. I like the idea of a mixed team...at least it gives everyone a fair chance to win.
And yes, I want to say something to Mandira Bedi and the other snooty male compere (what's his name?) who said nasty things about Deccan Chargers; and to people like Shah Rukh Khan, Preity Zinta and Katrina Kaif who boasted about their teams...
