IPL Nomenclature

Gideon Haigh has a rant on Cricinfo about Citi Moments of Success and DLF Maximums. (via Udups on Twitter).

Rather than just complain I think we as viewers should empower ourselves by giving our own names to boundaries. I propose the following names for fours and sixes for each of the teams:

  • A four hit by the Daredevils will be called a Rashtrapati Bhavan and a six will be called Chandni Chowk
  • For the Mumbai Indians, Girgaon and Malabar Hill
  • Royal Challengers: Basavangudi and JC Nagar
  • Super Kings: Luz Church Road and Cathedral
  • Chargers: Khairatabad and Karuwansahu
  • Knight Riders: Shyambazar and Beadon Street
  • Royals: Arjunlal Sethi Nagar and Bani Park
  • Tragically, the Kings XI do not have any special names under this nomenclature system

Admittedly, “What a magnificent Luz Church Road by Hayden” is a bit of a mouthful, and Chandni Chowk can be confused with chauka, but I think this is a small price to pay for sticking it to Lalit Modi (who incidentally has started reminding me of Cut-Me-Own-Throat Dibbler).

(In case you didn’t get it – pssst.)

  1. Nishit says:

    Whatever happened to Delhi-6?

  2. PGK says:

    I second Nishit. Dilli-6 it must be.

    And..Basvangudi? Seriously?

  3. Atulya says:

    I can’t believe you actually went through the trouble of finding out what area in each city has a PIN code of ..4 or ..6
    Then again, why wouldn’t Chandigarh have a ..4 or ..6 place ?

  4. Hari says:

    Cut-Me-Own-Throat… Priceless. You come to the rescue just when I begin the fear the man is beyond parody.

  5. Hari says:

    ah, “to fear”

  6. PGK says:

    Oh. My. God.

    Respect, Khanna. Respect.

  7. Shruti says:

    CMOT Dibbler. 😀 Temporal resonances of the man shall be found everywhere.

  8. Er, for Chennai it would actually be Mylapore and Thousandlights. “There’s another big thousandlights from Hayden”.
