Why IPL Sucks? Does IPL 3 Deserve the Attention it is Receiving?

[ad#nandini1]

Lalit Modi must surely be one happy man. The 3rd installment of his brainchild has become a phenomenal success. People simply can’t seem to get enough of shortened version of the game.Marketing is on in full swing. But let’s take a closer look – behind the glittering facade. Does IPL really deserve the attention it is receiving? My answer would be a humble “No”.

Why IPL sucks?? This is why :)

1) As any ardent cricket buff would know, IPL questions the very integrity of the original test match. The introduction of ODI’s eroded the viewership of test matches.And it looks like History would certainly repeat itself with the IPL threatening to destroy ODI’s. And whats worse is that cricket has now been reduced to a 3 hour bollywood movie! You even have cheerleaders who provide the bollywood item number effect.

2) Cricket is no longer the Gentleman’s game. In fact it has turned into a an ugly commercial venture with players being auctioned like objects.
Remember the first installment of IPL when Mr.Vijay Mallya publicly lashed out at his team for their poor performance? Pressure from all sides is bound to take a toll on the players. And with just a break of 5 days after the IPL, they are expected to gear up for the upcoming T-20 World cup! Phew!!

3) The talk of recognizing young talents in India through the IPL is just a myth. Why do we have foreign players in an “Indian” Premier League? Really Mr.Modi, why can’t the IPL have only Indian players??
Give a chance to hundreds of youngsters playing gully cricket, who struggle for fame, for recognition. Give the veterans of the Indian Cricket team a well deserved break. The gross injustice done to players of Indian origin is evident from the “price tag” that is fixed on them. An Indian player gets a meagre salary compared to his foreign counterpart, that too in a tournament hosted by India. Isn’t this unfair?

4) The money that is being generated in IPL-3 has been the highest so far! Experts estimate that the tax from this event will cross 500+ crores! When huge amounts of cash are being traded, I feel that the organizers have a social responsibility to fulfill. Why not invest a portion of the money in funding new talents in the game? Why not lend a helping hand to the forgotten sportsmen who had brought laurels to our country?

Gone are the days when cricket used to be a simple bat-n-ball game. Gone are the days when an occasional century from a stalwart was held with awe. The IPL has transformed cricket into an ugly 3 hr extravaganza! And I’m clearly not enjoying this!

Vodafone Zoozoo Ads Aired during IPL Matches.Success or Fail? [REVIEW]

[ad#nandini1]

Come Cricket time and the advertising industry goes crazy. Every brand wants to make its presence felt. And India’s most creative minds get together to effectively market their brand in a little under 30 secs. This year’s IPL is no different. People want to make use of the hype surrounding the IPL to sell everything under the sun.

I personally feel that Vodafone is one such brand that manages to drive in the nail in no time. The cute pug following the little girl & the catchy tune was an instant hit among all TV viewers. So, were the ZooZoos when they first hit the screen last IPL. Tell me if I am wrong in expecting Vodafone to come out with a new series of ads that are high on creativity?

It looks like Vodafone decided to play it safe this IPL by making use of their hugely successful ZooZoo ads. The latest series of the ZooZoo ads neither invoke interest nor laughter from the average Indian viewer. The ads falls below the high standards set by the same series last year.

For example, take the ad with the tagline “Save Trees ” by Zoozoos. The white alien is relaxing in a hammock, sipping some drink when one of the supporting trees is felled. The ZooZoo falls down. End of Ad. So…I got the point. Opt for e-bills and save paper. But this ad lacks the innocence & the instant humor of the previous ads. The ZooZoos don’t appeal anymore. In fact I was nursing a headache after watching the ad for a couple of times.

I was hoping that the sparks that were missing in the previous ad would be back in the other ads. But no, I was wrong! Another ad showing a ZooZoo reading a newspaper and discovering that the one seated beside him is a thief is equally disappointing.

The only saving grace in the recent series is the “Learn a new English Word” ad. This features an alien ZooZoo in the company of other ZooZoos, trying to learn the ZooZoo language.

I know that these are early days to come to a conclusion with a lot more ads in the pipeline. Yet, it has been a disappointing start for Vodafone. Hope that Vodafone brings back its best creative minds to create more innovative ads.

Watch IPL at 2Mbps Speed for Free! Only on Airtel!

[ad#nandini1]

Are you one of the few unlucky people who cant watch IPL on TV? Aah…I’m one of them. And just when i thought that I can catch up with the action on news channels, the tiff between the cricket board & the news channels ruled out that possibility. But thanks to the Airtel folks, I can watch my favorite cricket matches on youtube. Beginning today, Airtel will automatically upgrade the bandwidth of all its customers to 2Mbps, so that people can sit back & enjoy live streaming without any glitches. This perk is available until the end of the IPL season.


Wondering if you have to shell out some extra cash?? No worries! Airtel is offering this upgrade free of cost!! But of course, your data transfer limit will still be governed by your existing plan. So, in case your current plan imposes a download limit, then you might have to pay for the extra data consumed on a per byte basis, which is definitely expensive.

But there is a hitch. The 2MBps is applicable only for live streaming on http://www.youtube.com/IPL. This means that you cannot watch an episode of your favorite soap or a movie at the increased bandwidth. And this offer will be withdrawn after the end of IPL.

I personally feel that this tie-up between Airtel & Youtube is a move in the right direction for both. It marks the beginning of a new era where we can abandon theTV set and depend on our internet connection for everything. This tie-up is also likely to boost the sales of Airtel and also enhance its brand name. Most of the people who have made use of this facility are giving a good feedback about the quality of the video. Also, the bufferring time is considerably less when compared to regular youtube video streaming. Thanks to this unique initiative from Airtel, this is the first time in the history of sports that a cricket match has got extensive viewership.In fact, youtube must be grateful to Airtel for this! :)

So folks, If you are an existing Airtel broadband customer, then its the time for you to rejoice!

Vodafone ZooZoo Ads for IPL 2010 [NEW]

[ad#nandini1]

There are 2 things that TV addicts are waiting for tomorrow. The first one, as you may have rightly guessed is start of the DLF IPL tournament 2010. What about the second?? Well, its the hugely popular Vodafone ZooZoo ads.

The previous IPL season saw the launch of the ZooZoos and it became an instant hit among the old & the young alike. Vodafone hopes to recreate the same magic this time around. In fact people are more anxious to find out how Vodafone is going to present the ZooZoos than finding out who will emerge the champions of the tournament.

But I’m skeptical of how the response to the ZooZoos will be this time. I feel so because during IPL ’09, the ZooZoos came as a complete surprise to all the viewers. The cuteT, rounded creatures instantly appealed to everybody. The popularity of the ZooZoos sky-rocketed when Vodafone revealed that they are in fact humans and not computer generated images. The following months saw a craze for ZooZoo wallpapers, keychains, T-Shirts and other ZooZoo junk.

This time around, the situation has considerably changed. I personally feel that the ZooZoo ads will not be received with the same enthusiasm & vigor as last time unless Vodafone does something drastically different. But friends, Vodafone is known for pulling up surprises! They did with the Hutch dog, and they did with the ZooZoos 1.0 last year :) Lets see if they can pull it off with ZooZoos 2.0!

The ads will be telecasted from March 12th. You can also catch a preview of them on facebook. Make sure that you don’t miss them.

And we @ chaaps would love to hear from you all. So, keep those comments pouring in!

Finally, everyone’s favorite season is here. In-spite of the blistering heat, power-cuts, dry taps and parched skin, people in India have a reason to cheer. The 3rd season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is due to start in less than a week and this time the combat will take place in our very own country. Thousands of cricket crazy fans are ready to welcome the DLF IPL cup back to India.

Sports analysts are left divided over which team is the favorite to lift this year’s trophy. The then underdogs surprised everyone in 2008 by winning the first DLF IPL tournament. Deccan Chargers who had finished at the bottom of the table in ’08, captured the top spot in ’09. So, by the same formula, I think the Kolkata Knight Riders might pull off a surprise win this time.. ;-) Who knows??

The action begins at Hyderabad on March 12th, where Deccan Chargers will play against KKR. The journey will continue through most of the Indian metropolitan cities & end on the 25th of April. The schedule is exhaustive! I would recommend you to take a print – out of the schedule below & paste it in your wardrobe :)

Ticket sales are at a record high and so are the prices. If you hadn’t booked your ticket well in advance – sorry, you will have to wait until next year. Its gonna be 1.5 months of pure, unadulterated cricket! Stay tuned and make the best of this season.

IPL season -3 is here in India!! And the organizers are leaving no stone unturned to promote it. And in case you thought that you can sit at home, chew on your popcorn, drink your cola & enjoy the game, you just missed out on some solid fun.

The latest in the series of IPL ads show two young men dressed up in dolphin costumes attending a cricket match. One of them is complaining to the other that his girlfriend ditched him when he gets a call from her. Sneha, his girlfriend is apparently happy and tells him that he looks adorable in his dolphin costume. And then he realizes that he is on the big screen in the stadium! :) Thank God he decided to watch IPL in the stadium! He managed to patch up with his gf !! And he actually decides to come in a monkey costume the next day inf Sneha makes it too.

IPL promoters seem to have made their point. The best way to enjoy a cricket match is to watch it live, along with the crowd in the stadium. Even though you get a close up view of your fav stars and watch replays ‘n’ number of times on tv, its pure fun to mingle with the crowd, cheer, sway and dance in the stadium. So, if you want to enjoy the full game, rush to get your tickets! :)
