MI Won a Tough Match over KKR

Written by on in Cricket, Kolkata, Mumbai

As I’ve noted earlier, it’s quite a dilemma for me: I love both of India’s biggest cities, so naturally my allegiance was divided.

Kolkata Knight Riders (with a Sharukh Khan/Juhi Chawla pedigree) has a special place in my heart. I think of it like Heroes of my Hometown.

Mumbai Indians (with the other obvious film industry tie-in: Bollywood) is the local IPL cricket club where I now reside. I think of it like Heroes of my Hometown.

Sorry, that was a failed attempt at tongue-in-cheek humour.

Without slighting either club’s sponsoring city, an intolerable traffic jam looks about the same in the western part of Mother India as the eastern part. Right, the tuk-tuks look a bit different in colour, lol.

Who could choose between between them (or between football and cricket—a great contest is exciting in either sport)? It was exciting play throughout the match! Congratulations, Mumbai Indians on the victory! Rohit Sharma, you played superbly as well.

Just as fans go wild for Pritam and his amazing music, cricket and football teams also inspire fierce loyalty. I get that. I also feel as if both teams won (and we knew I’d opt for a diplomatic view, lol; I’ve had good teachers). We’re ALL WINNERS here. I won’t have it any other way.
