IPL franchisee more thicker than blood!!!

The IPL is a funny little thing happening out there. Family ties and loyalty towards nation are all forgotten in a two month quest for glory!!!
Mitchell Marsh dismisses brother Shaun, caught by Yuvraj Singh and celebrates it with Steve Smith, Luke Wright, Angelo Mathews and the rest of the Pune Warriors squad.
Well there you have it. Brother dismisses brother and celebrates with an Australian, Englishman, Sri Lankan and the rest belonging to a certain tribe called Indians.
Same way, Irfan Pathan would be caught by a stunning effort from Yusuf and the celebrations would be between Ryan ten Doeschate (Netherlands), Jacques Kallis (South Africa), Shakib Al Hasan (Bangladesh), Eoin Morgan (England), Sunil Narine (West Indies).
This need not happen in the field of play as only four foreigners allowed per team while I already have travessed the continents of Asia, Europe, America, Africa. Only Australia and Antarctica remain in this case. Antarctica yet to send players to IPL while Australians celebrate with their Mumbai or Delhi teammates or any other teams also.

So just lets enjoy this funny little thing happening out there!!!

Tailender : Controversies though do not seem to abate in the IPL, beginning right from Season 1 when Sreesanth cried on live television after Bhajji handed him a kaanpatti (slap).
