Got this email in a mail chain that did the rounds during a system testing process. A test engineer sent this to his problem manager at the client's overseas office.

Hi ***,
The correct URL for *** is http://*** and not as mentioned in my previous mail. Apologise for the error.

Vijay Mallya, the owner of the Bangalore Royal Challengers team, dismissed Charu Sharma from his post of the team-CEO after the team lost five out of their seven matches in the ongoing Indian Premier League. To improve the state of affairs, Brijesh Patel, the secretary of the Karnataka State Cricket Association was given the CEO's post and imagine what happened next :

The Royal Challengers extended their losing streak to six.

Potholed roads, traffic moving at snail's pace, clogged traffic intersections, high rate of crime; as if all this is not enough, more problems have begun to plague Bangalore, not the city but its IPL cricket team, the Royal Challengers. Latest in line is the ouster of its CEO, Charu Sharma. Apparently Vijay Mallya is not happy with the state of affairs with the BRC and feels that the chink is in the armour of the management and has shown the door to Sharma. Reading the full story reveals that the team management feels Charu cannot go out and bat and has appointed the Karnataka State Cricket Association(KSCA) president Brijesh Patel in his place. Now do they expect 55-year old Patel to go out to the centre and win matches for the Royal Challengers?

Siddhartha Vaidyanathan, assistant editor of Cricinfo, feels that the problem is in the team and not in the management. The general feeling about the BRC is that it is full of Test players. But one cannot ignore the presence of T20-capable players either. Sample this:Cameron White, Virat Kohli, Mark Boucher, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Praveen Kumar, Zaheer Khan and of course, Ross Taylor. After the loss in the inaugural match against Kolkata, Dravid dropped Cameron White from the side. Chanderpaul has been used for only two matches so far. Dravid needs to do some wise thinking on his part, if he wants to avoid such costly mistakes in the second leg of the round-robin.

The current positions of the eight teams bears some connection with their names. The Royals are riding high with the Kings in tow. Delhi's daredevilry has resulted in the Super Kings to be relegated to the lowest position in the top 4. The Knightriders have not had a smooth ride after the first two games. The Chargers, so far, have been used by four teams to recharge their motivation levels. Like the developing country, India, the Mumbai team is still in the development phase. The Royal Challengers, in their games so far, begin well only to lose momentum later. A probable reason could be that they down a few glasses of raw Royal Challenge (i.e without mixing) before each match.

The Chlormint incident
Monday, May 05, 2008
While watching the Chennai vs Rajasthan IPL match yesterday, I came across a spectator who had probably found out the real reason for Harbhajan slapping Sreesanth and tried to make his discovery public. Fortunately cameras captured it and unfortunately it was on air for a mere 3 seconds only.

Sreesanth: Bhajji bhaiya, log Chlormint kyon khaate hein?
Harbhajan: Slap!
