My STARS in team RCB

As cliché as it may appear, rating player performances and picking out stars after major tournament, is the brainchild of leading dailies. Here I’ve come up with my set of STARS, after bonding so well


with the team for over three weeks.


 


*Sidhartha Mallya-


 


royal challengers


This guy is a
superstar. Owner and Director of RCB, he saw to it that we chiefs were treated
well. Along with the players, even we CHIEFS were his assets, he’d say. He pampered
us to the hilt with his amazing hospitality.


But the one incident that stands out for me is when he
acknowledged me each time Dravid did well, during our clash against MI.


Knowing how big a Dravid fan I was, each time Dravid hit a
four during his commendable knock of 71 against MI, Sidhartha waved out to me
from the owners dug out. Outside the Media Centre balcony, I swelled in pride
each time he did that.


 A tweet back from him after getting back home just added to
my mirth. 





Virat Kohli-


 


royal challengers


            His match saving knocks in this
tournament will be the most talked about in the cricketing fraternity. But this
Delhi lad is a
far cry from what people think of him to be. Aggressive, snob, with loads of
attitude…well nooo! That’s not Virat Kohli at all. This guy is a warm, friendly
and fun to be with Punjabi munda who is always hooked to his Ipod and has some
pranks lined up for his team mates. Though he didn’t figure out what Dharma,
Shireen and I were upto during the first week (he didn’t expect the fanatic
fans would travel overseas too), we got along like a house on fire for the rest
of the tour.


 


Vinay Kumar-


 royal challengers


He rose to the occasion every time
the team needed him. One of the most economical bowlers in the tournament,
Vinay tried his best to save us of the blushes many times. Gem of a person that
he is, Vinay was more than happy to have us on board. The only player to have
joined us during our Soccer city tour, we bonded really well. He wanted us to
join the team for next IPL as well. He was mighty impressed with our fanaticism
towards the team.


 


Rahul Dravid-


 royal challengers


 


 


At loss of words
when I write about my idol. I was in a similar situation when Dravid gifted me
his jersey that he wore for the semis. After the match against Chennai, he very
sweetly gave me the autographed jersey. Overwhelmed by his gesture, I just
couldn’t stop thanking him.


 


Ray Jennings-


 


The star of our
team, works doubly hard with the boys but also made sure that was not ‘all work
and no play’ He had organized two tours during our stay in SA. Soccer city,
Mandela house tour and the Ushaka Marine world visit. Every morning at the
breakfast table he would fill us chiefs in about the various cultures of the
Rainbow nation, the hotspots and the rich cricketing history of the country.



 


Dillon Du Preez-


If there was an award for the most chivalrous player in cricket, Du Preez would win it hands down. :-P 


P.S. Listing down these players as my stars, doesnt make the rest of them any less a star. They are stars in their own right :-)
