India. IPL fans across the country have demanded for the team playing second should finish the full 20 overs, even after winning a game. BCCI has received an online petition signed by over a few lac fanatical cricket fans with the demand, it is learnt by Faking News.
“We pay too much money to watch an IPL game. Teams like Royal challengers and Kings XI score runs in 40s and 70s and the teams playing second chase down the score in less than 10 overs. We go to a match to watch 4s and 6s and what we get in return is 10 wickets falling faster than AAP members falling out of line, getting sacked”, a cricketainment enthusiast told Faking News.
“Some players play the game like our national sports hockey. A score of 3 or 4 is huge. Score of 10 is unheard of. A few more try to match the strike rate with that of their last school year percentage. There was one freak batsman who would score on par with the time of the hour. 4 runs at 4 o’clock, 5 runs for 5 o’clock and 8 and 9 for a night match!”, he further added.
“Playing the game after winning it would be the best thing that can happen to an IPL fan. There will be 4s and 6s, drop catches, no run outs and no boring singles and doubles. Tell you what! A few players will play much better after winning the game. Do this and IPL can erase the accusations of match fixing once and for all!”, he elaborated on what he would like to see to get his money’s worth.
Meanwhile, a few franchises have asked for 2 chances for each player to lose the wicket from the next edition of IPL, it is learnt by Faking News.
