Indian Party League!

>> Saturday, March 13, 2010

The stage was set, the pitch ready. Shah Rukh Khan’s team was all set to battle it out with last year’s winners, Team Deccan, at the inaugural match of IPL-3 and the cricket fever was in the air at Mumbai’s DY Patil stadium.

Cheering on were the owners of the stadium, DY Patil with his sons Ajeenkya and Vijay; team owners Shah Rukh Khan (who left midway) and Vijay Mallya with his son Sidhartha; cricketers Sir Gary Sobers and Anil Kumble; politicos Jayant Patil, Rajiv Shukla and Asif Bhamla and a host of others including Atul Kasbekar, Arjun Rampal (who was hounded for autographs), Anjali and Arjun Tendulkar, choreographer Ganesh Hegde, Abhishek Kapoor, Ali and Mohammed Morani and Feroz Abbas Khan.
