IPL Fever Is On!

Lucas: Hey buddy! Any plans for the evening?

Nathan: Tonight I’m going to be glued to my Tv. I’m gonna watch the IPL.

Lucas: IPL? Has the season started already?

Nathan: Not yet! The first match will be played today. Rajasthan Royals will face the Delhi Daredevils.

Lucas: Awesome! Then I’ll join you in the evening. We’ll see the match together.

Nathan: Great idea!

Last Night’s Match.

Lucas: Tell me you didn’t miss yesterday’s match!

Cartin: I wouldn’t miss it! Gosh, it was heart wrenching! I had never seen such an exciting match before!

Lucas: I cannot forget the last shot by Gayle! It was one of the best shots ever!

Cartin: And Michael Clarke was at the top of his game! He made all the difference.

Lucas: Absolutely! He was playing as if he were immortal.

Cartin: Couldn’t agree more bro!

Going to the Stadium.

Boyle: What are you doing tonight?

Jamie: Nothing planned. What about you?

Boyle: Well...I’ve got two tickets for today’s India v/s Australia match. What do you say?

Jamie: Gosh! I'm a die hard fan of George Bailey. I just love to watch him play.

Boyle: Oh man! What’s wrong with you girls? Why do you always enjoy watching cricketers instead of cricket itself?

Jamie: Say what? Yes, I admire a guy who can play well. What’s wrong with that?

Boyle: (sigh/smiling) Just be ready by 5!

Discussing The Current Match.

Boyle: So what do you think? Who’s gonna win the match?

Nathan: England seems to have good chances.

Boyle: I agree. But I guess Australia can still make it, if bowlers start pushing it.

Nathan: Yeah. Australia right now is totally dependent on the bowlers. If they are able to take 2 more wickets in the next 3 overs, they may have a good chance to win.

Boyle: Let’s see what happens. I’m not taking any sides for now.
