Well hi everyone this is my 1st post here.....n me making this post coz I had been to the Wankhede stadium in Mumbai to watch the Semi final yest Embarrassed and I thought I should share my experience with uTongue....hope u all enjoy reading it

Well though I was supporting Punjab but I have to say.....that the crowd there was pretty much neutral since Mumbai wasnt playing....all they wanted was good cricket.....and we all cheered for everything.....be it a good shot by the Kings Eleven or the CSK......everytime a shot was played or a wicket was snatched......everyone would jump off their seats n start screaming

There was sooo much of a noise that u actually 4get which team u r supporting n start screaming n shouting for anything n everything......the shouts n the screams r certainly contagious LOL......so much so that the unbearable heat of Mumbai also becomes bearable for those 3 hours

Fortunately for me since I was supporting the Kings Eleven.....I was seated right behind the Kings Eleven cheer leaders Big smile.....n my entire stand had way too many Kings Eleven supporters.....infact at both times while entering as well as while leaving the stadium.....I could see quite a few ppl wearing the Kings Eleven T-shirtEmbarrassed......quite a few who had purposely dressed in something red n white to lend their support to themEmbarrassed.....though there were quite a few others too who were wearing the Mumbai Indians T-shirt and some wearing the Indian Team ka T-shirt.....surprisingly amidst so much crowd I couldnt spot anyone wearing the CSK T-shirt Confused

Now coming on to the match......like I said everything was cheered for......even b4 a ball is bowled there were so many shouts n screams........everytime an Indian came to bowl or bat there was sooo much cheer with his name.....esp Yuvi n also when Pathan was given the 1st over

Though it seemed there was a lot of hatred against Sreesanth after his sad episode with Bhajji n I dunno whether this was shown on TV or no but after this 1st over......when it was time for him to bowl the 2nd over.....Yuvi came upto Sreesanth n took the ball from him.....though Sreesanth really wanted to bowl that over but Yuvi was adamant not to give it to him.......n the crowd suddenly started screaming " Royega bhai royega sreesant royega " LOL

The players whom I could spot most of the times with my naked eye were Muralitharan n Yuvi but the players closest to the stand where I was sitting were Gony, Raina and VRV Singh.

Everytime they came close to the stands there was a lot of cheer with their names.....n both Gony n Raina were sporting enough to wave to the crowdBig smile
I have to add that all 3 of them r really very very fair.

Preity Zinta was sitting right opposite to my stand......n I could spot her with my Binoculars EmbarrassedEmbarrassed n that was surely a citi moment of success for me Wink coz she is my fav actress n the main reason I was there at the Wankhede for this very match was herEmbarrassedEmbarrassed.....this is something I will never 4get everBig smile

The other ppl who were the show stealers were the Cheer Leaders....I tell u all these Uncles as well as all these youngsters.....more than taking pix of the cricketers they were all busy clicking pix of the cheer leaders LOLLOL.

Am sure u all dont know this but after every over while u guys watch the ads on TV what happens in the stadium is that once they will play the CSK ka special music n then the next over they play the Kings Eleven ka special music.....n everytime it is played the respective cheer leaders start dancing to their song n none of the guys missed recording those dances Wink
And the over after that they play a special music not related to either of the teams but its groovy n foot tapping for sure n everyone in the crowd really starting dancing everytime it was played......like I said the heat goes for a toss......the team u support doesnt matter anymore.........all u do is enjoy the game of cricket.......n I had a gala time at the stadium.......its an experience I will never ever 4get all my life.......n I am waiting to experience this once again....some time really soon......coz it feels like I have become addicted to it LOL......take my word of advice guys.....if u get a chance do go and watch a match at the stadium live.....u will love it and thoroughly enjoy it Big smile
