Origins of IPL.....

Just in case you think the British invented cricket, and Lalit Modi invented the Indian Premier league(IPL), here is proof, that it may not be so....originally uncovered by the photographer on a trip to South Africa....

Roots of IPL,
watch those knee pads,
extra high stumps,
being handled
a brave batsman,
the original bat;

But whats amazing
is the cricket ball
huge on the ground.....
beyond the brown,
It's a six
beyond the blue;

And you look
for an umpire,
hands wide
or sometimes
just raised
the heavens,
and see
a cheerleader,
giving the fellow
a piece
of her cricketing mind.....
