10 things to do during the 7.5 min IPL time out

10. Fly the copter – fabulously addictive game

9. Masturbate- if you are a particularly adventurous type you could get two rounds in.

8. Attempt a trendy yet very cool Haiku puzzle

7. Try to balance a fork on the tip of your index finger.

6. Figure out which way is north from where you sit.

5.  If you are English, pop in the 2005 Ashes DVD and fastforward to the last over of the 2nd test.

4. If you are an Aussie – Sorry. Shit happens I guess.

3. If you are Indian – work on your effigies.

2. If you are a girl – Its OK,  Simon Jones’ upper body is still in tact.

1. Whatever you do make sure you are back for the last 2.5 mins to possibly catch a cheerleader nippleslip.

Some of these arn’t actually ‘things’ you can do. We couldnt really come up with 10 things, so we do what any self respecting cricket blogger would do – we improvised.

    Good list. What about toilet breaks?

    When effigies co-exist with cheerleaders, you can be rest assured there won’t be any wardrobe malfunctions. The Indian public will probably be furious and demand the cheerleaders wear jumpers or something. But trendy jumpers, of course.

    Love Slinga’s new hair do. Had forgotten how fab he is. Like Munaf Patel. Loved Bhaji giving Hayden the evils. Liked the crowd booing KP – that’s the way to motivate him! we should try it here. Didn’t get that many ads on Setanta – got Ronnie Irani which was surprisingly fun. Loved the total hopeless tackiness of it all – and quite frankly Damith you could go and make everyone a nice cup of tea in the break….

    Amy>Them cheeleader outfits this year are pretty skimpy although everyone seems to be enjoying it this year !

    crictragic>SRKs doing that for us.

    acro> Its a given. !

    Dave> He had a trim I gather

    Ceci> Looks like with his hair he got his mojo back too. Good to see.

    Didnt get that many ads either. Surprising. although we did get a couple of weird good looking guys doing round ups etc on One HD. They were just weird. I mean very weird.

    What chance Rajasthan going from Champs to Last? The batting looks really bad and the bowling lacks the zip provided by Watson and Tanvir.

    Shane Watson, the stand out performer of last season with bat and ball.

    Sohail Tanvir with his weirdly accurate bowling and slogs .

    Kamran Fakmal with his sloggin which if it comes off makes up for ham fisted gloves and stupid running

    Mo Kaif – any idea what happened?

    Tyron Henderson – useful bowler and slogger but never a 4,5 or 6 batsman

    Dimi Mascherenas – will do well with the ball but like Tyron can’t be expected to be a batsman

    On the plus side Australia have saved them from the disaster that is Shaun Tait.

    If Warne is such a great captain/tactician what is he doing with Niraj Vandort Patel? Patel almost cost them the final with his batting and repeated it in the final.

    Cricket Tragic – I’d like Warne’s number to text him the same.

    Damith I’ve used the break so far to change office clothes into home wear, toilet break, ciggy break cos i cant smoke in front of my dad, frying french fries, and a phone call.

    Amazingly ive done something different in every break that ive watched and surprisingly at time ive forgotten that i was watching an IPL game!
