Liz Hurley and Sakshi Dhoni promote WAGS IPL (Satire)

Quick on the heels of Anjum Chopra’s request to the BCCI to hold an IPL for women cricketers, the premier sports administrative body in the country received another appeal— this time for an IPL constituting wives and girlfriends (WAGS) of cricketers.

The move is spearheaded by Australian spinner Shane Warne’s current love interest, Elizabeth Hurley and MS Dhoni’s wife, Sakshi.

The international association, WAGS Of Cricketers or simply WAC, have proposed a cricket tourney on the lines of the IPL to be held at the same time.

The teams formed would mimic the IPL teams.

“We believe that every professional cricketer’s wife and girlfriend should be allowed to display their full-hearted espousal of their better-half’s profession and what better way than to have a travelling entourage of WAGS who play the game as well.” says Ms. Hurley.

“The games for WAGS can be scheduled during the day at the same venue as the IPL game. This will ensure that logistics is not a big issue. It will be a case of killing two birds with one stone. Co-location is good.”

When asked if this was an  elaborate excuse by WAGS to keep a sharp eye on their men by being as proximal as possible and prevent any flirtations or interactions with team cheerleaders, Ms. Sakshi was vehemence personified in her denial.

So far, a majority of Indian and Australian WAGS have signed the letter addressed  to ICC President Sharad Pawar.

Anjali Tendulkar has expressed her support for the cause.

The BCCI is currently in negotiations with WAC as how best to go about organising the event.

It has rejected a clause that would allow WAGS to play the game wearing stilettos.

“It is with regret that we have to strike out the said clause. The same pitch will be used by the ‘real’ IPL teams. Stilettos can damage the wicket and will tilt the game towards spinners.” said Shashank Manohar.

Liz Hurley made no attempt to hide her disappointment.

“A  churned pitch would have been so much better for Warney.” remarked the British actress in an aside, overheard by this correspondent.

Anjum Chopra has challenged any and all  WAGS to beat her in “Khatron Ke Khiladi” before allowing the BCCI to go ahead with the WAGS version of the IPL.

“Over my khiladi body!” were her exact words.
