Champions League optimism
Right. Delhi vs. Victoria today, and I'm keen to see how things turn out. The club version of the game as played in the IPL failed to make a fan out of me. I suspect I will be more enthused by the version that features some international edge to it, insofar as I can make some sort of facile nation vs. nation encounter out of it. Delhi vs. Victoria is a particularly clearcut example of that, and it helps that Gambhir and Sehwag are opening. India openers but Delhi boys first.
