The most noteworthy news of IPL is that Gabriella Pasqualotto, the IPL Cheerleader for the Mumbai Indians, has been fired and sent back home to South Africa.
The only crime she committed was some juicy revelations about cricketers’ adventures on her Twitter account and a blog for a cricket website. In her blog, she had opinions on the IPL, its management, the crowds, and even revealed cricketers’ sex secrets.
Gabriella revealed that once a player kissed three girls in one night. He also begged them all to come back to his hotel room with him to “cuddle.” The Mumbai Indians are essentially assured of a place in the playoffs of the ongoing season of IPL, but they will be without one of their cheerleaders, who was thrown out of the IPL after it emerged that she was writing a “saucy” blog for the Alternative Cricket Almanack.
Gabriella Pasqualotto has returned home to South Africa after it came to light that she was the writer of “The Secret Diary of an IPL Cheerleader”. According to sources, she used to talks about her experiences in India and names some of the cricket’s more party-loving and flirty characters.
In her blog, Ms. Pasqalotto wrote, “Usually only after day matches there is an exclusive after party and at night is when it all happens. The music pumps, the drinks flow, and the cricketers come and go … the real fun happens in the VIP rooms where the players and night owls can cause scandal!”
She further added, “The likes of Jonty Rhodes and Albie Morkel are notorious for having a good time with friends! ‘Ol Graeme Smith will flirt with anything while his girlfriend lurks behind him. The Aussies are fun but naughty, such as Aiden Blizzard and Dan Christian.”
Ms. Pasqalotto continues; “By the end of a crazy evening, a certain someone had played kissing catchers with three girls known to me only, although he has his own girlfriend back home. He cooed to each girl, “Come home with me, I just want to cuddle!’”
A Mumbai Indians spokesman was refraining from commenting, while the IPL hasn’t yet spoken about the matter either.
Pasqalotto also added, “The few Indian players we have met, such as M.S. Dhoni and Rohit Sharma have been very polite and keep to themselves in the dark corners. Hotshots like Tendulkar with families at home are never present.”
Talking about her experience of the ordinary Indian man and woman. She said, “On our days off, we are free to explore and take in what India has to offer but it’s not always easy. You can just imagine, a group of fit, easy on the eye, western ladies cruising the congested busy streets….”
She added, “To the citizens, we are practically like walking porn! All eyes are on you all the time; it is complete voyeurism. The women double take, see you and then pretend you do not exist.”
She concluded by saying that certain cricketers are more of a threat, she said, “I have come to realize that cricketers are the loosest and mischievous sportsmen I have come across. Makes me wonder if I should worry about them more than the commoners on the street! … Tip number 1: ‘Beware of the cricketers!’”
