Imagine this: scantily clad women imported from Washington Redskins country gyrating to the beat of percussion-heavy Bollywood music composed by the likes of Vishal-Shekhar and Anu Malik. None other than the King himself, Shah Rukh Khan, and the pretty Ms Zinta, joining in, along with a boisterous crowd. Lights, cameras and plenty of action. Pipe dream? Maybe not. Over the next 45 days or so, we're going to find whether the mindboggling gamble that is the Indian Premier League will end up being a Bollywood style tearjerker for all the people who've pumped in millions, or manage to pull off an incredible coup that will change the dynamics of world cricket forever.
