    I don't think so, in the reposted article:) It said he had talked with organizers of IBL to be included but it was up to the teams to now pick him at his reduced price. so no contact with Awadhe.

    In a moment of anger he has made these statements in lieu of all he had done to make it possible for him to play.

    I think he is trying to make up for his "irritating comments" by still supporting the event and being proactive in getting back on side. Basically he likes the idea of the league and wants to be on board. (I don't think it's about the money at present but more the money it could inject in the future probably)

    I would like to believe, it was me who informed Boe about the unavailability about the Thai player and that he should contact the officials again. I wouldn't mind if he offers me a ticket or two for some of his matches :D

    By the way, whats with Akshay-Pranav pair? In the world championship their draw says - No match, which probably means both the teams have not reported. Is there some injury or are they preparing for IBL by skipping WC!!

    Sania is the tennis player - she plays doubles these days and is already married.
    Saina is the one, I hope, you are referring to. Given her fame in India, I am certain she won't have any trouble getting a millionaire here.;)

    If she doesnt change her mind, she should get married to kashyap in the future. Gopi doesnt seem to be too happy with this so called affair. I am not making this up. Her biography says so.

    :) They arent yet married nor engaged so let it be left to them. Privacy is a Right I believe. Anyways when two players travel together, they are bound to be friends and seen in the same hotel lobby, media needs gossip to throw it out of proportions... so leave it at that.

    I guess he was referring to Sania for her history not SN, as SN would be a hard catch. And about the millionaire thing he must have someting really special for SN leaving a billionaire and settling down for a millionaire?

    Yes. It was also mentioned that she had a marriage proposal from a famous boxer from north India (my guess ?Vijender Singh....who else can it be), which was rejected by her parents.
