This financial downturn is taking a toll on everyone but the IPL players out there hardly realize that. Auctioned at such exorbitant rates they just don't give a damn for the penny spent on them. The owners of the teams should utilize them in different activities which they are good at. An Xtra Innings of sorts - daal pe tadke ki tarah.
Here are some ideas...
- Dada - The Bengal Tiger: KKR owner Shah Rukh Khan knows very well how bad a team he owns. He is the only one who utilizes his players in a better way off field. Other than using his players in "Karbo Ladbo Harbo" songs and crappy ads he should put his star player DADA in fashion shows. He can get a good chunk of his investments from GUCCI and the likes. Once DADA rocks the fashion floor with his tiger like roar and bare body. (Remember world cup bare body dance by Dada?)
Dada's cool body and (Bengal) tiger like roar will create a strong style statement.
- Sreesanth - The guy who cries like a girl on television because a crack head (read Jat) slapped him, has other talents as well. He is an avid dancer. Where else to make some Xtra bucks than on field with the cheer-girls. Players agree that their concentration remains on the cheer girls most of the time, that's why they act stupid as the balls pass by and goes for the boundary. Some players do get a huge performance boost on field just to impress the girls dancing behind. Letting Sreesanth dance with the girls will improve self confidence (of the girls, not Sreesanth!) and save the players from on filed disco mania that he is so fond of displaying.

- Muttiah Muralitharan - Undoubtedly one of the greatest players, Muttiah is batsman's worst dream. But still for 6,00,000 USD the owners of India Cement should put this talent to other use. They were clueless until Ram Gopal Verma who is known for digging diamond from dirt (and other way round) suggested them to use him as a scare crow in his next movie Phoonk 3 (where a crow is the central character)

- Lalit Modi - The guy who created it all by changing one letter in ICL. After losing the post of Chairman and Commissioner of the IPL and forcing Dr. Shashi Tharoor to resign this guy should be forced to sell donuts in IPL 4. This way he will not only improve his brand image but may also exalt his disgraced surname.
Lalit Modi could try community service to exalt his defamed surname
