This is properly mad.
Watch as the start of yesterday's IPL match between Rising Pune Supergiant and Kolkata Knight Riders at Eden Gardens (key information) went from relatively mundane tradition to utter madness in the space of seconds.
Not satisfied by ringing a ruddy big bell? Fine, back it up with an inexplicable WWE style set piece based on a crap Old Testament pun.
The absolute state of it.
I keep veering between thinking it's the worst thing that's ever happened and the future of making all sports instantly more marvelous.
I await, with baited breath, to hear what Geoffrey Boycott's got to say on the matter.
