Googly by journos at Mumbai Indians' promotional event!
A rare sight was witnessed at Lower Parel yesterday when the assembled media stayed away from asking questions to legendary Sachin Tendulkar and head coach John Wright during a Mumbai Indians promotional event
It is not often that Tendulkar is made available to the media and Wright was never media savvy when he was coach of India.
When the duo arrived on stage for an interaction with the members of the fourth estate, the organiser instructed mediapersons to ask questions only pertaining to their tie-up with the Indian Premier League franchise. This didn’t go down well with the media, who were firstly kept waiting for over an hour.
The pressmen chose not to ask any questions and the event ended immediately after Tendulkar and Wright launched the product. The least the journos expected were some quotes on the forthcoming sixth edition of the IPL.
