***Even for a cricket-crazy nation, the hype has been, well, a bit crazy. That's what happens when the suits and stars start padding up for the Indian Premier League (IPL), the Twenty20 cricket tournament that starts in April 2008. A call to a top GMR Holdings official has a noisy meeting in the background. No, it's not the latest at Delhi's mega airport project being discussed—it's about cricket. Elsewhere, Dabur's Mohit Burman is excited about setting up a new sports marketing and entertainment company.
And the latest buzz from Mumbai is that Shahrukh Khan is busy getting a music composer to prepare a theme song for his team.
