    As long as Dravid continues to be leading Bangalore, Mallya will remain cursing his luck. Dravid was thrust on him as ICON player. Let alone Icon he shold not even be carrying drinks in a 20-20 match. He is an absolute misfit and is diametrically different from the flamboyant style that anything connected with Mallya otherwise signify. Its really unfortunate that Kingfisher is being looked at as a “thanda” brand now!!! After spending Limitless Crores!!
