SA cheerleader booted from IPL

2011-05-10 08:01

Durban - An Indian Premier League cheerleader from Pietermaritzburg who was blogging about the fun - and flirting - behind the scenes in India was sent home after her identity as a secret blogger was revealed.

South African cheerleader Gabriella Pasqualotto (22) was soaking up the glitz, glamour and parties of the cricket hype that is IPL. She was dressed to the nines and drinking champagne when she wasn’t the focus of millions of adoring fans.

Pasqualotto was one of 40 local women chosen for the IPL cheerleading squad that went to India at the beginning of April.

She was chosen to cheer for the prestigious Mumbai Indians team. But last week she was sent home in shame. As IPL cheerleader, she wrote harmless chit-chat about her lifestyle, but she also alluded to the fact that cricketers are not so innocent at the match after-parties.

Her blogging comments allegedly caused “privacy concerns” among cricketers.

But Pasqualotto said this week the whole issue is hypocritical. She said that on arrival in India the girls were warned to behave and to adhere to certain team rules. They were told not to fraternise with the cricketers because it could affect their game performance.

But she said quite a few of the cheerleaders were known to have been “intimate” with some of the cricketers and celebrity sponsors. She told The Witness that she is angry and disappointed at the way she was treated by the IPL.

“On Tuesday last week I was sent home as if I was a criminal. I was treated as if I had taken drugs or done something awful, and I was never offered an opportunity to give my side of the story.”

Pasqualotto was put on the first flight out of India and she is still reeling. When she began the tour, she began to tweet comments about her experience. She was approached by a website - - whose editors asked her to blog for them.

After two blogs a fellow cheerleader tipped off the cricketers in the Mumbai Indians team and another cricketer went straight to the chairperson of the IPL, who gave a direct order to Pasqualotto’s manager that she must be sent home. She had no time to cash traveller’s cheques or even buy a phone card.

“It’s a joke. There were cameras everywhere at these after-parties watching what they got up to. The guys treated us like pieces of meat.

We couldn’t go anywhere without the crowds mobbing us and many of the girls did not behave. But nothing I wrote was directed at any one person. I think the cricketer [an Aussie] who complained had a guilty conscience.”

In her blog, which she was forced to remove, she wrote: “The men see your face, then your boobs, then your butt, then your boobs again! As we walk all you hear is IPL, IPL with a little head jingle.

“Ol Graeme Smith will flirt with anything while his girlfriend walks behind him. The Aussies are naughty, a certain someone played kissing catches with three girls known to me and had a girlfriend back home. He told them: ‘Come back to my room, I want to cuddle!’

“These cricketers are the most loose and mischievious I have come across. I have a long while still here so I must remember my tip list: Beware of the cricketers!”

She lost a month worth of earnings, almost R8 000, and feels betrayed by her fellow cheerleaders, who she says she could easily have named for breaking the rules.

“One day I am treated like a mini celebrity. People think you are like handmaidens to the ‘cricket-gods’, and then I am thrown out for a silly blog.”

She has received masses of support from followers of Twitter who believe the cricketers should behave and she should be compensated.

Michael Owen-Smith, media officer for Cricket South Africa, said that all South African cricketers are committed to a code of conduct and are expected to follow it whether they are playing at home or abroad.

He declined to comment on the issue, saying it was an IPL matter.

One can follow the discussions on Twitter: IPL girl.

Craig Livingstone, agent for Graeme Smith, said there is no reason to comment on the matter as there were no allegations that Smith was misbehaving.

    At least she has the balls to tell the truth!

      Me - 2011-05-10 09:05

      If she was being paid by then this would be a serious conflict of interest and indeed warrant dissmissal. (Not that I support debauchery on the part of the cricketers)

      Bratt - 2011-05-10 09:48

      if her month earnings was R8000, then she can probably do better elsewhere.

      Creeky - 2011-05-10 10:49

      This 'cheerleaders story is so BLASE'... What kills me is the chirp from CSA, Michael Owen Smith, that SA Crickets are "....COMMITTED TO ACODE OF CONDUCT...."!!!! ROFLMAO!!! Thats NOT what Herschele Gibbs said in his book... I am more prone to believe Herschele than CSA's Media Spin-doctor!!

      lime - 2011-05-10 11:57

      maybe she should have a meeting with Gibbs...i see a new book on the horizon

      jowza - 2011-05-10 13:41

      i dont think she found the right balls

      PikeLee - 2011-05-10 14:25

      @YourNightmare, you hate whites, but now you want a white wife? your true colors are showing now you hypocrite.

      NickArmstron - 2011-05-10 17:54

      Well spoken girlfriend! :) F#ck those hypocritical tossers - the cricketers and the "celebrity sponsors" alike! WTF is that anyways - a "celebrity sponsor"? Who the F are they - there's no such thing - they are simply self-opinionated tossers with too much money who think their position in business 'buys' them importance. Big money, small d#ck syndrome... Lol! No worries Gabriella - you had fun - welcome back home - and never worry about an insignificant bunch of hypocrites! :)

      Brewster - 2011-05-10 22:17

      I wonder, is this what you'd call "maiden run"?

      Gorilla - 2011-05-11 08:58

      Rich? The truth? From one disgruntled employee? How fickle dude. Of course these guys and girls will party, it's a party atmosphere. They aren't monks FFS, I'm sure there are some things going on, but it's all part of the jol. anyone would be naive to think that young, attractive and single people put together in an atmosphere like that would not have some fun. Everyone should grow up.

      MarkJM - 2011-05-11 11:10

      Amen to that!

      Michelle - 2011-05-19 12:43

      what goes on on tour must stay on tour, this is how it has been for many many many years, however its not just sportsmen to blame here the girls go out dressed in almost nothing revealing every bit of their body that the law allows, and go and flirt etc with the guys who are i might add far away from home and will be easily tempted. If the sportsmen wanna mess around they will have to face the consequences of the choices they make, for the girls that flaunt it all to the sportsmen watch out you will be branded for life. it happened to someone i know who was a "groupie" but has not been one for 10 yrs but is still branded even though she is only trying to get autographs at cricket matches for her son. An innocent request turned into a nightmare for this lady. her son hearing his mothers name in the changerooms etc. to see a kid so passionate about a game for guys to make the remarks etc about his mother hurt him. A certain cape cobras player that day flirted with her a bit on the field, nothing came of it but he did give her son his SA cricket cap which was sweet however they were ragging her in the changerooms saying that he was next. People change but 10 years donw the line cricketers have not forgotten so in a way i am glad its all comming out because just like the girls are branded, they get branded too. TO the cricketers, get a life and stop living in the past if you remember her from 10 yrs ago she must have been dam good, grow up and get lives. to the girls be carefull

  • MWF - 2011-05-10 08:34

    lol, she probably loved every minute of being google eyed. Now she is just pissed off cause she has lost out. There are two sides to every story.

      GinSA1 - 2011-05-11 12:02

      Could not agree more. She referred to the way she was treated as a mini-celebrity and is p'd off now that she's lost out on that. She was there to be a cheerleader, not a PI. Good on them for sending her sorry ass back where it came from.

  • Bharadwaj Bharaat - 2011-05-10 08:39

    I would love to bringthis girl back here with me. We will do that. cheers

  • CM - 2011-05-10 08:52

    Oh what a surprise that professional sportsmen are banging the cheerleaders, I'm shocked

      amos - 2011-05-10 19:23

      @CM where have you been, why the surprise, i thought it was common cause?

      letlize - 2011-05-11 08:00

      @amos, the comment was sarcastic ...........

      Gorilla - 2011-05-11 08:59

      Amos? Google "sarcasm definition"

      andre.bester2 - 2011-05-11 13:18

      Maybe Amos and Letlize was on the panel...

  • Met Uysh! - 2011-05-10 09:28

    Good on you girl! These cricketers are worshipped but meanwhile they are like a bunch of horny school boys at a strip club every time there are tits around! Show them up for the hypocrites they are and for cheating on their loved ones back home!

      Grant - 2011-05-10 12:48

      Hmmm... wonder why her blog didnt go along the lines of this: "These CHEERLEADERS are the most loose and mischievious I have come across. Ol' Suzy Q will flirt with anything that moves - even with their girlfriends in-tow. What you see of the girls dancing pitch-side is nothing compared to their exploits with married men" I guess after the game, these girls have no option but to join these big parties in tight skirts with boobs on display, hey!? If she was attacking the ACTIONS, she should have included the cheerleaders - but she attacked the cricket players, and therefore PUBLICLY bringing disrepute to the game. At least the others did what they did behind closed doors and kept it in their PERSONAL lives...

      NickArmstron - 2011-05-10 18:00

      Well said mate! A bunch of tossers - the lot of them... Lol! And - no doubt - the nerd brigade at the CSA press office denies it all... Hahahahahahaha! Do they honestly believe the public believes them...?? My surprise is - why is any local girl desperate enough to go out with these okes in the first place...? Lol!

      andre.bester2 - 2011-05-11 13:20

      @ Grant: At last someone that makes sense!

  • karabo - 2011-05-10 09:34

    She was just about to cash in and they threw her out, why did she have to say people are misbehaving, it happens in every sport, just that she is the loser here,she didnt have to blog,just have fun with the cricketrs and stop telling....

  • Boggyzn - 2011-05-10 09:52

    For info, check out this link.

      Orcanda - 2011-05-11 16:48

      Boggynz I wonder why some people give you thumbs down? I think they dont like to be proven wrong about the girl. Most of them try now to shift the blame on her as if she was a loose woman even some woman who think that they are one of the boys (NOT!). I read the the blogspot and clearly that person who wrote it got more insite in whats going on then some of these morons on here. Just shows me they will cheat on their wifes and g/friends and think its okay if I read all the comments

  • sonnyg - 2011-05-10 09:53

    Cricketers and footballers are all nobs.

      GinSA1 - 2011-05-11 12:04

      And they use them ('nobs') on willing females who flaunt themselves and are looking for what they get. Nobody forced them to be at the parties, and this girl was there to cheerlead, not to blog.

  • Andrea - 2011-05-10 09:58

    she was not being paid by and there is no clause on facebook, twitter or blogging in her contract!

      wigga - 2011-05-10 11:00

      well said! if only the rest of these people read this!

      Alex - 2011-05-10 12:35

      Hard to believe. Do you have proof or are your stories just as made up as hers?

      Matt - 2011-05-10 13:04

      Andrea dude, ignore these f@#king imbeciles on news24: they are always ignorant, bigoted keyboard-warriors with nothing better to do then spit pointless, uninformed remarks about events or persons they have no actual knowledge about.

      Freakeee - 2011-05-10 17:46

      there might not be a clause against blogging but somewhere in the contract it should mention something about damaging the brand. Several people have been fired due to comments made on social sites refering to their employer/work

    I'm sorry but she lived the life and she saw what was happening how come she did not say something then...why now after being dimissed does she want to have sour grapes and rat out what's happening behind the scenes??!!! It would have been more sincere if she was so truthfull when things were well...Accept the loss and move on!!!

      Met Uysh! - 2011-05-10 12:01

      Uhmm...did you read the article? She was ratting them out WHILE living the life therefore she got the boot!!

      Sickly - 2011-05-11 12:18

      Idiot Met Uysh she was supposedly "ratting them out" because she was writing a blog on behalf of another company. Not because she's some noble cheerleader that all cheerleaders should aspire to be like.

  • CharlSkeptic - 2011-05-10 11:14

    She broke the unwritten rules. She'll learn from it, I hope. Thats why Hershelle only wrote the book after his career was basically over..... she could have been a little more sensible about this, and would have made a mint later on. NNNEEEEEEEXXXTT!!!!

  • StaalBurgher - 2011-05-10 11:48

    I am really curious why there is so much of this type of publicity for cricket and none for rugby. Surely the rugby guys get up to even more shenanigans, but we never seem to hear abour it, or at least on Sport24 we don't? And as for everyone pretending "shock-and-horror"... since their inception cheerleaders have been considered to be sports equivalent to rock-band groupies.

      Kenko - 2011-05-10 12:44

      Why would rugbyplayers be up to more shenanigans? Because they play a more manly game? Remember the adage about the sport for hooligans, played by gentlemen? To be honest, I think the cheerleaders are attractive, but I would think twice before I get physical with them. STD's are revolting, but the pain of conversation will be much worse.

      andre.bester2 - 2011-05-11 13:27

      Rugby player know how to please the cheerleaders...they would never tell...!

  • Alex - 2011-05-10 12:30

    She was contracted by the IPL. They obviously have privacy clauses in their contracts. Looks like a fair dismissal. If she had any sort of case for unfair dismissal she should be in the courts, not fighting her case in the media where cricketers have more tact than to fight back. Spoilt daddy's girl bit off more than she could chew...

  • muskrat - 2011-05-10 12:30

    To be honest, this is not the first iv heard of promiscuous cricketers being inappropriate and getting away with it. Two well known players, both of which had some form of WAG at the time, were at a club where they made full use of the opportunity to embrace some of the local talent. After being confronted, they threatened a friend of mine. I’m not saying they shouldn’t be chatting up girls, but when the general public knows you on that level, and knows you have a girlfriend or wife, you can’t be surprised when someone steps up and says something about it. It’s a pitty to see that the IPL, as big as they are, decided to handle the situation in such an uncivil manner; PR must have been asleep on the job. As for the blogging house that published the article; they should have taken a little more responsibility for the content they put up.

  • Ollie - 2011-05-10 12:31

    Uh, what exactly did she think this job was all about when she signed for it? Did she perhaps think she was being hired for her intellect? If you want to work in a questionable industry, don't be surprised when you get dismissed for questionable reasons. Whether this girl cares to admit it or not, the sole function of those cheer-leaders is to be eye-candy for horny male spectators. As a genuine sports fan, I find cheerleaders, dancing girls and round-card girls incredibly lame and totally unnnecessary to my enjoyment of the sport.

      Sickly - 2011-05-11 12:23

      But NickArmstrong, if it means nothing and you think it is rubbish don't watch it and don't comment on it or anything to do with it. Clearly you follow it closely, chop

      Michelle - 2011-05-19 13:22

      hey i love my sports and am a huge sports fanatic, i agree what is the point of having cheerleaders at the games. They trying to copy the rugby and hoping it will bring in more fans well honestly it looks very silly to have the chearleaders dancing everytime there is a wicket or a boundary or whatever it gets a bit much don't you think at least with Rugby it only happens when tries are scored which is far less than cricket games. i watch the game because i enjoy it i don't want these girls and guys dancing to ruin it for me....

  • Adam - 2011-05-10 13:35

    I thought cricket was 11 players on the field with 2 from the opposing team batting. Since when was it about Cheerleaders and the Fireworks etc... this is what the Cricketing World warned us against when Kerry Packer started his rebel cricket... IPL is overrated!!!

      jowza - 2011-05-10 13:39

      IS IT?

      NickArmstron - 2011-05-10 18:08

      Exactly! :) Well said mate! The IPL is absolute garbage!! Outside of India - who cares???? It's nothing but players playing for their pockets - and nothing - nothing to do with playing for one's country! It has the same value as if someone had to put cameras inside SARS offices - for the world to watch the accountants at work....... It's insignificant outside India - how many people in SA watch the cr@p...?? 200 to 300...?? Lol!

      SX137 - 2011-05-12 19:31

      I agree. 20/20 cricket is garbage as is the IPL.

      Michelle - 2011-05-19 13:26

      But its not just IPL its MTN 40's too!!!!! people go to watch the game not the dancers where males dress like females etc and clowns i mean what happened to the real game of cricket. cricket takes time i think cheerleaders should be kept for rugby only!!!!!!

  • Fetu - 2011-05-10 13:41

    Her intentions were not to share secret stories of certain cricketers lives! Just give a bit of insight into her life in India traveling around with the IPL. Fear, guilt, paranoia etc etc of these spineless cricketers messing around is what caused her to get banished. She had no plans to share the stories of, lets just call him, Mr Average Joe State Cricketer and his escapades with cheerleaders. But this fool (read d00s) took it upon himself to ruin her experience! Sucks to have to go to the newspapers but good on ya IplGirl! These cricketers think they are Gods! Nice trip down to earth for them! Must be a few of them nipping in India right now! Cant wait for this story to get to Australia by tomorrow morning!

      jowza - 2011-05-10 13:48

      she is a cheerleader.her job is to wiggle her bum to all watching

      Fetu - 2011-05-10 14:05

      Another narrow-minded opinion. Thanks @jowza!

      Kenko - 2011-05-10 14:51

      @Fetu - Please tell us what else are they there for?

      Fetu - 2011-05-10 15:16

      Think you missed the point of the article and my statement @Kenko! We all know she was there to dance! This is pretty clear! The problem is the manner in which she was treated in India - dumped at the airport and "booted" out of India without any notice! All because of a witty blog and cricketers paranoia! You think its fair play??

      Alex - 2011-05-10 18:54

      She ruined her own experience by mentioning things in her blog she had no business mentioning. @Fetu: Are you allowed to give away trade secrets and bring your company into disrepute at your job, if you have one?

      Fetu - 2011-05-10 19:47

      Yes I am employed. I see you dont have a job Alex, but anyways thats besides the point. Lets not judge someones inability to find work here. Since when did what happened in the pub after hours become a trade secret? Unless I was a bar manager maybe??? If you took the time to actually read the blog you might see that no actual secrets were given!

      Alex - 2011-05-11 00:12

      It can still be said that she brought the IPL into disrepute, even without revealing hard facts. (further disrepute if you like...). It's like saying your boss is a pervert/sex addict without giving details. btw, I have a job waiting for me once I'm done studying. So yes, "we" should not judge someones inability to find work here.

  • demaio82 - 2011-05-10 13:57

  • NJRobson - 2011-05-10 15:28

    Forget the cricketers... You sure she wasn't booted for mentioning that they were in the country under false pretense? It sounds like the management team hadn't sorted work permits out.... just something I picked up in the blog : For example, if people ask why we are in their country, we have to say that we are friends on holiday. The majority of Indians are cricket crazy, glued to their televisions, reading the papers, supporting their teams. So as the tournament kicked off, it became pretty obvious we were not telling the truth! Read more:

    Should one honestly be proud to be associated with or participate in (directly or indirectly) any activities of this nature? Personally, one word comes to mind: PROMISCUITY!!!!!!!!!! Romans 13:13: Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. Ephesians 5:3: But sexual immorality and all impurity or covetousness must not even be named among you, as is proper among saints. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20: Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:13: “Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food”—and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. Flashing your body at these type of events and being allowed to be looked upon as meat is unacceptable – both from the cheerleaders and the organisers! But then again, moral values seem to have so many levels that one can get away with anything…

    A "mini celebrity" being paid R 8000 per month is a very mini mini mini mini celebrity. If you go over there for R 8000 per month you must have alterior motives.

    Its funny how the Witness portrays her in such a virginal way when she was shaking her ass and boobs in front of everyone and how all the white people just side with her, good she got kicked out she deserves it.

      Uno_Beche - 2011-05-11 08:43

      reckon she lost her virginity several times over to several married men.....perhaps a few women too!!!

      Haha. You can only lose that thing once! Ricar, have another dop. You seem to be in need of one.

      GinSA1 - 2011-05-11 12:12

      RicarCHOP - I'm white, I don't side with her. I agree, she was there to shake that ass and now wants to act like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth, all innocent.

    The last time I watched a full cricket match was in the 90s with Donald, Klusener, Symcox and the like. Since then the game has become all the poorer. Now I would rather spend my day at the beach than watch a bunch of high-paid knobs chew gum and pretend to give a toss when they're bowled out. The glory days of cricket are over. It's just money now. No class.

      You didnt' watch the 438 game ? Or the South African win in Aus in 08 ? You missed out buddy.
