mumbai indian sexy cheerleader sent back home for revealing after match sex with players
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.

Part I: Confessions of an IPL Cheerleader…
Posted on April 15, 2011
Our secret IPL Girl will be blogging exclusively for AlternativeCricket.com for the duration of the tournament. In her first blog, she gives an insight into what it’s like to be cheering in front of thousands in the searing heat, in the knowledge that Shane Warne is probably hiding in the bushes…
AS a young South African girl, I have never had the opportunity to travel abroad. All I have ever come to know are crazy Zimbo’s and chilled out Mozambicans. So when the chance to tour India during the IPL came about, I jumped at the opportunity.
Get paid to be in a foreign country, doing what I love? Hells yes!
Two months off to explore a different culture? For sure!
Dancing experience? Tick!
Although, not quite the dancing I was used to…my job description? A professional cheerleader!
The auditions and rehearsals were somewhat interesting, a challenge, to say the least. My dancing style changed from classical and poised, to bust-popping and booty-shaking!
Surely there’s room for these in the game?
The ICC Twenty20 CWC in SA 2007 was the first international cricket event to ever have cheerleaders. Cheerleading originated in the USA for sporting events such as NFL and basketball, to encourage audience participation and support. It is a sport of its own, consisting of stunts, jumps, pyramids, cheers and dancing. Although, we only
concentrate on the dancing side of things, mainly to avoid broken collar bones, concussions and ultimately paralysis!
During IPL 2008, cheerleading was introduced to add some glamour to the game. These girls were the USA Red Sox and they kicked up quite the scandal for conservative Indian crowds. Such a thing and type of dress code had never been seen before at the games. The girls were said to be vulgar and obscene, and were fined by Mumbai police for violating entertainment licenses. The girls dealt with jeering and mocking comments from the crowd and the main reaction was that cheerleading was making a mockery of the game.
But what defines vulgarity ?
The indignation was rather misplaced, as Mumbai city is home to the thriving industry of Bollywood films, where dance sequences featuring women in skimpy dresses are a matter of routine. In India, womanhood is respected, and women keep their Indian values intact. So you can imagine the amount of dropped jaws when these blonde bimbos began breaking it down in front of thousands of men, women and children, wearing thigh-high boots and a belt for a skirt!
The Women: Livid, disgraced and maybe secretly, a tad jealous too.
The Men: Shockingly fascinated and maybe secretly a tad excited!
My thoughts: Well, I am not Indian but it’s 2011, get over it! This is cutting edge stuff, learn to embrace it. The media will always ridicule anything in the slightest bit naughty, but hey, we don’t design the outfits, our Indian designers and sponsors do, so why such a problem?
I have now cheered at three matches for my team Mumbai Indians, and they have been defeated just once. To tell you the truth, I believe it’s partly because of our dancing – the crowd have a huge love for the sport, they go absolutely wild, and when we step up on that podium, the men literally lose their freaking minds! The cricketers catch on too with the positive vibes, if you know what I mean!
I am proud and happy to be associated with the event as a whole, whilst shaking my ass!
So, does cheerleading really blunt cricket? I think not.
After all, it is ‘the gentleman’s game!’

The Secret Diary of an IPL Cheerleader – Part II
Posted on April 28, 2011
BEFORE departing for India, I had friends and family passing on travel tips, advice and personal experiences. Some of it good, and some of it worrying. As this was my first trip overseas, I needed to take it all in. But with any challenge in life, I like to have an open heart, clear head and positive attitude. This was not just a holiday abroad, this was a job and nobody could prepare me to become a cricket-loving, cheerleading, IPL girl but me!
Already three weeks have passed and in that time I cannot believe how a group of normal girls can become instant celebrities! Each team of ten girls has a manager and we all receive strict instructions from them about safety, behaviour and reputation, as it seems girls from previous years did not heed the rule book!
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!
On our days off, we are free to explore and take in what India has to offer but its not always easy. You can just imagine, a group of fit, easy on the eye, western ladies cruising the congested busy streets…
To the citizens, we are practically like walking porn! All eyes are on you all the time; it is complete voyeurism. The women double take, see you and then pretend you do not exist. The men see your face, then your boobs, your butt, and then your boobs again! As we walk, all you hear is “IPL, IPL!” with a little head jingle!
Usually only after day matches there is an exclusive after party and at night is when it all happens. The music pumps, the drinks flow and the cricketers come and go. We mingle and associate with important people of the IPL wearing their finest and sexiest, sponsors of all sorts, media and fashion shows, even Indian MTV! But the real fun happens in the VIP rooms where the players and night owls can cause scandal! The few Indian players we have met, such as MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma have been very polite and keep to themselves in the dark corners. Hotshots like Tendulkar with families at home are never present. The likes of Jonty Rhodes and Albie Morkel are notorious for having a good time with friends!
‘Ol Graeme Smith will flirt with anything while his girlfriend lurks behind him. The Aussies are fun but naughty, such as Aiden Blizzard and Dan Christian. By the end of a crazy evening, a certain someone had played kissing catchers with three girls known to me only, although he has his own girlfriend back home. He cooed to each girl, “Come home with me, I just want to cuddle!’
Oh, please! I have come to realise that cricketers are the most loose and mischievious sportsmen I have come across. Makes me wonder if I should worry about them more then the commoners on the street! I still have a long while here, so I shall keep my tip list in mind.
Tip number 1: ‘Beware of the cricketers!’
