IPL has been a crowd puller in lieu of the 20 over format.  I believe the interest seems to be waning in lieu too much cricket exposure.  However since the game is starting during the summer school vacations there is bound to be crowd thronging the stadium.  But the ticket prices shooting up is a downer.

Coming to the teams, the likely winners this time around is Poona Warriors with Ganguly captaining the side.  What is your pick guys

I will support Rajasthan Royals and not my home team RCB. I hate them because they didn't even bid for my Idol Rahul Dravid in the auctions. If this is Dravid's last season playing IPL then this will also be my last season watching IPL. Smile

I believe we are going to see Rahul Dravid in new Avataar, Vijay Mallya can be ruthless, he got rid of Kumble and Dravid almost same time.  Now he is paying for it indirectly.  I always believe one has to pray the price of bad deeds.  I too have lost faith in RCB, this time supporting Pune Warriors.

Mumbai INDIANS have won the toss and elected to field Chennai super kings have lost an early wicket 13/1 with a brilliant run out effort by Ambati Raydu

Mumbai Indians won the opening draw quite easily as predicted.  Chasing 112 was absolutely easy with Levi scoring a quickfire 69, Sachin retired at 16 Ambati Raydu and James Franklin polished off the game with 19 balls to spare with scoring 113 to overtake Chennai.

mumbai indians started with their win,

Match 3 Mumbai Indians vs Pune Warriors : Waiting to see Dada middling the ball after 3 years nearly.  I hope they make it.  My prediction for a Pune win

Match 4 Rajasthan Royals Vs Kings Punjab @ 8 Pm :  Hope Dravids royals win.

Match 3 Dada's team pulled off a thrilling victory against Mumbai Indian's.  Robin Uttappa and Dinda made it possible for the team to beat such a strong side.  I am sure Yuvi and Subroto roy must be extremely happy with Dada.

I am afraid the free pass row will eventually lead to high drama.  Now i understand why corporators are demanding passes of higher category, i believe in higher class food and drinks are served.  Well you can imagine what is going to be outcome.
