'Entertainment Kaa Baap' started on television with extra masti and later there will be mouth-watering contest in opening match between Kolkata Knightriders and Deccan Chargers. Intial stages of this edition of IPL will miss some big names like McCullum, Gayle, Pollard, Pieterson, Michael Hussey,etc. list continues.
Today's clash is between last year's champion and the team which finished last on Podium. I feel this year Knightriders will emerge as strong contender because they have sorted out all their problems related to captaincy and coaching except fake IPL player which remained in news last year more than the team itself. On the other side Deccan Chargers are defending champions and they play hard to retain their title, so all in all good contest will be on display.
For Knightriders, Sourav Ganguly I feel will be key as he is a captain and also off late he is in great form as we all saw in domestic cricket how well played and most important, he has not lost his timing at all and still a god on off-side. For Deccan Chargers player who will be important will be Andrew Symonds. I feel he is one player who can change the course of match with-in over or two.
This IPL edition will see some change in strategy break rule and it is like 2.5 minutes break between 6th to 8th over for batting side and for bowling side it will between 14th to 16th over unlike last year breaks of 5 minutes after 10 overs in each innings. Actually these break not needed but it has more commercial interest than team strategy interest.
So get entertained for next 46 days and forget daily soaps.
