IPL Circus Kicked-Off To Perfection

IPL circus kicked-off with great match between KKR & DC. it was the match in which, team dominated first 10 overs of each innings lost and team which dominated last 10 overs in each innings won. I must say good start is half job done which Chargers did and good finish means mission accomplished which was achieved by Knightriders and they won the match. Sourav Ganguly showed yesterday why he is the most successful captain, its his fighting skills that makes him great. He failed with the bat but his captaincy was spot-on, right from the bowling changes to field placings and didn't panic when Gilchrist and Laxman were blazing and even they dropped few catches as well. Something which was more interesting in Ganguly was, he captained in his typical fashion, showing lot of emotions on the field which he is known for. So great win for KKR and Shahrukh Khan. As far as Chargers are concerned they have to blame themselves as they got dream start in both innings but couldn't hold their nerves till the end.

Coming to today's encounter, I think first encounter will be between two great friends off the field and great rivals on the field. Indeed its been battle between two legends of the game Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne. Both are champions in their own craft and it will be the contest of the tournament and also revive the great rivalry which we saw in past. MI have two most successful bowlers of India in their ranks in Harbhajan Singh and Zaheer Khan which gives them slight advantage over RR.

Another contest will be between Kings XI Punjab and Delhi Daredevils and here I can clearly say DD are favourites simply because of their batting line-up as they have Warner, Dilshan, Sehwag and Gambhir as their top 4 batsmen. As far as Punjab s concerned they will miss the services of Brett Lee and Shaun Marsh but good news for them is Sangakkara is in great form and Yuvraj Singh has been also recovered from his injury so I feel it will be good contest with DD starts as favourites with slight edge on their batting.
