I P L II - Matches till 7th May

..contd from here

An opening ceremony with firecrackers and rope dance plus some amazing cheerleaders Razz was how IPL marked its Arrival.

Just 8 matches over and it is a huge hit already. International enemies are now friends and share the same dressing room and plot for the wicket of their own team mates now playing against them. Loyalty to their own city have started catching up (instances of Dravid getting booed at Mumbai and Sehwag not appreciated for his boundaries and sixes at Hyderabad are proof). Kolkatta, Delhi and Chennai seem the favorites now, though in a highly unpredictable game of T20 we might even end up seeing a final of Rajasthan and Bangalore.
