After some serious World Cup cricket action, fun and entertainment is back on the cricket field with IPL 4 starting today. Are you ready?
Past three seasons of the Indian Premier League have been exciting. The first year was a revelation, of how cricket can be turned into an exciting fun filled evening show. Second year, we had the terror scare and subsequently, IPL 2 was help is South Africa. IPL returned back to India in the third year and kept the nation hooked to Tv sets for almost two months.
The only thing different in the 4th version of IPL will be that there will be no Lalit Modi this time. the IPL creator and mastermind behind the whole tournament is hiding away in UK after charges of graft and corruption. BCCI will be mainly handling the whole event this time and it’d be good to see if they manage to do the job as well as Modi did.
In the firs game of IPL, Chennai Super Kings will take on Kolkata Knight Riders. While CSK is bolstered by world cup winning captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, KKR fans are still feeling a bit dejected on not having Sourav Ganguly in the team. Whether Shahrukh did a blunder on leaving Ganguly out or not, only time will tell, but for KKR, anything would be better than what they did last year!
