IPL 10

It is hard to believe but the IPL is turning 10 years old... and is now an established event on the calendar of the WORLD GAME....

All test countries except Pakistan and several associates such as Afghanistan have players playing in the tournament...making it a global phenomenon the likes of no other T20 tournament in the world.

As a cricket fan I am looking forward to the day that Pakistani players are also allowed to play in the IPL... but that can only happen when Pakistan stops sponsoring terrorist violence against India.

As I wrote in another article previously...this is the minimum required for resumption of India Pakistan cricket ties. [www.cricketnetwork.co.uk]

In the meantime, Indian fans, especially school kids now look forward to the IPL as part of their Summer vacation... something to look forward to after slogging for finals and a nice reward for studying hard...smiling smiley

Ashwin and KL Rahul Out of IPL

Looks like Ashwin, KL Rahul, and Kohli (for early part at least) are going to miss the IPL...

Ashwin has a sports hernia... that was known at the end of England series... but he soldiered on... Considering that his performance against Australia was UNBELIEVABLE... what a team player!!!


KL Rahul has been nursing a shoulder injury... and even missed a Test or two due to it... good he is giving it a good rest.

Glad to see that Indian players are prioritizing TEST cricket...

Anyway Puji and Ishant are not playing and I hope they don't over burden guys like Umesh and Jadeja our other match winners in Tests...

Now Delhi pick up Ishant...in place of injured Murali Vijay... strange decision, though not sure Ishant will play given the strength of their pace bowling line up already...

Mighty impressed with Gautam Gambhir's captaincy...

KKR look the team to beat in this IPL...

Meanwhile Kohli has looked jaded with RCB...

Steve Smith has been nothing special either...

Surprised at how good Mumbai have been, though I don't see Rohit as being that great a captain...the Mumbai support staff and system look top notch

I am disappointed with Dhoni. He has played just one innings of note. After that, he has been very ordinary. His strike rate and average have been abysmal if we leave out that one knock.

Bhuvneshwar has been outstanding. And so have been Uthappa and Tripathi to name a few.

Fielding from Indian players has been outstanding as well. So much so that - I remember 4 top catches so far have been by Indian fielders.

Dhoni played well today. Important innings to take Pune to a win over SRH.
Now Pune have won both games against SRH and Dhoni has played important part in both wins.

Meanwhile KKR comprehensively beat RCB... Kohli's bat is cold as ice in 2017... and with it his captaincy seems to have taken a hit too...

All star bats of RCB - Gayle, ABDV and Kohli - have gone missing in this IPL.
Last year all were in great form.

Something is very off... call it team chemistry or whatever...but it is not there at all...

Dhoni played well today again in Qualifier helping Pune reach finals.
Scoring 2 sixes of Bumrah's and Inning's last over was top effort. Shows Dhoni has still got the mojo.

What I noticed was that Bumrah was bowling consistently in the 140+ kmph range...

He should be considered for the longer formats... his unorthodox action and ability to bowl Yorkers could provide a different attacking option when pitches are not super friendly to pace...

Mumbai win by 1 run. Although game was good, I feel bad for Pune.

Mumbai should have let Pune win. Mumbai has got every trophy in domestic cricket. Let Pune have one.
