Mumbai Indians were playing Bangalore Royal Challengers in the first semi final of IPL. I am sure Bangalore were hurting that the semi finals which were supposed to be hosted in Bangalore were rescheduled to be played in Mumbai for security reasons. RCB started quite well with getting quick wickets of Tendulkar, Dhawan and Nayar. […]
Today’s IPL match between Kings XI Punjab and Chennai Super Kings was crucial as CSK had a good net-run rate but needed to win this game to keep that run-rate higher and also qualify for Semis. Kings XI Punjab did put up a strong total of 192 and looked like causing a upset. It was […]
I grew up in Mumbai and have stayed for most part of my life in Mumbai, so saying my favorite IPL team is Mumbai Indians is a given. But I like Royal Challengers Bangalore as as team which has a great balance. It has my favourite fast bowler Dale Steyn and also one of the […]

The IPL 2010 season is about to start within the next couple of days. I thought I would publish the calendar for IPL matches to be played this season but I think it would be more prudent and helpful to have a calendar which was interactive as in something with which we could set reminders […]

After the early exit of Indian team from the tournament, commentators, media and critics got busy with finding out the “exact” cause of the poor performance of the team. Rightly so, when there are no more matches to be played by the Indian team, that is the only thing they can talk about.
