IPL:Action begins in South Africa as Bangalore inflict Royal upset

12:55 PM

Hi everybody posting after a very long time due to exams and vacations
But here I am back doing what i love - blogging
This time again its cricket and the talk of the season IPL, I'm too engrossed in IPL to even talk about anything else.

Yeah IPL is definitely the talk of the season if you dont believe me then read this IPL website 4th most visited in the world, and if you have a twitter account just log or search for #IPL to see almost every one tweeting about IPL could cricket really be the worlds most popular sport? hmm waiting for that day..
So the second season of IPL has begun though its not happening in India thanx to elections which i believe is plain nonsense (sorry my personal view) and modi believes  IPL has stretched its wings to a new territory. The relocated IPL2 is already under way and its definitely a hit as cricket already unaffected by recession has been warmly recieved and day 1 just left me asking for more.

In the first match Mumbai Indians V/s chennai super kings mumbai beat Chennai by 19 runs in IPL opener in Cape Town. I am really happy coz I am a very big sachin fan and Sachin today batted like god making 59 winning himself man of the match award

In the 2nd match Bangalore Royal Challengers V/S Rajesthan Royals an well guess what RCB won it and won how they trashed the defending champions in royal style, having had a bad start with bat i'd given up hope when the score read something around 65-4 but only shimmer of hope was Dravid and yes he did perform and deservedly got man of the match award proving all oldie critics wrong.
Rajasthan lost by 75 runs scoring only 58 the lowest ever IPL score, also there was only One Four in their IPL Innings and Kumble also set the record for Most Economic Bowling. Warne terms the defeat embarrassing.

The first day of the IPL2 match was thoroughly enjoyable, (especially coz i am cheering for RCB) 2 upsets on the very first day proving once again that cricket is a game of uncertainty and what makes ipl even more exiting is the fact that both the teams who started with defeats in the first season, have started this year's campaign with comfortable wins and the two finalists have been humbled.
And for those who think T20 is for youngsters  Sachin and Dravid are MOMs for day 1 of IPL II, with Anil kumble claiming 5 wickets to get second best bowling figures in IPL, Iconic Players rocked day 1 proving No matter what the canvas, it is always the hand of the artist that matters.
Other than cricket cheerleaders were on top of their job the opening ceremony was a *yawn* i mean ok types but not as good n great as the Bangalore one last year. Bollywood entertainment was visibly missing.

Top seeds lost.. that makes IPL interesting this year its going to be fun to watch this time!
Lights, action, music and upsets in IPL openers  ensure smashing start to IPL 2!!!!

so keep watching...
