My Views @ IPL-3 (so far):

If you knew that I’m crazy about cricket, I’m sure you would have already wondered to see my blog having no post on IPL so far, though the season 3 has started long while ago. As I write this, 'Deccan Chargers' is taking on 'Mumbai Indians'. These are the two teams which I supported during the last edition, held in South Africa. To my surprise, to everyone’s surprise, Chargers had their winning moment to play this edition of IPL as the defending champions.

This time I have strictly decided that I would go with Mumbai Indians, not for any other better reason than Sachin Tendulkar (and of course his men). So far so good, I supported both MI as well as my home team DC. But now with this match between both of them, I’m getting realized that it is never very easy to support a team when they take on your home team. Any way, I’m happy that I’m doing it though it is little difficult for my emotions.

My Views @ IPL-3 (so far):

** Sourav Ganguly, the captain of SRK’s KKR, has become confident with his team’s steady successes, instead of being confident and inspiring his team mates since the start of the tourney, which is the very first thing that is expected from any captain.

** Deccan Chargers’ home ground is not Hyderabad any more for this edition; the crowd has already proved Lalit Modi’s decision as wrong by always supporting their team of interests. And now between MI and DC @ Mumbai, it is getting in ugly there.

** Well done Rajasthan Royals; Shane Warne must be the happy man having his team working wonders though their key players are injured and unavailable.

** Super Kings and Dare Devils, I would just say “All the best”, I’m not so interested to say anything more.

** I‘m happy to see the Indians shining well; Yusuf Pathan, Murali Vijay, Sourabh Tiwari, Dinesh Karthik, Harbhajan Singh, Vinay Kumar, Rayudu, Naman Ojha, Manish Pandey and of course the legendry Sachin. I wish India would do well in the T20 world cup’ 2010 at the Carrabian Islands.

** To be frank, I have still not understood the scope of the coach of any team. Teams are playing with almost no break to get trained; and what are the coaches doing more than shifting the luggage?

** Indian T20 squad’s announcement has come at the right time. I think this must be the last chance for my very favorite Rohit Sharma. He has to play well for another chance from now. It is not just about flying with team, rather its all about being with the team makes one successful; I hope he would understand this.

** Lalit Modi has not been seen very rocking this time, he must know the reason!

** Injured Indian players must do a come back before the semifinals, to have a confirmation on their fitness before pack their luggage for the T20 world cup. They must remember that Sehwag’s episode during last T20 world cup has not been forgotten yet. The Indian captain has guts, no doubt; but he has to show this time to avoid another ugly incident of sending another Indian player home saying “he was injured during the IPL itself. He knew it, we knew it, but it was not expressed…”bla…bla…bla…

** And finally, All the best to Mumbai Indians. I wish I see Sachin lifting the coveted trophy this time.

These are the points that I would like to share for now. I will regularly update you with my thoughts about IPL from now onwards. Signing off for now. Please take care of yourselves and keep smiling.

yeah .. even i am supporter of both MI and Dc for the same reason you hav mentioned.

3 days back, i have been to odyssy where i filled a form for lucky draw prize where we need to predict the winner.I marked Mumbai Indians(I didnt show it to any of my friends).Then while i am on the way back home asked my friends what did they pot for the winner everyone opted MI The reason is same ,The God ,The Sachin.

One more wish of Mine is WorldCup.We should win a world Cup before sachin retires.
