IPL LeagueIPL League

Well the tournament has begun and looking at first few matches. I would stick my neck out and try and make a few predictions. Well looks like CSK, DD and KXIP are the best bets for semifinals. And a toss up between MI, RCB, and DC for the last berth. However, RR and KKR look weaker in my analysis.

Chennai Super Kings – MS Dhoni, Flintoff, Hayden, Raina – 14.25
(others: Badrinath, Balaji, Fleming, Gony, Ntini)

Delhi Daredevils – Gambhir, Sehwag, Vettori – 13.5
(others: Collingwood, DeVilliers, Dilshan, McGrath, Maharoof, Warner)

Kings XI Mohali – Yuvraj, Brett Lee, Shaun Marsh, Sangkarra – 13
(others: Bopara, Katich, Hopes, Pathan)

Mumbai Indians – Jaysuriya, Tendulkar, Harbhajan, Zaheer – 11.75
(others: Bravo, Duminy, Malinga)
