IPL-2 starts with a bang

The second edition of the Indian Premier League started yesterday in South Africa with 2 huge upsets.  Last year’s underperformers, Mumbai Indians beat last year’s runner’s up, Chennai Super Kings.

And in the 2nd match of the night, the so called “test team” of the IPL, Bangalore Royal Challengers beat defending champions Rajasthan Royals.  The other 4 teams in the competition (Punjab Kings, Delhi Daredevils, Kolkata Knight Riders and Deccan Chargers) will be seen in action today (Sunday).

As usual, am rooting for the Deccan Chargers inspite of them ending up with the wooden spoon last time round.  Cant help it.  Once a Hyderabadi, always a Hyderabadi 😀
