Indian premier league season 7 has been the most dramatic off all the seasons before it started with the backdrop of spot fixing in season 6 which almost ruined the image, big names were involved in it players owners all were questioned, than this year it was the general elections that spoilt the fun bcci was forced to shift it to UAE for first half of the season and without any big inaugural ceremony the season kicked off, biggest surprise was that none of the finalist from the last year ipl Kolkata knight riders and Mumbai Indians were able to win their first couple of matches and other teams like Delhi daredevils and Royal challengers Bangalore failed to make a mark and slammed down the league table whereas teams like Chennai Hyderabad Rajasthan all made steady starts but to everyone surprise this season was hit by the Punjab team winning all their initial games they made the cricket pandits think again who were not even keeping them in the race of the play off. Now as this season reaches his mid-point the picture is yet not clear except Delhi who under Kevin Peterson are out of the league they are right in the bottom of the list, whereas Rajasthan royals, Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Night riders, Royal challengers Bangalore and Hyderabad sun-risers are making their best to reach to the play offs. Mumbai the last year champions under Rohit Sharma hasn’t yet found the right combination for their team and still in no mans land, Kolkata has finally found some momentum with their captain Gautam Gambhir coming back in form though they have lost few close match but they are still hunt, Rajasthan royals under Shane Watson have showed glimpses of good performance but still not getting momentum in that they needed to repeat previous year performances their foreign players have not yet fired, Royal challengers Bangalore and Sun-risers Hyderabad both are on the same side of pendulum both the captains Virat kohli and Shikhar dhawan are not in their best of the nicks both of them trying different position in the batting order but failing to find their nick and that’s also affecting their team performance. While the dark horses of the season Kings eleven Punjab have performed amazingly well taking everyone by surprise they are on the top with both their domestic and international performing exceptionally well captain George Bailey has lead the side well getting support from the aussie sensation and presently the holder of orange cap Glenn Maxwell and Killer Miller from south Africa local players have performed exceptionally veeru joining the party as well. As it has been the trend over past 6 season Chennai Superkings has been solid throughout with a balanced bowling and batting line up, sharing the top position with the kings. As the season race takes the final turn all teams are geared up for the play-offs but this season has seen the changing trends players like Maxwell, Miller, and AB Devillers have changed the batting style and Indian bowlers fighting for the purple cap both Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Mohit Sharma are up for the challenge. The tournament is still open all top seven teams fighting for the top positions it will be interesting to see who will lift the trophy this time will it be the dark horse Punjab or the roaring lions of Chennai who will keep their reaching-to-final habit or will it be Mumbai Rajasthan Kolkata Bangalore Hyderabad who will take their chances.

I have a simple take towards life, don’t want to make it complicated. I love making friends, chatting, listening to people (cause I feel people have lost the art of listening) and a die hard cricket lover. I am not a party animal but a family person cause friends and family are the best thing in ur life, love experimenting so I have tried everything that comes my way cooking, sports, photography, event management, tele-marketing, content writer, radio host, student producer (I might not be best at all but I have tried all ). If there is so much to learn around why to stop yourselves grab every opportunity that comes your way “mein daudna chahta hu udna chahta hu girna chahta hu bus rukna … nhi bus rukna nhi chahta”
