Indian Premier League T20 Cricket 2014

The seventh edition of the Indian Premier League T20 cricket starts from Wednesday, April 16 in the UAE. After 16 matches in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi because of general elections in India, the IPL circus will move back to India on May 2. 8 city franchises play each other in home and away manner before the play-offs.

The teams have been re-jigged this year with fresh player auctions, so every team starts on an even footing. Mumbai Indians are the defending champions, but Chennai Super Kings look strong again, as do Delhi Daredevils, Kings XI Punjab and Sunrisers Hyderabad.

We will have a 7 or 8 round competition here involving the 56 league matches, that's all!

Rules
- One point for a correct pick.
- Bonus point for sole picks (or 1 of 2 if more than 12 taking part).
- Further bonus point for picking a perfect or near perfect round (7/8, 8/8).
- Banker system is back. Bonus point for picking the right banker, minus 1 if your banker fails!
- Yet another bonus for predicting match with most runs right each round (no minus for getting this wrong grin ).
- Default if you forget to pick, wooden spoon score.
- Tiebreaker will be HoF v Spoons differential. If equal, total HoF count wins. If still equal, number of bonus points won.
- Deadline will be the start of the first game each round. The dates vary for each round, so I apologize for that

srini701, gtho4 and illiniman14 were on the podium last year, which attracted a "record" 14 participants. Will it be your turn this year?

Sign up here if you are interested please...Threads will be posted soon.

A Hearty welcome to the 11 who lined up for this year's IPL circus smile ... This is 3 less than last year, but LeoDaVinci is the only missing "regular" from the line up.

All the players went into a fresh auction before the start of the season (other than those "retained" by the franchises), which meant that all 8 IPL teams have a new look about them, and it a learning curve all over again for everybody smile

Kings XI Punjab got off the blocks real strong and look intimidating in their batting (not so their bowling, though), as do the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Superkings won one match each, as did Kolkata Knightriders and Delhi Daredevils, which meant only defending champions Mumbai Indians and Sunrisers Hyderabad are yet to taste victories after 8 matches .... the matches will be played in the Middle East in Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Dubai till May 2, when the teams will return to India and play on their real "home" grounds.

paper_aero and N-Bomb managed to pick 5 of the 8 matches here for the first HoFs, while gtho4 is off to his usual slow start with a spoon. ozzz2002 picked 2 bonus points this round while wwe84 and Sypher also made good with 1 each. None of us managed to pick the match with the most runs this round. The dreaded "banker" system will make all the difference to our standings though. Only 3 of us (including gtho4) landed our bankers in the first round, which meant that BxBarracuda finds himself the first occupant of our cellar.

Kings XI Punjab continue to impress in the early stages of this IPL, winning 2 more matches. Chennai Superkings are on track too, and won both the matches they played this round. Royal Challengers Bangalore let slip a winning match against Kolkata Knightriders and then imploded against Rajasthan Royals in their next. Sunrisers Hyderabad won their first match, which meant defending champions Mumbai Indians are the only team without a win after 15 league matches so far!

paper_aero and N-Bomb continue to set the pace in our comp here, and picked 5 of the matches played again, for their second HoF in a row! They are joined this time by gtho4 and Sypher in the HoF column.

We fared better in our banker picks this time, with 7 of us landing it, and only 4 failing to do so. None of us again picked the match with the most runs frown

BxBarracuda is like the Mumbai Indians here. He landed a spoon and also failed with his banker, slipping a little behind at the back frown

Chennai Super Kings continue to dominate IPl season 7, while Kings XI Punjab lost their first match of the season soon as the circus returned to India. The rest of the teams will continue to scramble between themselves for the two remaining play off berths.

paper_aero continues to dominate our comp here, and nearly picked the lot this round, missing only the Kings XI loss (unfortunately he made it his banker!). He lands a near perfect pick bonus to extend his lead at the top to 3 points now.

srini701 managed to pick the match with most runs this round, the first one this season in our comp. That extra bonus helps him move into sole second spot, ahead of Sypher.

N-Bomb defaulted and slipped down a little, as did illiniman14. BxBarracuda picked up a second consecutive spoon, but had company this round in the form of ozzz2002.

Midway through IPL season 7, it looks like Kings XI Punjab, Chennai Superkings and Rajasthan Royals will make it to the playoffs while Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knightriders will battle for the last playoff spot. Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians are desperately trying to stay afloat, while Delhi Daredevils have once again given up trying to fight!

We had a fascinating round here, with George95 almost picking the card this time. He only missed Bangalore's loss to Mumbai, but picked a bonus point for perfect picks, and jumps all the way from near bottom to near top in one round!

gtho4 and N-Bomb picked the match with most runs this round, and coupled with decent picks and bankers, they are also in the mix at the very top.

ozzz2002 got only one match right, and unfortunately also lost his banker match this round, which allowed BxBarracuda to sneak past him in the scramble at the bottom!

What happens if one gets a golden wood (which in turn would miss a banker)? Would they score zero or -1?

Kings XI Punjab slumped to a surprise defeat against Kolkata Knight Riders, an upset picked by one of us here, but otherwise continue to chase down mountain scores with impunity as they make sure of their berth in the playoffs. Chennai Super Kings have confirmed their place too and Rajasthan Royals have also more or else booked their spot. Kolkata Knight Riders are silently stringing some important wins, even as Sunrisers Hyderabad slumped to two home defeats in a row to put themselves in a tight spot frown

Last round George95 jumped up from nowhere to the top rungs, and this round it is the turn of Howie72. From 6th on the ladder he goes to the top, with a near perfect round! illiniman14 picks a bonus for getting the match with most runs right, while BxBarracuda got a sole pick bonus, to complete that column for the season.

paper_aero did not lodge tips and goes tumbling down the ladder...but after looking at George and Howie the last 2 rounds, don't be surprised if paper bounces right back to the top after the next round smile

The only constant on the field in this year's IPL seems to be Delhi Daredevils' form smile They have now lost seven matches in a row (Kevin Pietersen had a "point to prove" to the English Board, and he did that by captaining the Daredevils to just 1 win in 9 matches smile ). Kolkata Knight Riders have now won 5 in a row, while Mumbai Indians won 3 in a row. The Knight Riders are favorites to take the 4th playoff spot over the final set of 8 matches, even though 5 teams are still mathematically in with a chance!

We have had our most topsy-turvy competition ever out here. Sypher did what George95 and Howie72 did the last 2 rounds....zoom up from absolutely nowhere, to the top of the ladder! He picked 6 of the 8 matches, and half the bonus points this round (there were a massive 6 bonus points this round!) and from 6th last round, he now has a 2 point lead over Howie and gtho4 at the top!

BxBarracuda and wwe84 got 2 bonus points each as well, with the latter getting the match with most runs right this round. paper_aero and George95 take home their first spoons, but at least one of them is still in with a shout!

The last round of matches begin tonight, and given the way our standings are changing here, I believe this comp is still wide open. All you need a wild banker to land, and for others bankers' to fail and bingo...you are on the podium smile

There was plenty of drama in the final round of matches to keep the interest going till the final league match! Kolkata first snuffed out the chances of Royal Challengers Bangalore, but Sunrisers Hyderabad stunned Chennai to stay in the hunt. Chennai duly finished off the Royal Challengers, but led by a stunning knock from Yousuf Pathan, Kolkata Knight Riders not only put paid to the Sunrisers' chances, but also stole the second spot on the table. In the final match defending champions Mumbai Indians made a dramatic assault on the Rajasthan Royals bowling to chase down 190 in 14.4 overs and steal the final playoff spot mad So the top 4 who will contest the playoffs this year are Kings XI Punjab, Kolkata Knight Riders, Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians.

As a group we had our best round this season with 61 right picks out of 88 for a 70% success rate smile Howie72 missed only the upset loss of Chennai, but made up by picking the match with most runs this round (along with paper_aero). The 2 bonus points he earned this round proved the clincher for him as he stole the winner's medal off Sypher. Howie72 thus becomes the 3rd *active* player (after srini and paper) to win the IPL cricket comp here smile Sypher will have to wait another year! gtho4 completed the podium yet again with a clinical display!

This is one comp here in FT where the standings are determined not just by your picks, but by the random "banker" you select. The banker system again was the difference this year. Of the players who lodged picks for all round (56 matches), Howie was clearly the leader with 38 right picks. gtho4 had 35, while George95 had 34. srini701 and Sypher both picked 33/56. Once the banker points came into play, the standings changed. gtho4 and Sypher had the best banker picks amongst us this season (5 of 7), while Howie and George95 both had 4/7 and srini 3/7. ozzz2002 had just 1 banker right the whole season and it came for him in the final round! BxBarracuda chose not to lodge bankers after the first round (putting him back by 6 points straight away!).

paper_aero missed one round after dominating the first three rounds and this probably hurt his chances. He might otherwise well have been in the podium mix once again! wwe84 fought gamely and managed the most bonus points this season, while missing a round each also affected N-Bomb and illiniman14 frown

Thank you all for playing the competition and hope to see you in the Champions League T20 in September-October again. Till then, with Hearty Congratulations to Howie72, Sypher and gtho4 and with commiserations to the rest of us smile

Not sure if anybody's interested in knowing what actually happened to this comp, but here's what happened in the playoffs:

1. Kolkata Knight Riders beat Kings XI Punjab in the first qualifier to reach the final

2. Chennai Super Kings then beat Mumbai Indians in the eliminator

3. Kings XI Punjab then put the Chennai Super Kings out in the second Qualifier to reach the final

4. Kolkata Knight Riders capped off a glorious run (9 consecutive wins and counting!) to beat Kings XI in final by 3 wickets to win the IPL for the second time.
