Indian Premier League T20 Cricket 2012

After a break in 2011 for the ICC Cricket World Cup, the tipping Comp for the Indian Premier League T20 cricket is back. 9 city franchises playing one another in home and away manner for 45 days before the play-offs. Matches start from Wednesday, April 4 and the last round starts Tuesday May 15.

Defending Champions Chennai Super Kings, last year's runners-up Royal Challengers Bangalore, 3rd place Mumbai Indians will be hot favorites and challenging them will be the 2 former Champions Rajasthan Royals and Deccan Chargers along with Delhi Daredvils, Kolkata Knight Riders, Pune Warriors and Kings XI Punjab

We will have a 9 round competition here involving the 72 league matches, that's all! No last minute rushes for play-offs this year.

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 :)).
- Default if you forget to pick, wooden spoon score.
- Tiebreaker will be HoF v Spoons. Largest margin wins, or if the margin is equal, total HoF count wins.
- Deadline will be the start of the first game each round. The dates vary for each round, so I apologize for that frown

We had 9 runners for the 2008 comp (won by jonnowales), 12 for the 2009 comp (MrFox and srini701 joint winners) but only 8 turned up for the 2010 comp won by srini701 (with Sypher and Copago making up the podium).

Do we have any takers for the comp this year? We will have the comp only if at least 7 sign-up.

A hearty welcome to the 11 brave tipsters who joined me for IPL 2012 smile...An especially warm welcome to IPL newcomers wwe84 and illiniman14...hope you will enjoy the comp as much as I do running it!

The IPL itself is off to a dull and lousy start, with NO interesting or close matches in the first 8 played to date. Defending Champions and strong favorites this year Chennai Super Kings lost the opener at home to another strong favorites Mumbai Indians, but bounced back to win their second match. Mumbai Indians themselves lost the second match at home to Pune Warriors, who seem the early pace setters with 2 wins out of 2. Rajasthan Royals also won both their matches at home, while another pre-tournament favorites Kolkata Knightriders lost both their first 2 games!

N-Bomb and srini701 picked 5 of the 8 games right and are off to an early lead, but both lost their banker matches, while wwe84 picked only 3 right, but managed 2 solo picks in them to stay close to the top!

7 of us managed to get our bankers wrong (with 5 of us going for that Mumbai-Pune match frown ) and none of us got the match with the most cumulative runs this round....we will pick up on both counts for sure smile

illiniman14 and ozzz2002 get the first spoons....Both got only one match right each, but while ozzz managed to land his banker, illiniman14 lost there too, keeping him in the basement after round 1.

Round 2 starts today and everybody seems to have lodged their tips...just to get this right, any late tips lodged after the matches start mean you score zero for the games that have started....better try and NOT have them as bankers or your pick for most runs!

Word is out in the Indian press after it became known that an American by FT screen name of BxBarracuda CORRECTLY picked 6 of 7 matches of the Indian Premier League! Last heard, some bookmakers were desperately trying to get contact details of this person grin

Meanwhile here in FT, Ozzz2002 was just 1 ball away (in a match lasting 240 deliveries) from hitting the rest of the field for a huge six!!! He was the only one here to tip Deccan Chargers to beat Mumbai Indians and he picked it as his banker to boot! And when the Mumbai Indians needed 3 runs off the last ball, I thought this surely was a huge coup....Alas! It was not to be and Ozzz still finds himself at the rear end of the table frown

BxBarracuda jumped all the way to the top of the table, courtesy that monstrous picks and he is 1 ahead of LeoDaVinci, who also picked 5 right and also landed his banker for the second round running!

Also getting their bankers right for a second round running are gtho4, paper_aero and Sypher, while srini701 and wwe84 failed for the second round in a row on their banker matches cry

illiniman14 became the first person this season to snag a point for correctly the match with most runs right....well done, sir!

There does not seem to be a pattern in this year's IPL yet. Teams are not exactly winning in a consistent manner and that adds an element of suspense to the whole proceedings...No team is pulling away from the rest of the pack at this stage frown

The banker system here in our comp is playing havoc with the scores grin cry Only 2 players (Ozzz2002 and Howie72) landed their bankers this round, while srini701 and wwe84 are still looking for their first banker points!

On the positive side, wwe84 joined BxBarracuda at the top with a near perfect round! He only failed to pick the Kolkata-Kings XI match, which none of us got anyway...

N-Bomb managed to get only match right this round, but poor guy lost his banker match and so ended the round exactly where he started it...at the same score and a few notches down the ladder confused Am just waiting to see someone actually end the round with a score fewer than they started it...wouldn't that be fun smilee

paper_aero is this round's hero with 6 right picks out of 8 and he jumps into a tussle for second spot behind wwe84 at the top of the ladder. One more right pick and he would have been joint leader!

Mixed round for the rest of us, but we seem to be getting smarter in picking our bankers....all except srini701, who remains the ONLY player yet to land his banker after 4 rounds! mad

illiniman14 lands a sole pick bonus for picking Pune's win over Delhi...he should have backed that match for most runs too...

gtho4 bags his first spoon with just 2 right picks, but then he still managed to land his banker...

Starting a "Dg_Dave corner" from this round: The tipping comp organizer is 4-1 in his picks with his home team Deccan Chargers! They are 0-5 at this stage in the competition :-) Dunno what made me pick them to beat Kolkata the other day confused

2 Matches got washed out because of heavy rains and 6 of us managed to pick bankers in these 2 matches...as a result, the 6 neither lose nor gain any banker points...

"What dumb luck!" cursed srini701 as he compiled this, as he CONTINUES to lose points on his banker picks...Who would have thought Kings XI would beat Chennai in the latter's background? Well, George95 did pick that upset and so he scores a bonus point, while srini701 is now 0-5 on his banker picks this season mad

For 4 rounds we had just 1 right pick for the match with Most runs...this round 4 people (paper_aero, Howie72, LeoDaVinci and George95) jumped on that board (indicated with an "r" on the table). That and coupled with banker points have pushed both paper_aero and Leo to the top of an extremely tight ladder. wwe84 managed only 1 right this round for the spoon and he drops down to 3rd place.

"Dave's corner": The tipping comp organizer is now 4-2 in his picks with his home team Deccan Chargers! They are 1-5 at this stage in the competition after a shock win over Pune this round, with one match washed out.

I apologize over the delay in posting this round's results...see, even I am not consistent in this year's IPL smile The ONLY constant in the IPL this year seems to be the Deccan Chargers and the thrashing they are getting at everybody's hands smile

3 people (LeoDaVinci, Sypher and Howie72) picked 6 of the 8 matches right and also got their banker matches correct and you can see them all at the top of the ladder! Leo has opened up a nice 3 point cushion at the top, but after him, 4 people are jostling for the second spot with another 2 just another 2 points behind!

3 people (srini701, BxBarracuda and ozzz2002) picked this round's spoons with 3 right picks, but while Bx and ozzz had the consolation of landing their bankers, srini continues to fumble with his bankers picks....he is now 0-6 this season on the banker front mad cry

N-Bomb got this round's match with most runs right and picks up a bonus points for his effort smile

"Dave's corner": The tipping comp organizer is now 5-4 in his picks with his home team Deccan Chargers! They are 2-7 at this stage in the competition after 2 shock wins over Pune, and one wash out.

For the first time this season we had not one, but TWO matches that everybody got right!!!! To top that one piece of statistic, for the FIRST time this season we had everybody get their bankers right! Yes.....srini701 finally got a banker match right on his 7th attempt, but it didn't really do him any good...he's still rooted to the bottom smile

I hope LeoDaVinci will NOT have to wonder when this comp's over if missing this round was a mistake! He may well have scored more than the default he got and may have increased his lead at the top....as it is, paper_aero picked this round's HoF and joined LeoDaVinci at the top of the ladder.

ozzz2002 got 2 bonus points this round....one for a solo pick (along with wwe84) and another for correctly picking the match with most runs...well done, sir!

"Dave's corner": The tipping comp organizer is now 7-4 in his picks with his home team Deccan Chargers! They are 2-9 at this stage in the competition with one match washed out.

The IPL is headed for a REAL tight finish this year, both on the field and in our tipping comp here! On the field, Delhi Daredevils look set to be in the top 4, but after that, there are 6 teams scrambling for the remaining 3 playoff spots...the last round of 9 matches will decide the final placings and it might well go down to the wire!

Over here, something tells me paper_aero will be on the podium, but after that there are at least 6 others who can well get on to the podium!!!! Any 2 from Sypher to gtho4 in the standings (and maybe with a little luck, BxBarracuda too) could on the podium by the time this comp's over smile

paper_aero picked his second HoF in a row and opened up a 2 point lead at the top.....most of us got our bankers right this round, except illiniman14, who also ended up with the round's spoon...LeoDaVinci also lost his banker match, but made up in a little way by getting a bonus point for picking the match with most runs.

"Dave's corner": The tipping comp organizer is now 9-4 in his picks with his home team Deccan Chargers! They are 2-11 at this stage in the competition with one match washed out.

This season, the Deccan Chargers seem to be playing only the wrong teams smile They are scoring heavily, but don't have the bowling to defend any sort of score frown
