Indian Premier League T20 Cricket 2017

The tenth Indian Premier League T20 cricket starts from Wednesday, April 5 with 8 teams playing each other home and away before the play-offs. Sunrisers Hyderabad start as the defending champions, but Royal Challengers Bangalore would desperately want to lay their hands on the trophy as well.

We had 7 editions of the IPL in our comps here (except in the World Cup years of 2011 and 2015) and this will be the 8th running of our comp here. gtho4, George95 and paper_aero were on the last podium, which attracted 11 participants. gtho4 has finished on the podium the last 3 years in a row.

We will have a 7 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).
- 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! ... This is what makes this comp different from any other comp here on the site wink
- Yet another bonus for predicting match with most runs right each round (no minus for getting this wrong smile ).
- 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 please note the days/dates carefully.

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

Welcome to the 7th FT edition of the IPL T20 cricket. 9 of us lined up on the starting blocks (George95 and Sypher missing from last year's line up) and nothing seems to have changed from 2016. gtho4 led the comp from start to finish last year, and he has started serenely out front this year too....with a sole pick bonus point to boot...he seems to love this comp (podium finishes last 3 years in a row) and the rest of us are in for a lot of catching up to do confused illiniman14 and ozz2002 made the right noises to start too; illiniman14 was the only one to get the match with the most runs right and ozz2002 had a sole pick bonus as well.

N-Bomb and ElfTwinkle take the first spoons for the season, but they are not in the cellar....paper_aero got one better than them but he was the only one of us here to get his banker match wrong....welcome to the crazy world of the IPL tipping comp grin

Defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad started strongly, winning both their matches rather easily. They seem to have a formidable bowling line up. Kings XI Punjab also won both their matches with their captain Glen Maxwell blazing away with the bat. The rest of the teams are struggling a bit with their combinations with many "star" players injured and out of action the first two weeks. Things will hopefully start picking up this week (De Villiers returned to action with a bang though his RCB lost to Kings XI last night).

Mumbai Indians had a good week winning 3 matches, Kolkata Knight Riders played 2 this week at home and won both, while Sunrisers Hyderabad lost 2 on the trot on road. There were a couple of wins for Delhi Daredevils too, while RPS Pune and Gujarat Lions had a mixed round.

We welcome back George95 this round but ozzz2002 went missing. Only 3 of us managed to get our bankers right this round -- wwe84, ElfTwinkle and paper_aero. All 3 of them also managed to get sole pick bonus points this round (along with N-Bomb and gtho4). wwe84 and ElfTwinkle also managed to get the most right this round! This impressive show puts them both right on top of our topsy-turvy comp after round 2. A bunch of us took home the cutlery.

Mumbai Indians continue to win, Kolkata Knight Riders and Sunrisers Hyderabad are still going up and down, while the other 5 teams are mostly unpredictable, leaning more towards "likely to lose" than win...

N-Bomb and paper_aero had massive rounds, picking 6/8 right. Only 2 of us (srini701 and N-Bomb) got our bankers right...different matches. It didn't help that 7 of the 10 chose the one match we ALL got wrong, to be our banker match frown srini701 and N-Bomb also got the match with the most runs right this round...all those extra points mean N-Bomb goes right up to the top of the table, only 1 behind our leader wwe84. ozzz2002 returned from last round's default getting only 1 point (which also got nullified because of a wrong banker).

The Royal Challengers Bangalore are imploding in a spectacular fashion. They managed to get bowled out for 49 chasing a 130 against Kolkata. And after their loss to Gujarat, they have just 2 wins this season so far. Kolkata Knight Riders are keeping pace with Mumbai Indians for the top spot in the league, winning all at home so far. Mumbai Indians have lost just 2 matches so far and are looking the most stable team of the lot, along with Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata.

Unfortunately for a majority of us here (7/10), Mumbai Indians chose the wrong match to lose this round, costing 7 of us our banker matches for the second round in a row mad wwe84 managed not to lose a point for his "banker" as the RCB-Sunrisers tie got washed out without a single ball bowled (at least he didn't go one back). That meant only 2 of us (the two Georges) won their banker matches this round. gtho4 also had a spectacular round of picks, and he leaps right back into the lead. ozzz2002 also had a fine round of picks there for a share of the HoF. wwe84 takes the spoon for the round.

wwe84 blitzed the field this round with a set of near perfect picks shocked Two of those picks earned him sole pick bonus points and all these mean he is firmly entrenched at the top of the ladder now. illiniman14 had a great round of picks as well (plus a bonus for getting the match with the most runs right) and normally would have been the topic of this round's honours, but for the wwe84 storm grin

After 2 rounds of collective investments in our bankers led to disastrous results, we spread our investments around this round and they paid off most handsomely smile 7 of us got our banker matches right...only srini701 and N-Bomb failed their bankers, while ozzz2002 forgot to lodge a banker match.

Rising Pune Supergiant were the flavor of the week, winning 3 matches on the trot to push themselves into the 3rd spot on the ladder...Mumbai Indians keep finding new winners and they booked their place in the playoffs with 2 more wins....there are jokes going around now about the RCB's inability to beat anyone at all confused

Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Rising Pune Supergiant are all confirmed for the play-offs. Sunrisers Hyderabad should make it too, but Kings XI Punjab can pip them to the 4th spot if they win their last 2 matches and Hyderabad lose their last match. The rest of the teams can at best play spoilsport in the last set of matches.

wwe84 and gtho4 are guaranteed to finish on our podium here. illiniman14, paper_aero, and N-Bomb should fight for the bronze. srini, Elf and Howie will need huge miracles to get on to the podium. George95 and ozzz2002 can only look forward to the next edition of the comp. wwe84 continues to have a good run, while N-Bomb threw his hat into the contender's ring with 2 sole pick bonus points this round.

10 possible points from the last round (with more possible through sole picks)....will there be any miracles? Let's see how the last week pans out smile

This has seriously got to rank among the greatest upsets, or comebacks in tipping comps...or at least it is, in the last 6 years in any comp or sport I have done here as an organizer on this site. N-Bomb turned around a 9-point deficit in the final round to win this comp by a point (in a round where we tipped 7 matches) shocked shocked !

All the stars aligned absolutely perfectly for our champ here this round. He won as many as 8 points in the first 3 matches (3 correct + 3 sole pick bonus + most runs + banker) as he went for broke in either what was a "nothing to lose" picks, or a superbly calculated assault! wwe84 could still have won this comp had he got either 1 more match right this round, or even won by a 2-point margin had he just got his banker match right too sick !! It was not to be, and just turned out to be a dream week in every way for N-Bomb, who wins his 5th comp for 2017 (from 14 comps to date)! Hats off to you if you are reading this, sir smilee

gtho4 takes the bronze, the 4th year in a row he has finished on the podium in the IPL....for both N-Bomb and wwe84, it's their first first time on podium in the IPL.

As for the matches, Kings XI Punjab had to win their last 3 matches to make it to the play-offs. They beat both Kolkata and Mumbai, but ran out of steam against Pune in the final match. Kolkata had to beat Mumbai to finish top 2. They lost at home for the first time in 13 matches (since 2013), though they did make it to the top 4. Sunrisers Hyderabad also made it comfortably in the end. So we have Mumbai playing Pune in the first qualifier and then Hyderabad taking on Kolkata in the eliminator. The loser of the first qualifier plays the winner of the eliminator in the second qualifier.

Thank you all for playing the comp, and hearty congratulations to the podium.

Till the next comp then...
