Indian Premier League T20 Cricket 2018

The 11th edition of the Indian Premier League T20 cricket starts from Saturday, April 7 with 8 teams playing each other home and away before the play-offs. 2018 sees a return of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals after missing 2 years (Pune Rising Supergiants and Gujarat Lions exit the scene). All the 8 teams have been reshuffled following a major auction in January, so everybody starts on the same footing.

We had 8 editions of the IPL in our comps here (skipping the World Cup years of 2011 and 2015) and this will be the 9th running of our comp here. N-Bomb staged the greatest last round coup of any comp here last year to snatch the title. gtho4 and wwe84 completed the 2017 podium. gtho4 has finished among the medals the last 4 years in a row now.

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 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 2018 edition of the IPL T20 cricket competition. 10 of us lined up at the starting gates, minus defending champion N-Bomb, but with George95 and LeoDaVinci back in the line up.

With all the teams revamped for the season, it was expected to be a level playing field and so it has turned out to be for the first set of matches. The chasing teams seem to be winning more easily, no matter where the matches are played (not much of a home advantage to start with). More on specific matches in later rounds.

George95 and Elftwinkle are off to a good start, picking 5 of the 8 matches each. We managed 7 bonus points in the opening round, including 2 for getting the match with most runs right. We had a mixed bag for our banker matches (this is what may eventually decide the placings here at the end grin )

And the musical chairs have begun smile Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab won 2 matches each this round, but almost all the teams lost as much as they won...and none of the "favourites" (or those we pick at least wink ) seem to be winning...we ended with a measly 26 right picks out of 72 this round with 25% of them being picked by one man alone shocked

gtho4 made a HUGE splash this round, picking 6/8 correctly and getting another 3 sole pick bonus points. He added a banker point as well (he missed only the most runs match this round). All this means he zoomed up the table all the way from the bottom, into the lead!

srini701 got only 1 match correct this round. Luckily it turned out to be his banker match as well. George95 also picked only 1 match correct this round. Unfortunately, it was NOT his banker match...ozzz2002 defaulted the round and finds himself at the bottom because of the poor show by the spooners.

Some teams are slowly beginning to assert themselves around the half way stage of the league, while a few others are struggling. Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kings XI Punjab seem a cut above the rest, while Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils are clearly struggling to get their best XI right. Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals are the mid-table spoilers at this point. Plenty of matches still to go and teams in the lower half of the table can play huge spoil sports on any day.

gtho4 seems to have no such problems. He again picked 6 of the 8 matches and has skipped away to a decent 4 point lead. The rest of us are all pushing and shoving each other in the middle. ozzz2002 and illiniman14 (default this round) are bringing up the rear. None of us managed to get the match with the most runs right this round and we continue to have mixed luck with our banker matches...

Sunrisers Hyderabad have become adept at defending low scores. They have done it 3 matches in a row now and are just one win away from confirming their playoff spot (with 6 matches to play). Chennai Super Kings are another side in form, though as the oldest side in competition, they are slipping up here and there. They lead the table with each team left with 5 or 6 matches each. Mumbai Indians are almost out after losing their last match to RC Bangalore. Kings XI Punjab had a week off and will return to action this next round. They need a couple more wins to cement their place in the top 4. Kolkata Knight Riders and Rajasthan Royals continue to blow hot and cold and it's between these 2 teams and maybe Bangalore for the last playoff spot, though Delhi Daredevils are still hanging in there. This next round of 8 matches should clear the picture for more teams.

gtho4 increased his lead at the top of our standings by a further point. Everyone of us picked Chennai to beat Delhi and 6 of us had it as our banker, so most of us are good on the banker front this round. That match was also the highest scoring one this round and none of us got that point. ozzz2002 takes the round's honours (with a sole pick bonus as well) but illiniman14 seems to have lost interest in the comp. He defaulted again and is firmly in the cellar now.

Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals are fighting to stay afloat. RC Bangalore lost top Sunrisers Hyderabad and that effectively has ended their campaign for this year. Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils can at best play spoilsports to a couple of other teams over the last few matches, that's all. Sunrisers have all but sealed their place in the playoffs with another superb defense of a lot total at home.

ElfTwinkle pulled a rabbit out of her hat, picking 7/8 this round to close the gap at the top. gtho4 still leads, but if you remember last year when N-Bomb turned a 9 point deficit around in the final round alone, this lead will not worry those of us behind gtho4 at this stage wink grin

I had to discount the opening match of the round for George95 and LeoDaVinci as they lodged their picks almost 24 hours late.

It doesn't make sense to award "sole pick" bonus points to 2 people when 8 people lodge their picks frown But this will be a topic for debate for next year and we live this season the way it is. This means a whopping 8 points went out this round alone as sole picks, leaving gtho4 uneasy at the top of the ladder smile ElfTwinkle has joined him there, and even wwe84 is in with a shot at the podium though he is 5 points adrift!

With Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings the only 2 teams confirmed for the play-offs and Delhi Daredevils the only team eliminated, there is a mad scramble among 5 teams that are still in with a shot of taking the last 2 play-off spots. Kolkata beats everybody at home except Mumbai, and that trend continued this year too; Rajasthan surprised Chennai at home and Mumbai away to keep their hopes alive; and Kings XI caved in meekly to Royal Challengers Bangalore....all matches landing us bonus points here....2 people also managed to get the match with the most runs right this round. George95 was the only unfortunate soul to lose his banker match this round...

Makes for a fascinating final round again, with changes in scoring system up for discussions only before the 2019 edition...

I was waiting for the play-offs to be completed before posting the final results....Chennai Super Kings marked their return to the IPL after 2 years in style, hammering the Sunrisers Hyderabad first in the qualifier and then in the grand finals, to lift the IPL trophy for the 3rd time. This was their 7th final in the 9 years they played! Kolkata Knightriders beat Rajasthan Royals in the eliminator, but lost to Sunrisers Hyderabad in the second qualifier.

1. Qualifier 1: Chennai Super Kings squeaked past Sunrisers thanks to Faf Du Plessis' brilliant innings at the fag end.
2. Eliminator: Kolkata Knightriders won a match they should have lost, against Rajasthan Royals after the Royals showed everyone how not to bat in the last 10 overs of a T20 match.
3. Qualifier 2: Rashid Khan was superman, batting, bowling and catching and he single-handedly beat Kolkata Knighriders to take the Sunrisers into the finals.
4. Grand Final: Sunrisers put up a competitive score, but Shane Watson blew them away with a century to take the Super Kings to a well deserved title.

Now if only those damn Sunrisers played one of their last 2 league matches differently, our podium here would have looked totally different to what it finally is mad wwe84 managed a superb final round, with a banker and sole pick bonus thrown in, and he leapt out of nowhere to take home the silver, retaining it from last year. gtho4 held on to his dear spot on the podium for a 5th year in a row, holding off srini701 on a better tie-break, for a bronze, same as last year. ElFTwinkle replaced N-Bomb as the only change from last year's podium, with some consistent showing over the last 3 rounds. Congrats then to ElfTwinkle, wwe84 and gtho4 and commiserations to the rest of us.

A sincere thank you to the faithful lot who continue to take part. We shall make some changes to the scoring next year and see where that will take us smile

Until the next cricket comp starts then....
