Indian Premier League T20 Cricket 2020

The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League T20 cricket finally starts from Saturday, September 19 in the UAE this year due to the COVID situation in India. Our Competition here (the 10th running) returns after a year's break (we don't do IPL comp in World Cup years). All 8 teams play each other twice before the play-offs. Mumbai Indians start as defending champions.

N-Bomb had staged the greatest last round coup of any comp here to win the title in 2017 but chose not to defend his title in 2018. ElfTwinkle won the last IPL comp here, but the more interesting stat is: gtho4 has finished among the medals 5 years in a row in this comp.

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 IPL-2020 tipping competition. We have our lowest turnout in a decade in this comp, as only 7 lined up on the starter blocks frown ...The first IPL comp in 2008 had 9 participants and it was 8 in 2010, but participation was always in double digits the last 10 years....oh well...if 8 teams can play the richest cricket tournament on the planet amongst themselves, surely 7 people can play a fun comp here figuring out who hits the dart board the best too smile

wwe84 is off to a flier in terms of picks, getting 5 right, but he is not in lead....ozzz2002 got 4 right, and one of them was a solo pick and the other was a banker match, so with 2 bonus points, he's the first leader this season. srini701 was the only other guy to get a banker right this round (only because Delhi won a one-over eliminator). None of us got the point for the match with the most runs.

All teams are returning to cricket after a long break, so their form is random. Player injuries will be common and that will mean it will be tougher picking teams here on the basis of their player strength this year. Chennai beat defending champions Mumbai in their opener, but lost the next match. Kings XI were unlucky to lose to Delhi but made up by upsetting RC Bangalore next. Bangalore themselves beat Sunrisers quite handily in their opener.

George95 joined us this round, but forgot to lodge a banker or most runs match. No worries....None of us got our bankers right anyway, so its a steady -1 to all of us in that column grin ozzz2002 and paper_aero did not lodge picks, but both managed to retain their respective positions from the last round...srini701 missed the most runs bonus by 10 runs this round.

Matches at Sharjah seem to be run feasts right now. All teams have won matches and seem to be settling in their team combinations. No team will probably dominate so its all good. Ben Stokes is available for Rajasthan Royals from October 11, so do watch out if he can make a difference to their fortunes smile

We had one of our finest rounds in this weird little comp in many years. LeoDaVinci had a perfect round, paper_aero a near perfect round, and another 2 of us missed only a couple of matches. Every match had at least 2 or 3 right picks. For the first time this season, we got the match with the most runs correct (LeoDaVinci) and only 2 of us (srini701 and wwe84) missed our bankers.

The 3 bonus points (banker, runs and perfect round) catapults LeoDaVinci to a comfortable 5 point lead at the top. paper_aero gets 2 bonus points (near perfect round and banker) and zooms up the ladder as well. ozzz2002 was the only one with a "normal" round and with is first spoon, slips down.

Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals are beginning to look better than the rest of the field. And though every team has wins, Kings XI Punjab and maybe even Chennai Super Kings may find it difficult to reach the playoffs from here.

The Mumbai Mean Machine rolls on, notching more wins this round. Royal Challengers Bangalore are winning a lot more than they lose this year too, while Kings XI suddenly blows hot one day and then goes to sleep the next 2-3 matches smile ... Sunrisers and Rajasthan Royals are probably useless teams this year grin

LeoDaVinci is threatening to run away with this season's comp by a record margin. He makes it a hat-trick of wins and for the second round in a row, has picked correctly the match with the most runs...One consolation in this funny comp is that it's possible to score in negative, so others still have a sniff of a chance (N-Bomb turned around a 7 or 8 point deficit into a win in the final round of this comp a couple of seasons ago). gtho4, who has been on the podium in the last 5 seasons, is in danger of missing out, unless he does something dramatic the next 3 rounds:)

True...but your score in round 1 was 2...I didn't see that...The mistake happened when I took your score in "LW" column for round 2 as "3"...it should have been 2 smile

Chennai Super Kings have never missed a top 4 playoff spot in all their history but are finally in danger of missing out this year. Unless some really crazy results happen over the remaining matches, CSK are all but out of running for a playoff spot. There were two ties matches in a single day over the weekend, and one of them actually went to a second super over; the first time this has happened since the rules were changed after the 2019 World Cup final (remember that, anyone wink ).

LeoDaVinci makes it an hat-trick of picks for the match with the most runs...this is a most amazing run for this particular point in our comp...don't think we ever had anyone get 3 in the whole season right for this, let alone 3 in a row!

Howie72 had a stellar round and climbs to second spot, while wwe84 was the only one of us to get our banker match right this round.

The top 3 teams (Mumbai, Delhi and Bangalore) all stumbled and the play-off scene still isn't too clear, though Chennai is definitely out of the picture. Out here, LeoDaVinci is very comfortably placed to win his first IPL title. Once again, wwe84 was the only one to get his banker match right and that pushes him past Howie72 into the second spot. George95 gets the match with most runs right this round. srini701 and george95 are also in the running for medal positions. I let both Howie72 and George95 score a point each for the first match as all the rest of us picked the same team.

It turned out to be the most competitive season ever in the IPL. Playing after a very long break and playing on neutral grounds seemed to make things even and all teams were equally balanced. It just turned into which team peaked at the right time. 3 of the four teams who lost out on a play-off spot finished with 6 wins out of 14 matches each (6 wins were enough for Sunrisers to enter the playoffs last year).

Chennai Super Kings were the first team to bow out of the competition, but they dragged Kings XI Punjab also out with them...Chennai won their last 3 matches. Kolkata Knight Riders knocked Rajasthan Royals out, but they themselves lost on a playoff spot, after a resurgent Sunrisers Hyderabad won their last 3 matches, including the final match against Mumbai Indians. So the play-offs will feature defending Champions Mumbai Indians, Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore.

LeoDaVinci wins his first IPL title here. He recorded many firsts here along the way and is a most convincing and deserving winner smile wwe84 got his last 4 banker matches right and ran Leo close in the final round and takes the second spot. srini701 and George95 tied for the third spot despite George95 starting the comp a round late and srini701 only takes the bronze on a better countback (George95 also had more bonus points, so I should probably award him the bronze medal smile ) ....shall let gtho4 arbitrate on this and let me know if we should do that. gtho4 finished out of the podium in this comp for the first time since 2013.

Congratulations to LeoDaVinci, and Thank you all for continuing to support this comp. Please do let me know if we need to tweak the rules or scoring to make it simpler to understand smile
