IPL...best thing to happen to Indian Cricket!!!
This season of IPL 2 has been more interesting than previous years. The reason why i think is because by now last year one had a pretty clear picture of which teams were most probably going in the semis...atleast the top three were clearly visible. Not this time. The points table tell all the story. Its very open this time and seems somewhat at the end of the league matches will it be clear as to which are the top four teams. This season has been different as in South Africa the conditions are helping the bowlers too as was not the case last year. the bowlers are having their say in the tournament. The with a good bowling line up will be difficult to face. As the tournament keeps on progressing the pitches are bound to be more slower and the spinners and medium pacers slow ball weapon will be crucial in the series.
IPL has really given an excellent exposure to the youngsters of domestic cricket as these interactions with international players will help them in future. We always hear that Indian batman find it difficult to bat in bouncy and fast tracks, well now as the youngsters are exposed to these conditions so early in their career that these will definitely help them. The best thing that Mr.Lalit Modi has done is that have made a rule that one has to have certain number of Under 22 Indian players. Thats great as IPL is all about Indian Players getting a lovely platform to showcase their talent.
IPL is the best example of what what management is all about. Mr. Lalit Modi and Co have done a fabulous job and no wonder Mr. Modi is as famous as some great players playing in this tournament. The cricket has been of top standard. IPL is definitely going to help strengthen domestic cricket of India. One can see the some changes in the way youngsters play their cricket. IPL has already given some lovely cricketers like Yusuf Pathan, Jadeja to Indian Team and to international teams such Marsh and D. Hussey.
IPL is doing a great job in strengthing Indian Cricket as that its most valuable contribution.
Jai Ho IPL!!!!!
