20121221133537!Pepsi_IPL_LogoWell this year’s IPL is definitely one of the toughest in terms of competitive level. One-third of the tournament is over, and yet there is no certain team that would make through to the final 4. It is on Delhi Daredevils that look to be out of the reckoning for the final 4 spot as they have all of their first 6 matches, which they might need to win 8-9 matches of their remaining 10 matches something that looks difficult, but anything can be possible in cricket so they are not yet out of the tournament.

Well at the start of tournament, one would have bet 4 out of Delhi Daredevils, Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Royal Challengers Bangalore should make it to the top 4. Not much was thought of the other 4 teams of making it to the top 4. But surprisingly, team Delhi one of the strongest on paper has lost their first 6 matches, which probably make them the first team to be knocked out of the tournament. Again all of team Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, and Bangalore have should a little indifferent form in their first 5-6 matches. Though team Bangalore is placed second at this point, team Chennai at fourth, team Mumbai at fifth, team Kolkata at seventh, and team Delhi at ninth (last). The other underdog teams (especially Rajasthan Royals) have done well and in fact are at the top of the table at this stage. The other teams like Kings XI Punjab and the debutant team (Sun Risers Hyderabad) have shown indifferent form but have managed to scrape to victories on most of the occasions and they are placed sixth and third in the table respectively. Also, Pune Warriors have not played to the expectations of the fans but have defeated the big teams like Chennai and the I form Rajasthan and are currently placed at eighth, but yes they still have a very good chance to qualify.

Well who all are going to make it to the top 4, definitely looks like a surprise that would be awaited. Let’s wait and see what happens, I hope that at least Mumbai Indians makes through to the top 4.
