Yeah, perhaps. But wish MI did not have so many close matches going in the wrong way in the end.... Not good to digest the same pill again and again and again!

Actually the games are getting close due to

master captaincy, they should have been one sided loses...trust in captain mastermind

Ashwin has been brilliant in the field with his tactics. I would have rather him captaining our test side than Chiku

Just now, velu said:

most of the BBL matches are close games as well ..

rarely team loses by more than 20 runs when chasing , so we always geta  match till 19.4 overs

BBL is quality as well but lack of international stars make it a bit dull from a neutral pov. But yeah after IPL it's BBL.

Accidentally ran into some video highlights of IPL games from 2008-2010.. Some very noticeable changes...

 

- Back then, every team pretty much had 1-2 absolute sh!t Indian players who were enormous liabilities, that is not the case anymore.. With 10+ years of T20 cricket, the talent pool or local T20 talent is now large enough to contain a critical mass of quality players to supply 8 IPL teams. 

 

- Most teams also had a couple of big name international stars who were well past their prime (Remember 'ICON' player concept in the first year or so?). That too is gone, teams are picking smartly and not going after big name players or spending a large part of their purse on out and out fast bowlers..

 

The above two reasons - and others - is resulting in overall better quality of play.

Evenly matched teams, closed finishes, high quality cricket and less of SRK.

This IPL season has everything which is expected from a league of such a stature. Young Indian batsmen topping the batting charts, emerging fast bowlers, good cricket all over.

Man I'm lovin it!

Yes good IPL so far, plenty of close games. Good to have RR and CSK back......Pune, Gujju franchises were like cheap imitation replacements!

Yes given that Rohit was defending modest totals quite a number of times and to drag the game till last over deserves applause..hope I dont inspire people here to pull their daggers out when I name a Sharma
