It's lonely at the top.

Recommended Posts

There are no semis this time around. They have playoffs 1st and 2nd play each other. 3rd and 4th play eacth other Winner of 3rd or 4th play the loser of 1st and 2nd. So team that is 1st and 2nd have two chances to reach Finals.

Yep, no semis this time. Irks me when players themselves talk about reaching the semis...shows they know or don't care about the format. Team that finishes first has a really good chance.

It would be funny if a team that finishes at 4th goes on to win the whole thing. Imagine RCB doing that with couple of Gayle blazers.

I am not sure that any team is guaranteed to finish top 2 at this point despite MI's dream run. Correct me.
yes no one is guaranteed the top 2 spot yet. But way they are playing they are most likely to be in top 2.

Din't that happen last year when CSK won it. This time around 4th number team has to win 3 games in a row to win it...if they do it, they deserve it.

The top 2 teams definitely will be awarded with 2 chance to reach the final. That's a big incentive for teams to try to shoot for the top 2 spots rather then just top 4. :mi: are certainly enjoying the top position. They have played well....but they have done that in other iPL also. Do they have the correct team to win the Ipl this time?

Mumbai has won 5 games, so they only need to win 3-4 more games to qualify to playoffs

There aren't? So what's the format? Do the top 2 teams play the final or is it a round robin league like EPL or La Liga?
a) It's 1 vs 2 b) 3 vs 4. c) Then the loser of 1vs2 faces winner of 3vs4. Then winner of (a) faces winner of ©

this new format seems weird. So 1 beats 2. 3 beats 4. 2 beats 3. Now 1 has to play 2 again even though they just beat them. WTF! Seems like the format has been made to allow chokers like MI get a second life.

1 & 2 both get 2 chances to win. Makes sense.

Hows MI choker, when CSK has lost once in final and once in semifinal... I agree with you. They should have had best of 3 finals.

Choker tag is forever removed once you win it all. Ask the SAFFIES why they are still tagged as Chokers. :winky: Anyways, the MI comment was made just to make the discussion more interesting. :hysterical:

Well, what about semis then? A team plays hard all year only to lose a single game (semis) and out? They could do round robin with 4 semi finalists and then play a best of 3 finals and I guess that would get over in June. :hehe:
