IPL 2011 starts today. LIke Last Year i think we should have a Single match thread for all the league stage Games. No need for separate match threads for each games. So lets have all our match-time Chit-Chats Here.
this year 10 teams are gonna participate with the inclusion of Kochi and Pune. Teams have been rearranged as only maximum 4 players were retained and then players were re auctioned.
so u may not see ur favorite players in ur favorite team anymore. perhaps ur favorite players have been shifted some where else.
with addition of two teams the format has also change a bit. first each team will play each once and then they will play only 5 teams twice. the teams one will face the second time has been decided by lottery. so after each team will play 14 games and total 70 games the leaugue stage will end and the Qulifiers/Eliminator Round for Final will start.
Qualifier ONE: Top two from league will play and winner moves to Finals. Loser moves to Qualifier Two.
Eliminator: No 3 and No4 from leaugue plays and winner moves two Qualifier two
Qualifier TWO: Loose of Qualifier 1 plays Winner of Eliminator and Winner Goes to Final
anyway todays game is Chennai Super Kings vs Kolkata Knight Riders.
