iplRanchi, Friday, May 2 – Journey of all 8 participating IPL teams have been interesting in its 7th edition so far, except Mumbai Indians who failed to win even a single match in UAE. Excitement and enthusiasm are anticipated to be at the next level as IPL returns to India.

When Indian Premier League kicked off a few years ago, carrying forward the game of 20 over format, it wasn’t predicted that its fever will grip not only the nationals, but also the die-hard cricket fans from all over the world. Giving a memorable ending to IPL in UAE, confidence of Sunrisers Hyderabad is at the peak these days. Royal Challengers Bangalore and Delhi Daredevils would have to pour great efforts if they want to stay in the contest and win the trophy of IPL season 7.

Kings XI Punjab have stunned everyone in the current series by winning all the five matches against different teams. Glenn Maxwell performance in the first three matches made him stand in the list of elite players, who imparted terrific role in changing the game right from the beginning till the last moment.

Gautam Gambhir-led Kolkata Knight Riders is looking forward to better luck and outcomes this time after losing the last match against Rajasthan Royals, who won the super over thrill on the boundary count on April 29. Chennai Super Kings are keenly looking forward to another victory and expecting to commence their journey on Indian soil with a success by thrashing KKR.

As mega contest is on the cards today, JSCA International Stadium Complex in Ranchi is likely to be jam-packed. Being the first match of the ongoing tournament, expectations of audience are undoubtedly up. Since most of the players in IPL are Indians, several big shots and countless boundaries are probable to be struck in the upcoming matches due to their familiarity with the Indian pitches.

It would be interesting to watch whether Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s potential ‘playing 11’ maintain winning momentum or succumb to Kolkata Knight Riders’ bowling attack, which has been good up till now – especially against Royal Challengers Bangalore when Chris Lynn emerged as the game changer by taking the catch of AB de Villiers at the moment when RCB were standing just on the verge of victory at Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium on April 25.

The game of cricket is full of uncertainties. Right now, defending champions Mumbai Indians are standing on the bottom but no one knows things might turn in their favor in the home conditions. Having a deep batting line and ideal bowling pace, winners of IPL 2013 may go up in the points table. As of now, viewers are all set to see a healthy contest between CSK and Kolkata Knight Riders that start today at 8 PM onwards.
