Indian Premier League, the odds, the schedule and my favourite for this year.

Indian Premier League, the odds, the schedule and my favourite for this year.

The annual cricket jamboree called Indian Premier League is going to get underway from today with the first match between Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Daredevils at 8.00 pm.  This annual affair which is less cricket and more glitz and glamour makes the children's vacations fun and enjoyable.

The sixth version of the IPL which kicked of yesterday to the dance of Deepika and the songs featuring Pitbull is sure to run full houses.  The Sony SetMax which provides the live telecast of all the matches has reportedly already sold of all the ad slots.  Even Twitter has joined the IPL bandwagon with a special Twitter Discover page for IPL VI.  Even if you are not a cricket fan the extravaganza will get to you.  The match schedule is as under :

The other most important aspect of IPL is betting and there is a huge betting industry which thrives on betting on the matches of IPL.  As per Ladbrokes the odds for today's matches are as follows : Delhi Daredevils : 6/5 and Kolkata Knight Riders 4/6.  The Ladbrokes gives out the tournament favourites tag to Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders at 9/2.  The unofficial figures for last years betting stood at Rs.42000 crores and this year it may cross Rs.50000 crores.

You may like it, you may hate it but if you live in India you will somehow be a part of the IPL for next 2 months. I personally predict the Delhi Daredevils to lift this years IPL.  So let the games begin. Please post your comments on this article.
