Disappointed so far with this years IPL. After the run-fest of the WT20, opening scores of 120 and 100 for MI and DD... Boring? Or is it just because I'm a batsman?  :D

Good to see Hoggy bullying batsmen though! He must be a million years old.

2 games in! Just 2 and ipl is being slagged off(mainly on Twitter not necessarily talking just here)

And In the way our friend @ProCricketer1982 says, big runs doesn't mean an exciting game.




But

Delhi were poor, if they carry on like that billings may get a game eventually.

Guess it's just me, appreciate were only 2 games in and hope it picks up. I prefer 230 chases and bowlers getting tonked 😄

Who's making Gautam's Bat? Seems odd that he's covering the edge stamps with duct tape, I thought GN had moved the stamps up to the stickers for DRS?

As a batsmen it means more to score runs when others don't rather than score when every man and his dog could. Sadly all people (majority) want to see is bowlers get tonked. Might as well sack bowling off and just play 11 batsmen.

Nothing more boring than 4/6 after 4/6., even that gets boring.

Having said that, the quality isn't good

In both the games stronger batting line up was chasing the target. If Pune or Kolkata had batted first we could have seen a 160+ target easily. Pune batting line up looks pretty strong .... Faf, rahane, kevin, smith, marsh, dhoni ... :o

How dare you! How very well dare you. It is absolutely fantastic, and the variety........... I can have McDonald's, kfc, Pizza Hut and Burger King of the local retail park. And then if that get boring there's Atleast 50 restaurants on my take away ordering app(just eat)...



Oh wait I've gone off topic....... Oops.

It's sort of an over dose, but i am not addicted to seeing some form of cricket every week ... i don't mind IPL followed by World T20.

Be interesting to see how johnson goes today. Not played any cricket since retiring. Suspect he's just there to pick up his pay cheque.
Finch and McCullum is some opening partnership to bowl to mind you!

Surprised SRH would play Morgan over Williamson!

Surprising! Must've wanted more than GM were offering I guess, especially now he's retired from internationals.
