IPL 2012 : News
Once a spinner, the bat is now White's weapon
Playing for the Deccan Chargers for the second consecutive year - he had donned Royal Challengers colours from 2008-2010 - White has been the only bright spot for the Hyderabad team.
Gayle's approach is simply amazing
He has this unique style of batting - patting down deliveries in the first few overs before launching himself later.
RR and Kings XI have played fearless cricket
This uncertain nature has been the biggest draw of the tournament and I am sure the cricket-loving public all over the world is lapping up every bit of it.
Win against the Royals will help us get our season back on track
We came so close against the Mumbai Indians but the manner in which we lost was heartbreaking.
Cap during transfer window needed
Kings XI skipper Adam Gilchrist thinks the IPL is becoming a league of 'haves' and 'have-nots'.
Viru and Warner have a lot in common
Against the Knight Riders, Sehwag and Warner were reunited as openers. The two belong to the see-ball-hit-shot school of batting and are not known to waste time at the crease. Amrit Mathur
We have lacked the killer instinct
It was an amazing feeling to be at the Eden on Saturday. The Eden is the best cricket ground in the world where the knowledgeable crowd gives you due recognition, and it lived up to its reputation once more. No wonder, cricketers the world over crave to play here at least once.
Genuine resurgence or false dawn?
After a dramatic slide in the rankings following two Ashes beatings and a lost series in India, Australia are once again on the rise.
Confidence scores over momentum
It was a hard fought win against the Deccan Chargers. Nothing is coming easy for us but we are pleased with the outcome.
Emotion can be a driving force in sport
It’s fair to say that we are all looking at the points table. There is nothing wrong in it as long as you forget about it the moment you look away.
Will Sourav up the ante at the Eden?
Barring the Delhi Daredevils and Deccan Chargers, who are perched at their respective ends of the spectrum, the remaining teams have not shown signs of settling down.
Matches getting too close for comfort
I have been surprised by the number of last-over or last-ball finishes this year. It’s a reflection of how close the competition is and the amount of pressure each team is under to collect the two points on offer

Square cut a potent weapon for Viru, Dravid
From the two back-to-back wins against the Rajasthan Royals, some memories stand out. In the home game, the Daredevils barely crossed the line to win a game which, actually, the Royals refused to win.
Thanks to Steyn & Ganguly, IPL has its moments
Now that advertisers seem to be not so keen on the IPL, now that ticket prices are being slashed to lure spectators to stadiums, and now that TV viewership figures are dwindling compared to those of previous editions, a couch purist ought to gloat.
Need to brace up for MI challenge
It was disappointing to lose at Cuttack, especially when we were in control till the 15th over of the Deccan Chargers’ innings. The last five overs took the game away from us and this is not the first time it has happened in the tournament.
Cricket is all about team sport not individuals: Gambhir
Mindless scheduling making players opt for harsh choices
At the time the IPL was mooted in order to combat the rebel ICL, I felt the timing was right to have a round table meeting involving all the game’s stakeholders, from players and administrators to television executives and sponsors.
Political powerplay drains colour purple
The big occasion of an IPL final had little effect on Bisla
In the face of allegations, BCCI needs to be careful
