No time for myself, but who's complaining

All good things must come to an end, and that is the case with the World Cup victory celebrations. Still there is no harm to talk about that epic achievement one more time before the fever of IPL 4 grips us all. Harbhajan Singh writes.

CSK, MI are the teams to watch out for

To me, the big challenge coming into the fourth edition of the competition was to understand the intensity of the Indian Premier League, coming as it is days after the conclusion of the World Cup. Javagal Srinath writes.

Imperative to repeat good record at Eden

Ideally, we would have liked to have come home for today's Deccan Chargers' game with a win under our belts. We are disappointed at having lost a game that we had sewn up when we needed just nine off eight balls. Gautam Gambhir writes.

With Ganguly gone, Eden loses its buzz

IPL, Wagh’s ticket to recognition

Expect Sachin's aura to silence the Bangalore crowd
