IPL 2012: Pune Warriors India emerging as the new Champion
Tomorrow on 27th April we will be on the midway of the tournament as the match between Mumbai Indian and Delhi Daredevils played at Firoz Shah Kotla will be the 36th match of IPL 2012.
If we look at the point table today certainly we will conclude that things are not progressing as was expected at the start of tournament, surely this was rain last night at Bengaluru which forced CSK and RCB to hold third and fourth position on the point table.
Considering the past performance Delhi Daredevils are appear to have a dream run this year but for the most of followers of the game progress of Pune Warriors India and Rajasthan Royals is a surprise element of this year’s cricket carnival as at the start both were rated even below the Kings IX Punjab, though this is yet another thing that even before the start of tournament I was sure that PWI and RR are going to make a place in final four.
I was sure just because Dada has to prove his inspiring leadership once again and Rahul has to prove a point that though 20-20 is game of physical powers but still this can be won on sheer talent and class.
In today’s position PWI and RR need to won just four more matches out of remaining eight. PWI has to play 2 games each against DC, KKR, RR and one each against MI and RCB. If we consider the last match between the PWI and RCB, this doesn’t happen so frequently that over 20 runs are scored in the last over of the match this fact might prove a point of inspiration for PWI when they play reverse game against RCB at home ground on the 11th May where as defending a paltry 129 against MI in the very first match of tournament they played is bound to boost the moral of player when they play against the MI on 3rd May at home.
PWI need to won just one from these two and one each against the DC, KKR and RR to take their point tally to 16 considering the present situations this appears that 16 points will be more than enough for any team to qualify for the final four.
My Final four with probable % of winning IPL 2012 are
Rajasthan Royals [30%]
Mumbai Indian [20%]
