The Indian Premier League commenced on Wednesday after much speculation was raised in the recent weeks whether the tournament will take place or not owing to the IPL corruption case being heard by the Indian Supreme Court.
Wednesday marks a special day for IPL not only as the day of commencement, but also as the the next court hearing is in the morning in Delhi.
The starting match of the tournament will have the defending champions Mumbai Indians facing the Kolkata Knight Riders at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.
Mumbai retained five of their key players, and snapped up the reliable Michael Hussey – last season’s highest run-getter – and flavour-of-the-season Corey Anderson, but their squad seems to lack the depth it had in 2013. Knight Riders have four core members of the squad from 2013 – Gautam Gambhir, Sunil Narine, Jacques Kallis and Yusuf Pathan. They have invested in Robin Uthappa and Australia’s Chris Lynn, but the batting still looks a touch light.
