One of the highlights of the IPL has been that it has been almost impossible to predict the outcome of any given game. No match has an ‘expected’ result. So, a relatively ‘weak’ side Rajasthan went on to win the tournament in 2008, while one of the ‘favourites’, Deccan, came last. The following year, Deccan, with virtually the same team, bounced back to win IPL 2! In a sense there are no ‘easy’ games or real ‘upsets’ in the IPL - even after a string of embarrassing losses, Punjab was good enough to turn up and thrash the table leaders Mumbai in 2010; and the Kochi Tuskers beat the same side in 2011 when they were beginning to get written off.
