Saturday, May 19, 2012


The fifth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) offers a plethora of talent from all over the world cricket. Players like Chris Gayle, Lasith Malinga and David Warner have the power to turn any match around and will be key to the fortunes of their team in the tournament.

Here is a list of stars to watch this season:


Chris Gayle:
A name that would be on the lips of every bowler will be that of the explosive West Indian batsman Chris Gayle. The man in the Caribbean took the tournament by storm in 2011 after being overlooked in the player auction.

Gayle was introduced as a replacement for Australian pacer Dirk Nannes and played a crucial role in the course of the Royal Challengers for the final. He knocked two hundred, three half-centuries, and picked up eight wickets as held in Bangalore were thwarted in the final by the Chennai Super Kings. Gayle was the highest long-getter in competition last year with 608 runs at an average of 67.55.

A look at his team:
Bangalore Royal Challengers:
Finalists from last year can expect to go the distance with the presence of the explosive West Indian batsman Chris Gayle and form Virat Kohli. These two should get broad support of AB Villiers of South Africa and Sri Lankan Tillakaratne Dilshan.

Zaheer Khan and R Vinay Kumar will be the key in the fast bowling department. Spinners Daniel Vettori Champions and Muttiah Muralitharan Royal Challengers certainly a force to reckon with.
