For millions of cricket fans in the US, March Madness is here with not only one, but two back-to-back, action-packed Twenty20 tournaments. In just its third year, IPL has already become one of the biggest sporting events in the world, featuring eight franchises. A thrilling cocktail of action-packed cricket enticingly blended with Bollywood entertainment!
The action kicks off with an exciting season-opener on March 12, 2010, when the IPL 3.0’s Adam Gilchrist’s Deccan Chargers take on King Khan’s Knight Riders led by Saurav Ganguly. After six weeks of exciting games, the IPL will finish with a grand finale in Mumbai on April 25. Only five days later, action will be shifted to a world stage, with all top cricketing nations assembling in the West Indies for the ICC World Twenty20, 2010. Team India is determined to reclaim the trophy they won in the tournament’s inaugural year when Misbah-ul-Haq scooped the ball to Sreesanth in the last over!
With all that excitement in store, who wouldn’t want to pad up, knock the bat, shine the ball and jump right into the action?
