IPL Day One: Bangalore's Day

Dravid 66 (48); he walked in with Royal Challengers struggling at 17/3. The six he hit off Munaf Patel was a massive one.

Kumble (3.1-1-5-5) cleaned up Rajasthan Royals with an unforgettable sequence of batsmen getting out.

Shane Warne (4-0-18-2) and a brilliant diving catch to dismiss Dravid also showed what class is all about.

Against Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai's Sachind Tendulkar provided great value by scoring 59 runs off 49 balls and remained unbeaten - batting through the 20 overs.

Matthew Hayden top scored for CSK with 44 off 35 balls.

The average age of these oldies is about 38.

Mumbai Indians and Bangalore Royal Challengers (isn't it Bengaluru?) won on Day One.

Dimitry Mascarenhas (4-0-20-3) and Lasith Malinga (4-0-15-3) also provided brilliant bowling performances.

*Tail Piece

Mallya should never be allowed to own a cricket team or for that matter allowed to make cricketing decisions. He is an alcohol trader; he makes money by selling stuff that ruins lives and also provides a profitable business to gastroenterologists (guys who treat liver ailments).

True, RCB were clueless in the first edition of IPL.

I am happy for Kumble and Dravid.

Doosra's IPL Star of the Day is - Rahul Dravid.
