After You

After the first 10 matches of this years IPL an interesting statistic has formed with 8 of the teams batting 2nd going onto win.  When you consider that Twenty20 is a surprisingly even game, (with the average chances of winning when chasing a score hovering under 50%) it would seem that things are a little out of line.  Watch this space to see if the law of averages pulls us back to the norm, or is there a reason why this should be an advantage this season?
From a personal viewpoint it's been a placid start and I'm yet to hit my straps.  Good news is there's 64 matches to go, and with approximately £8 million being matched on every 3 hour contest, that's plenty of time to move up a few gears.
