Indian Premier League 7, April 2nd week to May end:It may be in its seventh edition this year but Indian Premier League will continue to be a ho*ly-contested tournament. Mumbai Indians go in as the defending champions but will be without their talismanic ‘leader', Sachin Tendulkar. While the likes of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will fancy their chances, others too will be hoping to spring a surprise. Memories of spot-fixing scandal can finally be put to rest with clean and competitive cricket this year.
