The fifth season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) began under a cloud. Will it die down or continue to flourish? That and questions of similar tone kept coming leading up to the opening game on April 4. But 53 matches later, the league continues to be a run-away success thanks to the number of humdingers it has thrown up this year.
Looking at it from an expert's eye, the IPL is much more than fun, frolic, music, cheerleaders and whacking the ball out of the park. It's entertainment all right, but nothing without the serious business of competition on a cricket field.
