Why CSK Look Good To Win IPL6

As I write this one, CSK are joint top of the points table alongside Rajasthan Royals, a team which just broke some over confidence that might have set in the yellow brigade. For me this loss comes at the right time. It will help the team get back to the drawing board with a few concerns after the easy victories that came their way off late.

IPL, Regional Divisions & Hatred? You Are Kidding Me!
