IPL 7, Match 1 - KKR vs Mumbai Indians

Mumbai Indians the defending Champions of the IPL and KKR who were the winner in IPL 2012  will play the opening match for the season 7 of IPL. The first match of IPL7 will be played on 16th April - 2014 and this is going to be an exciting match. Both the teams has been in good form for last 2-3 seasons. The best thign of IPL7 is that there would be very less home advantage this time for most of the teams as significant number of games are being played at UAE a neutral venue for all.

Also back home  in India there might be some new venues as Rajasthan Royal will play all matches all matches (home) at Ahemdabad in place of Jaipur. Chennai Super Kings also play matches at seocnd home Ranchi in place of Kochi. However the Kins XI Punjab team will have to miss the second home Dharamshala and play matches at Mohali and other venues.

Coming back to the opening match between Kolkata Knight Riders and the Mumbai Indians, the good news for Mumbai team is that the explosive all rounder Pollard has already hit form making a comeback after injury that kept him our of action for around 6 months. The venue Abu Dhabi  would be new to most of the players from both the teams.  The captain of KKR, Gautam Gambhir might want to display good show as this IPL could be his best chance to offer his candidacy for the 2015 ICC cricket world cup. Lets wait for the IPL to start first as wold cup is still a couple of months to go.
