It has been a pretty dull week one (short one) of IPL 2012, other than Mumabi Indians Vs. Pune Warriors India game none was even close. Pune Warriors India and Rajastan Royals certainly over performed and upset better teams. Looks like Deccan Chargers is going to be at the bottom of table competing with Kings XI Punjab for last two spots.

PWI(H) & KKR(H)Marsh hurt and not having quality Indian batsmen/bowlers is going to hurt them
