Which team should I support in this IPL?

From the last few days I was thinking about which will be my favorite team in this IPL session. The confusion creates since Sourav Ganguly was not picked by any of the 10 IPL teams, else I must support Ganguly’s team no doubt about that. Just to remind: I am a big fan of Sourav Ganguly. Though KKR was not able to make to semis in the last 3 IPL sessions, but still I enjoyed a lot by watching all the KKR matches. But this time I will be very happy watching KKR loosing all the matches. I was very much disappointed when no team picked Ganguly not even Kochi. But still I am happy with Ganguly’s new role as a cricket export or as a commentator.

Team combination for session 4 is not good for most of the teams except Chennai and Mumbai Indians. Rest of the Teams is as usual. KKR seems a bit good after picking 2 specialists like Gambhir and Yousuf Pathan.
Though I am also a fan of Gambhir but I cannot support him because SRK did not retain Ganguly. I cannot support Mumbai Indians since I am not a fan of Tendulkar as a captain. I never want someone will succeed Ganguly as the India’s most successful captain. But Dhoni has done the mistake. So I cannot support Chennai Super Kings. But I am really very happy that India own the World cup under someone’s good leadership.

Rest of the teams like Kings XI Punjab, Deccan Chargers, Rajasthan Royals and Kochi Tuskers are not good. I have 3 options left one is Delhi daredevils, another one in Shahara Pune Warriors and Royal Challengers Bangalore. Among these 3 teams you cannot expect Shewag to do well in most of the matches. So I have a 50-50 chance of supporting Shewag. Virat Kohili is one of my favorite player from the very beginning. Also Dilshan is there in the Royal Challengers. So I have a 80-20 chance of supporting Challengers. One more reason is I am staying in Bangalore now. Yuvraj and Uthappa both are very good 20-20 players and belongs to pune. So I have a very good chance of supporting pune. Lets see !!!
