The one event that the entire cricketing world has been waiting for is finally underway. That's right, the T20 tournament is here, and it's turning into a helluva competition! The league has eight teams who are battling it out in a race to the finals­ the Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians , the Royal Challengers Bangalore, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Rajasthan Royals, Kings XI Punjab, Delhi Daredevils and the Chennai Super Kings.

There are more than a few big names in the T20 tournament, including international legends and domestic talent, with MS Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Michael Hussey for Chennai Super Kings, JP Duminy, Quinton de Kock and Yuvraj Singh for Delhi Daredevils, George Bailey, Glenn Maxwell and David Miller for Kings XI Punjab, Gautam Gambhir, Sunil Narine and Morne Morkel for Kolkata Knight Riders, Rohit Sharma, Kieron Pollard and Lasith Malinga for Mumbai Indians, Shane Watson, James Faulkner and Ajinkya Rahane for Rajasthan Royals, Virat Kohli, AB de Villiers and Chris Gayle for Royal Challengers Bangalore and David Warner, Shikhar Dhawan and Dale Steyn for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

While the cricket match league stage is currently ongoing, the predictions for the playoffs have already begun. Current standings see the Rajasthan Royals on the top of the table, with 14 points, with the Chennai Super Kings following closely, with 12 points. The third and fourth positions belong to the Royal Challengers Bangalore and the Kolkata Knight Riders, with 9 points each. Betting men have opened up about their favourites, and have pegged the four playoff spots for the Rajasthan Royals, the Chennai Super Kings, the Kings XI Punjab and the Kolkata Knight Riders, while the finals spots should be likely to see the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Chennai Super Kings, and maybe, the Kolkata Knight Riders will lift the T20 tournament cup!

The T20 tournament is certainly taking off, with sold out stadiums and massive crowds booking tickets. While the league stage is still going on, speculation is rife for the playoffs!
