IPL 2019: Fight of the fates, Bangalore or Harry Gurney
Cricket is a game of uncertainties, as opined by one of the most famous India batsman, Virendra Sehwag. This is absolutely true, especially in the shortest format of the game and IPL (Indian Premier League) is no exception to it. You can never predict what will happen till the last over of the game concludes.
But this time around, we have a reason to predict winner even before the tournament has started as we are going witness a fight of the lucks, Bangalore’s luck or KKR’s (Kolkata Knight Riders) bowler Harry Gurney luck. Both are on a winning streak, Bengaluru has been winning every tournament in 2019 whereas Harry Gurney has not lost even a single league he has participated in since he left England in December 2018.
Bengaluru’s winning streak started off with the Bengaluru Bulls‘ triumphant in Pro Kabaddi League title followed by Bengaluru Raptors win in Pro Badminton League and Bengaluru FC win in Indian Super League (ISL). Interestingly, all these titles were their maiden title and you may call it a coincidence but if the RCB won this year’s IPL, that too is going to be maiden IPL title for RCB.
RCB is not the only team coming with a luck factor as KKR’s Harry Gurney will also be there, who has not lost any league he has participated in since he left England in December 2018. The 32-year old played in T10 League for Northern Warriors, then played for Melbourne Renegades in Big Bash League and recently played for Quetta Gladiators in PSL, surprisingly all the teams that he played for won the tournament.
However, there are six other teams participating in the league and the chances are equal for each team, though it will be exciting to see whether RCB or Gurney’s luck will continue or not and if so, whose luck it is going to be.
The much-awaited IPL is set to commence on March 23 in Chennai. (ANI)
