The eighth edition of the Indian Premier League is all set to begin today.
The event will open tonight with a glittering ceremony where Bollywood superstars Hrithik Roshan, Shahid Kapoor and Anushka Sharma form a power-packed line-up of performers.
However, there is a high possibility of rain and thunderstorm interrupting the opening ceremony at the Salt Lake Stadium.
A lot depends on Lasith Malinga’s form for Mumbai Indians’ bowling to succeed.
Hopes are pinned on him to bail the team out in the death overs.
However, Mumbai Indians coach Ricky Ponting believes Malinga’s skills are most suited to T20 as compared to the 50-over format. “
Mumbai Indians skipper Rohit Sharma is also confident that Malinga will be back to his best.
