I pick: Rajasthan Royals, Deccan Chargers, Chennai Super Kings, and Delhi Daredevils. All things considered, not a bad list (and not much of a surprise). With these made-up franchises, it’s hard to justify loyalties, but I’m reasonably certain these are the best teams (and if you need more than 40 matches to figure that out, then it’s not much of a format). For the record, I’m rooting for a Rajasthan victory, because it’s still the cheapest team around.
