The IPL was inaugrated in 2008 and is now in its fifth edition.The opening match of IPL-V is going to be between, two time winners  Chennai Super Kings and 2010 runners up, Mumbai Indians, on April 4 at Chennai.There will be no Shane Warne this time to add his magic of taking a lowly placed team like Rajasthan Royals to the finals and becoming champions in the first IPL. Also there are again going to be no players from Pakistan.Also missing will be the dashing Yuvraj Singh.However the Tendulkars,Dhonis and the Kohlis will provide all the action.Australian captain Michael Clarke has signed up with Sahara Pune Warriors.

 For nearly two months the rotten politics and the demeaning corruption stories will give way to cricket fever in the country. The centre stage will be dominated by IPL-V. The Twenty20 format will guarantee action packed matches

and evenings will not be the same for the next two months.

SetMax who have bought the television rights will be televising all the matches.

So lets all get set to set aside listening to all the everyday controversies and watching the live Twenty20 action of the IPL-V for the next sixty days.
