What seems to be a massive blunder on the part of the team that maintains IPL's official website, has surely become the talk of the town.

As all are aware that we are already into the playoffs for the fifth season of the IPL. Team Delhi was to play Team Kolkata in the first match of the playoff. Team Kolkata won this match last night to proceed directly into the finals. As the playoffs have it, Team Mumbai will play Team Chennai tonight and the winner of the match will meet Team Delhi in the second qualifier. Winner of the second qualifier will then play Team Kolkata in the finals.

But if you just visit the official website of the IPL (www.iplt20.com), you are bound to notice something strange. A little click to visit Team Kolkata's page (http://www.iplt20.com/teams/kolkata-knight-riders) has something interesting to offer. The bottom right on the page shows a small block saying "Next Match". Very surprisingly, this section shows that Team Kolkata will play its next match against Team Chennai.

Though this definitely, is a huge oversight on the website admins, my curiosity took me to Team Delhi's page  (http://www.iplt20.com/teams/delhi-daredevils) and guess what? Team Delhi is supposed to play its next match against Team Chennai!

Haha! All seems so consistent now! For all this to happen, Team Mumbai will lose to Team Chennai today and Team Chennai will then beat Team Delhi in the second qualifier to meet Team Kolkata in the finals.

Definitely a blunder on the website admins part, but this error has given all of us something to talk about, for sometime now :)

All the best Team Mumbai, for today's match then :)
