IPL is a 'lefty' game

Mull this:

"On one hand we have Matthew Hayden (Chennai Super Kings, 426), Suresh Raina (Chennai Super Kings, 309), J P Duminy (Mumbai Indians, 297) and Yuvraj Singh (Kings XI Punjab, 296) as the top four batsmen. Gilchrist again features in the top 10 list with an aggregate of 265 from 10 games so far.

On the other hand, we have bowlers like R P Singh (Deccan Chargers), Ashish Nehra (Delhi Daredevils), Yusuf Abdulla (Kings XI Punjab), Shadab Jakati (Chennai Super Kings) and Pragyan Ojha (Deccan Chargers) featuring among the top bowlers in the competition."

Why are the left- hander's having a field day in IPL?

Its the same as last year... left handers dominated. Both the Orange Cap (Marsh) and Purple Cap (Tanvir) went to lefties.. will be the same this year..

Thanks for the welcome, Q. Now that you pointed out that lefty's dominated last years IPL, I think we will have to get to the bottom of it.
