A lot of people are already aware of this, so please, bear with me while I inform the rest.
Here is my original policy for supporting IPL teams in any given match:
Always support the team that comes from further south, except when:
a) KKR is playing, in which case, support them, or
b) Mumbai Indians are playing, in which case, automatically support the other team.
My reason for disliking MI is fairly simple. I don't like how the team is named. I mean, the opening batsman and bowler are from Sri Lanka and South Africa respectively... Why call the team Mumbai Indians?
As far as supporting KKR goes, I just liked their black-n-gold colour combo. Oh, and that wicked awesome flaming ancient Roman war-helmet logo.
Which brings me to the next topic: How To Choose Which Team To Support:
a) By Performance:
The IPL does this for us, Rajasthan Royals coming out on top, with Deccan Chargers and Bangalore Royal Challengers bringing up the rear.
b) By Team Colours:
KKR takes this one hands down. Really. No contest. Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI Punjab fight for the next spot. Bringing up the rear, Deccan Chargers and Chennai Super Kings.
c) By Team Logo:
KKR wins. 'nuf said.
d) By Cheerleaders:
Rajashtan Royals take the crown. Wow. No, I mean WOW. Bangalore Royal Challengers come in second (Go Mallya!), with KXIP coming in third. Bottom of the table: Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. Seriously, people, get a clue. Male cheerleaders? With the two remaining females in trackpants? For CSK, that too yellow? Not happening.
Oh, and I now support a toss-up of CSK, DD and KXIP. No specific reason as such.
