Huge surprise indeed. Tendulkar would have owned Jharkhand and so would Zaheer, but the Mumbai batting has lately been weak. In addition, they've often missed Jaffer and Rahane hit a low in this event, as also the rest of the batting. TN missed Balaji as well, and their bowling was weak. Karnataka was strong, but Mithun isn't that good a bowler and the star sons had a long, free ride. The biggest casualty, though, was Delhi, and a little less, Baroda and Uttar Pradesh, who lost a lot of their top players.
