Frankly, though the annual summer tamasha got a thrilling end with Mumbai Indians beating Chennai Super Kings by one run in the final, Twenty20 cricket defies analysis.

One thing is clear - it's the bowlers who seem to play a decisive role in a team's success. Again, due to the fickleness of Twenty20 cricket, losses don't wound the players' hearts - that's why players from winning and losing teams are able to laugh and chat happily with each other after a game.

Much more serious cricket will be upon us soon - the 50-over World Cup begins on May 30. National teams will be in action, and passion, hurt and anger will be much more authentic.
