A positive aspect of the IPL was that with players of different nations turning out for the same team it could help the cricketers to forget bitter memories of the past and bring them together.
Tom Moody the former Australian all rounder who was the coach of the Mohali team expressed the view that when cricketers are playing in opposite sides things can get heated.
``But when players get together in a team, the game tends to take control of all egos and past discrepancies,` said Moody.
It was such a pleasure for example to see Ricky Ponting hugging Sourav Ganguly when the latter took a wicket and other such similar heartwarming scenes.
And of course it was a great sight to see Brett Lee hurling them down at Matthew Hayden, Glenn McGrath bowling to Adam Gilchrist or Muthiah Muralitharan unveiling his bag of tricks to Kumar Sangakkara.
