I agree with JP. In first season of IPL we saw some good cricket. But in second IPL I felt that all matches was fixed or had unexpected result. From now onwards I do not watch matches of IPL although I am big fan of cricket. Doesn't matter what the team is..! I watch only cricket but this time I am watching

SELECT ALL_CRICKET FROM ICC WHERE MATCH_TOURNAMENT NOT IN (IPL,PAKISTAN CRICKET BOARD)

During the last competition there was token coverage on the evening news on TV and nothing anywhere else that I noticed (in Oz). I would be unable to tell you anything about any team or match and more time was spent discussing players that weren't going due to schedule conflicts.


You can watch all IPL matches on 1 HD channel, in Australia.

It's mainly because I find that there's an air of artificial excitement generated with all kinds of non-cricketing things involved in IPL. I even find the commentators going overboard (which is irritating) for every shot hit.


This sums it up in a funny way!

Just my 2 cents...

I feel IPL is a big step forward in Indian sports arena.

Identifying talent from all corners of the country (and probably world) and giving chance to promising youngsters (many of them are barely in 20's) adding to the raw entertainment for people like us!

Not to mention the money its pooling in, like somebody mentioned already above...

I feel we need more such initiatives "maybe soccer, tennis and hockey"

Oh no, that should be "sports entertainment". TNA is actual wrestling

Today Deccan Chargers won the match. Reason?
VVS Laxman was not allowed to play.
VVS should understand that this is a 20 over a side game, not a 20 day match.
He should evaluate himself before offering to play.

Team management should fire him, it is better to have 1 less player than having him in a T20 team.
