The 13th edition of Indian Premier League (IPL) was initially scheduled to take place in March. But due to global pandemic novel COVID-19, it didn’t take place. With the postponement of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in October, the BCCI has decided to host the IPL 2020 in Dubai. The cash-rich league has been a success and board president Sourav Ganguly is happy the way this league has been getting the viewership.
47 games have been played so far and 2020 edition can be in history as one of the most-watched IPLs as well.
“Unbelievable, and I am not surprised at all. When we were discussing with Star and all the people concerned – if we have to do it this year and one month prior to the tournament, we were contemplating, whether this can happen or not, what will be the ultimate result of the bio-bubble and will it be successful. We decided to move ahead with our plan because we wanted to bring normalcy in everyone’s lives and wanted to bring the game back. I am not surprised with the feedback,” Ganguly said on Star Sports’ show Cricket Live.
The 2020 IPL has already been a huge hit according to Sourav Ganguly where several games have already been witnessed thrilling games, including two Super Overs to determine a winning team for the first time in IPL.
Along with this, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) have been out of the playoffs league for the first time in the history of the cash-rich T20 league. On the other hand, with five wins on a trot, Kings XI Punjab returned in the race of the playoff remarkably as well.
“This is the best tournament in the world. There have been so many super overs, we recently witnessed a double super over, we saw Shikhar Dhawan’s batting, we saw Rohit Sharma, we saw all the young players and we witnessed the comeback of KL Rahul’s KXIP from the bottom of the table. You will get everything here! I can bet you that the IPL has been a smashing success this year, in terms of the ratings, the number of people who have watched the game,” he concluded.
