The hype called DLF IPL is now over. The people now will get out of their houses in the evening, the children will rush up in the parks and the shopkeepers will also start making money in this period of the day. The newspapers will not be having the Analysis and the detailed Score Sheets of the last evening games and the controversies happening in the IPL.
What we saw in this year’s IPL? Some fantastic Cricket, unfortunate match fixing allegations on some players, the rave party incident, the demolition of ‘the God of Off-side’, the title clinching of the Kolkata Knight Riders and the ‘unprecedented’ involvement of a CM in the celebration of the KKR.
The IPL TV Commercials always had some senseless taglines like: ‘Aisa Mauka or Kahan Milega’, ‘Yahaan Sab Kuch Milega Extra’, ‘Bharat Band’ etc. And in a way, these TV Commercials are giving the right message as well. The IPL gives the media everything including the match report, the thrilling moments, the controversies, the debate on the league and, thus, it matters a lot to the Media people.
The TRP Graph shows this was the best IPL of the lot and, by far, the most profitable to the BCCI. No wonder, they decided to share the revenue with the Ex-Cricketers as they might be having shortage of the space to keep their money in!
