Passion for IPL is the passion that is second to none. Why is it so loved? What makes it different from other leagues?
Other than the catchy music and every Indian’s love for the sport, here are a few reasons why.
IPL does not just involve cricket; it involves a range of big celebrities and businessmen. This gets a lot of media attention and fans always take a lot of interest in their stars. IPL openings are grand and almost everything is done on a grand scale. Involvement of celebrities adds the glamour quotient to the already thrilling game.
Each team in the IPL represents a city of India, which makes the connection between the audience and the teams deeper. People from each state support their respective teams and go through the highs and lows alongside them.
Love Beyond Boundaries:
In IPL, teams have players from all over the world, making it possible for the audience to openly cheer for their favourite player irrespective of the country they represent. Here you are allowed to have favourites.
Cricket as a sport, despite being fun, can get hectic after long hours. But IPL is like a quick shot of energy. It goes on for 3 hours but is a euphoric ride through and through. The result is instantaneous and we actually get to celebrate with our favourite team. The intensity with which everyone watches the game and the teams give it all their energy.
IPL gives a boost to the GDP and that is why it is an advantage for the Indian Economy. Investments give good returns; the players get a lot of exposure and some of them get to play their favourite sport even after retirement. In addition to these, the audience enjoy watching their favourite players play. It is a win-win for everyone involved. The channels that telecast these earn whopping sums from the telecast.
IPL gives chance to many talented players, old and new. There are so many young and new players that have had the chance to shine after being a part of this tournament. Players that could not perform in other formats have been out-doing themselves in IPL.
Controversies and Epic Moments:
We can witness moments that redefine the word “iconic” and some of them involve angry stares and incredibly comic moments. Scandals, allegations, gossips add fuel to the fire. There have been nail-biting twists that turned the games around, exciting hits and miss and cute moments of camaraderie.
IPL is an emotion to the cricket fans worldwide and its fans shouldn’t be deprived of the fun just because of the Geographical constraints.
