The IPL, also called as the IPL 14, is the fifteenth season of an international league of professional cricket, the Indian Premier League. The IPL matches are played across the countries of England, Australia, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka. The first season was held in England, with the teams from both countries meeting at the Grosvenor House Hotel in Mumbai. This year’s IPL season will be held in Sri Lanka. Both the IPL matches and tournaments are attended by tens of millions of fans. Although many people follow the IPL, it is clear that the fans in India are the driving force behind the success of this season of IPL.
The Chennai Super Kings versus the Delhi Daredevils game are one of the most watched matches in the IPL. The Chennai Super Kings are favourites to win the IPL against the heavily favoured Delhi Daredevils. The crowd in the stands at the Chennai International Cricket Stadium are absolutely packed with the die-hard fans of Chennai. The fans chant slogans such as “PNL, IPL 14, PPP.”
With two matches scheduled in a week, it is not surprising that both teams are confident about winning these matches. Both batsmen try to impress their fans with a spectacular performance. The IPL has introduced video camera cameras so that the match commentary can be heard around the world. The commentary provides the latest updates on the ongoing IPL matches.
The IPL is now gradually becoming a replacement for the annual Indian Premier League and is attracting more viewers and players. Cricket fans throughout the world have been introduced to this tournament. They have found out that IPL matches are much more than just another game; they are a thrill and a way to meet friends and family members.
Earlier, only the powerful IPL franchises from the IPL countries could afford to sign up players from overseas. Now IPL players have entered into the domestic cricket arena and IPL matches have become a craze. All the best teams and players are trying to join an IPL team. Some say it is because they get a better paycheck, while others say they want to prove that they are better than their opponents.
Catching up with the IPL has not been easy for India’s cricket fans. They had always been aware about IPL and the huge sums that IPL teams earned each year. However, it was difficult for fans to travel to India and cheer for their favourite player or team from an IPL ground. In recent times however, things have changed. Tourism organizations and tour operators have bought tickets for IPL matches from foreign shores and given free trips to India.
