IPL is just too darn long

Money talks so unlikely the tournament will reduce in length or size.

 

One thing they could do is award 3 points for a win like in football. 2 points is not enough and keeps too many mediocre teams in the mix. I would be tempted to have 2 divisions with promotion and relegation.

Govt is generating a lot of money from these online gaming platforms. Almost every game they earn ~500 crore INR through taxes.

So I don't think number of matches are going down anytime soon.

I understand the financial aspect as it brings lots of dollars to BCCI but there should be a limit. This tournament is just too long and after a certain point it gets boring. I am sure even players feel the same way but are reluctant to speak due to the money.

 

Do you guys want to see rather a smaller & more competitive IPL?


wayyy too long. But fun to just roast n troll some die hards fans of bottom feeders :)

How long do the other sports leagues like NBA, NHL, MLB, Premier league, La liga happen. How do they sustain the viewer interest for so long. It's quite boring to  follow the IPL even on Cricbuzz now.

Football has a wider audience than IPL and they play like 10 games on weekends.

Most of my friend and family, all over India and outside India too, rarely watch the IPL.  Maybe just the knockout matches at the end. And one or two matches held in their cities. 

So IPL craze during the first few seasons was a metro only thing. Now the real craze is in tier 2 and tier 3 cities with most eyeballs from those places.

All thanks to Jio.

I don't think IPL is long. It cannot be compared to other cricket World tournaments like World Cups. The big difference is that IPL is a "league". By league stanadards in other sports, it's actually quite short.

 

But I wouldn't like IPL to run as long as other sport leagues. It is about enough matches to give all teams a fair chance at winning. I also like the KO format better where the top 2 teams still have a chance even if they lose a KO game.

It's a long, awful tournament with terrible pitches and not enough elite talent to sustain 10 teams. Other than drain the players by adding on to an already taxing domestic schedule, it's doing nothing currently. 

 

But that's only for cricket purists, unfortunately.

It is throwing up young Indian talent that can serve us in future. Not IPL's fault if selectors don't pick them.

Throwing up excessive talent is probably counterproductive.  

 

You cannot invest in players for the long term and it results in chopping and changing every now and then.  

 

It's why our T20 squad is a mess every single time.

my observations of IPL-a significant portions of the matches are just plain boring especially the one played on  roads.

the restriction of only 4 foreign players in the 11  leads to an inferior product.make the SMA the best  tournament for unearthing indian talent,give it better status than a one which nobody watches.

 

So you want our young batters to play against trundlers in SMA and then get into IPL?

 

BCCI only conducts IPL to earn money and to unearth talents. 4 foreign player rule is perfect. Even football leagues like EPL have roster spots reserved for English players.
