IPL 2010 Starts tomorrow !

The third edition of the Indian Premier League starts tomorrow. Apart from World T20 and World Cup, IPL has become the most exciting and interesting cricket tournament ever. With all those theories and controversies about the commercialization of cricket what I believe is that it has now become a business, but still I don’t care about that as long as it gives entertainment. These days all those cricket experts talks about preserving test cricket and about limiting T20s.But I think its T20s that has made cricket more popular . And with T20s, cricket is no longer a game to be watched by old people and kids who have a lot of time to kill in their day time. It has become a game where people can enjoy even after coming home after a tiring day at the office without missing any moment of action.
It is still unclear whether some local TV channel is telecasting this tournament. In last two tournaments Sirasa TV (IPL 1) and Channel Eye (IPL 2) telecasted these matches. But still I did not see any advertisement on these channels about IPL 2010. Anyway this time all the matches of IPL will be broadcasted live on YouTube Official Channel for IPL 2010. This is done according to an agreement between IPL and Google (who owns YouTube). Though neither of them has revealed the conditions of the agreement it is believed that IPL and Google will share the revenues from advertisements and sponsorships. Anyway let’s hope that at least the telecast on YouTube is not interrupted by advertisements.
Most of the teams have same squads as last year but there are some new players in action as well. Hope this time Sri Lankan players will make their mark at IPL. Sanga has been given a chance to show his leadership skills this time.Also hope that Dilshan may play well and score a hundred this season. The Sri Lankan all rounder’s Thissara Perera and Angelo Mathews will be playing for CSK and KKR respectively. And hope that Sanath will play some wonderful innings at least to get some more votes :P
