Should the Ipl Live Score Tournament Format Be Changed?
A New Milestone In The Field Of Cricket
Come April, and movie makers immediately pick up their feet and start looking for cover. These days there is a new trend in the entertainment industry. This industry, which usually used to be uniform throughout the year, has started to see seasonal trends. No movie maker ever schedules the release of his movie in the months of April and May. Ad makers all over the world see this season as the deciding period of their company's success. Marketers all over the world come up with exciting themes for these two months. The entire country seems to get afflicted by a deadly virus that takes over their minds and hearts - The IPL ipl live score League. The Indian Premier League is currently among the most awaited events of the year. It is viewed by over a billion people worldwide, 70% of which is estimated to be from India and Pakistan alone. It is a treat for all ipl live score lovers; a festival of all sorts for marketers, and big, big business for the BCCI. It all started when T20 ipl live score started getting popular. Originally started by the English and Welsh cricketing boards as an attempt to bring back crowds to stadiums and to woo back advertisers, this new form of ipl live score became a new rage.
Kapil Dev, in the year 2007 developed the Indian ipl live score League that combined the T20 format of live score live score cricket with the European idea of leagues or teams of a mixed nature, with players from different countries mixed together. The idea was bound to be a huge success, but Kapil Dev's dreams were destroyed by the BCCI. They branded the ICL as a rogue organisation, and refused to give it any recognition. Politics too however could not defeat this fabulous idea, which was met by a huge response from viewers all over the world. The BCCI then launched its own version of league matches in the T20 format, and branded it the Indian Premier League or the IPL. IPL was then marketed fabulously by its then chairman, Mr Lalit Modi. It was the first sporting event that was carried over on to YouTube, which took its reach to viewers all over the world. It was launched in the year 2008, with great fanfare. In fact in an ironic twist the Deccan chargers today displayed total team work with everyone trying to do their bit whereas the Bangalore Royal challengers tried to go for the X factor individualism (Van de Merwe, Dravid, Taylor all attempting to close it out as heroes when just staying around would have seen them home). But there will be a million what if's - I wanted to ask a different question.
Does the IPL format need a change - does the best team really win? Even if you adjust it for the finals and semifinals; Deccan Chargers would end with 18 points. Two points shy of Delhi with an extra game and a worse net run rate. And their IPL scorecard against Delhi would be 2-1 in favor of Delhi. (Actually 2-0 for Delhi vs Deccan and 0-1 for Delhi vs Adam Gilchrist). Doesn't sound totally fair. You'd argue that this is true for all major competitions including live score live score cricket itself. Yes, that's right however those leagues aren't as elaborate as this one - ie 8 teams playing 14 games each. It's one thing to have 2 groups with 3-5 games each and a knock out stage and quite another to play so many games and then hinge result on one bad day. Take a look at the points table on to understand the numbers above.
