Do you think IPL tournament should be played every two years instead of one?

The way this IPL season is dragging itself makes me feel that either the number of teams should be decreased or better still play the IPL every two years. That will give the IPL some value and keep viewership interest. People will never value somthing that happens almost everyday. Now IPL is like a daily soap opera. Initially people wish to watch each and every episode and then dont mind skipping a few of them.

Well, he may be a crook, cheat, fraud and whatever other adjectives we want to add, but he had a vision and a brain to make such a mega event a success.

Yes you are right. It'll definitely lose its excitement if its played every year. But it's just not a tournament, it's a business for the businessmen & film stars. They want to make money every year & all the players want to make money, so that's the reason it's been played every year. Players don't mind playing it every year & same with team owners. Still the game is enjoyable right.

My dear friend, team owners have yet got to break even this year. That means they are likely to post loses this ywar. Let us see, whihc team owner likes that. As you rightly said they are businessmen and have little or no concern for the sport.

I am happy with the present arrangement because I am free and I have time to watch the matches. But office goers will feel it is too much of cricket. Let people skip what they do not want. No problem. those who want can watch, see and enjoy these matches. have a good day

Ha ha ha. Lucky you. But think of the others who are not able to watch these matches. Slowly but surely their interest in IPL will decline. Then what? A business like IPL thrives on popularity. Already the popularity has declined. Stats prove that. Slowly it will decline further, revenue will start to drop. Players will not be paid the astronomical sums they are paid now and franchises will start going into losses. What after that?

Probably you are right. But 8 teams were more than enough.
