The idea of IPL clicked so successfully as most people in India worship cricket as the supreme game......whereas other games hardly attract them and hence are ignored.........

The success behind IPL is a good marketing of regional or local feelings. The English Premier League or the Spanish League where Participants bear local names have created mass hysteria. Cricket will be a distant second in India also second if Football rightly marketed with moderately big names in it. The National Football league or he Santosh Trophy have a big potential but are not getting right patronage.

In India, cricket is the most accepted game and is treated as religion by many, but that is not the case with other games

IPL Kochi team and Pune team sold at Rs3200/crores. Total value of IPL team may be much higher and in lacs of crores now. Government has to incur huge expenses in providing enough infrastructures and enough security. People of India specially working class spoil their working hours to a considerable extent in watching this or that cricket match on TV. If the sponsors and buyers of IPL teams avoid investing in IPL and prefer investing the same fund in some industry, there will be addition of job opportunities. Common men will be benefited only if the same fund is invested in Hospitals, schools and colleges providing free and quality service

In a country where majority of population is unable to earn even bread and butter for survival, it is justified to spoil so many amounts on IPL and allow dirty politicians to focus on such avoidable costly game at the cost of poor Indians?

Can we not learn lessons from other developed countries like USA, UK, France, China, Japan, and Germany ...more
