IPL T20 Cricket – A Sensational Cricket Revolution by Brenda Maxson
Cricket is considered as one of the most popular sports of the world. It has grown as the most played sports throughout the world. It has so many variations and game types and as a result it is popular among the people of all ages. Until the last few years there were only two forms of cricket - five days test matches and 50 over one day matches. One of the most recent game types is t20 cricket. This type of format was created in 2003 internationally and ever since then it has created a great hype among the worldwide fans.
Twenty20, or t20, as it sometimes called, is now accepted as the most popular format throughout the world. It is officially accepted as a competitive game type by ICC. Most probably, this is the most important reason of its massive popularity. After the successful launches of t20 cricket world cup and IPL t20 cricket tournament, it has experienced the highest popularity. The length of the game is the biggest reason why it is so popular. Unlike the traditional formats, these types of matches only last for about three hours generally. This also makes it easier to be televised.
Generally a Twenty20 tournament, like IPL, is quite different than any other test or one-day tournaments. In IPL t20 cricket tournaments, there are so many arrangements for fun and entertainment. Apart from cricketing entertainments, there are also music, bollywood superstars, and other celebrity presence. Popular hindi songs are being played during the matches and cheerleaders dance with every wickets fall and boundaries. It is all about a complete package of entertainment. The players, here, are auctioned and the bollywood actors and actresses, industrialists, business owners buy team. Teams are made under the name of different states and regions of India. Here all the domestic players can get a chance to show a skill before the worldwide people. If the domestics and not so famous players can play well in IPL, they can make a good impression on the mind of the selectors. As a result they can be included as a member in the national team.
In term of fresh cricketing entertainment also IPL has achieved a great place among the mind of the people. The fans would always like to watch all the cricketing giants playing in a same team or playing against each other. Apart from that, in IPL we can also watch many famous players who have already retired. So it is really a great place to enjoy fresh cricket also.
Twenty20 format has also received a lot of criticism from the people. There are so many critiques who say that this format will cause an end of traditional test matches. Although it has created a worldwide market among the people, it has gotten several criticisms ever since it was created. Though in general t20 cricket is quite successful, but the main complaint against this is that it involves a lot of other things rather than cricket.
In most of the cases, it is definitely close to standard tournaments. However, in some cases it is a little different and involves a little bit about fun. Any new thing should always be welcomes if it is positive. So, t20 cricket or more precisely, IPL t20 cricket should also be welcomed heartily.
