    Have you watched the IPL yet?

    I haven't but then the times are not good for me with work the next day and I always have other stuff to do the next day as well.

    Yeah me too. On the working days I just tape it and watch it the next evening after I come home from work. On the weekends, Ten HD shows the earlier games at around 8:30pm so that's a fairly good time to watch at least one game. Ofcourse, there's always highlights on youtube.

    Saw the replay of the first match. Haven't been able to catch other replays as they seem to be on when I'm out and I'm not up late enough to see it live.


    Read the scorecards and run downs the next day, though.

    Only missed 2-3 games so far. Sleep is over rated.

    I've seen bits and pieces, but I find it hard to sit through a whole game of 20/20, honestly.

    I'd like to watch Warne bowl again though, so I'll try and catch one soon.

    Watched all of the first game, and stay up to watch the first innings of the rest, other than the early games that start at 10.30pm.

    And yes sleep is very over-rated.

    Yes I've watched whenever I can. With uni, work and the need to actually study its a bit tough to watch every game, and I'm not willing to make as much a sacrifice of sleep as I did with the Ashes or Ind in England test series.

    It's AFL until 10.30pm and then the game is on after that so I'll try and watch it tonight.

    Yeah, ditto. Probably would if I did. In fact Sultana are offering a short-term subscription for 15 for the duration of the IPL & I'm seriously considering it.

    Two of the poll-options apply to me - "hate Twenty20" and "no". I don't even know where I'd watch it if I wanted to, that's how little I care about the format.

    As I've said several times - I applaud those behind the IPL for their (possible) good ideas, but it's of no interest whatsoever to me.

    If these were one-day games, it possibly might - but only possibly might - be different. I can't shake the feeling that if they were, they'd be 340-plays-220 very often, which again I find of little interest. If they were properly played one-day games on pitches and ground-sizes that discouraged such scoring, however, I'd be in there like a shot.

    Yeah, but if you have a HD Television Set or a HD Set top box then you should have access to Ten HD. Ten HD is showing the game live from 8:30pm whilst regular Ten is showing it delayed after the football.
