    Global impact of IPL

    Whats the effect globally.
    Heard it got a lot of viewers on setanta.
    Got a good following on channel ten in australia.
    Got a big following in south africa.
    Am interested how it went in non test playing countries?

    I'm not sure it really matters. At least the big wigs at the IPL don't really care (as much) about global marketability. The money comes from Indian eyes, and the contracts overseas for TV rights are nice, but they are chump change.

    I think it would be nice if this were to see the game be spread throughout the world.
    Its got greater coverage than the 20/20 world cup.
    I think its been a psoitive vehicle to sell the game and grow it.
    Fact of seeing the best of players playing in a competitive world league,of course based in india.

    I'd bet that the majority of NZers won't even be able to tell you the winner of the tournament, even though we had coverage of basically every game live.

    Same here in Aus where, incidentally, it was a flop for Channel 10.

    I enjoy T20 and dont mind IPL at all but I dont think I even checked a scorecard let alone watched a game.

    that was probably partially to do with channel 10 showing only a hnadful oft he matches live or the stupidity of showing a completed match when they could've shown the live match now and the completed one later.

    Channel 10 would have been better served replaying the previous night's games in prime time ahead of Big Brother; it might not have been a roaring success but it would have rated better than that steaming pile.

    Seriously, the timeslot as much as anything has a lot to do with it's failure to rate surely.

    They played all the matches, but none of which were live, they were all played at around midnight.

    Zero impact in England to be honest, although the T20 looks to be getting hyped up already..

    I read it rated higher than what 10 expected but obviously not enough to go head to head with prime time shows in peak ratings season. Lots of emails about a 1 hour highlights package which they're considering taking from S-Max as well.

    Obviously the one thing holding the competition back was the timings but I don't think the Aussie market is important enough for Modi to compromise the prime time dosh he's getting in India.

    Yes, I've spoken to a lot of people who aren't big cricket fans who would've watched it had it been on at a reasonable hour.

    No network would put it on in prime time here in Australia. That's why there is no tri-series as from next summer and why, last summer, Channel Nine refused to show (for the first time ever) two of the games between the non-Australian teams. The reason is simple - cricket does not rate in prime time unless our national team is playing. To think Deccan v Mumbai would rate in prime time is, with respect, fanciful.

    Loved it when it was on Ten HD, live. Much better timeslot. I guess Ch 10's problem with it would be commercial, because they'd be making more money showing Guthy Renker 30min advertisments than the cricket. Surely it's a great chance to utilise the Ten HD, and chop the night's worth down to an hour, and show the previous night's events at 7pm or so.
