IPL 2009: Why South Africa, Why not England?

Indian Premier League (IPL) is the richest cricket event in the world and it seems that very soon, it will outshine any other cricket event in terms of generating money. Of course, you have to understand that people love to watch Twenty20 matches because they finish within just 3-4 hours and this gives a lot of excitement to the viewers in India. Well, people from some other countries like to enjoy IPL too but the main market for the organizers is undoubtedly India. What has happened now is that because too much dependence on just one country, organizing this event has become a big problem this year simply because it coincided with the general election in India.

Now, it has been decided that IPL 2009 will be held at South Africa. Two countries were being considered- South Africa and England. Many people felt that England would have the choice simply because England is the birthplace of cricket and England has strong media. It seems that BCCI officials wanted to save some money and South Africa is much less inexpensive compared to South Africa. I also think that it is a wise decision. Not only England would have been more expensive but also Sky Sports will be busy with England series.
