What Next to Entertain Audience after Ninth Edition of India Premier League Gets Over?

ipl2New Delhi, Wednesday, May 25 – Cricket is the most unpredictable sport in which suspense over a clear winner remains until the last delivery isn’t bowled. It is a different situation when some flawless blitz of the cricketers makes their team inflict humiliating defeat on the opponents much prior than expected as similar to something happened a day ago when AB de Villiers and Iqbal Abdulla made Royal Challengers log a memorable win on Gujarat Lions and be the first team to book a berth in the Finals. It is true that no matter a victory is registered early or at the last moment, the curiosity lies till the end.

The ninth edition of Indian Premier League, which is earning massive popularity for entertaining audiences for more than a whole one-and-a-half month time, is to come into its final stage soon. Many experts predicted that 2016 IPL may not catch the eyes thanks to excessive matches during T20 Cricket World Cup in late March. A few matches seemed getting no attention in the first few days since a number of seats in stadiums were left vacant. But as the time passed by, cricket fans began to jam-pack those grounds where games of participating eight IPL teams were slated to take place. Gujarat Lions, Rising Pune Supergiants, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kolkata Knight Riders, Kings XI Punjab, Delhi Daredevils, Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore tried to put their best foot forward. But those who were able to be top four are GL, RCB, KKR and SRH. Viewers look forward to entertainment and they do not mind watching 20 over game at all for the reason that final outcome is out within four hours.

Each format of cricket has its own significance. It is not that IPL isn’t criticized for players’ auction. It does. Nonetheless, if this part is left, it is a platform where future of India can be nurtured given that young cricketers try their best to stand out amid others and leave a long lasting impression of the audience. Pressure of being prominent enables teenagers and players in their early 20’s to create a bond with senior cricketers and learn more than a few techniques which are required to win contests at different stages, especially when things are not in favor. As a matter of fact, it is not so easy for cricket fans to adjust their regimen after Indian Premier League gets over given that they develop a habit of watching it live everyday for almost a couple of months, which is a considerable amount of time. Even after a few days, the action is going to be missed to a great extent by people of different age groups despite the fact that it is true that just four days remain for ninth season of IPL to come to an end. The Grand Finale is to take place on Sunday at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, wherein the finalists will compete for winner’s trophy

Here is to mention that the harsh weather conditions in most of the Indian states don’t allow organizers to hold any series during peak summer season in view of the fact that it leaves cricketers dehydrated. However, staying a bit far away even for a short time from cricket can’t be imagined by the fans. This is the reason why audiences have been waiting for India tour to Zimbabwe early next month. Without a doubt, Zimbabwe haven’t emerged as a strong team in the recent past as they failed to make efforts to utilize all opportunities in the best way possible that came one after the other and taste victories. They will certainly try to fetch attention of cricket fraternity and fans across the world by defeating India in the upcoming series, which is to be played at Harare Sports Club in Harare from June 11 to June 22.

Indian team will surely not going to consider Zimbabwe an underdog team as not being in mood to see unexpected  defeats similar to something against Bangladesh in their territory. Defeats at the hands of Bangladesh made two-time World Cup winners think over their tactics. Casual approach of some players made Indian side to trounce. But India took revenge against them lately in T20 WC, which will be remembered for Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s brilliant run out against the Tigers that made India emerge better. To be honest, hundred percent efforts were poured by the Indian skipper and teammates that allowed them fight till the last very last moment. Indians can accept anything but not succumbing to Bangladesh and arch-rivals Pakistan. People are inquisitive to see how the team proves its strength in the upcoming tournament after ‘India ka Tyohaar’ finishes.

If truth be told then it was a tad surprising to notice that selectors rewarded players playing domestic cricket over the ones performing nicely in IPL. The players who will soon fly for Zimbabwe are MS Dhoni – the Indian captain, Karun Nair, KL Rahul, Faiz Fazal, Manish Pandey, Ambati Rayudu – who showed his potential to outshine in the ongoing tournament, Rishi Dhawan, Axar Patel, Jayant Yadav, Dhawal Kulkarni, Jasprit Bumrah, Barinder Sran, Mandeep Singh, Kedar Jadhav, Jaydev Unadkat and Yuzvendra Chahal. Focus of the experienced and young guns will be on grabbing the eyeballs through amazing batting, fielding and bowling. The captaincy of Captain Cool Mahendra Singh Dhoni will be of huge significance, giving teammates learn a lot. Eyes are eagerly waiting for the tournament to start in next to no time, hoping cricketers to make use of experience gained during limited over games.
