IPL season 2 was going through a tough phase since the last few weeks. The Indian government and the BCCI had various talks regarding security etc. as the IPL schedule clashed with the elections. But the IPL commissioner Lalit Modi was sure that the IPL season 2 would surely take place and that too during the same period. And after realizing that the talks with the govt. were going nowhere, he finally announced that the Indian Premier League would be moved abroad this year. England and South Africa were the two prime options for staging the IPL but SA got the edge as the weather and other factors were more suitable for the league. The dates were also changed a bit and IPL 2 would start from April 18 instead of April 10 as planned previously. The number of matches would remain the same at 59 but it would be played in a constricted period of 36 days as opposed to the 45 days initially planned.
Lets wait and see if it is a success after its shift to South Africa. I think it will marginally recover its staging costs and nothing else.
What do think will be outcome of IPL season 2 in terms of revenue.
