BCCI secretary Jay Shah is overwhelmed with TV viewership in the ongoing Indian Premier League and thanked fans for their support to the tournament, which has witnessed a disruption earlier this year owing to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The IPL 2021 was postponed in May due to several COVID cases inside the tournament’s bio-bubble in India. The second leg of the event started in the UAE this month, and has seen a growing interest among fans, leading to an increase in viewership.
I am delighted to share that #IPL2021 continues to register significant growth in viewership
380 million TV viewers (till match 35)
12 million more than 2020 at the same stage
