IPL 2018: 5 reasons why IPL 2018 is going to be bigger than ever
The Indian Premier League has been the best cricket tournament in the world. Over the past 10 years, the IPL has taken the standard of the game to a whole new level. Even though the league has been through many controversies over the years, it has not lost its fans and this is one of the greatest signs of its growth.
Although the league was said to be nothing more than a source of entertainment during the initial years, it has taken a different route altogether and it is turning out to be a talent producing factory. Over the decade, the IPL has given a platform to hundreds of young talents who hone under the guidance of world-class coaches and players.
With the season 11 to be held this year, the league is entering its second decade and this year's edition promises to be exciting than ever. Here are a few reasons why this year's season is going to be bigger than ever.
#5 Return of the Chennai Super Kings and the Rajasthan Royals
Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals, the two franchises were suspended from the league for a period of 2 years and thus were not part of the previous two seasons. It was speculated that the two teams may have lost most of their fans after being involved in wrongdoings that led to their suspension. But the teams have already created a buzz among the fans even before the start of the tournament.
The craziness among Super Kings' fans is on such a high level that they are crowding the stadium even during the practice sessions. Chennai Super Kings have been one of the most successful teams in the IPL, having qualified for the playoffs every single season that they have participated.
With the return of the two teams, the IPL is going to be as entertaining as it used to be before the banning of the two teams and the tournament is sure to see skyrocketing TRPs this year.
