Mumbai: In the IPL 2020, defending champion Mumbai Indians (MI) once again won the title by doing amazing work. This time due to Corona virus (Covid-19), there were no spectators on the ground, but even then the popularity of T20’s biggest lagi did not decrease. This year people gave their love to this league by sitting in their homes. This is the reason that viewership has broken the record in this season.
In the 13th season of IPL, viewership has increased by a record 28 percent compared to the previous season.
IPL chairman Brijesh Patel said, ‘IPL has always been a world-class sporting event’.
Thanking the title sponsor Dream XI, he said, “With the advent of Dream 11 as the title sponsor, viewers got involved in large numbers through the fantasy game”.

Four large ‘virtual fan walls’ were created in the tournament played without spectators amidst the corona virus epidemic that included pre-recorded videos of the cheerleaders.
IPL teams Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals started digital campaigns like ‘Mi Live’, ‘Paltan Play’ and ‘Super Royal’ to connect with the audience.
Let us know that about 200 million people have seen the opening match of the IPL played this year. More than 200 million viewers tuned in to watch the match. This is the largest figure in the inaugural match of any sports league in the country. No league has ever received such a large number of spectators in its first match. This is a big record in itself.
