Also, check digital effects:-

You also need to check the digital influences – in 2017 there were around 56 crore digital viewers and in 2021 that number went up to 66.5. You expect it to grow even more in the years to come.

There will be 94 matches in the IPL in 2027 and about its management and its impact on international cricket, Shah said – this is one aspect that we have worked on.

The IPL will have an official window of two and a half months from the next ICC FTP calendar so that all top international cricketers can participate. We have had discussions with various boards as well as the ICC.

Rejecting reports of a 30 percent drop in IPL viewership, he said, “The viewership of IPL in 2020 and 2021 was very high because live cricket was a good medium of entertainment in the era of Covid-19.

There is no reduction in viewership due to this:-

This year when the effect of Covid-19 subsided, people started coming out of the house. But this did not reduce the viewership. People enjoyed matches at places like restaurants and pubs. The number of viewers in the digital medium has increased significantly.

India’s international cricket will be affected due to the long IPL season but Shah said the BCCI is committed to international cricket.
