Now, let me come back to my main intention of writing this hub that is to write on the advantages of IPL, such as:
40% say that they imagine to put IPL above country as international schedule is usually very hectic.. They never change their country but their priorities change in IPL according to the franchisee who hires them for his team.
The advantages of IPL are so many especially for the cricketers are that which can be substantiated by the survey result conducted by the Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations (FICA). Many are retired or those who are not retired but are no more getting selected in the national or domestic team has rose to the occasion and performed very well. Interestingly, they usually play against their national team mates which is a friendly fun so it is a global friendship zone. It’s a punch of different cultures and values.
J: One more thing where IPL proved to be very lucrative is the way in which the franchisee spends on the comforts of the cricketers so they remain always in high spirits. Mostly, home crowd or away from home supporting the home team is quite natural. The best part is the cricketers of India are also getting well connected to the other parts of the country. It’s a bond developing within the country and knowing about it well.
G: In IPL, the pay package in general is huge and it increases according to the ability of the players. Obviously, many cricketers get an opportunity to show their cricketing skill as well as get established in return. What makes it a fun watching is many spectators do not support their home team rather they cheer the team in which their favourite cricketers are playing. It is not like a national team in which maximum of 15 players are usually selected before any tournament. Thus, IPL gives fun to the players too.
