भारत आज इतक्या दयनीय अवस्थेत जाण्यामागे अनुभवी खेळाडूंचे 'Poor shot selection' हे तगडं कारण आहे. IPL चालु असल्यासारखे बॅट फिरवुन एकामागे एक परतले आहेत..
आधी रोहितने तो घाणेरडा शाॅट खेळुन सेट विकेट घालवली. कमिन्स, स्टार्क, बोलेंड या सगळ्यांना शांत करण्यात यशस्वी ठरला असताना नॅथन
लायनच्या पहिल्या ओव्हरलाच तो अनपेक्षित शाॅट खेळुन आऊट झाला. शुभमन गीलची विकेट वादग्रस्त ठरली. रोहितच्या मागे मागे सेट झालेला चेतेश्वर पुजारा पुन्हा त्याच्या अख्ख्या जिंदगीत न खेळलेला शाॅट खेळताना विकेट टाकुन निघुन गेला. आज विराट चांगला खेळत असताना त्याच्या आवडीचा कव्हर
ड्राईव्ह मारताना विकेट टाकुन गेला. जाडेजाला बाॅल समजायच्या आधी त्याची विकेट पडली. शेवटची आशा असणारा अजिंक्य रहाणे किपर अलेक्स कॅरीच्या हातात बाॅल मारून माघारी परतला.😢
'टेस्ट क्रिकेट' चे टेंपरामेंट अलग लेव्हलला आहे हे आज पुन्हा एकदा सिद्ध झाले. भारतीय संघात असणार्या सगळ्यांनी

#IPL is spreading hate amongst the citizens and minting money.

This is not a new analysis and it's known for most people but after watching yesterday's incident between #RCBvLSG this is the right time for all the cricket fans not to fall into this trap. 1/n
IPL has always been everything about #MONEY and #entertainment. The teams were based on most popular cities in #India so that each team will have larger fan following and representation, just like #football leagues. 2/n
The people behind #IPL were/are biggest #businessmen, #Celebrities from various fields and #politicians. It gathered enough attention when it got started as new league in 2008. Just because IPL has celebs backing doesn't mean it's gonna be a superhit league in the long run. 3/n

How not to do social media ‘analysis’: a lesson in two stories - #GeorgeSoros and #Bollywood

All to the courtesy of Associate Professor Joyojeet Pal @joyopal of @UMich and his intern @SheyrilAgarwal

Thread: Image
𝗖𝗮𝘀𝗲 1: #𝗦𝗼𝗿𝗼𝘀

Laced with data & gimmick, डाटा नंदन posted a thread on how Soros was vilified by Indian RW

But he DIDN’T challenge any facts at all. Not even that #Soros himself takes credit behind regime change

So what’s the point? Soros mustn’t be criticized!

And what’s that appealing data and analysis?

He presented a collage of people reacting to the story on Soros as evidence of a coordinated campaign- a data taken in a course of just TWO DAYS!

With the excitement for the #IPL2023 building I’ve been looking into the data and seeing what insights it tells us. If you don’t like IPL & data I suggest you look away now 👀 for those that do buckle up as it’s a VERY long ride with some new aspects analysed.
For all players their career T20 figures were used, those who haven’t played aren’t displayed
Team battings averages - the figures for batters, wicket keepers and all-rounders have been used
Teams bowling averages - the figures for bowlers and all-rounders have been used
Let’s start with looking at the makeup of each franchise. There seems to be a growing focus on all-rounder’s with 45% of LSG’s squad being ALR. RR have 45 % of their squad as bowlers, are they going with the ‘batters win you games, bowlers win you tournaments’ approach? #IPL2023

Why is Mukesh Ambani, inspite of paying $2.7 Billion to get IPL Streaming Rights planning to broadcast it for FREE?

How he is planning to disrupt the OTT industry that he did a few years back with the telecom industry through JIO. (1/n)
#IPL #IPLonJioCinema #India
1) Increased traffic rate
The first and foremost thing an OTT company does is to reach their content and episodes to a large number of audience. This is the most toughest of all because people want a strong reason to try out your new OTT platform. (2/n)
Since IPL is watched by crores of people all over the world of different age groups from small children to retired people, it becomes relatively easy for the JIO OTT to bring in all those people and make them download the app and sign them in to the OTT. (3/n)

#Cricket in #America

The idea of a T20 League in America is nearing close to an eventual start. Here's a quick & short #thread on what's happening there.

Major League Cricket (#MLC) will be hosting its first player draft on March 9 at the NASA Space Centre in Houston, Texas.

It's finally all happening and you can see the footprints of #IPL already in a substantial manner.

But before I get to that, here's a bit on the draft.

Cricketers from all over the world who've settled in / relocated to America over the years will be part of the draft.

For instance, Corey Anderson now lives in Dallas. Unmukt Chand is based out of Philadelphia. Liam Plunkett lives there too. There are more.

Then there are cricketers playing MLC Div-2 (the feeder line). In 1st week of March, I'm hearing there's a scouting programmed planned.

Women's #IPL franchises

An interesting week is coming up. A total of 29 bid documents (ITT) have gone on sale and five #WIPL franchises are in the fray, waiting to be bought.

Even if a dozen of them come to the bidding table, consider it to be a winning exercise.

And will at least a dozen come? Well, it looks like.

Remember -- not every single party that buys the ITT buys because it wants to bid. Some buy it to see what's the business model all about.

So, who all have bought? And who may bid?

Who have bought: All 10 men's IPL franchises, Kotak, Haldiram, GMR, Capri Global, Torrent, Adani, JSW (not sure), few agencies, Aditya Birla Group, a pvt equity company & definitely some others.

Who may bid: Expect 8 out of 10 franchises to definitely submit (7 strong) bids.

Will be sharing my thoughts on the squad of every IPL team after the recently concluded auction and if they have improved or not from the previous seasons on paper. Team 1 is Lucknow Supergiants.

#IPL #IPLAuctions #iplauction2023 Image

LSG in KL, QdK, Hooda, Pooran & Stoinis have a very good Top 5 when it comes to skill. Their bowling and various all rounders make sure that balance will never be their issue. They are one team that can make do without the impact player rule.

#IPLAuctions #IPL2023 ImageImage

For 3 seasons in a row, some would argue it's 4, KL Rahul has not batted the way he can. And that has had it's cascading effects. Apart from that, Stoinis's usage with the bat was poor by LSG last season. And their bowling didn't deliver as well as it should have. ImageImageImage

"My father's dreams for me were connected to cricket. I knew if I did well in cricket, his soul would rest in peace", says 24-year-old #ChetanSakariya who made quite an impression with his IPL debut.

#IPL #IPL2023 #Cricket #Passion #Inspiration
Hailing from the small town of Vartej in Gujarat, Sakariya was the sole breadwinner for his family. He worked at his uncle's stationery shop in Bhavnagar as his father, a lorry driver, was bedridden after suffering a few accidents.
In return, his uncle helped nurture his cricketing dreams. After much hard work, the boy who once didn't have money to buy cricket shoes got a chance to play in the Saurashtra under-16 team.

Laying bare some comparisons...

A short #Thread

After the recent #IPLMediaRights auction, the value of a single game touched US$15.1m (US$6.2b for a total of 410 games). That's Rs 118 cr per game (total of Rs 44,390 cr for 410.)

In doing so, the per-match value in IPL crossed the per-match value of the English Premier League (EPL). That bit is right. EPL per-match value at present exchange stands at US$11m.

At 380 games, that's a total of US$12b for a three-year rights cycle.

But fair enough.

However, the comparisons with NFL (at US$17m per game) are not correct. There are some calculation errors on the chart.

We have been making an enormous mistake in determining the value of the NFL rights from a per-match perspective.

Something to ponder...

The money that's come in from sale of #IPLMediaRights and the sponsorships that'll come in over the next five years promise to take the overall central revenue pool of the Indian Premier League just beyond Rs 54,000 crore approx.

Just a broad figure.

In the previous rights cycle -- that same value was around Rs 21,000 cr.

Around 24% of this figure (we'll take Rs 90 cr per season as avg) was set aside as player-purse / season.

That's approx 4500 cr for 5 yrs across 10 teams (Rs 450 cr / team).

Money reserved for players.

Now if the same percentage value has to be applied to the new commercias that are in place, then 24% of Rs 54,000 crore would mean an approximate Rs 12,500 cr.

(Although I believe that 24% should also go up). Anyway...

These are just broad back-of-the envelope figures.

Dear @StarSportsIndia now that we are stuck with you for next 5 years, please do listen to feedback from us, please do get rid of the Cringe Commentary panel, never let Bollywood people commentate in IPL matches (Aamir Khan in IPL 2022 ruined the experience to underground level)
With due respect, Please don't let Sunil Gavaskar roam anywhere near Commentary box. Have professional commentators, that would resolve around 90% of our issues.
DON'T RELEASE CRINGE IPL THEME SONGS, we are happy to accept that you simply can't make IPL song, but not Cringe songs
You SUCK beyond bearable, but we can't do anything. IPL is gonna be huge... around 5-6-7 months, onus on you to not ruin this for us and YOU SUCK🙏🏻

Why do you think Amazon stayed away from the #IPL media rights auction?

Several reasons probably. Yesterday I shared two probable reasons that came to mind. Let's dig deeper on another point.

Prime has 22-odd million subscribers in India. Second after Hotstar at 46+ million.

Amazon has invested close to 6.5 billion dollars in their India business operations over the last 7+ years.

They need to infuse further to retain their e-retail market share which stands at close to 30% right now (media estimates).

Now imagine if Amazon had come to bid for Package B & C in IPL.

They would be looking at an average spend of US& 4 billion approx?

That's 75% of their total business investments in India over the last 7 yrs.

#IPL Media Rights

So many Qs coming, so let me quickly answer some…

1) The e-auction won’t be televised.
Why? Because numbers can’t be revealed mid-process and if numbers can’t be shared then there’s nothing to share. : )

2) E-auction will begin at 11 am Sunday.

In the fray: Viacom, Disney-HotStar, Sony, Zee, Times Internet, SuperSport, FunAsia.

Almost all names are familiar. FunAsia is a content aggregation company with firm footing in FM markets.

3) Auction will begin for Pkgs A & B. Each incremental bid is of Rs 50 lac for these packages (which will later be increased to Rs 1 cr per bid and more, if need be).

Incremental bids for Pkg C will be at Rs 15 lac and for D at Rs 10 lac (both can be increased as required).

#IPL numbers...

When BCCI first announced the sale of IPL media rights, the total reserve price -- from where the bidding will start -- was pegged at Rs 32,890 cr.

That number was based on 74 matches per year for five years.

That was just an average count.

Potential bidders sought clarifications over that number and asked BCCI to give a more exact idea on the possible number of matches every season for the next five years.

BCCI is planning an expansion of IPL. However 2024 is an election year in India.

Therefore, until 2024, they cannot increase the number of matches -- at least that's what the Board was advised internally.

So what has the BCCI done for now... It has asked broadcasters to take the following into consideration:

#Thread #IPL #MediaRights

#Viacom & #Amazon

So, as I mentioned in my previous thread, these two players – from the list of ‘Big 5’ – need a separate mention.

For the uninitiated, this is a follow-up on my previous thread, you can read 👇:

First things first. To set the mood for this thread, I’ll recommend listening to the Jeff Bezos song on YouTube, if you haven’t already. It’s a “masterpiece” 😊 ().

Funnily, I keep thinking, Amazon executives will be warming up listening to this.

Just the reference of #Viacom & #Amazon in the same sentence lays down so many subtexts.

It makes us think of so many battles within battles – Reliance vs Amazon, Mukesh Ambani vs Jeff Bezos, e-retail wars, giant market footprints, Forbes rich list, etc etc etc…

#Thread #IPL Media Rights


We’re fast approaching the Sunday, June 12, when action (actually, auction) begins. 12 parties have bought the Invitation To Tender (ITT). 11 are expected to come to the bidding table.


While there are close to a dozen contenders in play, the big piece of action is more likely to revolve around what I’m now calling: ‘The Big-5’ – Viacom-led JV, Disney-Hotstar, Sony, Amazon & Zee.

Today’s about these ‘big’ names.


Why are these ‘Big 5’ likely to rule the auctions more than the others? Because, while it’s the cricket rights that are at sale, the bigger picture is not JUST about cricket.

I’ve mentioned this earlier too. Cricket is also the catalyst.
