A month after India had banned the live telecast of Pakistan Super League (PSL), Pakistan have now responded by suspending the broadcast of Indian Premier League, country's Information and Broadcasting minister Fawad Chaudhry confirmed.
“During the PSL, the way the Indian companies and the government treated Pakistan cricket... after that, we can’t tolerate that IPL is shown in Pakistan,” Chaudhry told a Pakistan news channel.
“We tried to keep politics and cricket apart but then the Indian cricket team played matches wearing army caps against Australia.
“There was no action taken against that. I feel if IPL is not shown in Pakistan it will be a loss for IPL and Indian cricket. We are a cricketing superpower in international cricket,” the minister added.
The twelfth edition of the IPL will begin on March 23 with the defending champions Chennai Super Kings taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Certainly, the three biggest tournaments are the IPL, Big Bash and an ICC event. There is enough liquidity (volume of money in the exchange markets) to just do those three tournaments and make a healthy living as a pro-trader if you wanted to.
With the IPL, it is the biggest tournament. The average money traded on a game has been around 60 to 70-million GBP. This year, I expect an IPL match to trade around 80 million GBP. The volume traded on IPL matches has gone up and down over previous years.
The one thing that decides how much gets staked from a cricket point of view is if Indian bettors are able to get involved.
