In the Coronavirus epidemic, BCCI managed to successfully organize the 13th season of IPL. On the 13th season of the Indian Premier League played this year, the BCCI received a revue of four thousand crore rupees. Not only this, compared to last year, the number of fans watching IPL on TV increased by 25 percent. It was not easy to keep the players and staff safe amid the threat of Kovid 19. Because of this, the BCCI conducted 30,000 RT PCR tests of 1800 people. In this tournament that lasted for 60 days, not a single case of coronavirus came to light.



BCCI treasurer Arun Dhumal has shared the report card of the success of IPL 13. From February this year, Coronavirus started to wreak havoc all over the world, and in the last 6 months, the IPL was the first tournament that was organized on such a large scale. However, the BCCI has not given much information about the earnings from the IPL. But with the successful event, the board managed to save the five-year broadcast deal with Star. Star has paid Rs 16,347 crore to BCCI for five years.

Dhumal said, "The board managed to cut last year's expenses by 35 percent. Four thousand crore rupees were received from IPL this year and on TV also 25 percent of people increased. The opening match of Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings was the highest TRP. Apart from UAE, BCCI also got offers from Sri Lanka for the 13th season of IPL. Since the UAE already had the experience of organizing the IPL, the board thought it better to choose it.
