The dominance of Hindi in Indian cricket has also increased. Especially Hindi is being liked very much for commentary. In such a situation, the former Indian batsman has also taken tuitions to commentary in Hindi.
English was once popular in Indian cricket, but now Hindi has overtaken it. Its effect has started appearing in the commentary and more and more big cricketers want to do commentary in Hindi. Cricketers like VVS Laxman coming from South India also take tuition for this.
Star and Disney India (Sports) chief Sanjog Gupta said that not only the audience but also the broadcasters and commentators are very happy for the IPL starting on the 9th. He said that Hindi is the biggest market of cricket today. IPL 2020 saw two-thirds of the total audience of Hindi viewers. Earlier the language of cricket on TV was English, but now it has completely reversed. Now more and more people are watching cricket in the Hindi language.
Sanjog said that you must have seen that luminaries like Sunil Gavaskar, Sourav Ganguly, Rahul Dravid, VVS Laxman, and Sachin Tendulkar have tried their hand in Hindi commentary. Today, any big former Indian cricketer wants to commentary in Hindi. VVS Laxman coming from Hyderabad was not very good in Hindi, but he knew that the audience is in Hindi, so he tried to correct his Hindi.
He told, "You would not believe that for about a year, VVS Laxman used to take Hindi tuition for two or three days every week and improved his spoken Hindi a lot. Even today he tries to improve his Hindi. The thing is that Hindi viewership has increased not just in India, but all over the world. "
Decision-based on replay will improve
Sanjog said that we are doing a lot of work on technology. In the next 12 months, you will see that the level of replay and decisions based on them will improve. The use of better technology will help the umpires and the decisions will be accurate. For this, it is necessary to continue investing in technology and to keep the quality of cameras better.
He said that the previous IPL without an audience in the UAE has been a lesson for him and we have understood how disaster can be turned into an opportunity. Cameras can be placed anywhere in the empty stadium. This can significantly change the coverage and take good shots. This will make TV viewers feel good to watch the match.
