IPL Is Not The Reason For Indian Team’s Failure




Success hides the mistakes and failures makes the reasons. Indian team and IPL are cherished during success but when Indian team failed, it made IPL has the reason for it.

IPL is not the reason for Indian team's failure

IPL is not the reason for Indian team's failure

After Indian team ended their dramatic underdogs run in 2007 to clinch World Twenty20, Indian cricket entered into the new dynamics. Until the success in world cup, Indian team opposed the concept of T20 but after that they adopted T20 has their money child. The approach not only helped the board financially but also sharpened the players skills needed to succeed in modern cricket trends.

IPL Effect:

Cricket attained a new status in India with money as its peer and rest as its follower. BCCI from just being a silent member in ICC became a power house. Suddenly everything changed in ICC where the words of Indians fell in deaf ICC ears 5 years ago now making it look like dump also.

Indian Premier League (IPL) had its tremendous success in first two seasons because of Indian team success internationally.  But TRP ratings were going down right from the first season onwards and crowds too are not pulling in same number season after season.  The major reasons could be Indian team and its players. Indian players playing in IPL inspite of niggles which had grown into big injuries and resulted in missing national duty would have angered many of the Indian fans. Sehwag was out due to shoulder injury for months during each of the last 3 IPL season (missed last 2 World Twenty20 because of shoulder injury), Zaheer too had his share of injuries (missed last Twenty20 world cup) and many other players are exhausted too by playing excessive cricket.

From entertainment to exhaustion:

IPL 4 is a real indication of how much fans started hating IPL. Even after winning the world cup, the league never enjoyed success like before. TRP ratings went down even more and stadiums rarely witnessed full house. One of the reasons could be the fans are exhausted too after two months long world cup and the party at the end. Surprisingly not the players, since almost all Indian world cup winning players played in the IPL and some of them duly paid the price for it through injuries. At the end the whole nation had to undergo a nightmare for 2 months that made even some rare non-cricket fans in India felt disappointed.

Players know their body condition better than anyone. They knew exactly how much niggles they are nursing through each day. So, it’s completely the player fault if he plays in IPL and gets injured. IPL is just another domestic competition but only difference is, players are playing for franchise instead of their state or zonal team. So if players avoid playing for their state or zonal teams then why can’t they avoid playing in IPL? It makes no sense to blame IPL when the fault is with players.

The success of IPL will depend entirely on the success of Indian team but the future of IPL lies in the hands of players and their decisions.
