well I thought I would start this thread for 2 reasons. 1. the IPL auction just happened 2. it has just been announced that all the games will be broadcast live on youtube. The IPL auction was interesting a lot of teams went to boost their bowling lineups with the likes of lou vincent brad haddin Shahid Afridi all missing out and all well known for being big hitters that would suit 20/20 quite nicely. there was some big interest in the bowlers though bond went for some big money to the knight riders and Kemar Roach went for $720 k. some of the kiwis and aussies were probably overlooked as they wouldn't be available for the whole tournament but it still is a bit strange the likes of vincent and haddin didn't get picked up. it was just announced today that all the games will be broadcast live on youtube. this is believed to be the first for a sporting event and not doubt some big money must be involved. this does mean though that everyone in the world will be able to watch the games and see some of the big names of world cricket fight it out against one another. http://tvnz.co.nz/cricket-news/ipl-games-l...youtube-3337418 he Indian Premier League is entering the new world of online, live broadcasts. Organisers have just signed a deal with YouTube, becoming the first sports event broadcast live on the internet in every country. Cricket fans will not only have a dedicated channel, but they will be able to choose their own camera position. IPL comissioner Lalit Modi is clearly excited, saying the March competition will forever change the world of sports broadcasting.
