IPL ends first season

I should say that I didn't watch much of the inaugural Indian Premier League (IPL) season once I realised that the broadcast time was always going to be in the early hours of the morning Melbourne time.

However, I managed to follow the league through the match reports and it would appear like it was a great success.

It was good to see so many Australians do so well in the competition and Shane Warne's team, the Rajasthan Royals beat Chennai Super Kings in the final.

I don't think a lot of countries a lot of countries can run a similar league but India could do it because they have the numbers and also they got lots of sponsorships in order to attract the best players.

It was good to see a number of Australian players do well in the tournament especially with Shaun Marsh get the highest run scorer award with 616 runs for his team the Kings XI Punjab.

I hope that Channel Ten the IPL broadcaster here in Australia will be able to show a highlights package everyday at a time most people can watch but I doubt very much that will happen.
