Twenty million people watched the match on TV and online.
After a long battle in Corona, the IPL match in Mumbai has been played in Mumbai with the match between Mumbai and Chennai. Authorities are forced to keep the stadium without spectators because of Corona. As a result, income has naturally decreased in this sector.
Corona is forced to watch the match on TV. So this time the number of viewers on TV and digital screens will touch the record that the channels had previously expected. That is what happened in reality. The world record was set in the inaugural match of the IPL!
In the first match, a record number of viewers watched Dhoni’s Chennai vs Rohit Mumbai match on TV. BCCI secretary Joy Shah himself said that the Broadcast Audience Research Council report said that 200 million people had witnessed the Chennai-Mumbai match on TV and online platforms. To date, so many people have not seen the opening match of any league or tournament in the world. The viewership of the football match has also been defeated by the viewership of the first match.
