Meanwhile, Jay Shah promised that BCCI will utilize the revenue to bring about improvement in the domestic structure. “The BCCI will utilize the revenue generated from IPL to strengthen our domestic cricket structure starting from grassroots, to boost infrastructure and spruce up facilities across India and enrich the overall cricket-watching experience,” he said.

On the other hand, many found it surprising that Disney Star did not go all out for the digital rights, given how IPL brought about a massive rise in their subscriptions of the digital wing – Disney+ Hotstar.

Explaining their perspective, Disney Star wrote “We are pleased to extend our association with the Indian Premier League and look forward to offering the next five seasons across our portfolio of television channels. We made disciplined bids with a focus on long-term value. We chose not to proceed with the digital rights given the price required to secure that package.”
