IPL 2020: Star Sports Hindi again the top-most channel as IPL continues the highest ratings for the second week

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 is now around three weeks old. Obviously, the matches are carried out in empty stadiums. The teams won’t have the support of their 12th man, which is the crowd!

One may think that can have an impact on the business aspect of the sport. However, exactly the opposite of that has happened. Due to the pandemic situation and almost every entertainment source being on hold, more people are tuning in to their TV sets or online platforms. The IPL 2020 is thus set to break all the viewership records.
