Yuvi speaks

If you had any doubts on IPL's success then this should dispel your fears.

It’s going to be bigger than last year for sure. The Indian fan base in South Africa is huge and we are expecting them to turn up and support their city teams. I am sure that the Punjabi community settled in South Africa will support us. Similarly, those originally from Mumbai would certainly come for Mumbai’s matches.

In an otherwise ringing endorsement of the IPL and his faith on the India diaspora, the fact that he ignored the potential of South Indians settled in SA is the lone sore point.

And the fact that Bengalis will there to support the captain of the day :)

The ticket prices are much cheaper than they were in India. So I think it will pull in large crowds.

I forgot about the Bengalis.:)

The nostalgia for India and the cheap tickets will certainly pull the crowd in.
