BANGALORE, INDIA: Two contrasting games into the high-octane tournament, the sixth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 6) is well poised to enthrall Twenty20 (T20) aficionados with its nail-biting finishes, like the Royal Challengers Bangalore vs Mumbai Indians duel on Thursday, and unlimited entertainment.
While not many would disagree that there is nothing like catching the action live from the stadium, there might be others who can’t physically make it to the venues. But they can take heart from the fact that there are plentiful other avenues for them to take in the cricket extravaganza from the comfort of their homes, offices or even when they are traveling.
