The auction shows just how powerful IPL has become in two years. The Sahara group bid for Pune is $370m and is more than the entire amount netted by the BCCI in the auction of 8 teams during the start of IPL. This means that the returns for the existing IPL team owners, assuming each of the teams is worth at least $300m now, are in excess of at least 200% . (Mumbai was bought for $100m by Reliance and now must be worth more than twice that amount). This shows just how much IPL has grown in a short time and how powerful it is.
All this is great for cricket (that is considering you are not anti-IPL or a Pakistani) and India, but many test loving people think that with IPL, test cricket is doomed. And one of those people is none other than one of the most ruthless dictator the world has ever seen. Yes, Hitler knows what cricket is and has even played the game himself. Watch the funny video below showing Hitler's outrage when he learns that he has lost the bid for the Berlin franchisee in the IPL auction.
