Why is T20 cricket so popular?
T20 cricket is the shortest and most thrilling format of cricket that has gained immense popularity among fans and players alike. The format offers explosive hitting, fast-paced action, and constant twists and turns that keep the viewers hooked. T20 cricket is also ideal for today’s busy lifestyle as it lasts only about 3.5 hours per match, making it easy to watch and enjoy.
T20 cricket has also helped expand the reach and appeal of cricket to new markets and audiences. The format has attracted many young and casual fans who may not have the patience or interest to watch longer formats of the game. T20 cricket has also spawned various domestic leagues around the world such as IPL, BBL, CPL, PSL, and more that showcase local talent and generate huge revenue and fan following.
