I am disappointed that this right went for under $ i billion. IPL rights had gone for $2.55 billions.

If Supreme Court was not interfering in the matters of BCCI then BCCI would have got a much bigger deal than $ 944 millions. I was expecting nearly $ 2 billions. :)

Coming to PSL being bigger than IPL, IPL earning from two matches ($ 17 millions) is more than what PSL earns in three years ($ 15 millions).

Another fun fact is-Reliance Industries (owners of Mumbai Indians) annual revenue is $51 billions, which is bigger than Pakistan's national budget ( $ 48 billions).
