Pitches aren't as good. I like the IPL being here in SA but it was more exiting in india because you had better batting pitches.

its good battle between bat and bowl in South Africa................but if pitches might have been just somewhat better i think we should have seen more great matches or should i say close matches........

a slightly balanced contest between the bat and the ball this time i guess. so,this can filter the players with true class.

150 is something tough to chase here while in India we said that if the team batting first scores 150 then surely it's gonna lose..

Average innings scores are a lot lower this year (by about 15 - 20 runs).

Spinners have stepped up in a big way.

Boundaries are just as small... a little thing that annoys me.

1. No Home and Away games concept.
2. tweaking stupid strategic breaks
3. Pitches not batsman friendly as IPL 08, resulting in lower scores and lower entertainment.
4. Small grounds and crowds.
5. A direr SET MAX coverage, if there could be one.
6. Excruciatingly painful commentators, a conference of the worlds worst. Coney being an exception. (Danny Morrison? Laxman Sivaramakrishnan? That SL commentator? )

Most of the games have been near sell outs so I don't really see why you guys are complaining about the crowds.

Crowd effect (the buzz,the support is not upto the last version),
The pitches (The avg score is close to 150,last week we saw even 130 was winning total,like the T20 WC which was in SA,that time we saw 180-190 scores,not in IPL)
