    What is your opinion on OPL?

    Everybody know about IPL and its success and effect in the world cricket. In our state our Odisha Cricket board initiated a similar cricket league which is known as OPL (Orissa Premier League). OPL - II is going to be start in very near future. In the inaugural edition of OPL, total twelve teams participated. OPL thought that in next edition it could able to add more teams in it. It planned to minimum fifteen teams participation but this time it failed to get it. In contrary few teams withdrew from this event.
    Do you feel OPL is successful as IPL? Is this event helpful to Odisha cricket? What is the main reasons behind the withdrawal of few teams from this event?

    Hi vicky,

    As per the information, OPL (Odisha Premier League) was followed by IPL (Indian Premier League)'s Twenty-20 matches. In the month of May,2011 OPL conducted at Odisha with total 12 teams. Where, many number of Odia film stars participated as a brand-ambassador for their teams. The Rourkela team was the winner of OPL-2011 T-20. In its first T-20, OPL organizer OCA (Odisha Cricket Association) earned (1,19,36,737) 1 crore 19 lac 36 thousand and 737 rupees; due to which vigilance targeted to OPL Office. It was only the humor about OPL; there is nothing more news about failing of OPL. OPL-1 was very successful as OCA Secretary Ashirwad Behera says. Viewers enjoyed it very much.

    Regards,

    Recently report says that five teams withdrew from the second edition of OPL and only seven teams are participating in OPL-II. So, I feel it is a failure of OPL.
    With regards,
