For the uninitiated, IPL is an acronym for Indian Premier League, which is a popular cricket league on the lines of NFL and EPL involving professional cricketers all around the world. The IPL enters the third season in 2010 and there will be a total of 59 matches spanning over a a 44-day period starting March 2010.

Update: IPL 2022 Live streaming links During IPL 2 (in 2009), matches were planned to be streamed live via the official website of IPL, but it was a major failure with people complaining the quality of streams to be below par. Luckily, this time around, all the matches of IPL 3 will be streamed live on Youtube’s Official IPL channel – IPLWillow!

What does IPL 3 Live streaming deal means for Youtube?

This will be the first time ever, any major sporting event will be broadcast live online on Youtube. Cricket, being a popular sport only in few countries like India, Australia, and UK, I believe this is the right step by Google to test the preparedness of Youtube to be the official online broadcaster of other major sporting events like Olympics & FIFA World Cup! From BCCI’s perspective, it will help them to take the ever-growing game of Twenty-20 cricket to many more people across the world through Youtube. However, it’s not clear if the rights have been sold for a specific period of years to Google or whether it’s a revenue-sharing deal. Just in case if it is not clear for you yet, you can watch IPL 2010 cricket live streaming on Youtube at absolutely Free of cost! [via]ToThePC
