home-bred T20 cricket league will determine its viability for the future On April 4IPL 5 kicks off with a 76-match season featuring nine teams in 54 days Andalthough its been said beforethis really is the pivotal year for the premier sports league in India Besides the obvious controversies and hoopla surrounding the great Indian roadshowthe primary reasons why this season is so critical to the future of IPL and cricket are: viability and perception From the perspective of the initial eight franchisesat the conclusion of IPL 5the league will essentially have arrived at the halfway point And now is when the true test of the IPL begins The league is expected to be an independently profitable entity by year fivewith both franchises as well as IPL generating profits through sponsorshipsbroadcastingmerchandise and gate revenues Year 2012 is when the central revenue pool sponsors contracts conclude and negotiations for the future commence The valuations of sponsorships will depend entirely on how IPL 5 fares in terms of attendance and viewership Although the IPL and the BCCI have traditionally maintained confidentiality when it comes to revenue-sharing and overall profitabilityit is understood that milestone-related changes in the central revenue pool sharing are set to commence from 2013 onwardswith an increase in the revenue percentages for the league and a reduced percentage for individual franchisees The initial principle behind this was fair and consistent with international norms Once the franchisees were given the initial financial support via a larger share of the central revenue pool and broadcasting rightsthey would eventually be able to generate profitable verticals and enhance their revenues through the local sponsorship poolincreasing gate revenues and by building upon team-specific merchandising and premiums This has not happenedand the ground reality is that merchandise and gate revenues have clearly not evolved due to reasons within as well as outside the control of the teams and the league And the mismatched revenue projections have led to friction between the league and the franchisees Already two of the original franchises are in the midst of arbitration proceedings Rajasthan Royals and the Kings XI Punjab Of the two additional franchises bought at an exorbitant costthe Kochi franchise no longer existsand the Sahara-owned Pune team is only participating this season after a temporary truce Its future remains uncertain There are question marks surrounding the validity of the franchise valuationsand those can only be answered definitively if any of the franchises are sold by the current owners to interested investors at a significant premium in line with projected valuations Liquidity and tangible prices for the teams will go a long way in answering questions about the leagues future Ironicallythe one team which has found a buyer is Rajasthan Royalsbut the IPL governing council is yet to decide if it will allow the salewhich is a prudent move on the leagues part The sale process and valuation parameters of the first franchise will be a defining benchmark for any leagueand the IPL governing council ought to use this opportunity to create a system and strengthen the base for team ownership This is the basic governing economic and ethical principle for premiums associated with the ownership of a franchise In a governance-focused domainthis will be a positive and proactive move by the IPL Doubts about the projections however may still remain until a decision is made and a franchise is sold Unfortunately for the BCCIthe IPL seems to be moving towards a classification of reality/ entertainment This could spell doom for the leagues long-term growth and viabilitybecause professional sports leagues are synonymous with competition and unscripted achievements The IPL has the worlds elite cricketers competing in a professional leagueand the matches are not meant for mere entertainment ratherthe league is expected to create die-hard fan bases mirroring team loyalty for the clubs such as Team India enjoys Only when the IPL becomes a constant rather than a fadwill increasing gate revenues and merchandise sales become an annual trend For the first few seasonsit seemed as if things were well on track However this is no longer preordainedgiven the flattening out of the interest in cricketmanagement changes within the leaguea less robust economyincrease in accountability and governance scrutinyand a pessimistic outlook for some promoters Alsothere is legitimate competition from other sports No longer is the IPL merely a club of the elite and the privileged now is the time when it needs to start justifying the exorbitant valuations and costs associated with each and

Published: July 7 2017 10:56 am Spider-Man: Homecoming movie review: Peter Parker aka Spider-Man (Tom Holland) tries “helping” whomsoever he can Related News Spider-Man: Homecoming director: Jon Watts Spider-Man: Homecoming cast: Tom Holland Robert Downey Jr Michael Keaton Marisa Tomei Jon Favreau Zendaya Jacob Batalon Laura Harrier Spider-Man: Homecoming rating: 4 stars He has been saving the world alright but never before has the world seemed so much a part of Spider-Man’s life In his immediate radius are mixed-race couples a Filipino a Korean a Guatemalan a Tony Stark in sherwani at an Indian wedding and a villain whose concern isn’t superpowers but cutting corners A sixth Spider-Man in 15 years is excessive and director Watts knows that It has taken six credits for screenplay (including Watts) and two for ‘screen story’ for this film to fructify but for all that it treads with a supremely light touch And that it does while smartly acknowledging the hallowed ground it is covering In another smart move aside from updating Spider-Man to a multi-racial New York the film places Avengers right at the centre of it It is but natural that they would be famous by now and popular and that someone would have made motivational videos where they tell schoolchildren to exercise (that’s Captain America in a series of hilarious videos) It’s also natural that a 15-year-old who suddenly discovers his superpowers would be dying to exhibit them particularly as down the school hall stands a gorgeous girl he wants to ask out However Tony Stark (Downey Jr) doesn’t think he is ready yet despite the blockbuster ending of Captain America: Civil War where he first made his appearance And so Peter Parker aka Spider-Man (Holland) must wait by his phone constantly for “the next mission” from Stark He calls and calls Happy Hogan (an amused Favreau) Stark’s Man Friday and is mostly cut short So what is a 15-year-old to do He tries “helping” whomsoever he can — including zapping a man trying to get into his own car There is nothing funnier though than him helping an old woman find her way home He goes to a specialised science and tech school and so Peter isn’t really having a hard time like in other Spider-Mans That’s again a clever modification with it being natural that Peter’s talents would be recognised early on with a seat at such a school Frank Thompson (Tony Revolori who was so so good in The Grand Budapest Hotel) is a science quizzer here too rather than a jock and Peter usually beats him to the buzzer in competition rounds Keaton whose Vulture is so much an allusion to his Birdman/Batman roles that it is the one inside joke that is too much clever in the film puts in a delightful performance as the villain with the most mundane issues He does give a Trump-esque speech about the wealthy elite (read Stark) getting away with things the small people like him who run their factories drive their cars water their gardens have to pay for It comes out of nowhere and goes nowhere But never mind you feel for the guy who struggles to control his crew who clearly are in over their heads When they go out to make deals on weapons that Keaton has got his scientist to fashion from “alien junk” which they stole from the last Avengers encounter there is no telling how it will end One very effective scene has traffic lights playing across Keaton’s leathery face as a realisation about how his life is about to change flashes across his face Spider-Man thinner and leaner and younger than when both Tobey Maguire and Andrew Garfield played him stumbles upon Vulture while trying to “scare” his bumbling goons Stumbles is the right word for like in another of those clever discoveries we find out what would happen to Spider-Man should he be called to the rescue in a suburb In the absence of tall buildings his web would fall to the ground with nothing to latch on to The highly modified suit coming out of the Stark factory doesn’t help either In delivering so many instructions and so many choices including on what kind of web he wants — delivered by a Siri-like voice – the suit leaves Peter in a position not unlike what we find ourselves in daily So is there just too much tech going on here swamping out the awkward-kid-trying-to-fit-in that Spider-Man has always been It could have been but Holland’s Spider-Man is just too smart confident and funny for that to happen He doesn’t hang as well upside down waiting for a kiss from the girl of his dreams but one suspects he doesn’t need to Yes Zendaya we see you Still what does all the tech amount to Particularly as the most tiresome scenes involve clashes with clunky machines which remain a blur in their lack of clarity Even the Stark Industries’ impressive ‘invisible’ plane is lost in the mish-mash happening between Spider-Man and Vulture below For all the tinkering Vulture’s scientist does too all he delivers are big guns with shiny insides which are dismissed as vague “energy source” One of them almost fells the Washington Monument so we fathom it is a big “energy source” with just too many lying around for the film to take lightly Not that the science of Spider-Man is what drives the commerce of Spider-Man but lesser films than this have put in more effort into making these inevitable showdowns memorable So what really drives Spider-Man It is that he remains a boy in the world of men an orphan at that who cares for his aunt (Tomei suitably ditsy and sharp) and a guy who pines for a girl Holland is that so far The question is can he remain so in the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s ever-bloating empire If this film is an indication he just might even though an older Holland seems an incongruity For all the latest Entertainment News download Indian
