Extraaa Innings T20
Extraaa Innings T20 (also popularly called 'Extra Innings') was a cricket based show telecast in between match sessions during the Indian Premier League (IPL) that covered match analysis and expert opinions from commentators, retired players and other experts in the sport. In any typical match, the show took place with a pre-match analysis, discussion during the match break and post match analysis. The show was hosted by television personalities along with ex-cricket players in Mumbai's RK Studio. The hosts took turns to traverse between the studio and stadiums during random match days which made it easier for them to have interactions and interviews with players during the course of the match. Drummers, dancers and cheerleaders were an integral part of the show. This, along with the stadiums almost always having a full house attendance with a carnival-like atmosphere had given the tournament a high television viewership since its inception in 2008. All these factors have made the IPL the most expensive sporting league in India. It broadcast its last episode on 21 May 2017 during 2017 IPL final. It was replaced by Star Sports Cricket Live after Star Sports bought the broadcasting rights.
