We can also draw some conclusions about the nature of the County Championship compared to the IPL from this video.
In the Championship, the crucial action typically takes place behind the batsman, whereas in the IPL it is more common to see significant moments occur in front of him.
The IPL also has more cameras.
Other than that, everything’s exactly the same.
Exactly the same.
