Chennai: May 29, 2011

Indian Premier League Chairman Chirayu Amin has said that he is happy and relieved that the T20 tournament went off well this season despite the increased number of games than earlier editions due to the inclusion of two more teams.

“I am happy and relieved with the way the season went,” Amin said after the summit clash which saw Chennai Super Kings beat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 58 runs to claim the IPL 4 title.

“This year was different. Two more teams were added and so more games were played. But it went off well and I think it will set the pace for the future editions,” he added.

Pune Warriors and Kochi Tuskers Kerala were added to the eight teams which played in the last three editions.

This year, 10 teams played 74 games over 50 days.
