IPL Success in South Africa

After five weeks of non-stop Indian Premier League Twenty 20 action here in South Africa the season ended today when the Deccan Chargers defeated the Royal Challengers in the final at the Bull Ring or Wanderers in Johannesburg today. After the match was concluded the closing ceremony was quite spectacular with acts like Akon and Eddie Grant followed by one of the largest fireworks displays I have ever seen in this country.

Thank you very much for the season and I can assure you all South Africans hope next year the IPL will come back to the safety and hospitality of of this country. Not only was it spectacular entertainment, but more than R1 Billion was injected into our economy.
