– Ticket sales for Mumbai and Pune are doing well, while ticket sales of Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab have picked up over the last two days.

– MSM (Multi Screen Media of Sony Max) is charging INR 5 lakh per 10 seconds, though they have sold only 50-60% of the ad inventory until now.

The correlation between on-ground ticket sales and TV viewership is interesting, though hard to explain why TV viewership is impacted by online ticket sales?
