Talking about the launch of one of the biggest Nat Geo properties of the year, Keertan Adyanthaya, MD, National Geographic and Fox International Channels, said, “The ‘Inside’ franchise on NGC stands for two things – unparalleled access that takes the viewer where he has never gone before, and a 360-degree view. And Inside IPL is a great testimony to both these points. Fans of this game would get to know a lot more under this comprehensive compilation. Inside IPL is a one- stop show that brings together the talent, the sound business acumen, the brands, and even the machinery that goes into making of this extravagant event.”

Sanjay Patel, BCCI Secretary, said, “The IPL is a labour of love, and the outcome of a tremendous amount of hard work and teamwork. We are pleased that Nat Geo has decided to tell the 'inside story' of this tournament. 'Inside IPL’ will definitely provide a 360 degree perspective on this very unique cricket league.”

In its inimitable style of taking audiences where they have never been before, Nat Geo ‘Inside’ constantly strives to bring to the viewer, some of the world’s most restricted places and iconic events. And with ‘Inside IPL’, classic documentary filming that brings out the glamour and gloss, merges seamlessly with a much more personal observational style, taking audiences into the heart of this two month long tournament, for the first time on television.
