I am happy that IPL went off well: Amin

Chennai: Indian Premier League Chairman Chirayu Amin was on Saturday a relieved man that the Twenty20 tournament had gone 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 defeat Royal Challengers Bangalore by 58 runs.

"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 said.

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

This year, the 10 teams played 74 games, including Saturday's summit clash, in 50 days starting April 8.
