Why RJ Balaji is not commentating in TATA IPL 2023?
In recent times, RJ Balaji has expanded his horizons by joining Star Sports and Disney+ Hotstar as an IPL commentator, adding humor and liveliness to Tamil commentary.
In the 2023 Tata IPL, Jio Cinema secured digital streaming rights for the next five years with an investment of Rs. 23,000 crore. They aimed to surpass satellite streaming viewership and establish a monopoly by leveraging their expertise.
As a result, some commentators have transitioned to Jio Cinema’s IPL streaming, while others have remained with Star Sports for satellite commentary. RJ Balaji continues to provide commentary for the remaining IPL matches on Star Sports satellite channels, allowing viewers to enjoy his entertaining commentary on the Star Sports live TV network.
