Pune: The Indian Premier League (IPL) is going to leave behind a void that will be hard to fill, BCCI President and Union Agriculture Minister Sharad Pawar remarked yesterday.

He also said that the runaway success of the IPL has aroused the interest of some Harvard academicians, who wish to exlore the reason behind this phenomenon.

''I have been receiving SMS's from all over the country and people are asking me about how to spent their evenings after IPL matches are over, as watching these matches have become a part of their routine,'' He said this while addressing a function, adding that he had been contacted by some academics from Harvard too, who were eager to study about what made the IPL such success.

''The Harvard academicians are here to study and analyse the reason, which made IPL matches a favourite among people,'' Mr Pawar said.
