Vivo IPL is garnering steady viewership as is evident from its third week BARC ratings. The match between Mumbai Indians and Kolkata Knight Riders on April 28 recorded the highest ratings of 21,375 impressions across all across IPL’s official broadcasters, including Sony Max, Sony Six (SD+HD) and Sony ESPN (SD+HD).

It has to be pointed out that only Sony Max saw the above match garnering the highest viewership of 16,045 impressions, while Sony Six saw the match between the new entrants Rising Pune Supergiants and Gujarat Lions on April 29 gathering highest ratings of 3,933 impressions.
