Why TV broadcasters and sponsors hate spin bowlers in the IPL?

Naah, it’s got nothing to do with the fact that most of them have been exploiting the slow tracks to stifle batsmen; thereby denying them the opportunity to hit sixes and commentators the chance to shout “DLF Maximums”.

It’s simply because spinners prevent broadcasters from plugging TV ads between two successive deliveries ( atleast most of the time). Thanks to their super short run-ups, the most ingenious of ad-makers cannot create ads which are short enough to be displayed between two consecutive deliveries from a spin bowler.

Having saved viewers from the torture of watching advertisements between consecutive deliveries, the spinning saviours are surely worthy of a lot of good cheer from the TV audience.
