Why Low Scoring IPL Matches Last Long

IPL makes money via advertisements in the match.  If the match finishes in 10 overs instead of 20, it means loss of revenue. It seems like  no matter what, both "strategic timeouts" have to happen in any match. I am not aware of any match in which a team won before the "strategic timeout" irrespective of the required runs.

Sometimes I wonder if sports is a form of Reality TV.
