India's tryst with Sri Lanka in the cricket world cup final is commanding record rates for television ad spots.
Official broadcaster ESPN Star Sports (ESS) is charging Rs 23-24 lakh for a 10-second slot from last-minute advertisers.
Broadcasters sell a part - usually up to 10 per cent - ad slots just before an event to cash in on any possible spike in demand.
