IPL – Indian Premier League

Indian Premier League (IPL) is professional Twenty20 cricket league created and promoted by BCCI. Launched in April 2008, IPL started with eight teams, each with 16 players. The IPL works on a franchise-system based on the American style of hiring players and transfers. These franchises were put for auction, where the highest bidder won the rights to own the team, representing each city.
