Cricket has always been like a religion for this country. It is seen as more than just a game. The players are considered as demigods and literally worshipped. The Twenty20 format of cricket created history. After the Twenty20 format of cricket was introduced to the world, cricket has just been overflowing out of everyone's ears, its all about cricket.
Indian Premier League's origin is quite interesting. It all started when
Lalit Modi, the Vice President of the Board of Cricket Control in India
(BCCI) envisioned the Indian Premier League. It is created along the
lines of club football in Europe, specifically the English Premier
League. IPL has been launched in response to the rebel Indian Cricket
League (ICL) launched by Zee Group.
The DLF Indian Premier League is an amazing occurrence in whole of
cricket history. The Indian Cricket Board approved it a few months back.
It is seen as a very good opportunity as far as the entertainment
industry is concerned. The format of Twenty20 cricket has emerged as a
phenomenon after the Twenty20 World Cup was won by India and since then
people have been totally immersed into it. There is no doubt where the
Indian Premier League is headed, as far as viewership and profits for
everyone associated with it is concerned.
