What is the Indian Premier League?

The Indian Premier League is a men’s Twenty20 (T20) cricket league staged every year across India . As a franchise competition, teams can bid in an auction draft format for the world’s best T20 players to play for them.

The IPL, as it’s known for short, is now the most popular cricket league on the planet. Within six years of its launch, it was attracting the sixth-highest attendances across all professional sports leagues worldwide. It’s a truly explosive, high-octane competition, bringing together the world’s best bowlers and big-hitting batsmen between March and May each year.

History of the Indian Premier League

The Indian Premier League was founded in 2008. Inspired by India’s T20 World Cup victory in 2007, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) opted to launch a franchise-based T20 league in India to rival the Indian Cricket League (ICL), established 12 months earlier.

In January 2008, an auction of the eight IPL team franchises was hosted. The reserve price of all the franchises combined was $400 million, but the auction raised upwards of $723 million.

Its popularity has soared ever since. In the 2023 IPL final, it attracted 32 million viewers of its live streams. Furthermore, the media rights of the IPL for 2023-2027 were sold to Viacom18 and Star Sports for a staggering $6.4 billion.

Indian Premier League Schedule & Format

With ten franchise teams now involved in the IPL, there are two groups of five – Group A and Group B.

Each team plays twice against the four other teams in its group and once against the five teams in the other group. There is one extra game when a side must play its opposite number in the other group a second time (i.e., the team listed #1 in Group A will play the team listed #1 in Group B twice).

The top four teams face off in the playoffs, with the top two teams locking horns in Qualifier 1, with the winner automatically reaching the IPL final. The third and fourth-placed teams play in the Eliminator, with the winner then facing the losing team of Qualifier 1 in Qualifier 2, giving the loser of Qualifier 1 two bites at the cherry to reach the final.
