On 13 September 2007, on the back of India’s victory at the 2007 T20 World Cup, BCCI announced a franchise-based Twenty20 cricket competition called Indian Premier League. The first season was slated to start in April 2008, in a “high-profile ceremony” in New Delhi. BCCI vice-president Lalit Modi, who spearheaded the IPL effort, spelled out the details of the tournament including its format, the prize money, franchise revenue system and squad composition rules.

It was also revealed that the IPL would be run by a seven-man governing council composed of former India players and BCCI officials and that the top two teams of the IPL would qualify for that year’s Champions League Twenty20. Modi also clarified that they had been working on the idea for two years and that the IPL was not started as a “knee-jerk reaction” to the ICL. The league’s format was similar to that of the Premier League of England and the NBA in the United States.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a Twenty-20 cricket tournament league established with the objective of promoting cricket in India and thereby nurturing young and talented players. The league is an annual event where teams representing different Indian cities compete against each other.
