IPL History | How IPL Started | IPL Latest News and Updates

IPL history is very interesting and full of excitement and starting it was not a necessity but a compulsion. Let us know how it became so famous overnight.

How IPL Started?

T20 cricket started in 2002 and its first World Cup took place in 2007.
The first match of T-20 was held in 2002, it was becoming famous all over the world but it was not getting any special popularity in India.
As soon as the World Cup was announced in 2007, Subhash Chandra, who had been trying for the media and broadcasting rights of cricket since 2002, was repeatedly rejected saying that he had no experience in sports broadcasting. He also applied for media rights in 2002, 2004 and 2005 but like every time he did not get media rights.
When the world cup was announced in 2007, 6 months before that, they decided to start T-20 League of players. Which was named Indian Champion League.
The concept of cricket leagues like IPL and ICL had come to a standstill in 1977 as well. In 1977, an Australian broadcasting company owned by Carrie Packer, he applied for Matches Media and Broadcasting rights from Australia Cricket Board and like Subhash Chandra, he was treated in the same way in 1977 that you do not have experience and he Accuse the time board that they are all mixed and do not give opportunity to anyone new.
But where was Kerry Packers going to remain silent, he secretly made an agreement with the big players of Australia, England and West Indies for his league. He offered 3 times more money than what a player used to get at that time and convinced everyone to join him in this series. They had already got sponsors and the grounds had also been found for this event. Kerry Packer did all this very quietly, no one was aware of anything.
When this tournament was announced, the Australia Cricket Board somehow intimidated all its players and took them out of that tournament and in this way England also succeeded, but the players of West Indies supported Kerry Packer and this The league was very successful. The Australia Cricket Board and the England Cricket Board were able to stop that league and their players who had returned at the behest of the board were also ready to play in what was called World Series Cricket for the next season.
Then Kerry Packer thought that once again he should talk to the Australia Board to give him media and broadcasting rights and this time the board agreed to give media rights to Kerry Packer on the condition of closing the World Series Cricket League because he had There was no other choice left.

But Subhash Chandra’s experience was opposite to that of Kerry Packer. His main reason was to announce without preparation, while Kerry Packer did everything by hiding and announced after everything was ready, while Subhash Chandra had no preparation, just a concept. The BCCI flopped the ICL by using all its sources and methods so that the incident of 1977 did not happen again. ICL was not getting famous players and stadium which could collect good crowd of public. BCCI had increased the salary of its players and national players had also started getting good money. BCCI along with ICC got mandatory to take permission from National Board before starting any private league. Without that permission no league will be considered legal. Against this decision, Subhash Chandra went to court and won the case too, but by then his players and sponsors had left him.
BCCI did not take this act of Subhash Chandra lightly and started IPL on 23 September 2007 by calling Lalit Modi.
No one had thought that IPL would become such a famous and profitable brand in such a short span of time.
With the start of IPL, cricket has got a huge advantage, cricket has now become world famous, players have started getting good money, new stadiums have started to be built and the talent who did not get chance in small villages, now He gets so much money in one season that his life gets relaxed. Because of such tournaments, India and all the countries of the world are getting so much talent that every country is running its own 2 to 3 cricket teams. Kerry Packer and Subhash Chandra did not benefit from this fight as much as the BCCI, ICC and cricket benefited.
