IPL 7 is a short form for the 2014 version of the Indian Premier League, also called Pepsi IPL 2014, in view of sponsorship reasons, will be the seventh season of the IPL. The Mumbai Indians, winners of the 2013 event after beating Chennai Super Kings in the Final, will be the defending champions. This edition will be played by eight teams, one team short of the 2013 championship, as a result of the withdrawal of the Pune Warriors India.
It has been contemplated that this season might be held out of India so as to mitigate the hardship of extra load to the security arrangements to be made for the 2014 Lok Sabha Elections, in case its dates overlap with the tournament dates. However, the schedule will be determined after the fixation of the dates for the elections.
The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a Twenty20 cricket tournament league in India, having its headquarters in Mumbai, Maharashtra.
The Premier League is construed as the world’s most venerated championship of Twenty20 (T20) cricket, the shortest form of professional cricket with just 20 over per innings. The IPL was commenced in 2008.
The England and Wales cricket board was the pioneer of Twenty20 cricket at a competitive level way back in 2003. Nevertheless, IPL has been given credit as the body that has placed this version of the sport on the cricket world map. The Indian Premier League envisaged and launched by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has been tremendously successful.
This, being a yearly event, contested every year in the months of April and May, has grown by leaps and bounds from the inauguration and is considered the 'richest' championship in the cricket world. But, ironically, the IPL is more famous for its commercial success than the Cricket offered by it. The brand value of the 2013 edition was approximately calculated to be US$2.99 billion.
There are the eight franchises that sponsor teams for the IPL:
Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Delhi Daredevils (DD), Kings XI Punjab (KXIP), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Mumbai Indians (MI), Rajasthan Royals (RR), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Sun risers Hyderabad (SRH).
The three teams, mentioned below, though played earlier in the IPL, are not in the race anymore because of financial constraints:
Pune Warriors India (PWI), Kochi Tuskers Kerala (KTK), and Deccan Chargers (DC).
The debut season of the IPL got underway on April 18 2008. Each of the participating teams played each other both at home and away in a round-robin system. The best performing four teams proceeded to the knockout stage of semi-finals followed by a final. The tournament spanned over a period of 43 days. Of the 59 matches programmed, only 58 could be contested as one was cancelled due to rain. The final match was contested by Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings in DY Patil Stadium, Nerul, and Navi Mumbai. Rajasthan Royals beat Chennai Super Kings in a thriller and became the inaugural IPL champions.
The 2009 Indian Premier League season, condensed as IPL 2 or the 2009 IPL, was the second version of the Indian Premier League. South Africa hosted the tournament, which was played from April 18 to May 24 2009. IPL 2 was the second largest cricket tournament in the world, after the Cricket World Cup and had an approximate television audience of more than 200 million in India alone. Deccan Chargers defeated Bangalore Royal Challengers in a thrilling final to win the 2009 IPL championship.
The 2010 IPL, the third edition, commenced in January 2010 with the auction of players. Out of the 66 players available, only 11 players were acquired in the auction. In this season, because of the critical political situation, Deccan Chargers did not contest at their favoured home location, Hyderabad, India. The new venues for the defending champions for this season were Nagpur, Navi Mumbai and Cuttack. The first semi-final was won by Mumbai Indians who beat Bangalore Royal Challengers. Chennai Super Kings won over Deccan Chargers in the second semi-final. The final was contested by Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings. Chennai Super Kings became champions by winning the final with a margin of 22 runs.
IPL 2010 witnessed the inclusion of two more teams, Sahara Pune warriors India and the Kochi Tuskers, raising the number of franchises from eight to 10. In IPL 2010, the franchises of Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab were terminated for violating ownership rules. After a lapse of two months, both teams were finally permitted to take part in the 2011 edition consequent to a court ruling. The new Kochi franchisee was also handed out a warning to resolve all their ownership differences.
Chennai Super Kings won their second title in a row after beating the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 58 runs in the final of IPL 4 or IPL 2011. This happened to be the first time that a franchisee won two titles and in a row.
The 2012 Indian Premier League V championship (IPL 5 or the IPL 2012), was rebranded as DLF IPL 2012, because of the sponsorship. With the termination of Kochi Tuskers Kerala, the number of teams participated in the league plunged to nine, from ten. The tournament commenced on April 4 and ended on May 27 2012.
Kolkata Knight Riders took home the IPL title for the first time; winning over two times defending champions Chennai Super Kings by five wickets in the final.
IPL 6 or IPL 2013, an acronym for Pepsi Indian Premier League 2013 was the sixth version of the Indian Premier League. The tourney spreading over a little more than seven weeks began on April 3 and concluded on May 26 2013. The Kolkata Knight Riders were the reigning champions, having won the 2012 season. A spot fixing case was exposed by the Delhi Police, leading to arrest of three cricketers from Rajasthan Royals and other people. Mumbai Indians won the tournament for the first time, beating Chennai Super Kings in the final by 23 runs.
