The Twenty20 league is set to debut in April 2008, with eight teams comprising a minimum of 16 players each. The IPL works on a franchise-system of hiring players and transfers. These franchises were put for auction, where the highest bidder won the rights to own the team, representing each city.

The DLF Indian Premier League (IPL) 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.

Instead, the round-robin stage of the tournament was to have been replaced by a group stage with two groups of five, limiting the number of matches to 74.
