So later this year England launches its inaugural short form Cricket tournament which will feature global stars of the game and replicate the success of The Big Bash in Australia and especially the Indian Premier League.
The Indian Premier League or the IPL is now on its 13th year and it’s still one of the biggest cricket tournaments worldwide. The IPL started in 2008 after being established by the Board of Control for Cricket in India on September 13, 2007. It has an exclusive window in the ICC Future Tours Programme.
The Indian Cricket Premier League, or IPL for short, is a showcase for the world’s greatest talent of the sport. 2019 marked the 12th season for this wildly popular league and it did not disappoint. Throughout the season there were surprises and some truly spectacular performances to remember. At the end of it all, in a climactic final that had fans on the edge of their seats, Mumbai Indians defeated Chennai Super Kings by a single run to become champions for the fourth time.
