The IPL started in 2008 and immediately took domestic T20 to a new level.
Before the beginning of the IPL, there was a general feeling that T20 (at domestic level) was nothing more than a bit of jolly up.
It seemed to be a bit of light relief for the players, a chance to let their hair down, and throw the bat a bit without any real pressure. Or if a bowler, and you went round the park, so what, it was only a bit of fun.
The IPL changed all of this. For want of a better expression, it professionalised domestic T20. The money that was invested into the IPL has ensured that all of the world’s best cricketers are present every year.
The IPL soon developed into the premier domestic T20 event, and as such it is a cricket betting paradise.
The participation of all of the world’s best players and the intensity that the competition is played in, has seen the IPL become a premier betting event. Taking betting on cricket in India to a new level.
The first ever winners of the competition back in 2008 were the Rajasthan Royals, captained by Shane Warne, they defeated the Chennai Super Kings by 3 wickets at the DY Patil Sports Stadium.
