The Indian Premier League (IPL) is one of the most extravagant and certainly the richest T20 leagues in the world.

This competition has also given rise to a few T20 leagues in some states of India. Tamil Nadu Premier League, Karnataka Premier League, Mumbai T20 League and Saurashtra Premier League have been successfully launched.


IPL History and Format


The Indian Premier League was initiated in the year 2008 by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The inaugural edition saw 8 teams playing a double round robin league stage followed by the semi-finals and final.


The only change in the format is that the top four teams in the IPL 2021 points table play the ‘Playoffs’ that have replaced the traditional ‘semi-final and final’ knockouts. The IPL score is available when the match goes on everyday.


IPL 2021 Teams, Owners & Sponsors

IPL Live Score


The 14th edition of the IPL will be conducted in the months of April and May, 2021 in India. As of now, five IPL venues have been shortlisted for conducting the entire tournament. While IPL 2021 will begin behind closed doors, the question remains whether the rest of the tournament will have fans inside the stadium or not.

IPL 2021 Budget and Expected Revenue


The IPL brand value is consistently on a rise every season. In 2016, the IPL was valued at $ 4.16 billion (approx INR 282 billion). It increased to $ 5.3 billion (approx INR 341 billion) in 2017, to $ 6.13 billion (approx INR 429 billion) in 2018 and $ 6.7 billion (approx INR 475 billion) in 2019.


The increase in brand value was 27.4% in 2017, 15.66% in 2018 and 9.3% in 2019. These statistics suggest that there will be an increase in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic decreased the tournament’s brand value by 22% to $ 4.4 billion (approx 320 billion).


With the increase in people interested in IPL live match and IPL score, the brand value is expected to bounce back to its original value.


IPL 2021 Merchandise


A lot of online stores like Amazon, Snapdeal and Flipkart among others sell unofficial jerseys of IPL franchises from INR 149 to INR 2,199. The Souled Store sells official merchandise of the Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders and Punjab Kings.

What’s new in IPL 2021?


  1. Empty Indian Stadiums
  2. The world’s largest cricket stadium


IPL 2021 will be the first-ever edition of the IPL that will be played in India with no crowds inside the stadiums (at least for the initial part of the tournament). IPL 2020 was entirely played behind closed doors but the tournament was conducted in the UAE. As a result, the 14th edition will be unique in its own course.


The newly-constructed Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad, which has now eclipsed the Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia as the world’s largest cricket stadium. It will host the IPL 2021 knockout games. This will be the first time that the cash-rich league will be played at what was known as the Motera stadium.
