The Incredible Story of the Indian Premier League
By - Desh Gaurav Sekhri
About the Book :
Chronicling the Indian Premier League (IPL), India s first sports league and the most controversial ever, this book explores the intricacies of the business and the acceptability of the IPL to take a closer look at the various scams that have plagued it. It is a blow-by-blow description of the highs, lows, and future of the IPL that has, possibly, redefined the way the rest of the world perceives India. It analyses what the league got right and what it has got wrong and why. And, what the IPL and its owner/promoter the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI ) could have done to sell the sport and build on the popularity of cricket in India, but didn t. Analysing the spotfixing scandal, the conflict of interest controversy, the specific issues concerning the teams, the complicated interplay between the BCCI and the IPL, this thought-provoking work brings to light many untold stories of cricket in India.
