Founded in 2008, the Indian Premier League (IPL) is the most popular domestic cricket league in the world. It was one of the first and most successful leagues in cricket to adopt a franchise model of T20 competition, and remains hugely popular in terms of IPL betting.
While eight teams compete in the IPL, it’s the huge names from sport and culture associated with the tournament that dominate. Stars of international cricket and T20 specialists like Virat Kohli, Shikhar Dhawan, Kane Williamson, Chris Gayle, Ben Stokes, Dwayne Bravo, AB de Villiers and M.S. Dhoni all ply their trade in the IPL.
Even greats of yesteryear like Shane Warne, Sachin Tendulkar and Kevin Pietersen made their mark in the IPL, with some staying on as mentors and coaches.
The Mumbai Indians are amongst the most glamorous of the franchises, and rightly so. With three IPL tiles, they have won more IPL tournaments than any other team. Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Kolkata Knight Riders all count themselves amongst a list of past champions.
Yet to win their first title, despite boasting stellar talents like Brendon McCullum, Chris Woakes and Tim Southee, Royal Challengers Bangalore were runners-up in 2016. Delhi Daredevils are the only other active team in the league yet to win the IPL championship, their closest result a playoff run back in 2012.
There’s even a sprinkling of IPL star dust over the league with Preity Zinta a part owner of Kings XI Punjab and Shah Rukh Khan and Juhi Chawla are joint owners of Kolkata Knight Riders.
It could be your first IPL betting experience or you could be a veteran of every previous season of the IPL. Either way, Betway Sports gives you a route to the action in the world’s favourite T20 cricket league.
