The Indian Premier League (IPL) started in 2008 as a competitive Twenty20 cricket league in India. Teams from major Indian cities compete in the tournament, which is built on a round-robin group and knockout format. The IPL, which was created by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), has grown to be the most lucrative and successful cricket league in the world. Matches usually start in the late afternoon or evening, with at least a part of them being played under floodlights at night to increase the viewing audience for international broadcasts. League matches were originally played on a home-and-away basis between both teams, but with the proposed extension to ten clubs (divided into two groups of five) in 2011, the arrangement was modified so that matches between certain teams would be reduced to a single match.
The top four teams compete in three play-off matches, with one losing team getting a second opportunity to advance to the final, a twist designed to increase future viewing sales. The four teams that finished at the top of the tables compete in a series of elimination games in the play-off part of the competition, which gives one team that lost its first-round game a second chance to progress to the final match.
Rules to be followed in IPL
The Indian Premier League (IPL) T20 Cricket was developed and marketed to provide audiences with entertainment. Many rules have been formulated for it solely with this goal in mind. Some of the IPL regulations have changed since the first season, although others have remained unchanged with the prospect of reform in the future.
In the case of IPL teams and their composition, the following rules apply:

- A squad should have no more than four international players among its playing 11 participants.
- Players with ‘classic status’ include Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, Yuvraj Singh, and Virender Sehwag.

Currently, as of 2017, the allocation structure is as follows: 54 per cent for franchisees, 40 per cent for the IPL, and the remaining 6% for prize money. After 2017, the percentages will be 45 per cent for franchisees, 50 per cent for the IPL, and 5% for prize money.
