What is IPL?
IPL is also called as Indian Premier League, which is used to represent different teams from different states. It is not technically decided team members from that state, but the name is given. IPL was launched in the year 2007 by the decision of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
IPL is a cricket game that is played in the offseason so that the fans of cricket are entertained. IPL has many players from India as well as players from a different country and also some nation. There is something called slots in IPL where there is an empty place for players.
This means that the slots are the final position that a player can get to go in a team. Those players in the slot are confirmed, and they cannot be revoked or taken out of the team after they have been admitted. IPL was created at the request of the fans and also the cricketers in India. You can learn more on the site.
