The second season of Indian Premier League or IPL is all set to change the history. What kind of history? Can you believe it – the entertainment and excitement has become massive with the betting industry putting as much as 25,000 crore rupees in the matches.

Cricketers playing on the field will fight for just a very small part of it, Rs 15 crore only. There are 59 matches to be played and the stakes in each match will be about 420 crores. Big players including celebrities, industrialists, people from entertainment industry, etc., have really made it big.

The first season of IPL was played in India from April 18, 2008 to first June of the same year. Out of 59 matches, 58 were played and one was cancelled due to consistent rains on the scheduled day.
