You must all have either a crystal clear or a vague memory of the first time Indian Premier League went live in 2008 and the words ‘Tu laga Daav’ echoed in our ears all day long ! There was a fresh wave of energy for all the cricket fans and even the ones who did not have the patience to sit through 50 overs or test matches, have been seen glued to televisions during the IPL season ever since. It has gone through controversies, stories of match fixing with Rajasthan Royals & Chennai Super Kings expelled till 2017, but has proudly completed 10 years with 8 teams playing right now in April 2017 🙂
