In 2008, The Board of Control for Cricket in India initiated the Indian Premier League – a billion dollar professional league for Twenty20 cricket competition in India.

After the finals of the DLF IPL (fifth season) played at M. A. Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai, on 27 May, 2012, the Kolkata Knight Riders went home richer by $2 million in prize money and the Chennai Super Kings received $1.5 million as the runners-up.

In November 2012 PepsiCo, one of the two eligible bidders for the coveted title of the sixth IPL season, won over Airtel with a bid of ₹396.8 crore for the league to be called the “Pepsi IPL” for the next five years.

Pepsi IPL (IPL 2013; IPL 6) Teams

Last season nine teams participated in this popular Cricket carnival. This season too, the number of teams participating remains the same; however, on September 14, 2012, at an emergency Governing Council meeting of the Indian Premier League, the BCCI terminated its contract with the cash-strapped Deccan Chargers and floated tenders for a new IPL franchise. Sun TV Network purchased the team by placing a bid substantially higher than that of PVP Ventures, and changed the name of the team to SunRisers Hyderabad.
