Ahile the 2ustice $ukul $udgal report on betting and fi9ing has cast a long
shadow o%er the Indian Premier League (IPL)" some of biggest names in

Though the $udgal !ommittee report" made public $onday" is basically a
preliminary finding" it ne%ertheless casts aspersions that cannot be wished
away. That" howe%er" does not preclude some 7+3 players getting into the
ring for the multi0crore bidding process that will shape the eight IPL teams.

for the young and talented rather those in the twilight of their careers.
1mong the most talked about players is 260year0old @ew ?ealand all0
rounder !orey 1nderson whose recent e9ploits" notably a world record 6:0
ball C;I century against the Aest Indies" ha%e pro(ected him as a Phot
buyQ. !hances are that he might end up becoming a millionaire in the ne9t
23 hours.
Aith IPL completing fi%e seasons" the eight teams were allowed to retain a
ma9imum of fi%e players" something that only !hennai )uper =ings"
$umbai Indians and 'a(asthan 'oyals opted for while ;elhi ;arede%ils
preferred to release its entire s#uad.
'oyal !hallengers angalore preferred to retain three as against two each
by =ings KI Pun(ab" =olkata =night 'iders and )unrisers <yderabad.

)eason 5 of Indian Premier League (IPL 20+3) offer a total priEe money of
's. 300 million. The winning team of IPL gets a priEe money of 's.
+70 million.
!hampionsF +70 million
'unner0upF +00 million
Third placeF 57 million
Dourth placeF 57 million
@o priEe money for remaining teams
It must be noted that IPL rules mandate that half of the priEe money must
be distributed among the players.
India*s biggest property de%eloper ;LD Broup paid 2.70 billion (around
-).70 million) to be the title sponsor of the tournament for 7 years from
2004 to 20+2.
Drom 20+6 season" the 1merican food and be%erage
company Pepsi!o took o%er title sponsorship for fi%e years %alued
at 6/:4 million" and also e9clusi%e be%erage supplier for the IPL teams in
the 20+6 season.
The IPL is e9pected to bring the !!I an income of appro9imately -).+.:
billion" o%er a period of fi%e to ten years. 1ll of these re%enues are directed
to a central pool" 30T of which will go to IPL itself" 73T to franchises and
:T as priEe money. The money will be distributed in these proportions until
20+5" after which the share of IPL will be 70T" franchises 37T and priEe
money 7T. The IPL signed up =ingfisher 1irlines as the official umpire
partner for the series in a +.0: billion(-).+4 million) (appro9imately U+7
million) deal. This deal sees the $c;owells @o.+ brand on all umpires*
uniforms and also on the giant screens during third umpire decisions.

Cther sponsorships include" a deal with <ero <onda worth .22.7 million"
with Pepsi!o worth .+2.7 million" and a deal with=ingfisher at .2:.7
Cn +5 2anuary 2004 it was announced that a consortium consisting of
India*s )ony >ntertainment Tele%ision()et $a9)network and )ingapore0
based Aorld )port Broup secured the global broadcasting rights of the
Indian Premier League.
The record deal has a duration of ten years at a
cost of -).+.02: billion. 1s part of the deal" the consortium will pay the
!!I -)./+4 million for the tele%ision broadcast rights and -).+04 million
for the promotion of the tournament. This deal was challenged in the
ombay <igh !ourt by IPL" and got the ruling on its side.
1fter losing the battle in court" )ony >ntertainment Tele%ision signed a new
contract with !!I with )ony >ntertainment Tele%ision paying 45
billion (-).+.3 billion) for +0 years. Cne of the reasons for payment of this
huge amount is seen as the money re#uired to subsidise IPL*s mo%e to
)outh 1frica which will be substantially more than the pre%ious IPL. IPL had
agreed to subsidise the difference in operating cost between India and
)outh 1frica as it decided to mo%e to the 1frican nation after the security
concerns raised because of its coincidence with India*s general elections.
20T of these proceeds would go to IPL" 4T as priEe money and 52T
would be distributed to the franchisees. The money would be distributed in
these proportions until 20+2" after which the IPL would go public and list its
shares (ut in $arch 20+0" IPL decided not to go public).
)ony0A)B then re0sold parts of the broadcasting rights geographically to
other companies. It is officially broadcast on )et $a9" )et )i9 and in
internet on Times internet.
Cn 3 $arch 20+0 IT& announced it had secured the -nited =ingdom
tele%ision rights for the 20+0 Indian Premier League. IT& will tele%ise 7/ of
the :0 IPL matches on its IT&3 free to air channel.
