Indian Premier League Umpires
The comprehensive list of Indian Premier League is not quite disclosed. However, as per the speculations that have been made, Simon Taufel may be amongst the candidates in the list of umpires for the Indian Premier League. In the recent past, with the several incidents of bad umpiring, the choice of umpires is going to be a well-contemplated decision that would be undertaken by the Indian Premier League.
Indian Premier League is a fresh initiative of BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket n India), that is more a reaction to the Essel Group venture, ICL (Indian Cricket League). The novel feature of the league is the auctioning of the players for their respective teams. As for now, there are about 8 teams which are going to increase in number as the tournament gains popularity. The much awaited tournament is based upon the mini-cricket format of Twenty20 that has gained fame more with India’s win in the 2007 Twenty20 World Cup.
This Twenty20 tournament has caught a lot of hype from both the glam and business worlds. Some of the big names associated with Indian Premier League are inclusive of Vijay Mallya, Shahrukh Khan, Anil Dhirubhai Ambani, Ness Wadia and Preity Zinta. Each of them has won the bid for a specific state team for which the auctioning of the players is yet to take place. Besides this, cricketers from both national and international front have been attracted towards this tournament, giving it a much required impetus.
