The original concept for the Indian Premier League was devised by Lalit Modi in 2007 as a reaction to the formation of the Indian Cricket League by Zee Entertainment Enterprises. Backed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Modi based the new venture on the English Premier League and the NBA.
Boasting a round-robin structure that climaxes with a knockout finale, the inaugural IPL saw eight franchises created, with investors taking part in an auction to purchase a place in the league. With a total sale price of $723 million, the eight franchises were assigned host cities across India and the IPL was born.
