The Indian Premier League which is the most popular leagues in the World since 2008 has been of great use for Indian cricket. With the inception of T-20 cricket in 2005 there has been a change in the way young cricketers play their game. T-20 has made the batsman more fearless, play more innovatively leading to sieazable scores in fewer balls. The likes of Akshar Patel, Sanju Samson, Karun Nair and other young talents have impressed a lot lately. They were blessed with the exposure of playing with the greats like Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid the wall of Indian Cricket, VVS Laxaman and learnt about the game.

T-20 format especially the Indian Premier League has attracted a lot more people into the stadiums. The television viewer’s number has increased in leaps and bounce. People love to see the batsman hit sixes and fours. The pitches in T-20 are very batting friendly. The crowds come to watch and love to see exciting finishes with matches going to the last over and sometimes even the last ball.

T-20 format especially has been a way for the players to be considered into the national squads. Even if not picked up for the national team, many small town boys make a name for themselves by playing in the T-20 tournament making enough money from this format.

The IPL has also raised the standard of fielding in modern day cricket for India. They have wonderful fielders like Ravindra Jadjea, Suresh Raina, Virat Kohli, Ajiyanka Rahane, Rohit Sharma, and Manish Pandey.

IPL has helped the Indian batsmen to play innovative strokes and that has helped them to play freely and ability to chase down huge scores easily. It has created a change in mindset among the players

By playing with the international stars they know their strengths and weakness. The young Indian players playing in the IPL have learnt from the coaches and the learnt the basics of the game.

Due to IPL the game has reached small places like Ranchi, Dharmshala, Raipur. Mandatory inclusion of international players (4 out of 11 in each playing side) from New Zealand, Australia, West Indies, Sri Lanka and England is responsible for improving the challenge and quality of the matches, thereby providing international exposure at home for the upcoming domestic players.

This has helped the Indian cricket a lot in One day International cricket. The Indian batsmen have learnt the art of playing big strokes and because of that more and more youngsters want to join the IPL for experience of playing with international players. Suresh Raina, MS Dhoni, Rohit Sharma have been playing IPL since the start.
