Indian Premier League is the biggest cricket league tournament in the world. It helped underdogs to rise and shine, but on other hand it also created a huge profitable market in India. A question always comes in our mind that "How Franchisee Earn Money ?". The Franchisee earn most of their money by sponsors and not by the prize money of IPL. They are fully dependent on sponsors, ads, TV broadcasting rights etc. The players of the team cannot refuse to shoot an ad for the Franchise during IPL and thier jerseys are full of sponsors logos. The players don't get fees for ad shoot during IPL, the fees directly goes to Franchise as the players are under the franchise during IPL seasons.
