    The IPL extravaganza had transformed the world of cricket and captured the imaginations of cricket lovers like never before. Yet, after a mere three years, the innovation that had seemed to herald a new dawn in sport has degenerated into a series of accusations and counter-accusations, allegations of corruption, and never-ending controversies. What went wrong? And is it at all possible for the IPL to survive this debacle?

    The IPL Story documents how one journalist, Abhishek Dubey from IBN7, tracked the controversy from the very beginning. He uses interviews, the results of investigative research, intriguing background information on key players, and sneak peeks into the workings of sports journalism to provide an exciting account of one of cricket's historic moments. Thoughtful quotes by stalwarts in journalism and the cricketing fraternity add insight and useful pointers towards the direction cricket, and the IPL in particular, is likely to take in the years to come.
