It was initiated by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), headquartered in Mumbai,[3][4] and is supervised by BCCI Vice President Rajeev Shukla,[5]who serves as the league's Chairman and Commissioner. It is currently contested by nine teams, consisting of players from around the world. It was started after an altercation between the BCCI and the Indian Cricket League.[6] In 2010, IPL became the first sporting event ever to be broadcast live on YouTube in association with Indiatimes.[7] Its brand value is estimated to be around US$2.99 billion in fifth season.[8] However, the league has been engulfed by series of corruption scandals where allegations of cricket betting, money laundering and spot fixing were witnessed.[9][10] -------------------------------------------------
