League and bounds in sport is healthy or not

"League and bounds in sport is healthy or not"

The Indian Premier League (also known as the "DLF Indian Premier League"), is a Twenty20 cricket competition created by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). It is a brain child of Lalit modi. The first season of the Indian Premier League commenced on 18 April 2008, and ended on 1 June 2008 with the victory of the Rajasthan Royals in the final. Here cricketer from different country groups together and formed team. Every team is purchased by celebrities. In short IPL is nothing but a different way of entertaining people and earning money for owner as well as players. It is very successful formula to grab attention of viewer. 

Now, you can watch Premier Hockey League (PHL), Hockey India League (HIL), and Indian wrestling League (IWL).

These are the some IPL format league which will come soon. Here are the some glimpses about Hockey India league. 
After the IPL, this will certainly be the most popular league in the country, if early indications are anything to go by. The league, modeled on the lines of the IPL, kicks off on Jan 14.
Five teams — UP Wizards Ranchi Rhinos, Punjab Warriors, and Mumbai Magicians & Delhi Wave Riders— will take part in the month-long league. Each franchise has been bought for R13cr, out of which R3.5cr is the cap for forming a 24-member team, including 10 foreign players, through auction.
India captain, Sardar Singh, has been bought for Rs.38.5. crore through a ‘silent bid’. He thus becomes the highest-contracted player among Indians. The minimum base price for domestic player was $2800. For foreign players it was $5000.This is the first franchise based hockey league having the sanction of the world body, FIH.
     The HIL has got a special window in the international calendar, while leagues in Europe don’t have this luxury. A window means no international tournament will be held during the period of the tournament.    

Here are the things that it will affect the current essence of sport. When IPL was organized on first time it was craze among audience to see match of 20 over’s, cheer leaders, Bollywood celebrity but after some year people become bored seeing such kind of thing. Today IPL is seeing as unprofessional cricket with lots of controversy. Hockey is the national game of India. In this if hockey will become the sport like IPL format then the essence of the sport really affect. But on the other side it will help to create an interest among audience. Hockey is not so much famous like cricket and the players are also not getting recognition like cricket. So in this case the HIL can become the great hit among sport lover. But in short such kinds of manipulation in game reduce the professionalism. The pride of winning medals for country will flood in vain.
