The Indian Cricket League (ICL) is a private cricket league that runs parallel to the existing cricket league managed by the BCCI. It is promoted by Zee Telefilms (part of Subash Chandra's Essel group), and was set up with a Rs. 100 crore (Rs. 1 billion) corpus. The inaugural season of the ICL was in November 2007. Since then, it has organised three tournaments and this is the fourth one. The Essel Group is also planning to set up cricket academies all over the country.
