Cricket and Bollywood have equal importance in India, and they often cross each other’s paths. There have been movies made on Indian cricketers who have been legends in real life. Bollywood stars are the owners of the franchises that are part of the Indian Premier League.

IPL is one of the most watched cricket leagues in the world and bookmakers fancy giving some great odds and bonuses during the time the tournament takes place.
