Deccan Chargers

Across its history, the excellent Indian Premier League has had a few teams that have come and gone. The sportsbook India on allows all its members to start placing wagers on this excellent competition.

One of the squads that had a short existence in the IPL were the Deccan Chargers. This squad was part of the inaugural season of the Indian Premier League. The squad was established after the city of Hyderabad was awarded with one of the franchises that were auctioned in the previous years.

The first season ever played by the squad was far from perfect. In fact, they were the last team on the IPL 2008 general table. However, they reassembled themselves in a spectacular manner. The 1xBet India platform is a great sportsbook where there are many wagering chances on the fantastic IPL competition.

A spectacular second season

The Chargers finished last in the 2008 season of the IPL. However, in the 2009 edition of the competition it was much better. In fact, it might be argued that it was almost perfect. This is because the squad managed to win this competition. Fans of the IPL can visit 1xBet – online cricket betting sites where all matches of this competition are available.

This spectacular turn around obtained by the Deccan Chargers can be attributed in large part to the great names that they signed. Prior to the beginning of the competition, some of the names that joined the squad were:

  • Ryan Harris;
  • Fidel Edwards;
  • Dwayne Smith;
  • and Tirumalasetti Suman.

Eventually, the Deccan Chargers played a fantastic final match against the Royal Challengers Bangalore. The Hyderabad-based team won by 6 runs, which gave the team the only title in their history. The online cricket betting sites 1xBet can be visited to wager on these final matches too.

Dissolution of the squad

The relationship between the Deccan Chargers and the BCCI was never easy. In fact, those problems eventually led to the dissolution of the team. Of course, the IPL continues, and the platform is the best place to wager on it.

In 2012 the parent company of the squad wanted to sell the franchise. The reason given for the operation were the economic issues suffered by this entity.

However, no offer satisfied what the owners of the squad wanted. This meant that the side was unable to find a new owner. Due to many technical and legal aspects, the BCCI was not happy with this outcome. For this reason, and after consultation with legal experts, on the 14th of September 2012 the franchise was terminated by the entity in charge of the sport. The Indian Premier League is still a great competition to enjoy and to wager on at the 1xBet website.
