Most of the good players were around 500k, some earned more than a million for 45 days work, in the inagrual season of the Indian 20/20 domestic comp.

What will happen in 10 years time:

A) How many teams will there be?
B) How long will it go for?
C) How much will the top players be earning?
D) Will international players retire early, not play in tours to earn the big bucks in 20/20?
E) Will 50 overs officially die out?
G) Will they come up better names???

etc

From wikipedia:

Future Expansion
After the success of the first season, it has been reported that four new franchises will join the IPL in 2010-11, increasing the total number of teams to 12. The new confirmed franchises will be based in Ahmedabad and Kanpur, with Anil Ambani's name associated with the ownership of the Ahmedabad franchise, and Sahara Group is touted as the possible suitors to buy the Kanpur franchise. Other cities being linked with getting a franchisee are Patna-Ranchi joined franchisee or a team from the North-East to promote the sport in the region and possibly one team from the north-western states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarkhand. A second Mumbai or Delhi team has also been proposed for future expansion of two teams to take place in the 2012-13 season.<sup>[15]</sup>

Expansions- 2010-11 Season( 4 new teams)-

  • IPL Ahmedabad
  • IPL Kanpur
  • Any two from the following-
1. A Patna-Ranchi joined franchisee 2. A team from the North-East 3. A team from the north-western states of Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttarkhand

The unselected team from the 3 will be considered for the next set of expansions in the 2012-13 season.

2012-13 Season( 2 new teams)-

  • The unselected 3rd team from above
  • Possibly a second franchisee from Delhi's suburbs( Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, Faridabad, NOIDA and Greater NOIDA) and New Delhi combined
  • Possibly a second franchisee from Mumbai or a new franchisee from Pune
If this goes ahead, the IPL will almost double in size from 8 - 14 teams. Assuming they persist with a home and away schedule, that'll mean at least 26 games per season, per team. Fixture congestion and money (most teams hope to be in profit next year and there's a massive TV deal in place) will dictate that the IPL and Twenty20 in general will supercede one day cricket in terms of importance in my opinion.
