    BCCI approves 10-team Indian Premier League from 2022 edition [Post#25]

    NEW DELHI/MUMBAI (Reuters) - India’s cricket board will consider adding two new teams to the popular Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise-based tournament, according to the agenda of the governing body’s annual general meeting scheduled to be held later this month.


    The IPL, which has an estimated brand value of $6.8 billion, drew record television and digital viewership during its 2020 season amid the turmoil of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    “Approval on inclusion of 2 (two) new teams to the Indian Premier League” was listed on the agenda seen by Reuters.

    BCCI treasurer Arun Singh Dhumal told Reuters that the AGM will be held at the end of December with Indian media reports saying the date of the meeting has been fixed for Dec. 24.

    The IPL currently has eight franchises and its latest edition was held in the United Arab Emirates without fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    “We have been thinking in terms of a 10-team IPL for some time now, and we’d like to have two new teams from 2021, if possible,” an IPL governing council member requesting anonymity told Reuters.

    Local media has reported in the past that Indian conglomerates Adani Group and RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, which owned the Rising Pune Supergiant franchise for two IPL seasons, have shown interest in buying new teams.

    Both companies did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    During the AGM, the BCCI will also discuss its stand on the possible inclusion of cricket in the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics.

    Cricket featured at the 1900 Olympics and was played in the 1998 Commonwealth Games but has largely been absent from multi-sport events, which critics say has restricted the sport’s growth beyond its traditional pockets.

    The International Cricket Council, the world governing body of the sport, backs the idea of the sport’s inclusion in the Olympics but the BCCI has been reluctant.

    The BCCI, considered the world’s most powerful and richest cricket board, fears losing its autonomy and being answerable to the country’s Olympic committee if cricket joins other sports for the quadrennial Games.

    Olympics can help cricket grow

    Rich goverments will directly fund cricket for its growth. BCCI need to look at the bigger picture, next 30 to 40 years.

    If its not at the cost of international calendar than I guess they can add as many teams as they deem feasible but if its going to be at cost of international cricket like the IPL season is previously then obviously it would raise further questions towards ICC.

    IPL window will remain the same. More double headers if new teams are added to complete all the games in stipulated timeframe.

    10 teams allows a bunch more foreign players to be drafted in. Given the sums involved no international players nor cricket boards will be against this idea as money always comes first.

    This is another small nail in the coffin of the international game though. Just look at how hardly anticipated the international t20's between Aus and India are at the moment. Both sides will be resting and rotating and the fatigue experienced at the IPL is a huge factor in this.

    With Indian Premier League season 13 over, all eyes are on the next edition and what shape and size it will take. Various stakeholders—BCCI, franchise owners, broadcasters and players—have given a huge thumbs-up to the recently concluded edition held in the UAE, deeming it a super success. But all eyes are now on the BCCI AGM set to be held on December 24, where top on the agenda is approval for the addition of two new teams to the IPL.

    Speaking at a Global Sports Summit conference organised by FICCI, Rajeev Shukla, former chairman of the IPL Governing Council and veteran cricket administrator, said the IPL 2020 was organised successfully in adverse circumstances and this had only strengthened brand IPL further. "Many within BCCI were keen to declare it a zero year but the office-bearers sat together and decided if we don't resume cricket, what kind of signal will we be sending to the cricket world? It was a bold decision by Sourav Ganguly, Jay Shah, Brijesh Patel to hold the IPL."

    The discussion moderated by former Team India manager Amrit Mathur included VVS Laxman, Star Sports CEO Sanjog Gupta, Knight Riders Sport CEO Venky Mysore, apart from Shukla.

    Speaking from players' perspective, former India player and currently SunRisers Hyderabad mentor Laxman said, "It was quite challenging for players—before reaching UAE everyone was thinking how it would pan out. But once we landed there, we saw all things were taken care of, the franchisees had managed things to ensure they maintained a healthy mindset throughout the two months we were there. Once IPL started, the intensity from players and the quality of cricket was excellent. All credit to BCCI; they took care of their well being."

    The viewership had increased, the advertising had been robust and the cricket was of good quality—all these has given everyone involved reasons to be bullish about what lies ahead for the T20 competition.

    Asked what was the way forward to strengthen IPL as a brand further, Shukla said, "The Board is doing value additions—adding more elements in terms of technology keeping the viewers in mind. Increasing the teams from eight to 10, the broadcaster has given us that leeway to play certain number of matches within that framework. The tournament can be expanded. In future, the BCCI is thinking of organising fan parks abroad also."

    Interestingly, Shukla was also in favour of introducing a new competition on the lines of the now scrapped Champions Trophy as a way to expand the IPL. "That slot is still vacant, we should utilise that slot, and replace it with a better tournament, take the cricket overseas."

    Sanjog Gupta, CEO Star Sports, the official broadcaster, concurred with the expansion plan, while adding that "expansion of IPL at the right time is key”.

    “Timing depends on how you map the future of these two new teams—how much time you give them to build a brand. It is important for a league to be competitive."

    While talking of expansion, there was no mention, however, among the panelists, of the introduction of women's IPL.

    Asked about any changes he wished to see from players' perspective, Laxman said he was not in favour of any changes per say. "The Big Bash League has brought in some changes to bring more crowds in, it isn't as sought after as IPL. I do not agree with the changes in BBL or the 100-ball format either. The quality of cricket is very critical—the contest between the bat and the ball, you need that to keep the tournament interesting. For that, the wickets need to be really good as they were mostly in UAE. As for technology, I think we can give some more powers to the third umpire. Let more technology be used as the margins in IPL are very very small."

    Knight Riders CEO Mysore had a word of caution, though. "Don't underestimate the power of viewership. One cannot lose sight of the fact that cricket has been challenged. IPL has brought back crowds to the ground. We have to remain proactive in terms of how we engage them."

    The Knight Riders, who also have a team in Caribbean Premier League and are looking to foray into United States, however, are keen on BCCI allowing Indian players (capped and uncapped both) to play in foreign leagues. "Allow players to play in other leagues and expose them to certain competitive environments. This will help in making the product globally bigger."

    This, however, did not find favour with Shukla. "Sending Indian players to other leagues will mean diluting your own brand. It is difficult for players to play throughout the year. We also have the domestic and international duties to consider." He further said that taking focus away from the spectators would be a risk that IPL can ill afford. "They are our biggest stakeholders. In Ranji Trophy, even if international players play, crowds do not come to watch them. We have to ensure we keep both TV viewers and fans on ground involved."

    If IPL pays enough then why do you have Munaf Patel and Irfan Pathan looking to make more money by coming out of their retirement homes?

    The IPL money might be enough to keep you going during your playing years but there will be bills for that high maintenance life once it all goes. These players need all the opportunities they can get to make as much as they possibly can

    Those two are way past their sell by date and I was referring to active players specially those who are either part of Indian XI or future prospect. Past players are freelancer and can pursue their goal as they wish.

    BCCI AGM set to approve 10-team IPL but only from 2022 edition

    The BCCI’s all-powerful general body will give approval to a 10-team Indian Premier League during its Annual General Body Meeting on Thursday but it will only materialise in 2022 instead of the coming year 2021. One of the major points in the agenda of BCCI’s AGM to be held in Ahmedabad is the inclusion of new IPL franchises.

    It is learnt that most of the stakeholders feel that having a nine or 10-team IPL in 2021 will be a hasty decision with the new franchises getting very little time to build a competitive team.

    “There are a lot of modalities that needs to be discussed and most of the stakeholders feel that with IPL being held in April, there is very little time for a mega auction and to have a uniform retention policy, agreeable to all the existing franchises,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

    “You have to invite tenders and have a bidding process ready. In case you have two teams winning bids in late January or early February, they need to be given time for auction which can then be held only in March. That leaves a new team with very little time to plan,” he added.

    A 10-team IPL means 94 games and nearly two and half month window which can throw the international calendar into disarray. Also, the availability of the top foreign players for the entire duration of the IPL needs to be ensured and the broadcast money per year which is for 60 matches also needs to be re-negotiated.

    As of now, Star India pays Rs 16,347.50 crore for a period between 2018-2022 and till date it was for 60 matches per year. Some of the biggest names who seem to be interested in buying teams include business tycoons Gautam Adani and Sanjeev Goenka (erstwhile owner of Rising Pune Supergiant).

    BCCI approves 10-team IPL from 2022

    Among the topics discussed and raised at the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) 89th Annual General Body Meeting was the number of teams in the Indian Premier League. On Thursday at the AGM in Ahmedabad, the cricket body approved 10-team tournament starting from 2022 edition.

    The members deliberated on incorporating two new teams into the Indian Premier League (IPL). According to sources, Ahmedabad, which is said to have the world’s largest cricket stadium at Motera with a seating capacity of 110,000, is all but certain to have a new IPL team.

    In another major development, the Board, in principle, decided to back the ICC’s bid for inclusion of cricket, in the T20 format, in the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics after getting clarifications from the International Olympic Committee.

    All first-class players, both men and women, will be suitably compensated for the curtailed domestic season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The BCCI plans to get the domestic season underway, after several months’ delay, in January with the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 championship.

    In other decisions, veteran Congress leader Rajiv Shukla was officially anointed the Board’s vice president in place of his protege Mahim Verma from Uttarakhand.

    It was also learnt that the general body decided in favour of Sourav Ganguly continuing as a director in the ICC Board. Secretary Jay Shah will be the alternate director as well as India’s representative at the Chief Executive Committee meets of the global body.

    The Madan Lal-led Cricket Advisory committee has named Chetan Sharma, Abey Kuruvilla and Debashish Mohanty as the new members of senior selection committee on Thursday afternoon. The names were declared in a statement released by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after the Annual General Meeting in Ahmedabad.

    The committee further recommended Chetan Sharma for the role of Chairman of the senior men’s selection committee based on seniority (total number of Test matches). The CAC will review the candidates after a one-year period and make the recommendations to the BCCI.

    The three new members will join Sunil Joshi and Harvinder Singh in the selection committee.

    11 shortlisted candidates were virtually interviewed by BCCI’s CAC - comprising Madan Lal, Rudra Pratap Singh and Sulakshana Naik - on Thursday.

    Earlier, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided to retain the zonal criteria for the composition of the selection panel. Jatin Paranjpe (West Zone), Devang Gandhi (East) and Sarandeep Singh (North) have completed their terms.

    As per reports, Ajit Agarkar, Abey Kuruvilla and Nayan Mongia had applied for the post from West Zone. Chetan Sharma, Maninder Singh, Vijay Dahiya, Ajay Ratra and Nikhil Chopra applied from the North Zone. Shiv Sunder Das, Debashish Mohanty and Ranadeb Bose applied from East Zone.

    In another decision taken at the AGM, the BCCI approved a 10-team IPL from 2022 edition. Also, it was decided that all first-class players, both men and women, will be suitably compensated for the curtailed domestic season due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The BCCI plans to get the domestic season underway, after several months’ delay, in January with the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 championship.

    The tournament was already too long, it just drags on and on. Do they want to make it a 3 month long championship?

    Won’t be surprised if it eventually becomes 12 team IPL.

    Ridiculous. 8 teams were fine.

    If 3 months is too long for a championship, I wonder what you would say for the Test championship that has/will go on for years!

    Soon enough, it’ll be a 12 months long event and Pakistani players will stop playing cricket entirely...

    As a fan of the sport, 2 months without international cricket already seemed like quite a lot. Not to forget, the fatigue for cricketers who represent their countries internationally will be much more as well by playing T20 cricket for 2.5 months.

    However, it definitely isnt unexpected considering how incompetent ICC is. There should be a balance between the financial aspects and the overall growth of the game around the world which definitely isnt there in my opinion.

    You and I both know that’s not gonna happen and even if for argument sake year long leagues are to take place then IPL won’t be only one. It will be similar to soccer leagues in EU.

    I hope you are not suggesting that force be used against the IPL by the ICC. The ICC has no right to force things upon businesses running a league. Sure they can withdraw the playing window, and/or prevent boards from NOC's for playing the IPL. But no right to stop the IPL from playing however long they want.

    I would say, let IPL play as long as they want, the ICC can take actions that are not forced, and let the market make the final decision. No force but free market should be the determining factor.

    ICC cannot prevent the boards from giving NoC.

    Yes they can take away the window, but i doubt they will get enough votes to pass it in the ICC board.

    It was bound to happen. How other boards respond to that is a big question? How much boards are willing to compromise on this 2.5 months window. I guess ECB will no flexlibity if it clashes with their summer, a lot cricket boards sesson ends till late march.

    It is tricky for BCCI.

    No of course not. However, providing IPL a separate window was a huge favour and that window just cant keep on getting wider and wider.

    Also I previously asked a question in one of the other threads; was this separate window for IPL decided through votes of all the member boards or there is some constitution in ICC? Also if some other league wants a separate window, will the same criteria will be used as the precedent has already been set? I am yet to get an answer.

    What do they like about the cricket? Do they follow one particular team, its players, their rise and fall etc. or is it all about "My Evening at the IPL!".

    The window is fixed. From March last week till May last week. Except England no other board has its home season then. English players usually leave before the last week.

    Except pakistan, most other countries have no issues.

    IPL was provided a window because icc members agreed to it. All board members vote to decide the FTP, majority must vote in favour.

    If another league can get Majority of members to vote for it to get a separate window..it can happen.

    IPL only got a official window from 2019.

    Thanks for the information.

    So looks like official window in 2019 was only a formality and there was some sort of understanding going around even before that.

    Half of them only go to stadiums to watch cheerleaders, take their pictures and post on their insta and fb profiles. Others can't take the pressure of international cricket and can't suffer heartbreaks like 36* AO so prefer to watch a low level league where all teams are Indians. Remaining IPL fans want to boast about IPL money and power on forums like these so they want a 60 teams IPL that will cover the next 5 years of International Cricket calender.

    So basically IPL running for 2.5 / 3 months after the inclusion of new teams will eat up 1/4th of an year. After some years more teams will be added and it will keep on going and a time will come when only IPL will be played for whole year. And ICC will be named Indian Cricket Council.

    No Pune will not be . BCCI has set a cap of one team per state, means new States will get teams.

    The board also decided to set a cap of one franchise per state. Consequently, the new IPL franchise(s) would be located in a state where no existing franchise has a home base. With Maharashtra, Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, Telangana, West Bengal, Rajasthan, and the union territories of Delhi and Chandigarh ruled out, other international match venues like Ahmedabad, Rajkot, Visakhapatnam, Kochi/Thiruvananthapuram and Lucknow, would be favourites to host the new franchises.

    Well done BCCI time it becomes a lucrative career choice for much more people in the population.

    Hopefully College/school cricket becomes a huge thing as well unfortunately it won’t due to U-19 cricket being huge.

    The BCCI has decided to part ways with International Management Group (IMG), which has held the events rights of the IPL since its inception, a top board official revealed on Friday. "Yes, we have sent them a termination notice," the official told PTI. It has been learnt the notice was sent earlier this week and the board plans to run its premier tournament with its own set of professionals from this year. The UK-based company had retained the event rights for the IPL in 2017 for a five-year period till 2022. The 2021 edition is expected to be held in its usual window of March-April but it is not yet decided whether it will take place in India or overseas like the 2020 one.

    The latest edition, which ran from September-November, was held in the UAE due to the COVID-19 pandemic in a bio-secure environment. It was the second time in IPL history that the tournament was held overseas completely (after South Africa in 2009).
