The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) throughout the 89th Annual General Meeting held in Ahmedabad had declared that a 10-team IPL could be attainable within the 2022 version. This meant that the 2022 version would witness two new groups coming into into the fray. There was earlier hypothesis that Malayalam famous person Mohanlal and Bollywood star Salman Khan would apparently be bidding to be the house owners. However, the BCCI has now reportedly determined to alter their stance with studies rising that IPL 2022 may solely be a nine-team affair and never a 10-team version. In a report by Times of India, including two new groups may end in altering the complete format of the league phases and that will contain renegotiation with companions of the Indian Premier League.
More importantly, the IPL media rights finish by 2023 and if the BCCI has to get extra worth, then it would make sense to push the arrival of the tenth workforce at the very least by a few seasons. The tenders for the new IPL media rights cycle will be floated by this year-end. Thus, in IPL 2023 and even by IPL 2024, there may very well be new media broadcasting rights that may fetch an enormous quantity to the BCCI in addition to the bids which the potential tenth workforce would derive.
Huge logistical equations
The International Cricket Council is busy engaged on the Future Tours Program and the IPL has a delegated window for it within the interval of April to May. However, with the opportunity of two new groups and with the schedule nonetheless unsure as a result of coronavirus pandemic, including the 2 groups will have quite a lot of logistical points. If one calculates the house and away scenario for 9 groups, it boils all the way down to 74 league video games which are nonetheless viable. A ten-team IPL may consequence within the extension of the event by one other month.
A ten-team IPL in 2022 may make the scenario when it involves cash and scheduling a bit too sophisticated for the BCCI. If such a step takes place, then there are even doubts that a mega public sale will be performed in IPL 2022 because the addition of just one new workforce may not end in too many adjustments to the core of other sides. Once the 10-team IPL is officially introduced, then the BCCI may go for the mega public sale along with the new media rights cycle on the proper time.
