new Delhi: For some time, there has been a discussion that ten teams will take part in the IPL of 2021 instead of eight, and the BCCI may soon stamp it. The Cricket Board of India (BCCI) may approve the participation of 10 teams in the Indian Premier League at the annual general meeting (AGM) in Ahmedabad, but it will be implemented from 2022 in place of the upcoming season (2021). This meeting will be held on 24 December.
The issue of including new IPL franchises will be the most prominent in this meeting to be held in Ahmedabad.
It is believed that in 2021 it would be a hasty decision to have 9 or 10 teams IPL. This will give the new franchisees very little time to form a competing team.

A senior BCCI official said, ‘There are many ways in this matter, which need to be discussed. Most of the stakeholders feel that there is very little time for auction before the IPL to be held in April.
He said, ‘You have to invite tenders and prepare the bidding process. If two teams win the bid by the end of January or the beginning of February, they should be given time for the auction, which may be held in March. In such a situation, there will be very less time to plan for the new franchise ‘.
The IPL of ten teams will have 94 matches, for which about two and a half months will be required. This can also make the international cricket calendar disorganized.
Along with this, the availability of top foreign players should be ensured for the entire duration of the IPL. The broadcast amount is 60 matches per year, which will need to be renegotiated. Star India currently pays Rs 16,347.50 crore for the period between 2018-2022 and is for 60 matches per year.
