New Delhi: It has been discussed for some time that ten teams will participate in the IPL of 2021 instead of eight and that the BCCI may soon put it down. The Cricket Board of India (BCCI) may approve the participation of 10 Indian Premier League teams at the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in Ahmedabad, but it will be implemented from 2022 in place of the season to coming (2021). This meeting will be held on December 24.
The issue of inclusion of new IPL franchises will be the most important at this meeting to be held in Ahmedabad.
It is believed that in 2021 it would be a hasty decision to have 9 or 10 IPL teams. This will give new franchisees very little time to form a competing team.

A senior BCCI official said: “There are many ways in this area, which need to be discussed. Most stakeholders believe that there is very little time for auctions before the IPL which will be held in April.
He said, “You have to put out tenders and prepare for the tendering process. If two teams win the bid in late January or early February, they should have time for the auction, which can take place in March. In such a situation, there will be much less time to plan the new franchise ”.
Ten teams will host 94 IPL matches, for which around two and a half months will be needed. It can also make the international cricket calendar disorganized.
At the same time, the availability of the main foreign players should be guaranteed for the duration of the IPL. The amount of the broadcast is 60 matches per year, which will have to be renegotiated. Currently, Star India is paying Rs 16,347.50 crore for the period 2018-2022 and that is for 60 matches per year.
