With the end of the Indian Premier League last week. Mumbai Indians emerging title winners for the fifth time, the talks of a new team to be added in the cash-rich tournament have gained momentum. The Board of Control for Cricket in India is interested in expanding the IPL basket, which is of 8 teams.
Reports suggests, BCCI is keen on adding the new team to Indian T20 Tournament. BCCI is likely to release the tender for the new IPL team post-Diwali week. But as of now, everything is still and no further improvements are not informed by the board.
As per reports, the teams are likely to be based in Ahemdabad city and other in Lucknow or Kanpur in Uttar Pradesh. However, the decision is yet not disclosed by the respective committee.
The Adani and RPSG Group Interested to own:
As per the report of Bangalore Mirror, the Adani Group in Ahemdabad and RPSG Group are interested in owning a franchise in the Indian Premier League. The report also, says that the existing franchises have been informed about the decision to the expansion of IPL. However, the board is still silent on the possibility.
The existing franchises do not look happy with the decision of expansion. The teams want BCCI to finalize the venue for the upcoming IPL. BCCI had already informed that they want to conduct IPL 2021 in India if the COVID conditions are safe and the vaccine is in place. However, the UAE is set as a backup option for BCCI.
If the new franchise comes in, Mega Auctions can’t be ignored. The existing franchises seem worried, with roughly four months left for the IPL 2021 and in such a short span, IPL Auctions cant be conducted.
The franchises highlighted one more issue regarding the total matches if one or two teams are added. IPL has 60 matches as per 8 teams but this figure will go up to 76 if one team will be added and 90 if two teams are added. The IPL window is too short to conduct all these at that specific time.
