BCCI puts hold on the domestic season due to covid surge in India

IPL 2021 Updates: Franchises likely to Demand for the Change in the Rules.

IPL 2021 Updates: In the upcoming season of the Indian Premier League, the existing franchises might demand change in some of the rules. Though in the course of 13 years of Indian Premier League there have been a lot of changes to the Rules.

Mostly the rules get changed or revised if some of the existing franchises pressurize the BCCI. In the past thirteenth season of IPL, there have been a lot of tweaks in the Rules and Regulations to make the game more exciting.

However, this time as per the reports, BCCI is getting requests from some of the franchises to increase the limit of Foreign Players in the Playing 11 in a match.

The rule of overseas players in a team has been constant throughout the Indian T20 League. This rule has never been disturbed by the Board. But this time it is something that’s might get a tweak.

The BCCI permits franchisees to play 4 overseas players in a team for a match. There has been demand from the franchises to increase the limit of foreign players. It has been reported that some of the franchises have approached the Board for the change.

Demand For the increase in Foreign Players:

According to BCCI officials, Such requests are being made for the last two years.

A couple of existing franchises have approached the Board demanding an increase in the number of foreign players. However, BCCI is yet to take any stance on the demand, and the decision is yet not taken,” a BCCI official was quoted as saying by InsideSport. 

This is certain that there are going to be tweaks in the rules and regulations of IPL. With the addition of a ninth team to the pool of eight, BCCI might bring up exciting changes to the League.

But the official clarity is not going to come out till the Auctions. Once auctions are completed then everything will be clear to the fans and franchises.

The demand for the increasing number of foreign players might go undiscussed as this will reduce the chances of Indian Talents. BCCI and IPL don’t want to do that. The League was formed taking up this idea for the opportunity to the budding talents.
