According to BCCI secretary Jay Shah, the IPL will have a two-and-a-half-month window in the forthcoming ICC Future Tours Programme calendar.
Jay Shah, Secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), says as much. So In the 2017 international calendar, the Indian Premier League (IPL) will have an extended 10-week window to allow all of the finest cricket players in the world to compete in the popular T20 game. Shah also told Reuters that there are no immediate plans to add more teams to the 10-team league’s current roster and that any future additions must not lower the league’s overall level. to create a dedicated window for the IPL. We are in discussion with the ICC (International Cricket Council) and a number of other cricket boards, according to Shah.
“Let me assure you that the upcoming ICC FTP (Future Tours Programme) schedule will include a two-and-a-half-month window to allow for participation by all of the top international players.
Since this event benefits everyone, the ICC and other member boards have welcomed it, continued Shah.
So Currently, the IPL lasts for two months, which is the equivalent of a suspension of international cricket. In 2027, the league will play 94 games instead of the current 74.
The governing ICC will likely talk about the 2024-2031 FTP cycle next month.
The following five years’ worth of T20 league broadcast rights were sold earlier this month, adding $6.2 billion to the world’s richest board’s money account.
So this year’s IPL included two new clubs, and on May 29 in Ahmedabad, Gujarat Titans defeated Rajasthan Royals in front of 100,000 spectators.
The league will continue to have 10 teams, according to Shah, who also revealed that Gujarat and Lucknow Super Giants each paid $1.7 billion to join.
So He stated that “a number of factors, including expanding the talent pool without compromising talent quality, fostering grassroots,” will determine the IPL’s continued growth. creating the required infrastructure, among many other things.
Shah, therefore, disproved the notion that prolonging the IPL season will compromise India’s commitment to international cricket.
The BCCI is committed to international cricket, he said, “and it’s not just the marquee series like India against. England or India vs. Australia.”
“We want to develop a comprehensive calendar where we expect to help associate nations with continuous and regular bilateral travel.”
