Mumbai: With the successful completion of Mushtaq Ali’s first T20 match in any cricket in India after March 2020, the BCCI is now setting itself on track to host two more domestic matches – Vijay Hazare and One – Women’s Day – February and In March, it is followed by the Indian Premier League (IPL) in April.
IPL The BCCI hosts the 14th edition of the Wankhede, and excludes Wankhede, Bourbon Stadiums, DY Patil Stadium, Reliance Cricket Stadium in Navi Mumbai and the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) Stadium on the outskirts of Pune.
The state-of-the-art Sardar Patel Stadium in Modera, Ahmedabad will also be considered for matches, and the chances of holding knockouts in the last week of May are high as the matches move towards business end.
The IPL 2020 edition was held in 54 days in the United Arab Emirates.
Definitely the Vijay Hazare Trophy
For the first time in 87 years, the BCCI has decided not to host the Ranji Trophy, which will instead host the Vijay Hazare Trophy and ODIs for the next two months, while India and England will play four Tests, five T20s and three ODIs.
“Technically, this marks the beginning of cricket in India at all levels, both domestically and internationally. The Board should be commended for making a very prudent decision not to treat Ranji this season,” he said.
IPL-2021 will start in the second week of April and start tentatively from April 11 to 14 and end on June 6 in the first week of June.
At the moment, the BCCI is bidding to introduce a new ownership for the IPL, despite the necessary approvals from the public body to introduce two new owners.
Now the decision to introduce a new franchise comes from a well-rounded perspective, which will allow the board to get the best value from future 10th team sales. With the tender for the IPL media rights auction set to come out by the end of 2021, industry executives say the board is “taking the right action”.
The BCCI will also get more by bidding on one team instead of two because one team will represent 76 matches and two (with modified format) 74. “The two extra matches will mean more revenue from broadcasting and other partners. In addition, all the teams will play in two more matches and earn more from team sponsorship and tickets, sharing 20% of that top revenue with the BCCI so far.” , ”Say those monitoring developments.
However, the Ninth Team will only be available to play from the 2022 edition. Now, the board is holding a mini player auction for eight existing owners in Chennai on February 18 and 19. Also, the path to the 2021 edition of the IPL will be paved as the BCCI has decided not to float a tender or RPF again for the title sponsor.
“India cannot host the IPL at home, tell me, it is all set to host the T20 World Cup later this year. There is no reason why the BCCI should not build the same bubble here, “the sources said.
