A big news is coming out regarding the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is preparing the formula to organize the 15th season of the IPL in a new way. Let us know that in IPL 2022, there will be a total of 8 teams instead of eight. According to the reports, there can be a total of 74 matches with this.
For your information, let us tell you that during IPL 2011, 94 matches were played between 10 teams, after which BCCI was severely criticized. However, the board is fully prepared for this this time.
A top BCCI official said on the condition of confidentiality, “We are not ready for 94 matches yet. Our broadcasters are not ready for this. There is also a question about the availability of foreign players and at the same time it is difficult to find time for so many matches. We will try to find a bigger window in the coming years.”
It may take about two and a half months for 94 matches. In such a situation, given the busy schedule, it seems impossible to get it done. According to reports, the BCCI will have to go on the 74-match model. During this, the teams will be divided into two groups. There will be 5 teams in each group. Each team will play 14 matches on the league stage. It is worth noting that after the entry of two more teams in IPL-15, the picture of this T20 tournament will change completely.
