IPL expanding to 10-team format in 2021; Adani Group, Sanjeev Goenka and Tata interested parties

Recommended Posts

Good I was thinking same 

Why not make it 10 teams with 5 overseas players or 4 overseas and 1 associate nation player . The ones who say its about giving opp to Indian players- yes this plan is adding to teams more which will give more slots for indian players

Which will be the two new teams?  I hope one of them isnt the Boring Pune again. There is no need to have two IPL teams from one State when most of the other populous states don't even have one. 

 

My Guess Gujarat will be on of them. Another could be based in the Hindi-Belt UP/MP.

It will be based on bids. Adani may bid for Ahmedabad. Tatas will likely bid for Ranchi and Goenkas for Pune.

There may be others as well.

Really worried about the sport's future. 

 

No hype whatsoever for a world cup final. 

 

Dwindling interest everywhere except the SC. 

 

Very soon we'll have football style franchise leagues throughout the year with IPL at the forefront and occasional international games. :no:

 

Fukk BCCICC :whack:

There is no hype because it's in England, and whites in England have little.interest in ODIs

 

Just look at scheduling of WC finals, it same day as Wimbeldon Finals (Federer vs Djokovic) and F1 UK Gradprix.

Both tennis final and racing will have more tv viewers in UK and globally then the WC cricket final.

 

ICC and ECB are run by dinosaurs, cricket is dead sport globally. Only.major interest comes from India, in terms of players, sponsorships and of current viewweship. 

 

Every 2nd WC and t20 world cup should be played in India

Adani shrewd, will probably go for team in Gujarat and setup base in world's biggest cricket stadium at New Motera stadium with 100,000 capacity.

It's a done deal 

New Motera  stadium wasn't built for maybe just maybe one international game every two years and certainly not for a hundred watching a Gujarat Ranji Trophy game . 

Adani built  a new township of 22,000 houses, a cricket park, a football park , a golf and leisure complex  and a business centre with the promise of something when new stadium built .

Delhi Capitals

Noida ????

 

At the moment entire NCR supports Delhi lol

That thought crossed my mind too but major metros have historically supported two teams. Look at NY for example they have done that for a while.

Gujarat and Kochi would be most likely - outside chance for Kochi to be replaced by a Tata team in the hinterland.
