I dnt mind that...........


In future 2 more teams are expected to be added  … up to 5 overseas players in an 11 should make the tourney more interesting even for most international viewers

Yep test cricket can be played, random odi and T20 tours and triangular tournaments can be scrapped. 

 

IPl can be played for 4-6 months, remaining 4-6 months can be intl matches such as World Cups, test series, championships etc. 

 

Basically like Football where club football is the main priority and frequent form of football throughout the year, intl matches become secondary unless it's WC, Euro, Copa etc.

I will prefer triangular series versus good teams rather than bilaterals. Will save time plus more eyeballs.

 

Richer boards should arrange two series at the same time. For example, our full strength side play playing BGT with a second string side playing Afghanistan. 

Triangulars fell out of favor because locals don't turn up during the opposition matches, that's why they cancelled it in aus.

Champions league kind of tourney shouldn't have been called off

Mixed players across sides would have guaranteed more eyeballs

I said it in a match thread. IPL should become like EPL where it is the main competition and international cricket is a fill in.

 

let’s start with making ipl go from 2 months to 4 months then 6 months and eventually 8 months

Players be raking in close to 6-10 mil. Average players at that lol  year. Top tier players will be pulling 20-25 million a year. Just hope our idiotic fans don't put them on a pedestal and worship them. They are just players making money off fans. They are not gods.

The eng team were against it,they used to complain, they wanted to do their own thing with stanford,local fans too didn't turn up,and the more teams turn up more money gets divided,so it's not profitable.

Idiotic and clownish decision. Out of the 70+ games this year not even 10 are a worth a look behind.

 

IPL produces a lot of mediocre players!!!. ICC should cancel Bi-laterals and bring in more triangular/quadrangular contests for cricket. That's what made cricket interesting in the first place. 

Triangulars and quads for every country lol, logistically it's not possible, Maybe 1 or 2 counties can try it ,rest will miss their home season.

Money? What quadrangular will bring in mullah? No one wants to watch rivals play if it doesn't involve their favourite team. Domestic fans that is. Not profitable. Ipl is quick and finished in u der 3 hours. Good for a family day out. Good vibe. So it makes more sense.

There will always be 90 % mediocre players coming out of a league

What do you expect?

 

increase the foreign quota by 5 it will increase viewership, excitement, competition (for local players), quality etc

I like the IPL because it is 2 months of a different flavour of cricket per year.

 

But too much of anything brings down the quality and brings monotony.

 

If we toured England for tests every year then that tour would lose its value too.

 

I think the current set-up, with a great mix of 2 months of IPL,  around 10 /11 tests for India a year and around 20 ODIs for India, is great. 

 

Different flavours of cricket throughout the year and we remain interested.
