"Winter IPL", the 2nd IPL of the year

Recommended Posts

BCCI may need to consider the possibility of having 2 IPLs in a year. The 2nd could be a mini one based on a team playing "100 balls". Below is how I have imagined the format (to differentiate from the regular IPL):

 

Groups w/ SFs & F (for 10 teams)

  • The teams divided into 2 groups 
  • A team plays one game each against teams in the same group 
  • Top 2 teams from each group meet in the SFs, the winners of SFs in F 

 

Groups w/ SFs & F (for 12 teams, when 2 teams are added in future)

  • 3 teams in each group 
  • Group winners clash in SFs; winners of SFs -> play the F

 

a 100-ball event 

  • Power Play = First 5 overs (30 balls)
  • Mid Overs = Overs 6 to 12 (42 balls)
  • Death Overs = Overs 13 to 16 where each over is of 7 balls (28 balls)

 

Other rules

  • No restrictions on number of international players in a team (so provides more options to teams considering availability & need to adjust quickly in a short tournament) 
  • Max overs by a bowler = 4 overs, therefore, a team can do with 4 bowlers 

 

There are a lot of differentiating factors for the Winter IPL to have its own charm. 

 

Discuss!

The thread is not discussing whether there should be 2nd IPL (it digresses unnecessarily), which is likely to happen, but its format.

 

As for your question, domestic tournament can take place as per its schedule. In a short tournament, a team does not need a big squad. If select domestic players play this IPL, new domestic players will get the opportunity to play in their place in domestics … As I mentioned in the OP, a team can field an 11 with international players if it wants to.

Exactly  !

 

If the quality of players deteriorate due to fewer test matches / fewer matches in Ranji Trophy / top new talent unable to play Ranji Trophy then both the quality of the IPL as well as international cricket will go down.

 

I strongly wish that there is no 2nd IPL a year.

 

One high quality IPL for 2 months is the best.

IPL is T20s ...  In 2022, Ind played WI, SL, & SA, and will play Ire, Eng, WI, Aus, Asia Cup. & World Cup ... Extending this logic, India should only be playing limited cricket as more cricket would kill ...

It should be T10. There's not much difference between 120 balls and 100 balls. Just annoying to switch to 5 ball overs just so we can have this arbitrary 100 ball thing

 

Winter IPL should be T10 

 

Monsoon ipl should T5 (organised indoors)

 

Autumn IPL should be T3 

 

Spring IPL should be T1 

 

Famine IPL will be called superball. Both team will bowl 1 ball each (which will be optional. If teams want, they can forego the one ball and challenge for a dance off)

You could have been more innovative and spoken about Jan IPL, Feb IPL, Mar IPL, etc., where # of overs correspond to the # of the month so T1 or super-over Jan, T2 Feb, and so on. 
 

However, BCCI is unlikely to consider anything shorter than a 100 ball event & a 2nd IPL, which some cricketers including Ravi Shastri have talked about. 
 

So one can shed tears first (for no strong reason) and then accept … or be open to see how the 2nd event if/when it comes is more meaningful!

They need to play 2nd IPL in ChampionsLeague format.

 

only top 8 teams of IPL get to play it so there is some sort of punishment if you don’t finish top 8


 Difficult to leave out just 2 teams and when the 2nd event can have the option to play up to 11 international players (so different type of  teams)

Even if they have plans of a second IPL hope it is similar to CT format. 8 teams divided into 2 groups if we have single round robin, or maybe 3 teams each in 2 groups where we can have double round robin. Then SFs, bronze medal match, F. Incentivize teams to finish in top 6 or top 8 in the longer (summer) league, that way almost all games in IPL will have high stakes, even those involving wooden spoon contenders right till the end. 

 

Should finish it within a fortnight. Maybe host it in foreign venues like UAE, Florida, Guyana, Aus, NZ, RSA to engage our diaspora (also persons of Indian origin) and some gora/WI fans as well...to give it a more global feel and test our players in alien conditions (especially true in Southern Hemisphere venues). Winter IPL probably rules out Toronto, Eng as venues unless they decide to go indoor, that again is inevitable, even football will go indoor in many places by the end of this decade.

A viable option ... IPL is not just about Indian players but also international ones ... Playing in India makes Indian domestic players highly competitive as they are used to the conditions. Playing overseas will be a good experience for them, allowing them to understand different conditions better
