10 team IPL event: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Thursday approved the inclusion of two new teams at the IPL at its 89th Annual General Meeting in Ahmedabad.
Meanwhile, fans will see the tournament expand into a 10-team IPL event starting from the 2022 season after BCCI gave a nod to it. Likewise, the IPL Governing Council has been asked to have a look at the details regarding the expansion of the number of teams.
Also, it was decided that the BCCI secretary and treasurer will speak to the government on tax exemption to host ICC T20 World Cup and 50-over World Cup.
The BCCI will support the International Cricket Council’s bid for the inclusion of cricket in the 2028 Olympics after clarity from the Indian Olympic Association.
Also, it was decided in a meeting that all the First-Class players, both men, and women, will be compensated for the curtailed domestic season in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.
The board is also planning to kick off the domestic season, following the delay of several months, in January with the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20 championship.
