Many people are looking forward to the 2022 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), which is already in progress. After all, the IPL will grow to ten clubs with two additional franchises next year. It would be fascinating to see how new franchises affect the T20 tournament, which has been an eight-team affair since 2014.
It should be remarked that this is not the first time the IPL has included more than eight teams. The flagship competition featured ten teams in 2011 and nine teams in the next two seasons. Many essential organizations and corporate moguls would be eager to gain ownership rights in the new clubs if the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decides to expand the tournament once more.
With the impending franchise auction approaching, those interested in bidding must decide on their strategies and techniques as soon as feasible. According to a source at Cricbuzz, BCCI intends to complete the sale of two franchises before the second leg of the IPL 14, which is expected to take place in July, and interested parties have some ideas about the final price.
In addition, the IPL 2022 will have a significant auction in which teams would be completely redesigned. As a result, players interested in playing in the IPL must excel in their following T20 responsibilities. Now that two more organizations have entered the picture, players will have more chances to go under the hammer.
Meanwhile, due to the widespread COVID-19 infection, the IPL 2021 competition, which was scheduled to take place in April-May, was cancelled on May 4. The remaining matches in the season will be played in the United Arab Emirates on September 19. The ICC T20 World Cup will take place after the competition. As a result, several foreign players may choose to skip the remaining games.
