The Board of Control for Cricket in India succeeded in securing the 13th season of the Indian Premier League amid the Corona epidemic. After the end of IPL 2020, now the BCCI is eyeing to make the 14th season of IPL a success. Meanwhile, news has come that BCCI is considering feeding 9 teams instead of 8 in IPL 2021. If this happens in reality, then we may get to see the mega IPL auction early next year.
In fact, according to a report published in the English newspaper ‘The Hindu’, the Board of Control for Cricket in India is considering adding a new team in IPL 2021 and this team could be from Gujarat. If BCCI does this, then the players of all teams can also see a big change in the IPL mega auction.
Significantly, the IPL auction usually takes place in the month of December, but this time the IPL has been delayed due to Kovid, so the auction for the next season can be held in January 2021.
Recently, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly announced that he will try his best to organize IPL 2021 in India. But at the same time he had also made it clear that if he is unable to do so then UAE will be his backup option.
For your information, let us know that in 2016 and 2017, a team from Gujarat has already participated in the IPL. The name of this team was Gujarat Lions and Suresh Raina was its captain. In 2016, this team reached qualifier 2 after topping the points table. At the same time, in 2017, it was at number 7.
