MUMBAI: With the IPL doing so well this year in west Asia, despite the pandemic, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) today decided to give the go ahead to add two more teams to the roster of eight, come the 2022 season. The cricket body has told the IPL governing council to come up with the modalities of including two more sides as well as the schedule for the IPL in 2022.

With two additional teams joining the league, the number of match days will extend, adding to the excitement amongst fans.

Over the past two months, speculation ran rife that IPL 2021 would have nine teams, which has proved to be false following today’s BCCI’s AGM in Ahmedabad. With less than four months left for the next tournament, it was decided to stick to eight teams for the 2021 edition.

The meeting also saw the appointment of Rajeev Shukla as vice-president of the BCCI while Brijesh Patel and KM Majumdar were elected as the BCCI representatives on the IPL governing council. Pragyan Ojha was also elected to the same as the players’ representative.
