The annual general meeting of the BCCI is held in Ahmedabad. The meeting approved the decision to include two more franchises in the Indian Premier League. Rajiv Shukla, the former chairman of the IPL, has also been selected as the BCCI vice-president. Former Rajya Sabha MP Rajeev Shukla was earlier the chairman of the IPL.
In view of the popularity of the IPL, various organizations were keen to include new franchises. There will be eight teams in the 2021 IPL tournament. It has been decided to include 2 new franchises in IPL Season-22. All first-class cricketers will be paid a fair wage due to the Corona epidemic. The Syed Mushtaq Alli T20 Championship will start next January.
Former cricketer Sourav Ganguly will remain the chairman of the BCCI as before, and Jai Shah will continue as the BCCI secretary. However, in the IPL season-22, it has become almost clear that 10 teams are playing and the match is likely to increase according to the team. According to reports, a total of 94 matches will be played if the 10 teams take part in the IPL, and the tournament will last for two and a half months.
