New Delhi: Jan 13, 2012

 

Indian Premier League (IPL) chairman Rajeev Shukla and other officials on Friday discussed the option of including the 10th team for the cash-rich T20 league in 2014, after Kochi Tuskers were terminated from the tournament last year.

 

A total of nine teams will be playing in this year’s IPL.

 

With nine teams currently playing, it is expected that the old format of the first season will be followed. There will be a total of 76 matches. The teams will play on the basis of home and away matches. Each team will play eight matches at home.

 

This can result in the increase the share of the central revenue.

 

If the 10th team is in included in 2014, then BCCI will comprise five teams in each two groups and total 74 matches will be played. Each team will be playing 14 league matches.  

“This is good news for all the teams. But we are not sure how it will benefit us if 10th team becomes part of IPL in 2014,” a team official told Times of India.

He even said that teams will be guaranteed Rs 50 crore of the central revenue.

After the success of Champions League T20 in 2011, the officials are trying to organize the event once again in India this year.

“With three IPL teams taking part in the tournament, the CLT20 league was a success in India. The organizers would surely want to host it again in India,” a source said.
