Former Team India batter Aakash Chopra reckoned that two editions of the Indian Premier League (IPL) are definitely on the cards. However, as per the veteran, the changes won’t come now and it will take at least five years to substantiate.
Over the years, the cash-rich T20 tournament has undergone plenty of changes. Prior to the 2022 edition of the tournament, two new teams, Gujarat Titans (GT) and the Lucknow Super Giants (GT) were added.
Chopra, who played for the Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) during his heydays, sounded confident the BCCI may think about introducing two seasons of the IPL after a few years.
“When you talk about this, then you feel if two IPLs are required. It does not matter whether it is required or not. Will it happen or won’t happen? That is the big question and I feel it will happen,” Chopra was quoted as saying on his official YouTube channel.
“It will not happen now, it will not happen in this rights cycle, it will not happen in the next five years, but it will happen in the five years after that. It will 100% happen, there will be a big IPL, where there will be 94 matches, and one small IPL which will be over in one month, where all teams will play each other maybe once,” he added.
