IPL to have more matches from 2023 season, up to 94 games by THIS year, says report


Ahead of the e-auction for the new media rights of the Indian Premier League (IPL), the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has hinted at increasing the number of matches per season in the cash-rich league next season. The cycle of 2023-27. According to indications, the number will increase to 410 with a gradual increase after every two editions. It is learned that the Indian cricket board will schedule 74 games in the first two years of the cycle – 2023 and 2024 – followed by 84 matches over the next few seasons.

It could go up to 94 in the fifth and final season of the cycle, although the BCCI has kept the option of 84 matches open. However, bidders for media rights have been advised to go with the count of 410 games and not 370, said a report on the Cricbuzz website.

If this plan is implemented, it will be interesting to see how the BCCI/IPL will split the number of games for each team so that the desired number of 84 and the number 94 is summed up perfectly. It is likely that in the case of 94 games, each team will play twice, home and away – the regular format – followed by four play-offs.

So far, the league has been divided into two virtual groups of five teams, with each side playing twice against the four others in their group, once against four from the other group and twice against the remaining team. If playoff clashes are included, the number increases to 74. In the case of 84, the formula can play twice against each side in its own group, twice against two of the other group and once against the remaining three.

The report further stated that there is no ambiguity in the number of games for the special non-exclusive package (C) if the number of games in the upcoming season increases.

Earlier, it was reported that the special package would have rights to 18 matches in a 74-match season. And, it is now revealed that there will be 20 games for the 84-game season and 22 games for the 94-game version.

Overall, the number of games in Package C over five years will be 96, including each season’s opening match, four playoffs and double-header night matches.
