Former IPL chairman Lalit Modi has said that reforms are needed to continue as the IPL’s global leader in the T20 format. It was suggested that the 30 yards circle in the field be shortened. It is also recommended to take the IPL to America, Europe and Africa. He wants to tell franchisees to select players from member countries of the International Cricket Council (ICC) for that. “The IPL must go to the next level. It fell into the groove. I have not seen any innovations since I left India in 2010. ” Modi said in an exclusive interview to a news channel. “I never missed an opportunity to take the league forward. We took the IPL to the cinemas. We’ve tied up with YouTube to stream the matches live. ” Lalit Modi, 56, insisted.
Modi wants to reduce the circle in the field to keep pace with the changing times. “The IPL needs to get bigger. The 30-yard circle should become smaller. The players are fit. Running improved. I believe a better bowling team will always reach the playoffs. ” He said. “People want sixes, but we do not want the IPL to go the way of the NBA (National Basketball Association).” Said. In view of the fans who support the tournament, it is urged to make more use of technology. “I want the world to copy and follow IPL innovations. BCCI recently added two new franchises. 10 teams will compete from the 2022 IPL edition. 10 teams are right for the tournament, ”Modi said.
“I want the IPL on TV in America, Europe and all over Africa. You need to get talent from there and take the game to those areas. The ICC 2024 World Cup is hosted by the West Indies, USA. That should have happened a long time ago. ” Said. Modi left India in May 2010 claiming he was in mortal danger from the underworld. He said the format would also change from 2022 with the addition of two teams. He said there was a possibility of extending the duration of the tournament as well. Modi warns that stalemate is inevitable if the tournament is extended beyond the stipulated time.
“The ideal duration for the IPL is always 50 days. The tournament cannot be stretched, as the number of matches would be around 75 if not played like in the Premier League. ” He said. When deciding the IPL duration from 2022, it is important to keep in mind the 15-day gap recommended by the BCCI Lodha Committee and approved by the Supreme Court. Modi started the IPL in 2008 with the support of then BCCI President Sharad Pawar.
