BCCI President Sourav Ganguly gave big information
There will be some changes in the format of domestic cricket as well.
New Delhi, There will be a change in the format of the Indian Premier League from next year i.e. 2023. From 2023, IPL will return to its old format before Corona. BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has confirmed this. In 2023, the 16th season of IPL will be played under the home and away format. That is, all 10 teams will play matches at their home and on the field of the opposing team. Ganguly has informed all the cricket associations and stakeholders about this.
Due to the outbreak of Corona epidemic, in the year 2020, IPL was held without spectators in three cities of UAE, Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi. At the same time, in 2021 also IPL was organized in India. But, matches were played in four cities Delhi, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Chennai. All the matches of the league stage of IPL-2022 were played in Mumbai and Pune.
In addition, the qualifiers, eliminator and final were played in Kolkata and Ahmedabad. But, now the corona epidemic has been controlled to a great extent. For this reason, this league will be played in the old format of the home ground and the field of the opposing team.
