The International Cricket Council has agreed to the BCCI’s request for a lengthier window for the Indian Premier League. The IPL will now last for 74 days. The IPL 2023 season will now begin the second week of March and end the first week of June. It is noteworthy that the IPL has thus far begun in the latter week of March.
Sourav Ganguly and Jay Shah earlier in June announced that the IPL is scheduled to receive a two-and-a-half-month official window. It will begin with the IPL 2023 on the FTP calendar as per the final drought. Additionally, windows will be granted to the BBL of Cricket Australia and The Hundred of England, which will interfere with bilateral cricket.
The ICC meeting in Birmingham, when the recently suggested proposals were considered, is where the plans were made official. IPL will always take place between the second and third weeks of March and the first week of June. Jay Shah said that the IPL’s existing 54-day window will be extended. In addition, the BCCI has plans to switch back to home and away games. It will increase the number of games to 94 from the present 74.
India’s Future Tour Programme
Between May 2023 and April 2027, 138 bilateral international matches will be played by the Indian squad. India will play in 38 Tests, 39 ODIs, and 61 T20 Internationals. The increase in T20s is a definite sign of the direction the game is moving in. Most of the ODI bilateral series will consist of three games.
Following the success of the last India-Australia series Down Under last year, it has been decided to make the Border-Gavaskar Trophy a five-Test series. It went to the final session of the final day to produce a winner.
