Good News for Cricket Fans across the world !
To cash in the success of IPL, after the season 9 of Indian Premier League got over, the newly elected BCCI President, Anurag Thakur announced his plans to hold a mini IPL overseas, may be in United States (USA) in September this year !
The exact dates and venues of this mini IPL will be announced later.
“In the month of September, the BCCI is willing to host a mini IPL or IPL overseas with all the eight teams participating,” Thakur told reporters. “[It will be] a shorter format, not home and away matches but a lesser number of matches; in a two-week window we will be able to complete it.”
Previously, around this time around in the year, Champions League was being held, but in 2014 the tournament got cancelled after the three founding board – the BCCI, Cricket Australia and Cricket South Africa – mutually decide to call it off owing to poor viewership, audience apathy and unstable sponsorships.
