The IPL governing council met in Kolkata on Thursday and have decided to have 10 IPL teams from 2018.

The Indian Premier League Governing Council took the decision after going through the recommendations of the Working Group, which had also proposed running the Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals (RR) under new management in different avatars. CSK and RR had been banned from the IPL for two years by the Supreme Court-appointed Lodha committee.

“We’ve decided that floating tenders for two new franchises are the best option. The IPL would be a 10-team event when the two banned franchises return from suspension in 2018. We’ve decided this to honour the Lodha committee verdict. We’ve decided this to clean-up cricket and bring back transparency. The final decision rests with the Working Committee,” a Governing Council member told The Indian Express.

 

Fresh Auctions If IPL will be played with Ten Teams

“The CSK and RR players will be put on auction. If required, we will do a fresh auction for all teams. A decision in this regard will be taken later. We’ve enough time to do that,” the source added.
