The IPL was conducted in a very strict bio bubble condition in UAE which was much more competitive and overcoming from these situations, the season became extremely successful. This season was filled with lots of drama as it was very competitive as every team was struggling to enter into the playoffs. Every team was on 12 points table in the league stage. This season seemed to be very interested compared to other seasons. With the end on a tremendous success note, BCCI is planning to move forward for the next edition of IPL which can be there in next four to five months.

Inclusion of one more foreigner into the squad will change the game rule, as BCCI management allowed only four oversees in the playing XI in the last 13 years of IPL.
“Some of the franchises have been requesting from the last couple of editions to increase the number of foreigners in the playing 11. BCCI is yet to have a serious discussion on the same. Once again, a request in this regard has been made by some franchises. We will take this up at the appropriate forum,”stated by one of the officials of BCCI to Inside Sport.
If IPL is expanded, few tweaks in the format will take place says BCCI official.
