Indian Premier League could feature 10 teams in 2020

Indian Premier League (IPL) is all set to expand from eight teams to 10.

The increase in the number of teams will not be a first time as 10 sides already competed in 2011 with the addition of the Kochi and Pune franchises.

"We discussed increasing the number of teams but it was an informal discussion. Anyway, the teams don't have the authority to decide on the matter, the BCCI will have to take a call but we are open to the idea," a team official, who attended the meeting in London, told PTI.

"There was a discussion but it was done at an informal level. There is no concrete plan as of now on how to go about it. More teams will lead to more games which could mean a bigger scheduling window. So, all of that needs to be worked out," said the official.
