Reportedly, all IPL teams will meet to discuss future of the league on April 16.

If reports are to be believed, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has called a meeting with all of the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise owners on April 16, during Gujarat Titans vs Delhi Capitals match in Ahmedabad. It has also been reported that the IPL team owners might be accompanied by their CEOs and operational teams for the meeting.

The crucial meeting will be attended by the BCCI president Roger Binny, secretary Jay Shah and IPL chairman Arun Dhumal in Ahmedabad.

What is the main agenda of the IPL franchise owners meeting?

As per the latest report in Cricbuzz, the Indian cricket board will address several policy decisions, particularly stressing on the upcoming mega-auction for the 2025 edition. However, the agenda for the meeting between the two hasn’t been revealed yet, but it has been reported.

The IPL 2025 mega auction is likely to take place in January or February next year, and the BCCI might want to discuss the rules and regulations, particularly player retention, for the next IPL edition in the important meeting on April 16, 2024.

BCCI might stress on Players’ retention rule during the meeting with IPL franchise’s

The report further explained that the number of players to be retained before the IPL 2025 mega-auction is likely to be the main focus during the meeting with BCCI and team owners. Some IPL owners believe that the number of retentions should be increased to eight.

Apart from players’ retentions, the franchise owners and BCCI might discuss about to reintroduce the Right to Match (RTM) card for the mega auction. The RTM card made its debut at the 2018 auction and then it wasn’t seen again at the IPL 2022 mega auction. The RTM will allow the franchise owners to retain a important player by matching the highest bid amount at the auction.
