New Delhi Apex Council, the largest unit of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, is going to have a very important meeting on Friday. Many issues are to be discussed in this meeting but the most attention and discussion is the future of the 13th season of the Indian Premier League. An important decision may be taken in this meeting regarding the organization of IPL-13 postponed indefinitely due to Corona virus epidemic. Apart from this, issues like tax exemption for domestic season to T20 World Cup are also to be discussed.
Will there be a decision on organizing IPL abroad?
A period of constant speculation about the IPL continues. Despite the uncertainty about the T20 World Cup to be held in Australia in October-November this year, everyone is eyeing whether or not the BCCI takes any major decision regarding the conduct of the IPL.
There are 11 issues in the agenda fixed for this meeting of Apex Council, but the focus is more on IPL. Such possibilities are constantly being expressed that the current season can be organized abroad, because the situation is not right at present due to corona in India.
On the other hand, even though the ICC has not yet taken any decision regarding the future of the T20 World Cup, the possibility of its postponement is increasing continuously. In such a situation, the BCCI is working on the plan of organizing the IPL during that time and it is believed that the league can be moved to the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
A few weeks ago, the UAE Cricket Board and the Sri Lankan Cricket Board had proposed to the BCCI to conduct the IPL in their respective countries.
Tax exemption for FTP and World Cup of Team India
Along with this, there is a big discussion in this meeting about the domestic season and domestic cricket of Team India affected due to Corona. It is believed that the domestic cricket season can be shortened, while the future tour program (FTP) of the Indian cricket team can also be changed.
Also, a big challenge before the BCCI is also related to the T20 World Cup to be held next year. The ICC wants tax exemption for the event of this World Cup to be held in India, but the BCCI failed to ensure this till the time fixed and in the past weeks it became a matter of confrontation between the two institutions.
The ICC has given time to the Indian Board to get the approval of tax exemption from the Government of India by the end of this year and the same issue is to be discussed in the meeting.
