The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is considering launching a T10 format cricket league, and it may begin between October and September next year, Moneycontrol reported on Friday. It said that BCCI secretary Jay Shay is working on a blueprint for the proposed league.

This comes at a time when the league with the shortest form of cricket, the 20-over Indian Premier League (IPL), has seen a rise in viewership as well as valuation. Earlier this week, Brand Finance released a report suggesting that IPL has gained the status of a decacorn with a valuation of around $10.7 billion.

The Moneycontrol report said that currently, the franchises have the right to refuse any new model that the BCCI proposes and is similar to the IPL.

The people aware of the developments, quoted in the report, said that there are some important factors that BCCI needs to consider before launching this new league. These include having an age bracket so that it does not eat up the popularity of IPL and how to ensure that the best white-ball cricketers participate in the league.

It added that currently, cricket boards are not earning enough through bilateral series, and this new series, and a potential revenue-sharing model, may help these boards financially. However, it may bring more danger to the 50-over format. ALSO

For India, the need for finance may not be as immediate. Recently, Bloomberg reported that Saudi Arabia is looking to invest in the IPL. Under plans, the kingdom proposed investing as much as $5 billion into the league and helping lead an expansion into other countries, similar to the English Premier League or the European Champions League.

No official statement on the new league has yet been issued by the BCCI.

 
So BCCI seen the light?

IPL Lite next year?

And then all players will see more money and jump onto this.
 
Keep it up BCCI. The sooner international cricket dies, the sooner a lot of us can stop watching cricket. This game will definitely die at the hands of BCCI.
 
A likely extension of IPL. If this sees the light that is.

May be top 4 teams playing or may be a all Indian IPL.

Considering the fact that India will likely skip the CT in 2025, this league will help BCCI make up the losses.

Who told you that india will skip CT ? India will play CT no matter what even CT relocate to UAE from Pakistan
 
I think that will devalue their main brand depending on how they structure it.

Too much of anything begins to ruin the profitability of a venture.
 
I've been saying for ages that we should have launched T10. India has beaten us again.
 
I wouldn't mind Hong Kong Cricket sxies type festival cricket. 20 games taking place in one day of 5 overs each. Loved that format.
 
I agree.

But we gotta make money and to make money we need to embrace the dark side.

I have repeated it few times but PCB should launch T20 Champions league...there is enormous untapped potential in it.

IPL owned teams will not participate but it can still be a hit without them. Not sure why PCB is not contemplating it.

Apart from die hard fans who post on forums nobody really cares about a T20 champions league.

It's why even the Indians realised it's not worth pursuing.

Perhapd when we get to the point of season long leagues and players playing for 1 side then it will be enjoyable.

But a Pakistani T10 league with the right players and marketing will have more viewership than most international series gets.

A cricket champions league is useless for various reasons:

1) No existence of exclusivity agreements
2) International cricket is better quality and always will be
3) No such emotional attachment
4) Cricket overall is a small market for a multi nation domestic league tournament
5) If it made money , BCCI wouldnt leave it. You know them.

Champions league has the nationalistic vibe though. In football, people support clubs of their respective countries in Champions league even if their own club failed to qualify. However I agree, exclusivity contract is something missing in cricket and it need to be implemented ASAP if they want people to take club cricket seriously. The present arrangement where a player plays for every random team is nothing sort of a joke. Only Indian players have exclusivity and hence they are so desired.

If exclusivity can be brought in cricket and if CL can be implemented properly with home/away games, it will break all records.

Exclusivity agreements would destroy domestic leagues of non indian countries. Something i am sure BCCI will try to do down the lane.
 
I think T10 may become an international format very soon.

I hope not but that's what it seems like.

#T10IsNotCricket
 
T20, the Hundreds and now T10

The day is not far when teams will just toss and go home.
 
BCCI May Start T10 League, Say Sources But Lalit Modi Feels It'll Be 'Doomsday'

After the success of the Indian Premier League (IPL), which has grown to be the costliest cricket tournament in the world, sources have told NDTV that a T10 league may be started by the BCCI. Though nothing is official, the sources have said that the league is being proposed in the window where the Champions League T20 was being played. The Champions League T20 was a tournament where franchises from different leagues competed.

How can a T10 League impact Indian cricket? NDTV talked to former IPL commissioner Lalit Modi on the issue.

"I can't see anything impacting IPL now or going forward. It is recession proof. It might become the No. 1 sporting event in the world in terms of viewership or revenue," Modi told NDTV over a video call.

"First there was Test cricket, then ODI Cricket and then T20 cricket. Now people are contemplating T10 cricket. Let's forget about T10 for some time. ODI is dying and it should die. People should focus on Test and T20s. Allowing another format is extremely detrimental to cricket. T20 is brand new, the teams are starting flourish. If there was another window, I would have started a second T20 league in a knockout where there would be teams competing and the top four sides would qualify for the second stage where the IPL teams may enter directly."

There is a T10 League which has been organised in the UAE since 2017.

"From the details I am hearing from you, the T10 league seems to be a tournament in which there will be a international club format. If I am right, it will be completely Doomsday from Day 1. Because there isn't a ICC T10 tournament, all the members don't have a T10 format," Modi said.

Stupid Idea.
Disappointing move from BCCI. BCCI should prioritize the development of quality bowlers at the Test level rather than keep producing IPL bullies.
 

According to various media reports : PCB seeks ministry approval for organising T10 league


The Pakistan Cricket Board has sought permission from the ministry of sports for organising a T10 league later this month, according to sources.

While there could be an issue with the availability of the players who are also set to feature in other leagues, former players are not in favour of organising such a tournament.

“The board’s cricket management committee wants to have the T10 league from January 24-28 and wants all the contracted players to participate in the league,” one reliable source aware of the details said.

“The problem is (that) some of the players are already committed to play in the Emirates International T20 League in UAE and some have been offered contracts for the Bangladesh Premier League,” the source added.

“A large number of players with good contract offers for the BPL are still waiting for their NOCs.” A few former cricketers, meanwhile, have questioned the purpose of organising such an event right before the Pakistan Super League which starts on February 18 in Lahore.

“Why have a T10 league at all? Hasn’t this reliance on T20 cricket caused enough problems for the players and affected performance of the national team?” questioned former Test spinner Iqbal Qasim.

Former Test player Mohsin Khan also slammed the decision to have a T10 league, saying it will not help in the development of players at all.

“Already, so many players are now only interested in playing T20 cricket and now with this encouragement of T10 league, the board will face more problems over availability of players,” he said.

The PCB is, however, keen on organising even a few exhibition matches in case they are not able to get the government’s clearance for the four-day tournament.

So PCB taking a leaf from the BCCI's play book?
 
After seeing the pakistan team I can surely say the goose is cooked for intl cricket for us.

Intl cricket will probably end up being world cups and marquee series like ashes , or maybe india being invited by England and Australia.

That's why pakistani players are better off specialising and polishing themselves in t20 because those t20 and t10 club leagues are the future.

Even if you look at pakistans best spinners shadab and nawaz their best format is t20 and their most consistent performance is In that format . Both have unfairly been ousted from t20s because of their performance in odi cricket In world cup.

I have been advocating babar is better of retiring and playing in summer in England as a county player and t20 blast

And the remaining seasons play in bbl , psl , UAE leagues .
 
The world needs a proper T10 league.

Not this rubbish where Kieron Pollard is playing for New York in Dubai.

Play a T10 night league in Pakistan. Play it in regional centres like Faisalabad etc. Get proper teams with a local flavour.

If you do this then it could be bigger than IPL.
 
Catastrophe.

If BCCI and PCB launch their own T10 leagues, I expect others to do also. I just hope ICC will not be stupid enough to introduce another international format (T10).

We used to play 10 over gully cricket growng up. Never knew it would be a ICC accredited format one day. What a fall from grace of gentlemen sport
 
Absolutely disgraceful from cricket administrators all around .


They all should start a T-5 league as well where legends like Rauf can bowl 1 over with 150 kph every ball and we can call him the greatest fast bowling talent of all time.
 
Pakistan's Cricket Economy cannot sustain so many leagues. It is struggling to even keep the PSL profitable on its own. These additional local leagues like KPL, Sindh Premier League and T10 will only serve to dilute the money, sponsorships in an already tight market, when the PSL owners signed up for the PSL Franchises, they were assured that the PSL will be the only T-20 league in the country and will be fully supported by the PCB.

Holding these various domestic leagues will further accelerate the demise of the PSL. The PCB needs to get their act and priorities correct.
 
Surely this is not cricket , PCB on a mission to finish test cricket ASAP
 
Fast forward to 2034 where we’re all discussing who should bowl an over in a game of F5i.
 
no need to promote such formats which cant enhance your talents, it would only be a waste of resources nothing more than that.

Thats the problem man. There is no real pathway from playing in the streets to test cricket for most of the masses.

I think most of the cricket clubs in my area play 20-40 overs max. The kids in the street play tapeball 6-8 over matches. They see test match and dont have any real affinity to the style of play.

Contrast to when for example kids go to football. They play the exact same game in the club, on the street and on playstation as they see on TV.

This!

Pathetic. its becoming a clown show.

Forget Test cricket, we passed that station. They are on course to finish the game in general. Our bowlers have become 2 to 4 overs specialists. Anything over 4 overs seems like a marathon to them!
