Cricket Predictions: IPL scenario No 2 - Curtailed tournament

As per global advisory firm Duff & Phelps, the IPL will see a value drop of USD 200-350 million or 3-5 percent if the BCCI goes for a shorter season. But, that is still better than a cancelled season, isn't it?

 

Asked if the tournament could be a curtailed one, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said, “It will happen, because if it is April 15, then, in any case 15 days are gone, it has to be truncated. How truncated, how many games, I can’t say at the moment.”

 

The earlier announced fixture of the IPL had all the teams playing each other twice in a double Round Robin format, followed by the four-match playoff including Qualifier 1, Eliminator Qualifier 2 and the Final. However, with less time on their hands, it is quite possible that one Round Robin league-stage is done away with altogether and just 28 matches remain in the group stage, where each team takes on the other one once.

 

The derbies can also be slashed. This will not only be cost-efficient but ensure that all stakeholders are assuaged.
