Pakistan's objection to IPL

Recently, the broadcasting rights of the 2023-27 season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) have been sold for a record Rs 48,000 crore. After that, the Secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Joy Shah said that next time in the 'Future Tour Program' of the ICC will have two and a half months for the IPL.

The BCCI secretary further said that they have already discussed the allocation of time with the cricket boards of different countries and the ICC. However, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has objected. The PCB thinks that if the IPL lasts for such a long time, it will have an impact on the bilateral series.

Criticizing the BCCI secretary's statement, a PCB official said, "Joy Shah has said that he will give enough importance to the bilateral series. On the one hand, there are a lot of T20 leagues going on around the world. Then if IPL lasts for two and a half months, then what will happen? This must be discussed. "

However, Pakistan is overwhelmed by the sale of IPL broadcasting rights at exorbitant prices. The Pak board official said they were also happy with the huge amount of money coming into cricket. "The ICC will meet during the Commonwealth Games in Birmingham in July," he said. This issue will probably be discussed there.

This time the price at which the IPL broadcasting rights have been sold has surprised everyone. However, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly reminded us differently. According to him, cricket is not just about money, it is about talent. "The game doesn't have to be judged by money. We have to look at the criteria of talent," said Sourav.
