While the Indian Premier League 2021 has yet to be completed, many people are already looking forward to the 2022 edition. After all, the IPL will expand to ten teams with the addition of two additional clubs. Since the 2014 season, eight teams have competed in the gala tournament. As a result, the tournament expansion will be exciting to watch.

The BCCI is expected to release the tender papers for the two additional franchises shortly. With the IPL being the most well-known T20 tournament globally, several prominent companies and business moguls are vying to buy teams. According to sources, both teams' bidding will begin at INR 2000 crore. As a result, BCCI may anticipate adding around INR 5000 crore to their coffers.

Meanwhile, the bases for the two new teams are still to be determined. Due to the stadium in the venue, Lucknow and Ahmedabad are the front runners to become new bases. The Narendra Modi Cricket Stadium, the world's most extensive cricket infrastructure, was inaugurated in Ahmedabad, Gujarat. It can hold more than 1.10 lakh people.

Lucknow, the state capital of Uttar Pradesh, might alternatively serve as the new city's headquarters. The Atal Bihari Vajpayee Stadium is a world-class facility in the city. The city's dense population would persuade the BCCI to consider Lucknow.

Nagpur, Visakhapatnam, Pune, Raipur, and Ranchi are also vying for a spot in the IPL. None of these cities, however, are likely to be preferred over Ahmedabad or Lucknow. Meanwhile, enterprises with a revenue of merely INR 3000 crore are eligible to bid for franchises. As a result, the outcome of the auction will be exciting to watch.

In the meantime, cricket fans are eagerly anticipating the second leg of the IPL 2021. All remaining matches will be held in the United Arab Emirates once the gala competition begins on September 19. Now that half of the season is over, and the tournament won't be the same for all eight clubs. While some will fight for their lives, others are on the verge of making the playoffs.
