Mini-IPL hits major roadblock: ICC members oppose BCCI's Proposal

In a surprise turn of events, BCCI's proposal to host a mini-ipl overseas is strongly opposed by 4 boards at the International Cricket Council (ICC) in Edinburgh.

BCCI president Anurag Thakur has been adamant on a ‘mini-IPL’ tournament taking place in September from this year onwards. The purpose of this is reportedly to reach out to Indian fans abroad and in the process, expanding the game as well as their financial stronghold.

However, the cricket boards of Australia (Cricket Australia), West Indies (West Indies Cricket Board), England (England and Wales Cricket Board) and South Africa (Cricket South Africa) are vehemently not in favour of the BCCI’s proposal. Adding to that, the ICC, led by the now former BCCI president Shashank Manohar as its chairman, wants the World T20 to take place once every two years despite a cramped international schedule and September seems to be a viable month for it.

Speaking about the opposition to BCCI’s proposal, cricbuzz quoted a source as saying, ”If true, it’s a telling sign of the reduced clout the current set of administrators (in the board) wield, unlike their predecessors.It’s also a personal embarrassment for the men running the BCCI right now.”

Earlier, it was reported that BCCI may postpone the mini-IPL by a year. The BCCI have not made an announcement yet but all the concerned people have apparently been told about it. The mini IPL might now be held a year later preferably in the USA.  The mini IPL was scheduled to be held in September 2016 as players from most of the Test playing nations will be available during that time.

Mini IPL likely to be postponed until next year

BCCI's efforts to start a mini ipl this year featuring all the eight teams somewhere in September looks to have reached a dead end with the Mumbai Mirror reporting that the tournament is only likely to begin next year.

The feasibility of the project, which is the brainchild of senior BCCI official and current IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla, has always been in question considering a lack of availability in the tight domestic schedule during that time of the year. With the BCCI confirming its earlier plan to hold the Duleep Trophy matches, which will also be played in  September, under floodlights, the possibility of a mini IPL was always going to be a bare minimum.

With prominent international stars also expected to be unavailable, getting a lucrative telecast deal in place was always going to be a concern and it is now understood that the BCCI will instead focus its efforts on procuring the best available deal for the 10-year period which begins from the 2018 edition of the IPL. They are banking on a bidding war between the two leading sports broadcasters in the country – Sony India and Star Network India –  to achieve sky-high prices for the tournament which enjoys a crazy following in India.

Though nothing has been announced officially, the report states that a meeting, set to be attended by the top officials of the BCCI and IPL franchise owners, that had been scheduled for the second week of July in Mumbai, has been called off.

"The meeting has been put off indefinitely. So there is a message there," a franchise official told Mumbai Mirror on Friday night, indicating that the tournament will not be taking off just yet.

"There is no doubt there is not much time but we will take a call once secretary Ajay Shirke comes. We will have a meeting in Delhi soon," the IPL chairman said.

Mini IPL 2016 Schedule, Fixture & Updates

BCCI announced that the New version of Indian Premier League will be starting from September 2016 in USA or UAE. BCCI planned to play couple of friendly twenty20 matches in United States few days back and that’s why joined for a meeting in Dharamsala on last Friday (24-06-2016) where they declare their planning for Mini IPL.

Anurag Thakur, the BCCI president, confirmed the development on Friday in Dharamsala, where the board is conducting its first annual cricket conclave, and that exact dates and venues will be determined later.

MINI IPL 2016 can also be called IPL Overseas as it will be held outside India. It was also announced by BCCI President that mini ipl will be a limited week tournament and hopefully this tournament will be completed within 2 weeks. All regular franchises would to participate into this new version of IPL.


Details of how a mini-IPL might work, or exactly where it might be played, remain sketchy.

But there is already proof that cricket in the US can draw crowds, with the ‘Cricket All-Stars’ series organised by Shane Warne and Sachin Tendulkar last year seeing tens of thousands of fans - mostly expats from the subcontinent - attend matches at iconic baseball stadiums in New York, Los Angeles and Houston.

The US remains a lucrative but untapped market for cricket, so taking a high-octane version of the game like the IPL to North America seems like a wise approach.
