Mumbai: The IPL governing council will have a lot on its plate in its first meeting in four months here as it finalises three new cities that will host new teams.

The three cities will be home to the new IPL franchises.

They council members on Tuesday will also discuss formulation of the guidelines for the bidding process. They will also take a decision on the eligibility of the ICL players.

Franchise representatives, however, are not expected to attend the meeting.

Another development for the new season was the reduction in the 'strategic timeout' from seven-and-a-half minutes to five. The timeout - which will be mandatory for both sides - will be split into two breaks of equal length with the bowling team opting for it between overs 6-10, and the batting team allowed to choose between overs 11-16.

Don't get this. Will there be 2 breaks in an innings?

they will take two new teams from the year 2011 NOT 2010. This time they are just adding few new venues. [Cricinfo]

Why didn't Ashraful get a contract when he was the captain?

Will there be any auction before IPL champions league

No... I doubt it. Auctions occur before the IPL itself. The CL itself is not the IPLCL BTW.

I sincerely wish, Shakib doesn't get a contract yet. Let him be matured enough to be able to handle the odds of IPL and not go down the line of other BD IPLers.

Adding a new team to play home and away will add 16 games. Adding two will be 18 more and (34 total) and adding 20 more (54 total).

At the current rate of one game per weekday and 2 on weekends that means 9 games a week. So IPL is basically targeting a 6 week extension down the line unless they start splittig up in divisions.

Should be a major red flag for the International calendar.

Why should he miss the opportunity of some 'easy' money? :)

That is exactly my concern. IPL already is too long.

Yup. The season is going to get too long. IPL is going to attract all the intl. players and intl. cricket is going to get really messed up. I'm not liking this.

You are right in a sense. But going to IPL prematurely, runs the risk of shortening his career. They hurt the confidence particularly by making them sit match after match. That can ruin the career of a player.

Anyway, IPL isn't running away, I think he should wait and go when he is sure to make it first 11 in most of the matches.

Yup, thats exactly what I'm going to tell my son when he grows up and joins the work force.

"Don't go for the easy money and big contract. Develop your skills and wait till the time is right. So what that everyone else is studying the new technology. They are just following the fad. You should stick with the old out of date knowledge and be proud of yourself"

Its funny when we can suggest the right decision for these professional athletes completely ignoring their livelihood and obligations to family for our personal entertainment.

One must learn to balance; getting all the golden eggs in one day or have patience & get one a day. Due to various factors, our position in IPL isn't yet as it is in case of the other cricketing nations. That's the reason, all the boys who went to IPL so far, came back as a reduced player. That doesn't help much, rathar these young boys need to have patience and try to make thier career longer, to help them and their family even better.

If a player goes to IPL, it's not depriving the fans, rathar the opposite. So Raynman, you conclusion is more appropriate for the one who is pushing them into it rathar than out of it.

At the end of the day this is how these players chose to make a living. Currently IPL is a one stop shop of where all the greats are playing and just being around it (even on the bench) can be a good learning experience.

Mash's stint in KKR was somewhat unusual as comparatively he wasn't worth the money they shelled out on him. With a team getting only 4 international players to filed per game, it makes it difficult for our players to play even if they get a contract. Shakib is showing promise and if he got the chance he should absolutely take it.

IPL is not a bad thing. Its successful because there is a demand in the marketplace for such a thing. If the public stopped watching, it would cease to exist.

Professional athletes have to make up their lifetime earnings within a 15 year time period where we develop our skills and work till we're 65 or so. Some of the Aussie players have the luxury to turn the IPL contracts down because they are well taken care of by their boards.

Cricket administrators will have to make room for IPL otherwise, players will retire from international cricket. Cricket is slowly transforming into a profitable sports business like soccer, hockey, basketball, football, etc so the focus will shift from international events to league/franchise based tournaments. Can international cricket exist in parallel with the quick-fix money of IPL? Will the craving and lust for 20/20 lead to the eventual death of test cricket?

I don't believe that T20 will be the cause of the death Test cricket as will the genuine stubbornness and the lack of foresight to rectify the issues by the ICC and the journalist/fans that refuse to acknowledge that changes are needed to Test cricket.

Changes are eminent and being implemented. Recently, ICC proposed reducing the test length to four days, suggested the use of pink balls and are aggressively trying to make it a day night event. Test cricket will lose out not because of lack of effort on the cricket administrators part rather the money generated by shortest format is too great of a quantity for them to concern themselves with preserving a traditional format that cannot bring in as much profit in five long days. Financially, it makes sense for the boards to reduce a test match or two in a series to substitute them with 20/20s to boost up the profits moreover, the players will never complain. Many fast bowlers have already expressed their preference for the shortest format seeing that they only have to bowl four overs.

The future of cricket is here and it is undoubtedly 20/20. I can suggest many solutions to modernize longer version of cricket:

1) Give first class cricket test tatus or equivalent status and have a first class season of IPL as well (free entrance to first class cricket games).
2) Reduce the number of international cricket games and adopt a model of central profit generating league format like the EPL, NFL, NBA, NHL, etc with 20-25 teams.
3) Toughen up first class cricket by making the pitches more bowling friendly and giving the bowlers freedom to bowl as many bouncers they want in an over so that bowlers will feel they are "not getting paid to get hit".
4) Introduce a world cup of test cricket (every 2 years) where there is no draws.
5) Penalize teams for scoring at rate lower than 5.
6) Make it similar to baseball and have them play 4 innings game (4 innings of 50 overs).

I realize that these wholesale changes will change the core-concept of test match and you could argue that it would be better then to just scrap it off the ICC calender in which case you would right but I think these changes are necessary to preserve even a shadow of test cricket given the lust for 20/20 and spectators' appetite for maximum entertainment in shortest possible time. Besides, Bangladesh can compete well in this type of format.

Check out my suggestions on this thread, we have some ideas in common. But following the thread you'll notice that there seems to be more of a demand for status quo and any attempt to touch test cricket is almost seen as blasphemy.

So three more teams means more international involvement.
To keep the strength even top players will be somewhat evenly auctioned, leaving the franchises more room to call up low ranked team members.
I see great prospect for some of the players, it may bring in fortune of a lifetime.

This are all very good suggestion. But my question is why don`t we play baseball instead of modified cricket to baseball.

Apparently he did have a verbal offer from one of the franchises last year on the condition that he would leave the ICL, which he didn't, at least not on time.
