It has been discovered that an elderly executive of the IPL procedures team prepared a note a few months ago with an intention to do away with standard playing XI.
According to the note, a ‘Power Player’ idea can be made use of, enabling a player, that is not a part of playing XI, to come in at the loss of a gate or change a bowler at any type of provided factor of time.
“The last phone call will reside the BCCI head of state. He will certainly go over with the IPL GC consisting of chairman Brijesh Patel and various other workplace holders yet a great deal of elements needs to be considered,” an elderly BCCI functionary told PTI on conditions of privacy.

“Nothing has been made a decision yet. Additionally with 4 days left for Mushtaq Ali to begin, can this principle see the light of the day yet? We don’t recognize yet,” the source said.
An area among IPL operations team desires to forge ahead and also introduce the concept throughout Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy (National T20 Event) starting November 9 but there is a section in the BCCI that believes it could especially favour one particular high-profile franchise comprising professional players.
“There is one specific group which needs a little bit of cushion during 2020 IPL with the typical age of its core gamers being 35 plus. Has the IPL operations man, that prepared the idea note, maintained that particular franchise business in mind?” examined one more official.
