New IPL 2023 Schedule – ICC Tour Programs in the Future: The International Cricket Council has agreed to the BCCI’s request for a lengthier window for the Indian Premier League, as previously reported by InsideSport (IPL). The IPL will now last for 74 days. The IPL 2023 season will now begin the second week of March and end the first week of June. It is noteworthy that the IPL has thus far begun in the latter week of March.
IPL 2023 will begin in the second week of March. The 16th season of the IPL’s 74-day window will expire in the first week of June.
Plans for the future Future Tours and Programs have just just been completed by the ICC (FTP)
During this WINDOW, no major international cricket series will be played.
Sourav Ganguly and Jay Shah earlier in June announced that the IPL is scheduled to receive a two and a half month official window beginning with the IPL 2023 on the FTP calendar as per the final draught. Additionally, windows will be granted to the BBL of Cricket Australia and The Hundred of England, which will interfere with bilateral cricket.
The ICC meeting in Birmingham, when the recently suggested proposals were considered, is where the plans were made official. IPL will always take place between the second and third weeks of March and the first week of June. Jay Shah said that the IPL’s existing 54-day window will be extended. In addition, the BCCI has plans to switch back to home and away games, which will increase the number of games to 94 from the present 74.
What does the revised draught of the ICC FTP 2023-27 say?
The 74-day window extension for the IPL is confirmed in the final draught.
There won’t be any games planned during this time. However, cricket governing bodies are free to set their own bilateral series at this time.
However, the BBL, The Hundred, and other franchise competitions will not have an official ICC timeframe, unlike the IPL.
Bilateral series and occasionally one another will battle with all other franchise leagues.
However, in accordance with the new FTP, CA will have its own BBL window while ECB makes its own for The Hundred.
The fact that the PSL and IPL will likely compete against one another in 2025, at least in part, makes for an unusual situation.
PSL can only take place when the Champions Trophy is over in Pakistan on March 9, which ends that day.
The final week of the PSL and the first week of the IPL will clash if IPL 2025 is played according to schedule, forcing players to make choices.
Other than the IPL, franchise leagues are scheduled for 2023.
December 20, 2022, through January 1, 2023
ILT20: January–February 2023, International T20 League
BPL: January–February 2023; Bangladesh Premier League
CSA T20: January–February 2023, CSA T20 League
February through March 2023, Pakistan Super League
The busy FTP schedule for Team India
Between May 2023 and April 2027, 138 bilateral international matches will be played by the Indian squad. India will play in 38 Tests, 39 ODIs, and 61 T20 Internationals; the increase in T20s is a definite sign of the direction the game is moving in. Most of the ODI bilateral series will consist of three games.
It has been agreed to make the Border-Gavaskar Trophy a five-Test series in light of the success of the most recent India-Australia series played Down Under last year, which went down to the final session of the final day to determine a winner.
