Looking Ahead

IPL 2025

Teams who had a good IPL would like to maintain their nucleus in the upcoming mega auction for the new season.


With the league being so competitive, it is very likely that big teams in the IPL like Mumbai Indians who had a poor IPL may bring in complete overall to their squad.


While the real focus will still remain to unearth fresh domestic talents, IPL will expect to see new thresholds and changes in the upcoming season.



The Indian Premier league is not just about the final winner but the entire journey which saw some breathtaking individual performances, games played with great sportsman spirit, and more often than not games ending with an edge-of-the-seat experience making the season very memorable.


The IPL 2024 Final Awards Night was truly a celebration of talent, hard work, and sportsmanship.


With more and more talent being unearthed, BCCI will have to seriously contemplate putting up 3 different national teams for the 3 formats and have a separate coaching and conditioning squad for all three formats as the game has evolved to a new level.


Upcoming Events in IPL: The next big thing in IPL will be the Mega Auction expected in the second half of the year
