Former Indian opener, Aakash Chopra has come in support of hosting two editions of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and he feels it will be a reality in the upcoming future. However, as per the veteran, the changes won’t be taking place in the near future, and it will take at least five years to substantiate. Over the years, the cash-rich T20 tournament has undergone plenty of changes.

In the latest video on his Youtube channel, Aakash Chopra said, “When you talk about this, then you feel if two IPLs are required. It does not matter whether it is required or not. Will it happen or won’t it happen? That is the big question and I feel it will happen.”

He further added, “It will not happen now, it will not happen in this rights cycle, it will not happen in the next five years, but it will happen in the five years after that. It will 100% happen, there will be a big IPL, where there will be 94 matches, and one small IPL which will be over in one month, where all teams will play each other maybe once.”
