    There could/should be a team based in Nagpur (Vidarbha Cricket Association Stadium) and a team based in Kanpur (Green Park) and then any extra will be good. Nagpur may not happen because of Mumbai being the Maharastra team, but there should be a Uttar Pradesh team based in either Kanpur or Lucknow.

    10+ teams would be great. I'm a big fan of the IPL.

    I think to make it better, the number of Under-23 players should be cut down to 2 and the number of Indian players down to 6- however, with 10+ teams instead of 8 there wont be any detrimental effect.

    I don't know about the stadia in Thiruvananthapuram though.

    Ja, true.

    I'm pretty sure South Africa played there in the test series last year (?).

    Added to the 8 current IPL teams, and taking into account only 1 team per district:

    Uttar Pradesh (in Kanpur @ Green Park probably)
    Kerala (in Trivandrum @ University Stadium probably)
    Gujarat (in Ahmedabad @ Sardar Patel Stadium)

    could be added with no logistical problems.

    There is no reason there can't be a team based in Nagpur except Mumbai would want all of the Maharastra support. Still, if there were to be an "EPL", there would be 1 team based @ The Oval and another @ Lord's so there should be a Nagpur team IMO.

    Yea, I'm not sure why Gujarat doesn't have a team. They should certainly have one, and not just for Ahemdabad.

    With due respect to Kerala, it is hard to imagine forming a team when the best player ever from that city/state ever is Sreesanth. Certainly within the present IPL rules of encouraging/quasi-mandating some local and young talent. (Could happen in the future, but it is what it is right now).

    UP (current crop of players being RP,Raina,Chawla,Praveen,Kaif) and Gujarat (has 3 Ranji super league teams in Baroda, Saurashtra, Gujarat) have legitimate claims and in fact better claim than Rajasthan and would field competetive teams under current guidelines.

    Next on the list, going by domestic cricket teams, is Indian Railways. They're making quite a lot of money lately and have a commercial brand.Would pick them next for an IPL team.

    And then, as mentioned, possibly a Nagpur based team covering Vidarbha & central India/MP.

    Well, the only reason Rajasthan got a team is because that's Modi's home ground. Guajarat definitely has a much better claim to a team - it would be better supported and financed.

    UP as well, though at least they have Delhi to support. Railways - that doesn't quite fit into the city/state franchise.

    No way should there be a Nagpur team- Mumbai and Pune (home of Maharashtra) are much stronger teams, while Vidarbha is a perpetual punching bag in the Plate league, with absolutely nothing at hand.

    Kerala may have a shout, but when the only real Kerala players to be anywhere near the national team are Sreesanth and four occasional players in the national/reserve team. Fair, there's a lot that Kerala can advertise as a tourist and culture destination, but from a cricketing point of view, they have almost nothing. In fact, it may be a World XI like Rajasthan (with prominent West Zone influence) or Hyderabad, who can be located anywhere in India.

    The cricketing centres that could use their own IPL teams are Baroda (plenty of Baroda players to choose as well as a few from Gujarat and Saurashtra) and Uttar Pradesh (with as many as seven national prospects to choose).

    If they add more teams there's no way the format of everyone playing each other twice can remain. It's too drawn out as it is. They'll have to have everyone playing each other once and a longer finals or, more likely, a two side conference system with everyone playing each other twice within the group.

    We do have stadiums here, University Stadium is there, which is perfect for cricket and there are some small stadiums like MCG (Medical College Ground), other unnamed grounds.

    Now coming to players there are a bunch of good players like Sunil Oasis, Ananthapadmanabhan (unlucky fellow who didnt get a chance in Indian team, he was superb spinner)..... We have good number of local players too... including me . it will be tough for the selectors... ( though i played only few matches with cricket ball, I could give it a try)...... I strongly want it to happen.... "Kerala United" our film stars like Mohanlal and mammootty put in some cash ( sorry for talking too much Kerala specific , they are Sharukh's equivalent in malayalam movies)......

    I will make a side bet that they are going to increase the length of the tournament.

    Wow, we finally found the man who'll be Dravid's successor, and also surpass him. I can see it now, he'll be nicknamed The Wonder Wall.

    but if they follow the same format and say include 2 more teams the total matches will become 93 ..that 34 more matches...dont see that happening..make it 12 teams 2 groups of 6 each total macth will be 63 and that is managable in the current window
