Blunt Comment of Ex-Indian Cricketer Gautam Gambhir on the IPL

The Indian Premier League is ready to host its 17th edition. The mega T20 event was started in 2008, and since then it has been a huge success. The IPL gives India's domestic players an opportunity to brush shoulders with top international cricketers. This, in turn, hugely helps the domestic players learn and improve. Hence, it is no surprise that the IPL has seen the rise of many Indian stars over the years. Former India batter Gautam Gambhir has opined that it would have been a "worst decision" if the Board of Control for Cricket in India had not started the tournament.
In a Q&A session on the YouTube channel Sportskeeda, Gambhir was asked, What if the BCCI had never started the IPL?
Gambhir said, “I think it would have been the worst decision made by BCCI because IPL is the best thing that has happened to Indian cricket.”
As per several media reports, the window to organize IPL 2024 is from March 22 to May 22. The final dates for the 17th season of the IPL will be announced once the dates for India's general elections are finalized by the Election Commission.
