Cricketer turned commentator, Aakash Chopra has suggested some interesting changes in playing conditions of the IPL 2024. The ongoing season is about to end and only one team, i.e. Gujarat Titans have qualified for the playoffs. The league stage has reached its final weekend phase and four games are left. The likes of Mumbai Indians, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Chennai Super Kings, Lucknow Super Giants, and Rajasthan Royals are fighting for three playoff spots.

Meanwhile, ahead of the final weekend of the league stage, Chopra has come up with some interesting changes. Taking to Twitter, the right-hander suggested the introduction of bonus points. For the unversed, tri-nation series and Asia Cups have seen teams collecting extra points if they win by a significant margin. Chopra added that the final leg of the tournament must see two games played at the same time.

“There are two changes that I’d propose for next season’s IPL 1. Introduction of the Bonus Points for winning a game with a huge margin. NRR is absolute but over 14 games is a tough math to understand. Bonus point is a tangible reward for playing significantly better. And also, keeps the interest alive for longer. 2. Provision of starting the games in the final leg at the same time. Today, LSG has the advantage of knowing the exact math to go over CSK on NRR…because CSK plays first. Same for tomorrow depending on today’s results. Thoughts welcome,” Aakash Chopra wrote on Twitter.

Meanwhile, the fans are divided over the matter.

Talking about the last four games, the first game on May 20 (Saturday) will be played between Delhi Capitals and Chennai Super Kings. The Yellow Brigade’s win will solidify their playoff qualification but a loss will make them dependant on other teams. After this, Kolkata Knight Riders will host Lucknow Super Giant and the LSG, just like CSK would face the same scenarios.

The last two games will see Mumbai Indians host Sunrisers Hyderabad while Royal Challengers Bangalore will host Gujarat Titans. MI need to win and hope for RCB to lose while a win for RCB will ensure their playoff qualification ahead of MI.
