The move to add new teams to the Indian Premier League (IPL) family may have to wait until the 2021 season, but there are likely to be new places for the 2020 edition of the cash-rich league. The eight concessionaires met on Tuesday with the new addresses of the BCCI office in Mumbai and the three disputed cities are Lucknow, Guwahati and Thiruvananthapuram.

Speaking to IANS, a room official said that although the Kings XI Punjab are eager to make Lucknow their second home, Rajasthan Royals would like to move from Ahmedabad to Guwahati. While the local team of Thiruvananthapuram have not yet decided, it is said that they can move to the new third place.

Thanks to the facilities offered and the city's crazy cricket fans. "Rajasthan requested a change from his second home from Ahmedabad to Guwahati, and with the Board's approval of the move, IMG will now conduct an examination at Barsapara Cricket Ground before giving the green signal."

For Lucknow, KXIP is looking to relocate to the city since the last release and has sent a request. But the polls played an important role in delaying the change. 

"Very soon to comment on Thiruvananthapuram, but again, the reviews of the Greenfield International Stadium was fantastic and the people of Kerala were crazy about the game."

Referring to Rajasthan's decision to request a change of place, the official said that according to the Radio Regulations, the demand for profit-sharing was one of the reasons cited for this action. RR believes that the required dividend share is on the upper side. Also, Guwahati is keen to join and participate in the IPL Carnival. '

It is also known that along with the Mumbai Indians, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kolkata Knight Riders, and Delhi Capitals, even Rajasthan is interested in ensuring the idea of IPL teams playing international friendly matches.
