How Can Fans Gear Up For IPL 2022? 

The emergence of applications like Dream11 has increased the popularity of fantasy and online cricket games. According to a Ficci-EY report, the Indian fantasy sports business is predicted to reach $2.5 billion by 2022.

When the IPL season arrives, many people question how to generate money in an easy and enjoyable manner. So, if you’re interested in learning how to make money using IPL, we’ve got good news for you!

If you appreciate cricket and have a thorough grasp of the game, you can utilize your knowledge to make money from IPL on Probo by expressing your opinions on various IPL matches.

What Is Probo and Why IPL Fans Should Give It A Try?

Probo is an opinion trading platform where you could answer cricket-related questions (including IPL) and receive money for each correct prediction. The app is used by over 30 lakh people in India, and the number is rising. While you may be familiar with other Fantasy league apps like Dream 11 and MPL, here’s something unique for a change.

Let’s look at an example to help you understand. We’ll presume you’re looking for IPL forecasts. Probo, an opinion trading platform, has a multitude of event questions based on IPL matches, such as:

  •  Will Rohit Sharma score 500 runs or more in the IPL in 2022?
  •  Will the IPL 2022 be won by Lucknow or Ahmedabad?
  •  Will Virat Kohli get a century in today’s game?

Here, instead of creating complex teams, keeping up with other players, all you do is share your opinions on IPL matches in the form of predictions, and you earn money based on the actual outcome of the match rather than merely sharing them with your friends and family.

Keeping Up With IPL Made Easy For You

BCCI has finalised 2 new franchises – Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans that are all set to enter the competition along with the eight older teams. The IPL auction 2022 was conducted in February, and cricket buffs all over the world are eagerly waiting for the revelations that will be made at the event.  

Lucknow Super Giants Franchise

Lucknow will be one of two new clubs in the IPL in 2022. The Lucknow franchise is owned by Rajiv Goenka’s RPSG Group. The consortium bid Rs. 7090 crores for the Lucknow squad. During the bidding procedure, BCCI obtained the highest bid.

In 2016 and 2017, the RPSG Group controlled the Rising Pune Supergiants. Lucknow negotiated for the leadership with KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer. Moreover, in the IPL 2022, the team may be known as the Lucknow Super Giants.

Gujarat Titans Franchise

The Ahmedabad franchise is owned by CVC Capitals. It is a British investment business that also invests in sports including Formula One racing, football, and rugby. The consortium proposed Rs. 5,625 crore to acquire control of the franchise. According to sources, the squad would compete under the moniker Gujarat Titans in the event.

Why Did The BCCI Officially Publish The Dates For The Ipl 2022 Yet?

BCCI wants the CPL to be moved up by 10 days: The Caribbean Premier League is the reason why the BCCI is yet to release the dates. The IPL 2022 season will run from August 28th to September 19th. Because the BCCI intends to start the remaining IPL 2022 games on September 17th, they want IPL 2022 to be accelerated by 7-10 days so that all Caribbean and other players may compete in IPL Phase 2.

IPL 2022: What Else is New This Season?

While the addition of the two new teams is one of the biggest changes in IPL 2022, there are a few other things that make this season of the Indian Premier League different from the previous seasons. Let’s take a look at what else is new in IPL 2022.  

  • Format of the Team

BCCI is planning to bring about changes in the format of the competition for IPL 2022. Till now, IPL was conducted in a round-robin format. However, the group format will be followed in IPL 2022. All the ten teams will be put in two groups of five teams each, and each team in a group will play with every team from the opposing group in the first round.

  • Duration of the Season

Now that the number of teams has increased, IPL 2022 will be longer than any previous season. This season is expected to last up to 60 days as opposed to 54 days. 

  • Salary Cap 

The salary cap for IPL 2022 has also increased from Rs. 80 Crores to Rs. 90 Crores. This will lead to higher profits for the franchises, the players, and even the board. The increased number of matches and increased salaries would collectively contribute to these increased profits. The revenue will increase due to new broadcast deals.

All in all, IPL 2022 is going to bring a season of excitement and thrill, especially for cricket lovers. It will be gripping to see how these new teams perform and if they will pose a serious competition to the existing champions.
