Just play IPL two or three times a yea. Soon no country wwould like to invite India even the money power of BCCI will not work .We have three day test matches which are more than sufficient against India .So we have more time for IPLs.Do not worry there are millions like me without anyhting to do so we will watch and you get revenues.

BCCI should go for follwing changes:
1. 90 overs two innings 4 days format should be introduced
2. if the batting average is below 3.00 then a slow batting penalty points should be imposed
3. if the fielding side force more than 3 runouts in a match than they should get reward points
4. for winning by innings bonus points be awarded
