NEW DELHI/MUMBAI (Reuters) - India's cricket board will consider adding two new teams to the popular Indian Premier League (IPL) franchise-based tournament, according to the agenda of the governing body's annual general meeting scheduled to be held later this month.

The IPL, which has an estimated brand value of $6.8 billion, drew record television and digital viewership during its 2020 season amid the turmoil of the COVID-19 pandemic.

With no COVID-19 relief in sight, the private bus industry could collapse — taking with it a vital US transport network

  With no COVID-19 relief in sight, the private bus industry could collapse — taking with it a vital US transport network The private bus industry - which includes scheduled service operators like Megabus, commuter shuttles, and private charters - faces a crisis of epic proportions. The COVID-19 pandemic decimated travel virtually overnight, and while airlines, public transit agencies, and Amtrak all received 10-figure bailouts, the country's 3,000 private bus companies were left without a paddle. Private buses account for 600 million passenger trips each year and serve a vital purpose in the nation's transportation infrastructure, industry leaders say.

The IPL 2020 playoffs are now just one match away. And yet, we don't know what the final make-up After the DC vs RCB match on Monday two more playoff berths have been sealed, with both teams Punjab and Rajasthan earlier joined Chennai as the eliminated teams after Sunday's double header.

"Approval on inclusion of 2 (two) new teams to the Indian Premier League" was listed on the agenda seen by Reuters.

BCCI treasurer Arun Singh Dhumal told Reuters that the AGM will be held at the end of December with Indian media reports saying the date of the meeting has been fixed for Dec. 24.

The IPL currently has eight franchises and its latest edition was held in the United Arab Emirates without fans due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

"We have been thinking in terms of a 10-team IPL for some time now, and we'd like to have two new teams from 2021, if possible," an IPL governing council member requesting anonymity told Reuters.

Local media has reported in the past that Indian conglomerates Adani Group and RP-Sanjiv Goenka Group, which owned the Rising Pune Supergiant franchise for two IPL seasons, have shown interest in buying new teams.

Both companies did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

During the AGM, the BCCI will also discuss its stand on the possible inclusion of cricket in the 2028 Los Angeles Olympics.

Cricket featured at the 1900 Olympics and was played in the 1998 Commonwealth Games but has largely been absent from multi-sport events, which critics say has restricted the sport's growth beyond its traditional pockets.

The International Cricket Council, the world governing body of the sport, backs the idea of the sport's inclusion in the Olympics but the BCCI has been reluctant.

The BCCI, considered the world's most powerful and richest cricket board, fears losing its autonomy and being answerable to the country's Olympic committee if cricket joins other sports for the quadrennial Games.

Andrew Symonds on his feud with Michael Clarke .
The Indian cricket tour that starts in Sydney will bring bittersweet memories to one of Australia's greatest - and certainly most controversial - all-rounders, Andrew Symonds. It was 12 years ago that a similar tour of Australia by the powerful Indian side set Symonds' career on an alcohol-fuelled slide which saw him forced out of international cricket at the height of his powers.And it was India that gave him a chance to retire with his reputation enhanced and millions of dollars in the bank.
