Lalit Modi has decided to limit the number of IPL teams to 10, at least for the next eight years. Contractual obligations with channels, a limit on the number of playing days and the availability of players may even prompt two tiers in the league. He reveals more in an interview to Anand Vasu in the Hindustan Times.

The bread and butter of the BCCI are still Tests and ODIs. It's really important for us to invest in this because it's at the core of our cricket culture. What Twenty20 is doing is bringing new fans into the game. We were all worried about football making giant strides and capturing the minds of young people. Twenty20 has stemmed that, at least in our country.
