Former India head coach and player, Ravi Shastri on Sunday night gave his opinion on the bilateral series.

According to him, the bilateral T20 series between nations should be scrapped altogether.

This discussion was going on after the Gujarat Titans sealed their maiden victory of the IPL against the Rajasthan Royals.

Other panellists on the chat show were Daniel Vettori, Ian Bishop and Aakash Chopra.

Additionally, all four of them agreed that IPL could become the bigger tournament with two seasons in a calendar year.

This year, IPL had 70 games in all which spanned over a period of 2 months.

According to all the panellists on Sunday, IPL should be given a bigger window as it is remembered more by the people.

Similarly, when a World Cup happens, whether ODI or T20, people tend to remember who won the cup.

But, in bilateral series no one remembers who won the series and by how much margin.

Thus, all the panellists wanted that IPL should be given more prime time for audiences.

Even Vettori and Bishop agreed that cricket could go the football, basketball or baseball way by increasing the number of games each season.
