BCCI is planning to launch a mini-version of the tournament with UAE being considered as the most favoured destination, IPL Chairman Rajeev Shukla said. Recently, Shukla said, "One concept that we are deliberating and considering is launching a mini edition of the IPL overseas. We have seen that there is huge attraction for IPL overseas. Earlier, we used to stage our Champions League T20 abroad and that slot is still vacant. We are thinking of a mini edition in that slot."
