An IPL workshop was held for the franchises at a Mumbai suburban hotel on Wednesday and Shukla expressed his satisfaction after day's proceedings. He, however, added that there was no discussion on the Lodha panel recommendations.

"It was a very fruitful day with franchise representatives taking an active part in the exchanges. The main focus on how we can make experience of fans better, their comfort. The IPL fan-based parks were a huge hit last year. So from 16 fan parks across the countries, we are planning to increase it to 32. The IPL-9 will be bigger and better," IPL chairman Shukla said.

"No there has been no discussions on that. First, BCCI members need to meet and discuss the recommendations by the panel. Our president Shashank Manohar is looking into the matter."
