With two new teams coming into the ring from this year, the format has changed this time, unlike last season.

As usual, each team will play 14 matches, both inside and outside. But here’s the small contradiction. This year the 10 teams were divided into two groups of five each. With that, one team in the group … will play 8 matches at the rate of two with the other four teams in their group. Then play one match each with the four teams in the side group … only two matches with one team. With that each team will play 14 group matches in the league. However these 10 teams are also placed under the same group in the points table. The top four teams in the points table will qualify for the playoffs.
Mumbai Indians, for example … will play two matches against the other four teams in their group (Kolkata, Rajasthan, Delhi, Lucknow). Then if he wants to play one match with four teams in his side group (Sunrisers, Gujarat, Bangalore, Punjab) … he has to play two matches with another team Chennai. However, it is possible to know soon which team will play two matches in the next group … which team will play each match. A total of 70 league matches will be played, followed by four play-offs for a total of 74 matches in this year’s IPL. IPL matches were played in 2011 in the same format. That year two new teams in the form of Kochi Tuskers and Pune Warriors joined the IPL.
