The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League is around the corner. The 2022 season of IPL will be a ten-team affair with the addition of two new franchises-Lucknow and Ahmedabad. Earlier this month, the BCCI confirmed that TATA will be the title sponsor for the next two years replacing Chinese mobile manufacturing company VIVO.
IPL 2022 Format
The 2022 edition of IPL will be similar to the 2011 edition of the tournament wherein ten teams were divided into two groups (five each). Within each group, every team will face each other twice. Group A and Group B teams will face each other once. Each team will play 14 matches on the league stage. There will be two qualifiers, one eliminator, and a final match.
