IPL 2023’s New Rules Revealed – How They Will Impact Teams
It will be a home and away format for the Indian Premier League 2023. A total of 74 matches will be played between the 10 participating teams.
After the outbreak of COVID-19, BCCI made various changes and hosted the tournament successfully for the last 3 seasons in a home-and-away format.
As a result, the last three IPLs have been confined to fewer centres – the 2022 edition was held in Mumbai and Pune, and in 2021 it was initially held in India, then in the UAE, while the 2020 edition was entirely held in the UAE.
During the last edition, the tournament was played in six different locations in Mumbai, Pune, Kolkata, and Ahmedabad. Three venues in Mumbai and one in Pune hosted the league stage matches, while Kolkata and Ahmedabad hosted the playoffs.
A Guinness World Record was set at Narendra Modi Stadium for the largest attendance at a T20 match during the IPL 2022 final.
Every team in the IPL 2023 season will play 14 league matches, 7 at their home ground, and 7 at their opponent’s home ground (away).
