IPL 2021 tournament Format

There will be no increase in the team playing for IPL 2021 and each team will be playing 2 matches with each other, in total 58 matches will be played and the top 4 teams on the points table will go for the final eliminator round. The top 2 teams will play with each other and the team winning will reach the final of IPL 2021 and the losing team will play with the winners of matches between 3 and 4.

Player Acquisition

Some of the team composition rules (as of 2020 season) are as follows:

  • The squad strength must be between 18 and 25 players, with a maximum of 8 overseas players.
  • The salary of the entire squad must not exceed ₹850 million
  • A team can play a maximum of 4 overseas players in their playing eleven
  • Under-19 players cannot be picked unless they have previously played first-class or List A cricket.

Match Rules

IPL games utilise television timeouts and hence there is no time limit in which teams must complete their innings. However, a penalty may be imposed if the umpires find teams misusing this privilege. Each team is given a two-and-a-half-minute “strategic timeout” during each innings; one must be taken by the bowling team between the ends of the 6th and 9th overs, and one by the batting team between the ends of the 13th and 16th overs.

Since the 2018 season, the Umpire Decision Review System is being used in all IPL matches, allowing each team one chance to review an on-field umpire’s decision per innings.

Prize Money

The 2019 season of the IPL offered a total prize money of ₹500 million (US$7.0 million), with the winning team netting ₹200 million (US$2.8 million). The first and second runners up received ₹125 million (US$1.8 million) and ₹87.5 million (US$1.2 million), respectively, with the fourth placed team also winning ₹87.5 million (US$1.2 million). The other teams are not awarded any prize money. The IPL rules mandate that half of the prize money must be distributed among the players.
