Key decisions taken in IPL Governing Council meeting regarding TATA IPL 2022 Season

The IPL Governing Council at its meeting held yesterday made the following key decisions regarding the TATA IPL 2022 Season. The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League will be played in a bio-secure environment at a single hub to avoid air travel which is considered as a major threat for the spread of COVID-19 infection, thereby affecting the players and the League/matches.

The tournament will kickstart from 26th March, 2022 and the final will be played on 29th May, 2022.   

A total of 70 league matches will be played across four international standard venues in Mumbai and Pune. The venue for the playoff matches will be decided later.

Below is the breakdown of matches as per the venues:

 

Venue

Number of Matches

Mumbai - Wankhede Stadium

20 Matches

Mumbai - Brabourne Stadium (CCI)

15 Matches

Mumbai - DY Patil Stadium

20 Matches

Pune - MCA International Stadium

15 Matches

 

All teams will play:

4 matches each at Wankhede Stadium and DY Patil Stadium.

3 matches each at Brabourne Stadium (CCI) and MCA International Stadium, Pune.

The 10 teams will play a total of 14 league matches (7 home matches and 7 away matches) totalling to 70 league matches, followed by the 4 playoff matches. Each team will play 5 teams twice and the remaining 4 teams only once (2 only home and 2 only away).

To decide on the above, teams have been assigned in two virtual groups based on the number of IPL Championships won followed by the number of Final matches played by the respective teams.

The details of the teams having won the IPL Championships and number of times each of them has played a final match is listed below:
