The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 will get underway from March 31, 2023. It will be the 16th edition of the lucrative tournament and will be played in its original home and away format. 

This will be the first time since 2019 that IPL will return to its original format. During the Covid 19 pandemic, the IPL was staged in UAE in 2021 and 2021 while Mumbai played host to the 2022 edition. 

Each franchise will play seven home and as many away games. The two-month long tournament will stage 70-league stage matches which will be played across 12 venues, which includes Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chennai, Lucknow, Mohali, Hyderabad, Delhi, Kolkata, Jaipur, Mumbai, Guwahati and Dharamshala. 

Gujarat Titans will put their title on defence in the 10-franchise tournament after a dream start to their maiden season. 

In the last edition, the debutant franchise defeated Rajasthan Royals in the final to emerge victorious while Royal Challengers Bangalore were knocked out in the Qualifier 2 and Lucknow Super Giants lost in the Eliminator. 

IPL record champions Mumbai Indians had an underwhelming season as they finished with a wooden spoon while Delhi Capitals (5th), Punjab Kings (6th), Kolkata Knight Riders (7th), Sunrisers Hyderabad (8th), Chennai Super Kings (9th) failed to make it to the playoffs.

IPL 2023 Rules & Format


The 10 franchises – Gujarat Titans, Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders, Lucknow Super Giants, Chennai Super Kings, Delhi Capitals, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Punjab Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore – will be divided into two groups. 

Each franchise will play two matches against the teams from the opposite group and one against the teams in the same group. 

Group A: Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders, Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Super Giants.

Group B: Chennai Super Kings, Punjab Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Gujarat Titans.

In a first, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has introduced a Decision Review System (DRS) for wide and no-balls. 

The parent board for the lucrative tournament have also brought in the Impact Player Rule, where each franchise has to name four substitutes from their squad apart from the playing XI during the toss. 

A franchise can choose one substitute place, who has to be an Indian, to be replaced with one member from the playing XI. 

The lucrative tournament will witness its 1000th match played in this edition. The match between the most successful franchises in the tournament Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings on May 6 will mark the significant milestone. However, both the franchises will first face off in this edition on April 8.
