What is the Indian Premier League? 

There is no more popular and important cricket tournament in the world than the Indian Premier League (IPL). The matches of this league are watched by people from different countries. In India, cricket is considered not just a national sport — it is perceived as something like a religion. A lot of money and effort is invested in its development. 

In 2010, the IPL became the first sporting event in the world to be broadcast live on YouTube. The value of the league’s brand is estimated at several billion dollars. The 2020 IPL season set a viewership record with an average of 31.57 million impressions and an overall consumption increase of 23 per cent compared to the 2019 season. 

The first season of the IPL was held in 2008. In its first version, eight teams were participating, and now there are ten. We will talk about this in more detail below.

IPL Auction 2022 

IPL Auction 2022 

Traditionally, the IPL Mega-auction has become a prelude to the new season of the best cricket league in India. It was hosted by Bangalore on February 12 and 13. A total of 600 players (377 Indian and 223 foreign) were put up for auction. 10 names were added on the eve of the event, and the original list included 1214 players. 

At the time of the auction, 10 IPL teams had 217 slots open for players. During the two days of the event, they filled 204 such slots. The youngest participant in the auction was 17-year-old Nur Ahmad from Afghanistan, and the oldest (43 years old) was Imran Tahir. Mumbai Indians purchased Ishan Kishan for ₹15.25 crore, and it was the most expensive purchase of an Indian player in the auction. The most expensive foreign player was Ian Livingstone (₹11.50 crore). The rights to it were bought by the Punjab Kings team.

Teams of the IPL in 2022 

Before the 15th season of the Indian Premier League, the number of its participants increased from 8 to 10. It included new clubs Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans. A special draft was held to form their rosters. On November 30, 2021, eight existing IPL teams named the lists of players they want to keep in their squad (it had to be up to four people, and, of them, a maximum of 3 Indian players or 2 foreigners). Those players who were not included in the lists became available to Lucknow Super Giants and Gujarat Titans for selection in their rosters. On January 22, 2022, these teams named the players: 

Lucknow Super Giants: 

  • Ravi Bishnoi (India);
  • KL Rahul (India);
  • Marcus Stoinis (Australia). 

Gujarat Titans:

  • Shubman Gill (India);
  • Rashid Khan (Afghanistan);
  • Hardik Pandya (India). 

Interestingly, Hardik Pandya was recognized as the best player of the 2022 IPL finals, so we can already say that the choice of Gujarat Titans was correct. 

Following the results of the draft and the auction of the IPL 2022, the participants formed their rosters, and the IPL 2022 Team List became known: 

  • Chennai Super Kings (B);
  • Delhi Capitals (A);

2022 IPL Playing Format 

Since the creation of the Indian Premier League, its participants have played in a round-robin format. However, now the matches are held according to a different system. 10 teams are divided into two groups. Each club plays two matches with each opponent from its quintet, one with four teams from the second group, and plays twice with the fifth team from there. 

A similar group format was used in 2011, but then the composition of the groups was formed according to the seeding, and not in random order.
