IPL 2022 Format and New Rules
The format for the IPL 2022 season is different from the last year. But, it is not new to the IPL community, as a similar format was being used in IPL 2011 as well, with 10 teams. Here are the details of the new format.
- The 10 teams are being divided into 2 groups, based on a random draw.
- Each team will play a total of 14 matches in the group stage. And the division of these matches is as follows.
- Each team will play the other 4 from the same group twice and once the four from the other group. Then, two times the remaining team from the other group.
- After the league stage, there will be a playoffs session that will include two qualifier games, one Eliminator round and a final at the end.
- For the points table, each winning team will be rewarded 2 points and no points will be given to the losing one.
IPL 2022 Playoffs Chances
As you know this 15th edition of the IPL is not done with the league stage yet and its top 4 teams are not declared, we can only make predictions of the best possible qualifiers for the playoffs. So, here’s our call.
Hardik-led Gujarat Lions top the IPL qualifier team 2022 list. They have lost only a single match out of all they’ve played yet. Their winning five include Hardik Pandy, David Miller, Rahul Tewatia, Rashid Khan and Shubhman Gill. Gujarat Lions surely have found the formula to the finals.
Royal Challengers Bangalore
Though the Challengers have never won their IPL title yet, they’ve made quite a number of appearances in the playoffs – 13 matches. And this season as well, they’re making their way to the IPL 2022 playoffs with a higher winning ratio.
There’s a tough competition between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Lucknow SuperGiants, as to who will be in the qualified 4. But, we see LSG a little ahead with their strong playing eleven under the captaincy of KL Rahul.
Delhi Capitals were in the top fours last season as well. And we see a potential for being in the playoffs this year as well. Under the captaincy of Rishabh Pant, the Capitals have the potential to win this season.
The fourth IPL qualifier team on our list is Punjab Kings. They’ve made good changes to the squad and now we see a strong batting line-up with the likes of Mayank Agarwal, SRK and Livingstone. Also, the presence of Kagiso Rabada makes the team even more powerful.
