It was recently that the IPL governing Council held its meeting to take certain important decisions concerning the upcoming Tata IPL 2023 season. This edition of the Indian Premier League would be the 16th edition. The tournament is decided to begin on 31st March 2023, and this long tournament will be extended to 28th May 2023. It has enhanced the amount of excitement that the fans of the Indian Premier League have been storing in themselves over the years.
Up till now, it has been decided that 70 matches would be played throughout the tournament. The participating 10 teams have been divided into two virtual groups based on past performance. There has been an addition of two important players, Lucknow supergiant and Gujarat Titans. The Indian Premier League model has completely revamped itself this Year.
TATA IPL 2023 Groups & Group Team List
So technically, there are two groups: group A and group B.
Group A comprises the team of Kolkata Knight Riders, Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals, Lucknow supergiant and Delhi capitals.
On the other hand, Group B comprises Royal Challengers Bangalore, Chennai Super Kings, Gujarat Titans, Punjab Kings and Sunrisers Hyderabad. So there would be a total of 4 playoffs altogether.
|IPL 2023 Group A||IPL 2023 Group B|
|Lucknow Super Giants (LSG)||Gujarat Titans (GT)|
|Delhi Capitals (DC)||Punjab Kings (PBKS)|
|Rajasthan Royals (RR)||Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)|
|Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR)||Chennai Super Kings (CSK)|
|Mumbai Indians (MI)||Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH)|
The teams have been arranged against each other to get to play one time against their respective group members. Each team will play two times against the respective group teams belonging to the same row in the second group. But concerning the remaining teams of the other group, each team will get to play only once against them. It can be said that, for instance, if Mumbai Indians play against its group A participants, then it will play twice. It will also play twice against Chennai Super Kings. But it will only play once against the other group B participants.
This means that there would be 10 teams that will play 14 fixtures each. So a team would be getting a chance to play with another 5 teams two times. But against the other four teams, it will get to play only once. This is a new rule that the board of Cricket Council has introduced in India to improve the game’s sanctity.
Last year in IPL 2022, At least 20 matches were scheduled to be played in Mumbai Wankhede stadium, and the remaining 15 are scheduled to be played in the Brabourne stadium. Twenty matches were about to be played in the DY Patil Stadium of Mumbai, and the remaining 15 in the MCA International Stadium of Pune but this year, we will see old Home and Away venue.
This season of the Indian Premier League is expected to be much more interesting than the previous seasons. It is expected that it would leave a great impact on all the players and even fans eagerly waiting for the fun of the live season.
