This competition has also given rise to a few T20 leagues in some states of India. Tamil Nadu Premier League, Karnataka Premier League, Mumbai T20 League and Saurashtra Premier League have been successfully launched.


IPL History and Format


The Indian Premier League was initiated in the year 2008 by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). The inaugural edition saw 8 teams playing a double round robin league stage followed by the semi-finals and final.


The only change in the format is that the top four teams in the IPL 2020 points table play the ‘Playoffs’ that have replaced the traditional ‘semi-final and final’ knockouts.

What’s new in IPL 2020?


  1. Concussion substitutes
  2. Third-umpire checking front-foot no-balls
  3. All-Stars game


Undoubtedly, the decision to host IPL in UAE rather than in India is the biggest change we will be seeing in the tournament this year. Adding to it will be the safety measures and new rules with respect to the pandemic. The 2020 IPL will be challenging for everyone including the players, hosts and the viewers.


VIVO IPL 2020 will see a few new changes in the tournament. The world of international cricket has introduced ‘concussion substitutes’ during matches and the biggest T20 tournament in the world hasn’t held back this year either. For the first time in the history of the competition, there will be concussion substitutes in the IPL.


2019 IPL Final - Mumbai v Chennai


A trial of the third umpires checking the front-foot no-balls was conducted and it has been passed by the BCCI President Sourav Ganguly. He has announced that the thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League will have the third umpire check every ball for the front-foot no-ball to reduce the workload of the on-field umpires and use technology to the fullest.


There will also be an ‘All-Stars’ game three days before the inaugural match of IPL 2020. BCCI President, Sourav Ganguly, has announced that such a game will be played every year before the start of the tournament.
