This will be the 16th edition of the Indian Premier League which shows it came a long way and with each passing year, it is getting bigger and bigger interms of viewership & broadcasting revenues. This year BCCI launched WPL (Women’s Premier League) as well which will be played in March before the start of TATA IPL 2023. Since IPL 16 is only a few months away, we have answered some of the top questions which are currently trending and being asked by passionate cricket fans like yourself in detail below.
How many points to Qualify for IPL 2023
The top four teams in the points table at the end of the group stage qualify for the playoffs. Generally, 16 points are considered the benchmark which makes it nearly 95% certain a team will qualify for the playoffs. A team with 18 points in the group stage is confirmed as the top team to play in Qualifier 1 to have a chance to make a straight entry into the IPL 2023 Final.
How many matches will each team play in IPL 2023
For IPL 2023, BCCI has divided the teams into two different groups with five teams each which are Group A & Group B. The groupings have been done according to the previous performances of franchises in the last 15 seasons of IPL.
Each team in IPL 2023 is scheduled to play 14 group matches which will be played in the format mentioned below.
- Each team plays the other team in their group twice in a double round-robin format which makes it 8 matches.
- The remaining six matches are to be played against the five teams in the other group.
- A team from Group A vs Group B will play two matches against each other which will be decided as per equivalent performances in the last 15 seasons. For example, the top team in Group A will go against the top team in Group B twice. An example would be Mumbai Indians in Group A with 5 titles while Chennai Super Kings in Group B with 4 titles and so on.
BCCI has divided the teams into two groups to minimize the league stage matches because if all teams were placed in a single group and played as per double round-robin format then each franchise had to play 18 matches which would mean IPL could go on for three months in already busy international and domestic leagues calendar.
