The Indian Premier League is back this year with its fifteenth season!

Last year’s season was interrupted due to COVID-19 safety concerns, but was resumed later and turned out to be yet another exciting season.

Fans will be allowed to watch the match in the stadium. 25% occupancy will be maintained in order to observe COVID-19 safety protocols. Matches will take place in Mumbai, Navi Mumbai, and Pune. The final match is scheduled for the 29th of May.

What’s New?

IPL 2022 has ten teams, two more than last year. Which are these?

  • Gujarat Titans (Captain: Hardik Pandya)
  • Lucknow Super Giants (Captain: KL Rahul)

Auctions took place in February, and the teams are now all set to compete against each other for the coveted trophy and honour. 

Other Teams to Look Out For

  • Mumbai Indians (MI): The Mumbai Indians have the maximum number of IPL wins out of all the competing teams. There have been some crucial changes in the squad this time. For example, Hardik Pandya has moved to the Gujarat Titans, where he is also the captain.
  • Chennai Super Kings (CSK): The Chennai Super Kings too have been a formidable team for many years now. They have the second-most number of wins out of the competing teams. This team is also the 2021 winner. India’s former captain MS Dhoni is also in this team.
  • Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR): This team has the third-most number of wins out of all the competing teams. The team also has Shreyas Iyer as its new captain this year. The 2021 final was played between KKR and CSK, with both teams putting up an impressive fight.

Are you excited? We surely are! Tata IPL 2022 will be streamed live on Disney + Hotstar and broadcast live on the Star Sports Network. Stay tuned for weekly updates from Tinkle!
