“The full schedule of IPL 2022 will be released in next 48 hours. BCCI has got all assurances & support from the Maharashtra government to conduct the IPL Season 15 as smoothly as it can get”, said BCCI Treasurer Arun Dhumal.

As per groupings released by BCCI on Friday, group A comprises Mumbai Indians, KKR, Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals and Lucknow Supergiants.

The group B will have Chennai Super Kings, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bengaluru, Punjab Kings and Gujarat Titans. Over the years, the IPL has been an eight-team affair where each team played each other twice at the round robin league stage to complete 14 games.

However this group league format is not new in IPL as it was once used a decade back when Pune Warriors and Kochi Tuskers Kerala were part of the league. The rows and columns of the groups (A and B) has been done as per IPL performances — number of titles and number of finals reached.
