What is IPL?

IPL, Indian Premier League is now coming back for its season 11, after ten marvellous, successful and thrilling seasons which were organised by BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) since 2008.

Even from the season one, IPL became the most loved cricket league in the world, and now also, it is maintaining its stardom whether it could be related to money spent, player’s performance, brand value, and audience attendance on the field or in front of the TV.

Many leagues started after IPL, but no one can even compete with the level and excitement IPL provides, with some new and star players to the international teams every year. These are the main reasons I think, why IPL is still maintaining the number one position among all the cricket league in the world including CPL, BBL, BPL, PPL, etc.

All Past Ten IPL seasons, Best Performer And The Champions:-

Before we move in 2018 edition of the IPL, first we want to let you know, how successful were those years, who were those last ten winners, runner-up’s, who was the most valuable player, who were the best performers with the bat and bowl.

So, keep your eyes excited, and fingers to scroll down to get to know about all past IPL seasons:-

IPL - 1

It was the year 2008 when BCCI launched IPL’s first edition which was played from 18th April to 1st of June 2008 in India.

Total of eight teams played in the season, out of which four made into the semi-finals, while Rajasthan Royals and Chennai Super Kings booked their spot in the final which was held on 1st June 2008.

In the reply of Chennai’s 163/5, Rajasthan Royals scored 164/7 and won the match by three wickets.

Mahendra Singh Dhoni was the most valuable player of the tournament was brought to Chennai Super Kings for $ 1.5 million.

While Shane Watson (RR) was the most successful player of the tournament with 472 runs scored with the bowl and hunted 17 batsmen.

But, most runs were scored by Shaun Marsh (KXIP) – 616 with the highest score of 115.

While most wickets were taken by Sohail Tanvir (RR) – 22 with the best figure 6/14.

IPL - 2

Later, after the first successful season, IPL franchise organised their second edition in the consecutive year, i.e. 2009 in South Africa, from 18 April to 24th May 2009.

Same eight teams from the last season registered their name of IPL 2, out of which Royal Challengers Bangalore booked their spot in the final with Deccan Chargers.

And it was Adam Gilchrist’s (who was the best player of the tournament with 495 runs and 18 removals), Deccan Chargers who claimed their first title with a narrow margin win (just by six runs.)

In this season, most runs were scored by Matthew Hayden from Chennai Super Kings, (572 runs with the best score 89), while purple cap, the most wicket taken by R.P. Singh (23 wickets in just 16 matches.) with the best performance 4/22 against Kolkata Knight Riders.

IPL - 3

Indian Premier League again came back to India to thrill the local audience yet again with some huge sixes, overwhelming deliveries, impossible catches and run-outs.

In the 2010 season, where Chennai Super Kings won their first title by beating Mumbai Indians by 22 runs.



Sachin Tendulkar apart from claiming the player of the series title, he was the orange cap holder with the highest runs in the tournament with 618 runs.

While the purple cap went to 21 wicket-taker, Pragyan Ojha.

IPL - 4

In the year 2011, BCCI continued the fourth season of Indian Premier League, from 8 April to 28 May. But this time, two new teams registered their name in the race of the title, one was Pune Warriors, and Kochi Tuskers Kerala was the second one.

But none of the team would affect the captaincy and plans MS Dhoni had. Yeah, one of the most successful captains in the world guided CSK to their second consecutive title, while RCB again lost in the final by 58 runs.

In this season, Chris Gayle from Royal Challengers Bangalore won the player of the series award as well scored most runs in the entire tournament. (608 runs, 8 wickets.)

While Purple cap went to the Yorker King, Lasith Malinga with 28 wickets (5/13 was the best performance against Delhi Daredevils.)

IPL - 5

Out of those two teams Kerala’s Tuskers took their name out after their first and unsuccessful season, while Kolkata Knight Riders claimed their maiden title in 2012 where they won over two times champions CSK by five wickets. They achieved the target of 190 with one over left.

Yet again, it was Chris Gayle who scored most runs (733) in the tournament, and Morne Morkel from Delhi Daredevils who claimed most number of wickets, 25.

IPL - 6

Again it was India who hosted the 2013 year’s season, where once again Chennai Super Kings booked their spot in the finals, but this time, Indian Premier League got their another new winner, and it was Mumbai Indians, who defended not so good score 148/9 and won the deciding match by 23 runs.



This season went too good for Michael Hussey who score most runs (733) in the sixth season of the league. And the most wickets (32) were also in the accounts of CSK’s Dwayne Bravo.

IPL - 7

This time United Arab Emirates was the joint host with India for the 2014 edition of the Indian Premier League.

Eight teams participated, after the withdrawal of Pune Warriors because of their three unsuccessful seasons in the row. While Deccan Charges also changed into Sunrises Hyderabad.

First ever time, Kings XI Punjab entered into the final, but it was again Kolkata Knight Riders who claimed their second title in 2014.

Robin Uthappa was the orange cap holder (Most runs – 660), while purple cap went in the account of Mohit Sharma (Most wickets – 23.)

IPL - 8

After CSK, and KKR, now it was Mumbai Indians who claimed their second title in 2015 season.

It was all time top teams, CSK vs MI, who fought in the final once again, and that time also, it was Mumbai, who won the match by 41 runs.

Apart from Andre Russell (KKR) who claimed the player of the season award because of his all-around performance. While purple and orange caps were offered to Dwayne Bravo (CSK, 26 wickets), and David Warner (SRH, 562 runs) respectively.

IPL - 9

Because of the spot-fixing, and betting scandals, Chennai Super Kings, and Rajasthan Royals were suspended for next two seasons, while Gujarat Lions and Rising Pune Supergiant registered their name for next two seasons.



Where even after Virat Kohli’s amazing performance in the entire tournament (973 runs, highest in the history of IPL by any player in a single season), which made him the player of the series and earned him, his first orange cap of the IPL, but unfortunately, it was the David Warner’s Sunrisers Hyderabad who claimed their first title, because of the Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s good line and length bowling which made him the purple cap holder of IPL season nine (23 Wickets.)

IPL - 10

2017 season of the IPL where Mumbai Indians became the only team to claim the title, third time in the history of Indian Premier League.

This final was the most thrilled final ever played, where Mumbai Indians crushed all the challenges provided by Rising Pune Supergiant and won the tournament by just one run. They successfully defended the minor target of 130 runs in twenty overs.

David Warner was the orange cap holder with 641 runs, while Purple cap went in the account of Bhuvneshwar Kumar (26 wickets) which was the second of him. While the most valuable player of the tournament, Ben Stokes was chosen the player of the series because of his all-around performance (318 runs, 12 wickets.)



That’s it. We tried to include a little bit, but all the important information you should know about previous IPL seasons. Their star players, most valuable players and many records which were being made and broken from past ten seasons of Indian Premier League.

But, everyone knows, the legacy continues to grow. That’s why, we are here, yet again for the record 11th season of IPL in 2018, which is set to organise by BCCI from 4 April to 27 May 2018. And after the two-year dismissal, Chennai Super Kings, and Rajasthan Royals are back in the league at the place of Gujarat Lions, and Rising Pune Supergiants.



Today, Indian Premier League is the largest cricket league in the world, and the amount in which Start Sports bought the media rights is the proof it. Star family paid ₹ 16,347.5 crore which is almost equal to 2.55 billion dollars, for telecasting all the matches, auctions and lots of much-needed event to show their audience.

Below, in this article, we discussed lots of important facts, and almost everything you need to know about, Indian Premier League 2018:-

IPL 2018 Playing Format

Total of eight teams are playing in the IPL 2018 whose names we listed in the below section. Each of them will play one home and away game against the rest of the teams and finally after all the league matches, top four teams in the table will move ahead in the knockout stage. (League Match Point Distribution: Win-2, Loss-0, Cancelled-1.)

NOTE - No match will be tied, even if both teams will be able to make the same score in 20 overs of the game. The result will be declared on the basis of an extra over which is also called Super Over. And we all have witnessed those most thrilled super overs in the history of IPL.



While in the knockout stage, two top teams on the points table will play against each other in the Qualifier 1.

IPL 2018 Retention – Complete Policy

How The Player Can Be Retained - The head committee of Indian Premier League planned a specific strategy to make the selectors of each team bite their own fingers. They allowed all the teams to retain maximum of five players from their past squad.



Out of those fives, maximum of three players could be retained before the auction, and the remaining (maximum three) were allowed to recall through the right-to-match card at the auction itself.

What is Right to Match (RTM) card?
By placing the same bid which was offered by another team to a player, his previous team is allowed to retain him through RTM. For eg – If R. Ashwin would not be on the list of those starting three players CSK is going to retain, and in the auction, KKR bid 6 crores to buy him. Then at exactly this price, CSK can use RTM and get Ashwin back into their team.

In details, we should tell you that a team can either retain two or three players initially and later they can use three or two RTMs at auction, which means if a team will confirm two players before then they can allow using three RTMs. But, neither of them would include more than three players, nor they use more than three RTMs.

Out of all these three retained players, every team had another rule to follow in that thoughtful auction. They could only retain maximum three players who have played for India at international level, maximum two international players, and two domestic Indian players.

But, there was another mystery in the auction, How Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will retain the players when they were absent from last two seasons?

There was another rule to follow for them, they could retain the players who should be their part in the previous season they played, i.e. 2015, and who should be played from either RPS or GL in IPL 2017.

Like, CSK can retain Suresh Raina because he was played form their side in 2015 season, and also he was the part of GL.

What Will Be The Budget Policy - Apart from these complex rules of getting your players back, IPL franchises were allowed to spend only specific amount in the retention procedure and auction.



Every team was allowed to spend 80 crores in the entire procedure, out of which they can spend maximum 33 crores in the retention procedure of IPL 11 if they have decided to keep their three players.

Out of those 33 crores, they will have to pay 15, 11, and 7 crores to their first, second, and third player respectively who will be retained by their previous teams.

But if a team is only wishing to keep their two players, then it was allowed to offer 12.5, and 8.5 crores to their first and second player respectively.

If only a single player is retained by a team, then he will be contracted for 12.5 crores for Indian Premier League 2018, and this amount will reduce to just 3 crores if an uncapped player will be retained by any franchise of IPL 11.

So, till 4 January 2018, when retaining window for all the IPL teams went closed, they have decided who to retain, and who to throw in the auction pool.

List of Players Retained In IPL 2018

Team Players Amount (In Crores)
Chennai Super Kings MS Dhoni 15
Suresh Raina 11
Ravindra Jadeja 7
Delhi Daredevils Rishabh Pant 8
Chris Morris 7.1
Shreyas Iyer 7
Kings XI Punjab Axar Patel 6.75
Kolkata Knight Riders Sunil Narine 8.5
Andre Russell 7
Mumbai Indians Rohit Sharma 15
Hardik Pandya 11
Jasprit Bumrah 7
Rajasthan Royals Steve Smith 12
Royal Challengers Bangalore Virat Kohli 17
AB de Villiers 11
Sarfaraz Khan 1.75
Sunrisers Hyderabad David Warner 12
Bhuvneshwar Kumar 8.5

Whether a team spends their entire fixed money on a single player, or not, but the deduction will be as per rules. Like Kings XI Punjab bought Axar Patel for 6.75 crores but their deduction will be 12.5 from 80 crores, i.e. they were only allowed to spend 67.5 crores in the auction.

After the players retained by each team, here is the list of amount remained in their remains and numbers of RTM they are going to use in the auction pool:-

Team Budget Remain (In Crores) RTM Available
Chennai Super Kings 47 2
Delhi Daredevils 47 2
Kings XI Punjab 67.5 3
Kolkata Knight Riders 59 3
Mumbai Indians 47 2
Rajasthan Royals 67.5 3
Royal Challengers Bangalore 49 2
Sunrisers Hyderabad 59 3

So, with the above budget, and the Right-to-Match cards, all the teams went into the auction war, and some more than interesting facts, some unbelievable bids, and surprised contracts were offered to many players, are discussed below.

IPL 2018 Auction - Rules and Regulations

Out of 1000+ players signed for IPL 11, the total of 578 players including 360 Indians went through the auction procedure to make a mark in the Indian Premier League 2018. Bids were placed, sometimes higher, and sometimes ever stars remained unsold in the two-day mega-auction held on 27 and 28 January 2018 in Bengaluru.



We, PlayersTome brought you all the seconds which were spent to remain in the memories of the biggest cricket auction in the history.

Eight teams with their financial adviser, their team coach and guides sat to choose the best out of 578. They knew their needs, their strategy to compete in the league and make it a bit tough for other teams.

While they needed to keep something their mind, which was the price they need to offer. Yes, IPL council set a bit higher price for every category, which we are explaining below:-

  • Every team can have maximum of 25 players, out of which eight can be overseas.
  • If a player who doesn’t play at an International level, got 10 lakh in the previous season, then he will get minimum 20 lakh this season. Similarly, if he was offered 20 or 30 lakhs in last IPL, then he will get 30, and 40 Lakhs respectively.
  • While an international level player will get a price with the 20 lakh increment from the former edition of Indian Premier League in only lakhs. If he got 1 crore last year, then his will start from one crore itself.
