IPL 2018 – What’s New This Year?
Before the start of new IPL T20 season, these are the few notable changes in policies and rules for every team for playing in IPL 11.
With IPL 2018 fixture being only tentative, we can only wait for BCCI to release the official IPL 2018 schedule. This year’s IPL is little different because several things are going to happen for the first time in the IPL’s history.
Let’s see some of the interesting things that are happening and are expected to happen in IPL 2018.
1. CSK & RR – Favourite Teams Are Back
The two suspended teams are back to play this year’s IPL 2018.
- One is everyone’s favourite, Chennai Super Kings.
- Other is the surprising winner of 1st IPL season, Rajasthan Royals
CSK, as the team is fondly called, is one of the strongest teams in the IPL & has the record of reaching the finals multiple times.
These two teams will be trying hard to prove themselves. It surely will add more excitement to this IPL 2018 season.
Note: As a result, Rising Pune Supergiant’s and Gujarat Lions will not be part of the IPL 2018 New teams.
2. IPL Schedule – Game Start Time
The IPL 2018 council is also keen to bring out some other changes as it is learnt that BCCI is planning to change the timing of the matches.

But the IPL Governing Council has planned to start the matches by 7 PM. But this could happen only after the approval of broadcasters – Star Sports.
3. IPL Team Squad Size Of each Franchise
A team can have a maximum of 25 players with a limit of 8 foreign players and the minimum number of players in the team should be 18.
