INDIAN PREMIER LEAGUE 2022
Chennai Super Kings won the 2021 IPL and will play the first game of the 2022 IPL Cricket against last season's runners-up Kolkata Knight Riders. For the first time since its inception in 2008, teams were split into two virtual groups during the IPL competition phase, which could have far-reaching implications for IPL results.
The 70 matches of the 2022 IPL Cricket competition phase were played at four venues in Mumbai and Pune. Over the years, the competitive phase of the IPL has always been played in a home-away format, with each team playing the same opponent twice, but there was a change in the 15th edition.
The number of teams in IPL 2022 was increased to 10 with the addition of two new franchises - Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants, but the number of games per team remained at 14. The 10 teams played a total of 14 league games out of 70 league games. Games followed by the 4 playoff games. Each team played twice against 5 teams and the remaining 4 teams only once.
To decide this, teams were assigned to two virtual groups based on the number of IPL championships won, followed by the number of finals contested by each team. At IPL 2022, Group A consists of Mumbai Indians, KKR, Rajasthan Royals, Delhi Capitals, and Lucknow Super Giants. Group B has Chennai Super Kings, SunRrisers Hyderabad, Royal Challengers Bengaluru, Punjab Kings, and Gujarat Titans.
Each team played twice with the teams in their group and with the team in the same row of the second group. They only play once a season with the other teams in the second group.
The Gujarat Titans won the IPL trophy on their debut
A new team and a new captain gave their all at the 2022 IPL Cricket. The newcomers lost just four of their 16 games en route to the title, the fewest losses in a season after the Rajasthan Royals' three inaugural champions in 2008. Hardik Pandya, who had previously won four titles with the Mumbai Indians, lifted the trophy in his first season as captain - his record now stands at five wins in five IPL finals.
