IPL 2014 – Pepsi IPL T20

The Indian Premier League is unquestionably one of the most loved cricket events which is not only popular in India but is also cherished all across the globe. The Pepsi sponsored IPL would be celebrating its 7th successful season this time with the frenzy escalating with each passing year. The article here presents highlights on the major aspects of the Indian Premier League Championship.

The IPL 2014 would be played with 8 teams instead of 9. Pune Warriors has withdrawn from the tournament given legal disputes. The 8 participating teams this year are Mumbai Indians, Kolkata Knight Riders, Chennai Super Kings, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Rajasthan Royals, sunrisers Hyderabad, Delhi Daredevils and Kings XI Punjab.

Team captains

Mumbai Indians- Rohit Sharma
Kolkata Knight Riders- Gautam Gmabhir
Royal Challengers Bangalore- Virat Kohli
Chennai Super Kings- M.S. Dhoni
Rajasthan Royals- Shane Watson
Sunrisers Hyderabad- Shikhar Dhawan
Kings XI Punjab-George Bailey
Delhi Daredevils- Kevin Pieterson

The IPL 7 auction took place in February with Bangalore as the host city. Around 150 players (50 overseas) were sold this time. Among these around 66 cricketers are going to represent their previous squads. Yuvraj Singh was the highest bid player who was taken up by industrialist Vijay Mallya franchise Royal Challengers Bangalore at 14 crore INR. Amidst the foreign cricketers, it was English batsman Kevin Pietersen who fetched the optimum bid. The IPL 2014 auction brought some revolutionary changes in the existent auction system. For example- for the first time ever INR was used in the auction instead of USD. Moreover, a new rule called right To Match has also been introduced where the teams had the right to buy back their non-retained players- however, the number of players to be bought back depended on the number of cricketers retained

There was much speculation about IPL 2014 venues given the clash of dates with Indian Lok Sabha elections. After much discussion, it was decided that the 7th edition of the championship would be jointly hosted by UAE and India. The UAE leg of matches would be hosted at Abu Dhabi (Sheikh Zayed Cricket Stadium), Dubai (Dubai International Cricket Stadium) and Sharjah (Sharjah Cricket Association Stadium). In regards to India, the IPL 7 matches would be held across 10 venues.

The IPL 7 starts on April 16 with a match between Mumbai Indians & Kolkata Knight Riders, from 14:30 GM, at Sheikh Zayed Stadium, Abu Dhabi. There will be 20 matches in UAE up till April 30 at the same stadium. The Indian edition would start with Chennai Super Kings V Kolkata Knight Riders on May 2 at JSCA International Cricket Stadium. There would be 56 group matches and the last match of the group game schedule is on May 25, between Mumbai Indians and Rajasthan Royals, at Wankhede. The final IPL 7 match is on June 1.

The IPL 7 tickets for the first leg of the match is out online since April 3 and the stadiums would start offering tickets from April 10.

All the IPL teams have restructured themselves this time with the hope of making it big this year. Mumbai Indians would be striving hard to retain their winning title.
