Chennai will host the tournament opener, in which defending champions Mumbai Indians will face Royal Challengers Bangalore. The playoffs and the final will be held at the Motera in Ahmedabad.

Each franchise will play at four out of the six venues during the league phase, which includes 56 games. Chennai, Mumbai, Bangalore and Kolkata will host 10 games each, while Delhi and Ahmedabad will host eight each.

The first 36 league matches will be split across Chennai, Ahmedabad, Mumbai and Delhi, while the next 20 will be played in Bangalore and Kolkata in May -- this is because elections in West Bengal will be held late March to late April, while, in Bangalore, it is understood that the floodlights at the M Chinnaswamy Stadium are being replaced.

The inaugural season of the tournament started on 18 April 2008 and lasted for 45 days with 59 matches scheduled, out of which 58 took place and one was washed out due to rain.

SECOND IPL IN 2009:

The second season in 2009 coincided with the general elections in India. Owing to concerns regarding players’ security, the venue was shifted to South Africa. The format of the tournament remained the same as the inaugural one. Deccan Chargers, who finished last in the first season, were big underdogs but came out as eventual winners defeating the Royal Challengers Bangalore by six runs in the final at Johannesburg on May 24, 2009.

As many as 16180 runs were scored for the loss of 698 wickets at 23.18 off 2185.4 overs at an economy rate of 7.40 runs per over in 57 matches.

THIRD IPL IN 2010:

The third season was played in India from March 12 to April 25, 2010. Deccan Chargers did not play at their preferred home location of Hyderabad, due to the ongoing political crisis in the Telangana region. The new bases for the champions this season were Nagpur, Navi Mumbai and Cuttack. The final was played between Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai Indians at Mumbai.

Chennai Super Kings won by a margin of 22 runs.

A record number of 18864 runs were scored for the loss of 720 wickets at 26.20 off 2319.5 at an economy rate of 8.13 per over in 60 matches.

FOURTH IPL IN 2011:

With the introduction of 2 new teams, a new 10-team format was created in the fourth edition last year. This new format consists of 74 matches and was introduced as retaining the previous format would result in 94 matches, significantly greater than the 60 matches from the previous season, where teams compete in a double round-robin tournament. The knockout stage was changed to a play-off format. If a match ends in a tie, a Super Over will be played to determine the winner.

Chennai Super Kings retain the title by beating Royal Challengers Bangalore by 58 runs in the final at Chennai.

colours of the team, but for the Hyderabad cricket fans their city’s IPL outfit will have a striking resemblance to their old team - Deccan Chargers. For the 2013 season, the change of owners means that the team will be called the Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, the core of the team remains the same and there have been reinforcements that could only strengthen the team.
