The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020 got underway in the UAE on September 19 and we have reached the end of the mid-season of the tournament with the completion of 28 league matches. IPL 2020 has been lightened by many thrilling performances over the last 28 matches. However, with more than half of the cash-rich T20 tournament remaining, teams will now be looking to plug up any leaks in their rosters.
IPL 2020 mid-season transfers: When does it start and duration?
According to the rules laid by BCCI, all teams needed to have played 7 IPL 2020 games for the mid-season transfer to open. And as the game in Sharjah between RCB and KKR was the seventh for both the sides and it meant every franchise has played 7 games in the season.
Last season, a five-day window was created for trading uncapped players. However, none of the franchises decided to utilize it. A similar window also opens this season from Tuesday as well and will be open for five days.
IPL 2020 mid-season transfers: Players eligibility
Only those players who have featured in two or fewer games are available for the mid-Season transfer window. Anyone who has played more than 2 matches for the franchise this season can’t be transferred or loaned to others.
There should be mutual consent between the franchises while moving the players. By now, all teams have figured out their marquee players. The decision lies with the franchise; they need to identify players they want to keep/release. This is a half-a-season arrangement and the loanee returns to his parent team next season.
IPL 2020: Fees of the players
If teams were to loan players, the arrangement would be between the franchises, with the money paid from outside the auction purse. The player will be entitled to his fixed auction price and won't benefit from such a transfer. The IPL, however, will be notified about the transaction. Although the loanee cannot play against his parent franchise, according to the IPL rules.
