IPL’s mid-season transfer window: All you need to know | Cricket News

NEW DELHI: Some very talented players who haven’t got many chances in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) and are warming the benches, will have the opportunity to don a jersey of some other team.
With the introduction of the mid-season transfer window from last season, the fans will be able to see some of their favourite stars in action, but for other teams. This season the rules have changed slightly.
As all the teams have now played 7 matches each, the mid-season transfer window is open from Tuesday (October 13).
WHAT IS IPL’S MID-SEASON TRANSFER WINDOW?
The IPL teams can loan out Indian and overseas players under this rule. The rule from this season applies to both uncapped and capped players.
WINDOW:
The mid-season transfer window for IPL 2020 will be open for five days, starting Tuesday (October 13).
ELIGIBILITY:
According to the mid-season transfer rule, both capped and uncapped players, Indian and overseas will get the chance to find new teams, depending on mutually agreed upon loan fees etc.
CRITERIA:
As per the rules, the players who are being loaned should not have played more than two games. The loans will be executed as per the mutual understanding of the two teams. The IPL Governing Council will have to be notified for all such transfers.
IS THIS GOING TO BE A PERMANENT TRANSFER?
No. The transfer applies for the current season only. For example; if Chris Gayle is traded to Chennai Super Kings (CSK), as per the IPL 2020 mid-season transfer rules, the swashbuckling batsman will be playing for CSK for the 2020 season and will have to come back to Kings XI Punjab (his current team) in IPL 2021. These transfers are not permanent transfers. They are loans, based on mutually agreed upon loan fees and are applicable only for the rest of the current season.
THE BIG CATCH
As per the IPL 2020 mid-season transfer rules, a traded player cannot play against his parent team. For example, if Chris Gayle is traded to CSK, then he cannot play against KXIP in the return leg of this clash this season on November 1.
CHANCE FOR TEAMS TO REPLACE INJURED PLAYERS?
The 2020 season has seen a number of injuries. Ishant Sharma (DC), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (SRH), Mitchell Marsh (SRH), and Amit Mishra (DC) have already been ruled out of the cash-rich league due to injuries. The transfer window can also be helpful for teams who are looking for specific replacements for injured players, for whom replacements haven’t been announced yet, though this will need the permission of the IPL Governing Council. Most teams though might opt for the option to pick unsold players at their base price, after the Governing Council’s approval.
PLAYERS WHO CAN POTENTIALLY FIND NEW TAKERS
Delhi Capitals’ Ajinkya Rahane, Chennai Super Kings’ Imran Tahir, and Mumbai Indians’ Chris Lynn are three big names franchises may consider, among others.
Rahane has played just 1 game for DC out of 7 this season, while Tahir, who took 26 wickets for CSK last season and won the purple cap and Lynn haven’t featured in a single game in the tournament so far.
