The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2014 goes back to the original format which has just eight teams, after Pune Warriors were eliminated from the competition. With each victory, the winner will be awarded with two points. Each team will be playing against each other twice in the round-robin games and the top four franchises qualify for the last four of the competition.
The teams getting knocked out of in the play-offs will get to qualify for the Champions League T20, which will happen later this year. The highest run-scorer is awarded with the Orange cap and the highest wicket-taker is handed the purple cap.
