IPL 2022 Format and Matches Explained:

As per the new format, each team will play twice with the teams of its group and twice with the team in the same row. While once with the other four teams left in another group.

Let’s understand this with the example of MI. Mumbai will play two matches each with KKR, RR, DC and LSG. Also, MI will play two matches with CSK, which is in the same row as Mumbai. This is how 10 matches will be completed of a team. 

Mumbai will then play its next four matches with the remaining teams of Group B i.e., RCB, SRH, PBKS and GT. In this way, Mumbai will complete its 14 league stage games.
