The 13th edition of the Indian Premier League has gotten off to a bang. Some franchises have certainly found the right combinations and are oozing with confidence while sitting towards the top end of the season, there are those too who still don’t know their best eleven. For those looking to strengthen their squad from within the IPL spectrum, an opportunity will come at the mid-way mark through the mid-season transfer window.
Mid-Season Transfer can work well for those players who haven’t had the opportunity to showcase their skills. For the untested talent, the mid-season transfers could be the perfect opportunity.
What is the mid-season Transfer in IPL 2020?
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) allows franchises to internally trade players from one team to another. Last season, the BCCI had allowed such transfers of un-capped players but no franchise utilised it. This season, the board extended the offer to capped players too. But with certain rules.
What are the rules and timing of mid-season transfer?
The player should not have played more than two matches when the transfer is taking place.
The transfer will only be applicable at the half-way mark in the league stage when the franchises have played 7 games each.
Which players are eligible for mid-season transfer as of now?
As the criteria goes, all those players who haven’t played more than two games are eligible for transfers. Some of the top names who could be transferred at the half-way mark are as follows:
