IPL's First Ever Mid Season Transfer Window
All the 8 teams have played 7 match each and its time for IPL's mid season transfer window to open for 5 days. IPL Governing Council has brought this idea in this year's IPL. Franchise can loan players from other teams for rest of the season.
What is mid-season transfer window?
Franchises can loan out capped – both Indian and overseas – and uncapped players during this window. The loan process – expression of interest, paperwork etc. – has been applicable from October 7, but the window will be opened exactly at the halfway stage, when all teams have played seven matches each.
For how many days will the window be open?
If a player is traded to the franchise this season, will he be part of the traded franchise even for IPL 2021?
No, the player that is traded to the franchise this year plays only for that season. Next year, he is back to the parent franchise. For example, if Imran Tahir is picked up by Delhi Capitals in the IPL trade-off season in 2020, he will be back playing for Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2021.
Which players are available for transfer?
The IPL loan rules say: “Any player who has played (in XI or as concussion substitute) two or less than two matches.”
The lending franchise will get the mutually agreed amount between two franchises, which is not subject to a salary cap. Fifty per cent of the loan fee will have to be paid “within 7 days of registration” and the rest “within 7 days of the final match of the season”.
Will the loanee have any game restrictions?
Yes, the IPL rules bar him from playing against the lending franchise. It means that the loanee will have to sit out the return-leg fixture against his parent team.
