Eight teams are scheduled to play in 2018. The tournament involves each team playing every other team twice in a home-and-away, double round-robin format. At the conclusion of the double round-robin league, the top four teams on the basis of aggregate points qualify for the playoffs. In this stage, the top two teams compete with each other (in a match titled “Qualifier 1”), as do the remaining two teams (in a match titled “Eliminator”). While the winner of Qualifier 1 directly qualifies for the final match, the losing team gets another chance to qualify for the final match by playing the winning team of the Eliminator match; this match is titled Qualifier 2. The winner of this subsequent Qualifier 2 match moves onto the final match. The team that wins the final match is crowned the Indian Premier League winners.The schedule for the tournament was published on 14 February 2018.

Ten venues were selected to host the matches. The opening match and the final will be played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The venues for two playoffs were not announced due to initially due to the norm of allotting the Eliminator and second qualifier to the home base of last season’s runner-up while Pune Team being no more part of the IPL.. Later, both playoffs were allotted to Pune.Except for Kings XI Punjab, all other teams will play their home games at their traditional home venues. Kings XI were scheduled to play three of their home games in Indore and the other four games in Mohali. But later schedule was changed due to logistical issues owing to the closure of Chandigarh Airport and would hence play three of their home games in Mohali and the other four games in Indore making exception to the rule of playing at least four home matches at their designated home venue .The decision to use the system in IPL2018 reportedly came after the board held a meeting in Visakhapatnam last December, where the top ten umpires from the domestic fold were briefed about the technology by Denis Burns, the ICC umpires’ coach and former Australia pacer-turned umpire Paul Reiffel. The decision is particularly noteworthy given the questionable standards of decision-making by the on-field umpires in the tenth season, leading to several dubious calls.BCCI’s stance on the DRS has been widely debated with the board arguing that unless the system in place was 100 percent foolproof, they would not favour it. The board’s major mistrust lay in the ball tracking technology wherein the path of the ball could be misleading. However in the later months with the HawkEye creating UltraEdge and increasing the frame rates per second, the Indian cricket board is said to have warmed up to the use of technology.
