IPL 2018 is all set for a big transformation in its system. For the first time since the inception of IPL, there will be a mid-season transfer of the different franchise players.
Cricket has never seen something like this in its history and the inspiration has been taken from Football. In the popular Football leagues like EPL and La Liga, the players have been transferred
The transfer window is open between April 29 and May 10 and everything will happen in this period only. Cricketers like Rohit Sharma and Mahela Jayawardene have supported the idea.
There are a few rules which will be kept in mind to follow the process-
1. Starting from April 29, the process will happen until May 10 only.
2. Uncapped and capped players both can be transferred from one team to another. However, only those capped players can be transferred who have played two or fewer matches till the mid-IPL.
3. The terms can be negotiated by the teams involved and they can pick the players they want.
Some of the players that can be selected for transfer are Moeen Ali (Royal Challengers Bangalore), JP Duminy (Mumbai Indians), Alex Hales (Sunrisers Hyderabad), Ish Sodhi (Rajasthan Royals) and Sandeep Lamichhane (Delhi Daredevils).
These players have been uncapped or either played very less in the IPL so far.
