When does IPL 2020 mid-season transfer window start?

The IPL 2020 mid-season transfer window will commence at the half-way mark in the lucrative T20 tournament – when all the franchises have completed seven matches each. It can be compared to the January transfer window when it comes to football with teams looking to find players from the other teams who can be of use in the latter part of the tournament.

What is the purpose behind IPL 2020 mid-season transfer window?

The mid-season transfer window of IPL also provides an opportunity for players to find suitors where they will be able to find their best form rather than warming the bench of their current franchise. This window gives a solid opportunity for teams to prepare another plan which may not have been in their minds when they were at the auction table or during the start of the tournament.

However, the final decision lies with the franchise as a mutual consent needs to be struck before players can stay or move.

Eligibility criteria for IPL 2020 mid-season transfer window

In IPL 2019, the tournament witnessed a five-day window for uncapped players for loan purposes given that the player in question hasn’t played more than two matches in the season. However, in IPL 2020, IPL has allowed loans of capped players as well, both Indian and overseas, keeping the injury concerns in mind.
