Frequently Asked Questions
How many teams may I enter?
You will only be able to enter one team for each account. However there is no limit to the number of different accounts you can create, entering a team through each of them.
How many transfers are available to me?
Between the start of scoring and the end of the Group phase of the tournament, users are allowed to make up to 80 transfers in total.
Between the Group phase and the first Qualifier, on May 24, users can again make unlimited transfers to their team.
Between the first Qualifier and the Final, users can make up to eight transfers to their team.
Please note that a transfer has to have been registered in our database prior to the transfer deadline in a round in order to count towards the following round.
Transfers made up to thirty minutes after the start of a match, will be active for that match.
What is a Power Player?
Once you have selected your team, you must select a Power Player! Your Power Player will score double points (including negative points), and could be the difference between success and failure, so choose carefully!
You can change your Power Player at any time. Changes must be made ahead of the scheduled start of each match to take effect for the upcoming match.
What is the deadline for making changes?
Transfers must be confirmed by no later than thirty minutes after the scheduled start time of a match in order to be active for that match.
A breakdown of the transfer deadlines can be found at the bottom of the Rules page.
What happens if a match is cancelled or postponed?
In the event that a match starts, but does not finish (ie if a 'No Result' is declared), all players will score zero points for that match.
If a match is decided by the Duckworth-Lewis method, all players will score points earned during the match, however long it may be.
If either of the Qualifiers or the Eliminator is washed out completely, the team which placed higher in the Group Stage, will progress.
The Final of the IPL has a reserve day of 30th May 2016. If this is used, you will be able to make additional transfers (if you have any remaining!) to your team between the scheduled start date (29th May), and the reserve day. All players will score points as usual.
What happens if a match goes to a Super Over?
In the event of a Super Over, all players will earn points for actions during the Super Over. There is one exception to this: Super Over actions do not contribute to economy rates and strike rates.
Why can't I view other teams?
You will be able to see your rivals' teams once scoring for the game begins on Monday 18th April at 20:00 IST. This is to keep your team a secret up until the first match. Throughout the tournament you will be able to view rival teams, but you will not be able to see upcoming transfers to their team.
How do I set up a Mini-League?
The person setting up the Mini League will be the Chairman of that league. As Chairman, you must first register your own team and then:
Click on 'Mini Leagues' from the menu and choose 'Join/Create Mini League'.
Choose a name for your Mini League. If you wish the Mini League to be private you may also add a password.
Use the 'Invite' facility to email your friends and colleagues and invite them to join your league.
How do I join a Mini-League?
If you wish to join an existing league, you'll just need the Private League code from the chairman who created the league. When logged-in and viewing your team, choose 'Join League' from the 'My Leagues' section of the menu and follow the on-screen instructions.
How many Mini-Leagues can I join?
There is no limit to the number of Mini-Leagues you can join.
The league name and password that my friend gave me are not working?
Make sure you have selected the correct Mini-League from the search results. Password input is case sensitive, so make sure you don't have Caps Lock on.
Why are none of my friends receiving my Mini League invitations?
There is a chance that with some e-mail providers, the invitation e-mail may be caught in spam or junk mail filters. If this is happening, the best workaround is to directly email your friends the necessary league details.
