The IPL is a T20 format game and is played between eight teams in total. There are 20 overs in a match, and each bowler is allowed to bowl four overs from it. From the fielding point of view, players are allowed to stand in the thirty-yard circle for the first six overs. This is called powerplay, and after in the powerplay, only two players can stand outside the thirty-yard circle.
Moreover, there are two umpires on the field and one-third empire, which is allowed to interfere in the game for no balls and other things. If a player is not satisfied with the decision of the empire, they can go to the third umpire. There are two DRS available for a team in one inning, i.e., a total of four DRS.
