5. Return of the Chennai Super Kings and the Rajasthan Royals.
Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals , are the two teams which got suspended from the league for a period of 2 years and has not played for the last 2 seasons of IPL. It was believed that both teams have lost they fans due to suspension from league from 2 years, but it was turned out to be false as both teams have created a buzz even before the starting of the tournament.
The Crazy among the Super King’s fans has reached to a whole new level that they are visiting the stadium even during the practice sessions too.

Well it’s been clear that Return of both the teams will create a huge spike in TRP’s and Fan’s will get unlimited fun watching they favorite team’s competing each other during the tournament.
4. Reshuffled teams.
IPL Auction 2018 which was held earlier this year will be considered as a special one because this is the first time after 2008 the teams have been built from scratch again.Most of the players who played for particular franchise will now play from other teams.
Due to a Policy called as (retention policy ), most of the teams have never released they star players since 2008, but this year it has been changed as most of the star players will play opposite to their old teams.
For example Mumbai Indians never released their Star players like Harbhajan Singh and Lasith Malinga, Royal Challengers Bangalore never released Chris Gayle and there are many others like these star players.
In this season we can see few of them playing in different teams.
3. Introduction of DRS
DRS ( Decision Review System ) which is been used in all the 3 international formats has been introduced to IPL this season. Decision Review System has Successfully became a part of cricket mainly after it has been successful in reducing umpiring errors.
Starting from this season each team will get one review per innings, but if you check the last decade the umpire decision used to be the last and final. with this new technology been introduced in the game the teams will have power to recheck the umpires decision and if he proves wrong the decision can be changed in favor to teams that asked for DRS.
During the previous season of Indian Premier League we saw some poor umpiring, which cost teams heavily and introduction of DRS has been of the most discussed topic all across the Season from then.
Finally the cricket board has listens to it’s fans and introduced DRS this season and with this decision from Cricket Board the league will be more exciting the ever.

2. Mid-season transfers
According to few resources, it’s been said that ILP 2018 will allow players to transfer team’s in middle of the season. This transfer of players between teams can take place between match 28 to 42.
By doing this all the uncapped players are eligible for transfer.The addition of this feature into the league is one of the best thing as this opens an opportunity to those players who are stuck to bench whole season.
Addition of these feature really excites me a lot because we can see players wearing jersey on one day and a different jersey on another day.
