The 11th edition of Indian Premier League is all set to be played from 7th April 2018. Just like previous editions of IPLT20, eight teams will be competing in the mega twenty20 cricket league. Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals will be returning to IPL after serving two years suspension.
Gujarat Lions and Rising Pune Supergiant who came into existence for 2016 and 2017 Indian Premier League editions, will no longer be a part of the competition. Hence CSK and RR will be playing in the IPL-11.
