In the year 2010 after successful completion of 3 seasons of IPL the BCCI announced that there will be 2 more new teams added to the already existing 8 teams making it a total of 10 teams. The two new teams added were Pune warriors and Kochi Tuskers.

The Deccan chronicle group which was owning the then Deccan chargers teams was facing some serious financial crisis following which they September 2012 decided to withdraw from participating in the league. So, subsequently, the team was placed for auction the following month of October 2012.

The team was then bought buy the Sun TV network group which was owned by a popular business tycoon from Tamil Nadu Mr Kalanidhi Maran. The name of the team was then changed as Sunrisers Hyderabad.

After a while both the newly added teams, the Pune warriors and Kochi Tuskers had to be terminated from the tournaments leaving the final tally of the total number of teams to only 8. So the current teams as of 2020 remain

1. Chennai Super Kings
2. Royal Challengers Bangalore
3. Mumbai Indians
4. Kolkata Knight Riders
5. Delhi Capitals
6. Kings XI Punjab
7. Sunrisers Hyderabad
8. Rajastan Royals

The squad for each team should comprise a total of 18 to not more than 25 players and among those not more than 8 should be foreign national players. And in the playing 11 of the teams, there should not be more than 4 foreign national players. The Team administration should not spend more than 85 crores INR or 12 million USD on salaries for the players (ie., the salary cap for players). An under-
19 player who has no experience in first class cricket is not eligible to play in the IPL.

Ravichandran Ashwin who was captain of Kings XI Punjab team in 2019 season switched to Delhi capitals team for the 2020 season.
