- Final Words
Rule No. 1 – Mid Season Transfer will kick in only at the halfway stage
The transfer will only be applicable at the halfway mark in the league stage when all franchises have played seven games each. This means once each franchise has played 7 games, Mid-Season Transfer Window will be opened.
Rule No. 2- Both teams should be agreed to transfer the player
The transfer will only be applicable when both the teams should be agreed to transfer the player.
Rule No. 3 – IPL 2020 has allowed capped players along with uncapped players in this Mid Season to Transfer
Last year, the IPL had opened up a five-day window for uncapped players to be loaned mid-season. This time around, for the first time, the IPL has allowed loans of capped players – Indian or overseas – if the franchises have injury concerns going into the second half.

Teams who want to add the player into their line-ups:
Kings 11 Punjab
Kings XI Punjab is at the bottom of the table, the problem for them is that they are not able to finish the game. They need the bowling allrounder because no one in their bowling team is capable of batting to end the game.
They are all number 11 batsmen for their respective international teams like Shami, Cottrell, Mujeeb, and Bishnoi, No one can do batting to finish the game. And the second problem is death over bowling. They lost two matches because of their death bowling against Rajasthan and Delhi where Stoinis and Tewatia took the game away from Punjab.
The solution maybe they go for Mitchell Santner who can bat at number seven and bowls in the middle overs and for death overs Nathan Coulter-Nile is the perfect guy for them he can bat also at 8 and bowls with the new and old ball or Lockie Ferguson who bowls fast can bowl at the death.
Chennai Super Kings
The problem for Chennai super kings has been their middle-order they do not have someone who can play with a good strike rate in the middle overs. Ambati Rayudu needs someone with him who can play big shots in the middle.
For that Chennai can look for a guy like Manan Vohra who can play spin aggressively or a guy like Rahane who can open with Watson and then Chennai can play du Plessis at 3 and Rayudu at four.
Other than that Chennai does not have an off-spinner in their line-up maybe a guy like Jayant Yadav who can also bat would be great because Jadeja is not looking in the form with the ball he can be helpful for them.
The problem for Sunrisers is the injury of Bhuvneshwar Kumar because he is very good with the new ball always taking wickets and also effective in the death overs.
The problem of death over is still there because of the form of Sandeep Singh and Siddharth Kaul. So they can look forward to a guy like Mohit Sharma or Sandeep Warrier to bowl in death with T. Natrajan.
Other than that no team should be looking to add a player in the squad Team like Rajasthan have a good side they just need their players to do well are then the Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians, and Kolkata knight Riders and RCB are looking in great touch and have a balanced team.
The Mid Season transfer would be a great thing and it can create excitement in the tournament. The teams can sit and take a look on their side and add players they want to find the perfect balance in their team.
In this, both the team should be agreed on the transfer and have to follow the rules mentioned above. This is a great idea from the board to add more excitement to the tournament.
