The rules of the Indian Premiere League have changed since the last 2 years and this year too the same rule will be followed. There will be no quarter finals or semi finals. Instead the team that will top the IPL 2013 team standings will qualify for the final directly. After that there will be play offs where the 2nd, 3rd and 4th team will have to fight in order to qualify for the final.The IPL 2013 team standings in the points table will decide which team will go into the finals directly after the teams have played their 8 respective matches. Teams on winning will get 2 points for every match. However the losing team will not get any points and if the match is a tie then there will be a super over where the winner will be decided. In case any match is terminated due to rain or any other reasons then the teams will share 1 point each.
The team standing second will get two matches to qualify for the final whereas the teams in the 3rd and 4th place will get one match each. After the seven games if any team is tied with the same point with another team in the IPL 2013 points table, then the net run rate will come into play. This net run rate will be decided after taking several things into consideration such as number of runs by which one team has defeated the other, number of wickets in hand when the winning team was batting and such other things.
