New Delhi | Jagran Sports Desk: With the end of the first half of the tournament, the Indian Premier League (IPL) governing council has opened a mid-season transfer window for the franchises today. The transfer window will remain open for five days till Saturday, October 17. Teams placed at the bottom three in the points table will be eager to rope in a few players to give a fresh start to their campaign in the tournament.

The transfer window will allow all the teams to assess their performances and make transfers based on the player reviews to bolster their setup in the second half of the tournament. According to BCCI, all teams should have played half their matches, that would be seven, for the process to begin. After Match 28 between Kolkata and Bangalore, all eight teams have now played seven games and the BCCI has opened the transfer window.

Both capped, uncapped players eligible for transfer

The BCCI has allowed the franchises to transfer or loan both capped and uncapped players, provided they have not played more than two matches in the tournament. Such was not the case until last year when only uncapped players were eligible for transfer. The transfer is possible only if there is mutual consent between the two franchises. This arrangement is available only for the remainder of the season and the loanee returns to his parent team next season.
