The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed the two groups for the IPL 2022 season. The addition of two new franchises has prompted the league to have two separate groups.

The teams in each group were decided based on the number of titles won by the franchises and the number of appearances in the final of the IPL. Therefore, Mumbai Indians (MI) with five titles and Chennai Super Kings (CSK) with four titles were drafted first.

Each team will play 14 matches in the league stage where they will face off twice against the other franchise in its group, and once against each franchise in the other group.
