With the introduction of 2 new teams, a new ten-team format was created. This new format consists of 74 matches and was introduced as retaining the previous format would result in 94 matches, significantly greater than the 60 matches from the previous season, where teams compete in a double round-robin tournament. The knockout stage was changed to a playoff format. If a match ends in a tie, a Super Over will be played to determine the winner.
The ten teams are divided into two groups of five. In the group stage, each team plays 14 games: facing the other four teams in their group two times each (one home and one away game), four teams in the other group once, and the remaining team two times. A random draw was used to determine the groups and who plays whom across the groups once and twice.
Each team plays the team in the same row and the same column twice, and all others once. For instance, Pune Warriors will play Chennai Super Kings and the other Group A teams twice but the other teams from Group B (Kolkata Knight Riders, Kochi Tuskers Kerala, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals) only once. Similarly Kochi Tuskers Kerala will play Delhi Daredevils and the other Group B teams twice but all other teams from Group A only once.
|Group A||Group B|
|Deccan Chargers||Kolkata Knight Riders|
|Delhi Daredevils||Kochi Tuskers Kerala|
|Kings XI Punjab||Royal Challengers Bangalore|
|Mumbai Indians||Rajasthan Royals|
|Pune Warriors India||Chennai Super Kings|
Points are awarded in the group stage as follows:
|No result||1 point|
A four-game playoff stage following the Page playoff system is held after the group stage.
Four games will be played in the playoffs:
- Game A, between the teams ranked first and second in the group stage.
- Game B, between the teams ranked third and fourth in the group stage.
- Game C, between the loser of Game A and winner of Game B.
- Final, between the winners of Games A and C.
The top three teams from the tournament qualify for the 2011 Champions League Twenty20. Due to the new playoff format, the qualifying teams will be the top two teams of the group stage and the winner of Game B in the playoff stage.
