SMAT 2022 will include a number of IPL talents. Interestingly, if the squad is divided by IPL team-wise distribution, then the scenario is totally different.

Six cities—Lucknow, Jaipur, Mohali, Indore, and Lucknow—will host a total of 126 group phase games, while Kolkata will host all ten knockout games.
The knockout round will begin on October 30 with the pre-quarterfinals, followed by the quarterfinal on November 1 and the semifinals on November 3. The group phase will end on October 22.
