IPL schedule for first two weeks is ready


MUMBAI: BCCI on Thursday released the schedule for the first phase of the 17th season of the Indian Premier League. The fixtures for 17 days and 21 matches from March 22 to April 7 have been released. The fixtures for the rest of the matches will be prepared after dates for the Lok Sabha elections in various states are announced.

Defending champion Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the opening match of the IPL at the M.A. Chidambaram Stadium.

The matches will be played across 10 cities, with each team playing a minimum of three matches and a maximum of five. However, as per this schedule, there will only be five days between the anticipated May 26 IPL final and June 1, when the men's T20 World Cup will begin in the USA and the Caribbean.

Once the Election Commission of India releases the dates of the General Elections, which are anticipated to take place in April and May, the second half of the tournament schedule will be released.
