The season will begin on March 29, 2020, at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai with the defending champions of the Mumbai Indians playing Chennai Super Kings. The final will be played on May 24, 2020.
For the first time, the season will include only 6 Matches in the afternoon and the tournament will last 57 days.
The schedule for this year’s edition had already been published by the franchises before the BCCI announced it on Tuesday. While all teams will play 7 home matches in their home cities, 2 of the Rajasthan Royals games on April 5 and 9 could be played in Jaipur or Guwahati. The places for these two games will be finalized in the next few days.
IPL Schedule 2020
This season you will also not see any double headings on Saturdays, but 2 consecutive games will be played on Sundays in a similar way to the previous editions, except the first and last day of the league stage.
Previously, the IPL governing board had decided not to change nighttime game schedules from 8 pm to 7.30 pm despite pressure from some interested parties.
