With the finale scheduled for May 24, the franchise-based event will start 11 days after India’s home ODI series against South Africa ends on March 18 in Kolkata.
The tournament this year will run for a week more as compared to the previous editions after the organisers decided to do away with the Saturday double-headers.
Get IN! Our title defence begins on March 29 against CSK 🏆💙

The BCCI sent out the final fixture to the franchises on Saturday, stating that six double-headers will take place only on Sundays.
The Indian Premier League will release the schedule for the knockouts later, however, the last league game is scheduled for May 17, between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai in Bengaluru.
