The thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will start on September 19 in the United Arab Emirates, according to media reports.
“IPL in all likelihood will start on September 19 (Saturday) and the final will be held on November 8 (Sunday). It is a 51-day window which will suit the franchises as well as the broadcasters and other stakeholders,” a senior BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
Reportedly, IPL franchises will leave base by August 20, which will give them a month to prepare for the tournament.
The IPL, originally scheduled to start in March, had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
