Defending champions Chennai Super Kings will open IPL 2019 against Royal Challengers Bangalore at the M. Chidambaram Stadium on March 23.
The IPL council released the fixtures for the first two weeks only considering the schedule is subject to change due to a potential clash with the general elections to be held across India during this period. Even the schedule for the first two weeks could be changed, the IPL’s governing body mentioned.
“Once the election dates are released we will address any issues with the first two weeks and also prepare a schedule for the remainder of the season working with the local authorities around the polling dates,” a statement on the IPL website read.
- A total of 17 matches will be held in the first two weeks.
- Double headers will be played only on the weekends during the first two weeks, like last year.
- The start time of the matches on double-header days weren’t released yet.
