The BCCI announced IPL 2019 Schedule after a long wait: Defending champions Chennai Super Kings will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore in the opening match of IPL 2019 in Chennai on March 23. The schedule, which was announced on Tuesday (February 19), was only for the first two weeks of the tournament and “subject to  the announcement of the Lok Sabha 2019 election dates.”

The BCCI, which is awaiting details of the 2019 elections, stated that once the polling dates are decided it would “address any issues with the first two weeks and will also prepare a schedule for the remainder of the season working with the local authorities around the polling dates.”

As per the current schedule, as many as 17 matches will be played from March 23 to April 5, with three double-header days on March 24, 30 and 31.

A total of 17 matches will be played during these 2 weeks period across the 8 home venues of the respective franchises. All teams will play a minimum of 4 matches with Delhi Capitals and RCB Playing 5 matches. Every team will play a minimum of 2 home and away matches with DC playing 3 home matches, while RCB will play 3 away matches.

While the weekends will have double-headers but the schedule doesn’t clarify whether the BCCI will continue with the usual 4 pm (afternoon) and 8 pm (evening) format or there will be a change in timing.
