IPL 2018 Schedule Announced!


A step closer to IPL 2018. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) have announced the fixtures list of the much-awaited eleventh season of the Indian Premier League (IPL), on Wednesday. The matches will be played at nine venues, across 51 days from April 7 to May 27, 2018.


"Defending champions Mumbai Indians will take on two-time winners Chennai Super Kings in what promises to be a marquee opening game of Indian Premier League 2018, to be played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on Saturday, April 7, 2018," BCCI stated.



For the fans of Chennai and Jaipur, the festival of cricket is back! M. A. Chidambaram Stadium (Chepauk) and the Sawai Mansingh Stadium will host home matches of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals respectively. Kings XI Punjab will play their three home matches in Indore and four matches at home in Mohali.


The final blast will be at the prestigious Wankhede Stadium on May 27, which would see the crowning of the IPL 2018 Champion.
Wankhede Stadium
  12 matches will be played at 4:00 PM IST and 48 matches will start at 8:00 PM IST. The IPL governing council  had last month accepted the broadcaster's request to shift the timings of  the matches,  however, a section of  franchises who are 50 percent stakeholders in the IPL revenue model, expressed their grievances with the change in timings as it  was done without consulting them.

After a scintillating auction of crazy money matching bids, teams have shaped up as per their pocket and tactics.

The Knights of Kolkata starts their IPL 2018 campaign against the Challengers of Bangalore at the Mecca of Indian cricket and home to KKR – Eden Gardens, Kolkata.
