The full schedule of the Indian Premier League 2019 was released today on tournament's official website iplt20.com only to be removed a few moments later. India TV Sports Desk has saved the screenshot for you and if it is any hint of things to come, we can tell you that the final will be played on May 12. The tournament playoffs are scheduled from 7th to 10th May. There will be a total of 60 matches played at this year's tournament with each team playing one home and away fixture against every other team during the league stage. BCCI, however, has not announced any official schedule yet.
UPDATE: iplt20.com has now uploaded the full schedule except those of the playoffs and the final.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India [BCCI] had earlier announced the schedule for only the first 17 games from March 23 to April 5.
The 12th edition of the IPL is set to be underway from March 23 in Chennai between current champions Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore. The delay was because of the 2019 General Elections which are set to clash with the mega-rich tournament and the inability for many centres to provide adequate security. However, the Indian board decided to hold the tournament in the country unlike in 2009 and 2014, when the tournament was shifted to South Africa and UAE [first part] for the same reason.
Here’s is the picture of the goof-up by IPL 2019 Official Website:
Last year's winners Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in Chennai in the opener. In the first part, all teams are playing a minimum of four matches with the newly-christened Delhi Capitals and RCB playing five matches. Every team will play a minimum of two home and two away matches with DC playing three home matches, while RCB will play three away matches.
The schedule is balanced in terms of afternoon matches/weekend matches and travel. The board has factored the 2019 Lok Sabha elections dates/phases in the respective states and cities and clearance thereof.
