IPL 2019 set to begin from March 23 in India

It is proposed that the VIVO IPL 2019 will commence on March 23, 2019. The 2019 season will begin on March 23, according to a statement by the CoA.

"The specific reason for having a back-up venue is to ensure that we don't have any issue if there is polling or recounting or PM's rally in any of the states once the election dates are announced", he added.

While the full schedule hasn't been released as of now, (it) "will be finalised in consultation with the appropriate authorities", said the BCCI statement.

However, putting to rest all the speculations, the BCCI said Tuesday that the Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) has discussed the matter with "appropriate central and state agencies" and that based on the preliminary discussions, it was decided that IPL will be played in India. After that, the league has always kicked off in the first half of April.

Knicks’ Kanter to skip London trip, fearing Erdogan reprisal
Kanter is a follower of a US -based Turkish cleric accused by Turkey's government of masterminding a failed military coup in 2016. He says he can't travel anywhere except the USA and Canada because "there's a chance I could get killed out there".

The biggest challenge for the franchises next season is that the IPL will end a couple of weeks before the World Cup begins on May 30 in England.

Owing to the general elections and its logistical ramifications, the 2019 IPL was rumoured to be held outside India, preferably in South Africa or the United Arab Emirates. The entire 2009 edition was moved to South Africa, while in 2014, some games were played in the UAE. Notably, according to Justice Lodha recommendations, there should at least be a 15-day window between the IPL and the next worldwide fixture of the India cricket team.

That the IPL will stay in the country was first hinted by BCCI officials during the players' auction in Jaipur last month.
