However, the dates announced are only for first seventeen matches, where each team will play a minimum of 4 matches each while Delhi and Bangalore will play five matches.

However, the schedule announced for 17 matches is subject to the announcement of the Lok Sabha 2019 election dates.

On March 24, Kolkata Knight Riders will host Sunrisers Hyderabad at 4pm in Kolkata while Mumbai Indians will face-off against Delhi Capitals at 8pm in Mumbai. "Every team will play minimum of two home and two away matches with the Capitals playing three home matches, while RCB will play three away matches", the release added.
