The 17th Indian Premier League (IPL) season is expected to begin on March 22, which is exactly five days after the Women’s Premier League (WPL) is supposed to end. The Indian Premier League (IPL) will conclude on May 26, which is only five days before the T20 World Cup in the Caribbean and West Indies kicks off. On June 5, nine days later, India would play its first World Cup match.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and its stakeholders have tentatively agreed upon a timetable that dates the second season of the WPL from February 22 to March 17. The league will be hosted in Delhi and Bengaluru, as was originally announced. It is anticipated that the dates will be formally announced in a day or two, probably on Monday.
The General Election calendar and the IPL schedule are closely related, as Cricbuzz previously revealed. Covertly, the BCCI is thinking of having the event from March 22 to May 26. The election dates must be published before the schedule can be confirmed, but the BCCI is optimistic that the entire league will be played in India.
Most cricket boards have assured the BCCI that their players will be accessible until the final. However, it cannot be ruled out that some players may travel early because the T20 World Cup starts on June 1. However, the BCCI’s top priority right now is to hold the league in India and coordinate the timetable with the general elections.
Rohit to practice in Mumbai
The majority of the Indian players, including Virat Kohli and Ravindra Jadeja, participated in a net session that was taking place in Hyderabad. However, captain Rohit Sharma was not present, choosing instead to attend a private net session at Mumbai’s BKC Ground.
On Monday, when the team will be in Hyderabad for another net session, Rohit is anticipated to join them. Given that it is known that Jadeja intends to visit Ayodhya, he may decide not to attend the session. On Saturday, the players reached Hyderabad.
