IPL Chairman Brijesh Patel has confirmed that this season of IPL will be played between 19th September to 8th November. Ending many speculations, the IPL Chairman confirmed that it will be a full fledged tournament.
The broadcaster Star India was said to be unhappy about the previously thought window of the T20 league.
According to media reports, the broadcaster Star India wanted the IPL to end on November 15 instead of November 8, and wanted to take full advantage of Diwali’s week through it. Diwali is on 14 November. The BCCI’s problem is that the Indian team’s Test series in Australia is to begin on December 3 and due to quarantine and practice, Team India will have to arrive in Australia early. Due to this, BCCI cannot extend the league beyond 8 November.
