IPL 2024 Dates

IPL 2024 Dates: The Indian Premier League (IPL), the most lucrative and popular cricket league in the world, is set to begin on March 22, just five days after the end of the Women’s Premier League (WPL). The IPL will run for two months, until May 26, leaving a very short gap before the T20 World Cup, which starts on June 1 in the West Indies and the Caribbean.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has revealed its tentative schedule for the 17th edition of the IPL, which will feature eight teams and 60 matches. The BCCI has also announced that the second season of the WPL, which will have four teams and 15 matches, will be held from February 22 to March 17 in Bengaluru and Delhi. The IPL 2024 Dates are expected to be confirmed soon, possibly on Monday.

The BCCI is facing a challenge in finalizing the IPL schedule, as it has to factor in the dates of the General Election, which are yet to be announced. The BCCI is hoping to avoid any clashes between the IPL matches and the polling days, and is confident of hosting the entire tournament in India, unlike in the past when some matches were shifted to other countries due to security reasons.

The IPL 2024 Dates will also have an impact on the preparations and availability of the players for the T20 World Cup, which is the biggest event in the shortest format of the game. India, who are one of the favourites to win the trophy, will play their first match on June 5, nine days after the IPL final. The BCCI has assured that most of the players from other countries will be able to participate in the IPL till the end, but some of them may have to leave early for the World Cup. The BCCI’s main priority, however, is to ensure that the IPL is a success and a spectacle for the millions of fans across the globe.
