IPL to adjust schedule for Lok Sabha elections
Advertisement
#1
MUMBAI/NEW DELHI: The Indian Premier League (IPL) will reschedule the matches that coincide with the Lok Sabha Elections.

The dates of the general elections were announced today and it is apparent that some of the matches will have to be rescheduled. "If a match clashes with the polling day in that city, then we will have to make a change," BCCI secretary N Srinivasan tells Indiantelevision.com.

While Indian voters will pick a new government over five phases between 16 April and 13 May, the second edition of the IPL kicks off on 10 April. The inaugural day of the IPL will, thus, remain unchanged.

An obvious match that will have to be rescheduled is that between Kolkata Knight Riders against Bangalore Royal Challengers in Kolkata on 13 May.

“We have always maintained that the tournament schedule was tentative as it was likely to clash with the polls. But more importantly, the IPL Season II window from 10 April to 24 May will remain unchanged,” IPL CEO Sundar Raman tells Indiantelevision.com.
