IPL 2020: The Indian Premier League (IPL) is slated to begin on September 19, while the final will be played on November 10, reports PTI.

This was decided in the IPL governing council meet on Sunday, reported ANI. It was also decided that instead of the usual 8 pm starts for the evening matches, they will begin 30 minutes earlier — at 7.30 pm.

As per the new schedule, the IPL 2020 tournament is scheduled to last for 51 days — two days more than what’s stipulated in the governing body’s constitution — and to seek permission for this the BCCI would have to approach the Supreme Court, ANI quoted sources as saying.

The IPL Governing Council has also decided to retain all sponsors of the event, including Chinese companies, the report further stated.

The Indian Premier League’s Governing Council has also approved COVID-19 replacements during the tournament to be held in UAE.

Further details awaited.
