IPL 2020 Date: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) wants to start the next season of IPL from March 28, but the franchisees are not getting it right. These eight franchises say that there are two big series during this period, due to which foreign players may have problems coming. A senior official of a franchise said that the official calendar of IPL 2020 has not yet released. It expects that the Gervinning Council will go back to its old format, which had doubleheaders and the league started from April 1.
Let us know that in March next year, Australia and New Zealand will play a series of three T20 matches. England and Sri Lanka teams will play two Test matches. The next season of IPL has auctioned. In the IPL auction was on 19 December in Kolkata, 62 players were bid. With this, the picture of all the teams is clear.
IPL 2020 Date
A franchise official said, ‘The last T20 match of the Australia and New Zealand series will end on March 29. March 31 is the last day of the second Test for England and Sri Lanka. In this situation, you will start the season without your big players and it will not be a good thing. If we start from April 1, things can get better. Hopefully, the IPL Governing Council will heed what we are saying.
Another franchise official said that four franchisees raised the issue during the meeting on the evening of the auction. The official said, ‘See, this is a situation that is not going in favor of the franchisees. And this issue also discusses four to five teams. Nobody wants to start on the backfoot. But we can only hope. We still have a few weeks to go before the calendar arrives. We can appeal.
Another official said, ‘Last year, our players had finally gone. And this time we can start the season without our top-4 players. The IPL governing council should focus on this because we would like to start well and get a good rhythm at the beginning of the season. The decision on the dates of the upcoming season of the IPL has to be taken by the Governing Council whether it wants to start the league from March 28 or from April 1.
