Jaipur: A day after Jaipur's Sawai Mansingh Stadium was officially confirmed as one of the venues for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2018, Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) secretary Rajendra Nandu said that the stadium is all set to host the home matches of the Rajasthan Royals.

While all major preparations have been made, the remaining ones, which are quite minor, will be done in the next three-four days, Nandu told IANS.

"All preparations have been done. The BCCI officials have been touring the stadium at regular intervals to record the progress of the ongoing work in the stadium. They are satisfied with the kind of work going on," he said.

The dates fixed for IPL matches in Jaipur are 11, 18, 22 and 29 April and 8 and 11 May.

Australian leg-spin legend Shane Warne, who led the Royals to the title in the inaugural edition in 2008, has recently confirmed that he will return to the IPL, this time as the team mentor.

Recently, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had revoked the four-year ban on the Rajasthan Cricket Association. Earlier, it had suspended the association after former IPL chief Lalit Modi faced corruption charges and the matter went to court.
