The two teams were originally scheduled to play at the Chinnaswamy Stadium on 12 May but now that has been moved to Delhi.

RCB's home game against Daredevils will now be on 21 April.

Karnataka will be going to vote on 12 May in 224 constituencies of the Legislative Assembly and the counting of votes will happen on 15 May. As a result, Bengaluru will not host any games between 12 May and 15. RCB can play the home game again in 17 May against Sunrisers Hyderabad as the voting announcement will be over by then.
