The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has released the schedule for the league stage of the much-awaited Indian Premier League (IPL) for the year 2020.

The lung-opener will be played by two of the most successful franchises and the finalists of the 2019 edition — Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings — at the Wankhede Stadium on 29 March while the final will take place on 24 May.

The cash-rich league will go on for a duration of 57 days and feature only six afternoon games and doubleheaders.

The IPL will run six days longer than last year, BCCI added, with the extra days necessitated by the decision to do away with double-headers on Saturdays, limiting them to only Sundays.

While the BCCI revealed the league fixtures, it did not disclose the venue of the final for the eight-team tournament, which begins 11 days after India’s home ODI series against South Africa.

The Steve Smith-led Rajasthan Royals begin their campaign at Chennai on 2 April with Ben Stokes and Jos Buttler expected to join the side after England wrap up a two-Test series in Sri Lanka in late March.
