IPL to be played in India, to begin on March 23

NEW DELHI, January 8: The speculation over where the 12th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) will be held has finally ended. The Supreme Court appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) on Tuesday decided that IPL 2019 will be scheduled to be played in India itself.
The CoA met in the capital to discuss the IPL 2019 venues and window and based on preliminary discussions with the appropriate central and state agencies and authorities took the decision.
According to a BCCI press release, it has also been proposed that IPL 2019 will commence on March 23, 2019 and the detailed schedule will be finalised in consultation with the appropriate authorities.
The CoA will also have detailed discussions with all the stakeholders before releasing the full IPL 2019 schedule.
“We will have all the primary venues backed up by alternate venues in case there is a need to shift matches. This will be done in consultation with central and state government authorities as well as security agencies,” CoA chairman Vinod Rai said. (Agencies)
