“Based on the preliminary discussions with the appropriate central and state agencies/authorities. It was decided that the 12th edition of the world’s most popular and competitive T20 tournament will be scheduled to be played in India,” the BCCI said in a release.

Going by the reports, BCCI is waiting for the final dates of the Lok Sabha elections to get announced, before their list the schedule for IPL 2019. Also, in February, the final date is expected to be out.

Meanwhile, the franchisees, broadcaster and the other stakeholders will take a sigh of relief, as the league matches are held in the country. The overseas venue would have added to the operational expenses; and also, affected the on-ground sponsorship and gate collections as well.

Change in the format for the first time?

Furthermore, this year, the IPL is getting started a bit too early, as the 2019 World Cup is scheduled to begin on May 30th.
