Dhumal, however, rejected these speculations outright. He said IPL is not being shifted anywhere. The tournament schedule will be announced soon. The schedule for the first two weeks of IPL has been released.

IPL Will Start From March 22

The first match will be played between defending champions Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore on March 22 in Chennai. Indian Cricket Board Secretary Jay Shah clarified earlier that the entire IPL tournament will be played in India, as in the last Lok Sabha election year 2019. They were only waiting for the election dates to be announced by the Election Commission.

Earlier, however, the league was shifted out of the country during the general elections in 2014 when the UPA government was in power. Then, the first leg matches were played in UAE, while the second leg matches were organized in India.
