What did the latest IPL 2020 GC meeting shed light on?

The IPL Governing Council meeting was held in New Delhi on Monday. The GC members along with the BCCI office-bearers were present in the meeting. The IPL 2020 GC meeting has shed light on a few things, confirming a few but restrained to give anything new. VIVO IPL 2020 will begin from 29th of March 2020 and will end on the 24th of May 2020. The grand finale of the marquee tournament of ’em all will be held on May 24, in Mumbai.

What do we have now?

  • The start and end dates are confirmed. Check the Vivo IPL 2020 Schedule.
  • The largest stadium in the history of Cricket, Motera Stadium, Ahmedabad has to wait a bit more since it is still doubtful.
  • 5 overall double-headers only, rest all are 8 PM starts, a big thank you for this, to Dada.
  • No change in the timings of the matches.
  • A marquee IPL All Stars Cricket match, replacing the opening ceremony. The match earnings will go to a charity foundation. Just like they did in 2010.
  • Women’s T20 exhibition to feature four teams.

What we don’t?

  • The full schedule of Vivo IPL 2020.
  • The haze on the hosting of a few IPL games in Guwahati prevails.

The serene Barsapara Stadium, Guwahati would or not get any IPL matches. Since it has been completed, many IPL franchisee, KKR to name one, has shown their interest to host a few of their home games in the State of Cultural Heritage, Assam. But someway it’s stopped. This is still unclear whether this is the year that brings IPL, the tournament of joy, to the City of Muga Silk and handicrafts, Guwahati. Will Dada be the one? If not him, who will?

The BCCI president Sourav Ganguly after the IPL 2020 GC meeting

“There will be no change in the timing of IPL night games. It will start from 8 pm like earlier years. There was discussion about 7:30 pm but it’s not happening. We will have only five doubleheaders (4 pm and 8 pm) this time. IPL final will be held in Mumbai. The concussion substitute and the no-ball rule are new additions for the season.”

The air has it that Rajasthan Royals will be playing three of their home games in Guwahati this edition.

The BCCI president stated,

“There will be an IPL All-Stars Game three days before the start of IPL. The venue is not Ahmedabad as it still not match-ready. We have not decided on where we will make the donation (the match earnings).”
