When does IPL start in India

Date Published: 5th May 2020
Author: Garey Kennedy
Sports have gained so much popularity globally for they make life a bit more fun. Various clubs have been formulated to facilitate the growth of these sporting activities by nurturing the players. Sports are so significant especially in matters regarding social and international relations because they unite people all over the world. The world cup is an illustration of how sports are idolized for fans usually come out in large numbers to support their team players. In this segment, however we shall discuss IPL in India.

India is a densely populated country that is located in the Asian continent. It is a country that idolizes sports so much especially cricket. IPL is a famous acronym in India that stands for Indian Premier League. It is a cricket league that is mainly contested yearly in the months of either March, April or May. Their exact dates are not yet established for the IPL is usually held on different dates each year. This league is quite a major one in India for at least all the eight cities in India get a chance to compete in the games. Every city usually prepares their best team players for this competition to emerge the best.

When does IPL start in India

It is important to note that this major league was founded back in 2008 by the BBCI which stands for Board of Control for Cricket of India. Indian Premier League has gained excess popularity because this was the first league that was ever streamed live on YouTube for the fans to watch. It was also ranked as the fourth biggest league considering the fact that it is the most attended league in the world.

Ever since this Premier League came to existence, there have only been twelve seasons of tournaments. A season represents a year therefore, we can estimate that the league was founded in 2007. The winners of the 2019 season were the Mumbai Indians who are currently still the flag bearers since the 2020 tournament is yet to take place hopefully. Most probably, the current pandemic may force the games to be cancelled till next year for it is highly contagious therefore, putting all lives at risk. But when luck comes our way and the vaccine to Corona virus is found, maybe the tournaments might be held in June. BBCI indefinitely suspended the tournaments early this year due to the break out of the virus.

Ever since this Premier League came

The thirteenth season which was to happen this year, was scheduled to be on the 29th of March 2020. It was, however postponed to the 12th of April to give the board an ample time to weigh in on the Coronavirus vaccine possibilities. Unfortunately, 12th April already came to pass and the virus is still so much prevailing. Afterwords, the board decided to hold the league in June but India was already under a lockdown. It then resorted into holding the match behind closed doors but this would not be possible given the current situation, and they are also heading to the winter. The managements were left with no option other than suspending the tournaments. BBCI is yet to give further directives on the possible dates of the tournament and if necessary, it might fail to take place this year until the situation becomes better.

Something worth noting is also that at first, when the Premier League came to existence, the BBCI was so hesitant to accept it. In fact, it ended up penalizing heavily those players that teamed up to make the Premier League a lot stronger. Though BBCI is now actively participating in the affairs of the league, it was its major obstacle back in 2007. The League ended up emerging strong as a result of the help it received from Zee Entertainment Enterprises. Even the International Cricket Council known as ICC did not quite play a major role in enhancing the development of this league.

Something worth noting is also that

For this year's tournaments, the Mumbai Indians were supposed to open the march by going against the Chennai Supper Kings. This was so for they were the winners of the previous season, so it was rightfully their place to start off the march. The 2020 Indian Premier League was supposed to be held at Wankhede stadium that is located in Mumbai. On to the foundation of this major and celebrated premier league, it was first launched in New Delhi.

During the tournaments, all the eight teams as stated above play against each other. Then those who make it to the top four positions end up playing on the playoffs. Afterwards, the best two teams face each other on the first qualifying match. The team that wins then proceeds to the Indian Premier League finals while the second best team gets a rare chance of playing for the second qualifying match before proceeding to the Indian Premier League finals.

During the tournaments, all the eight

Those other two teams left from the chosen four ends up facing each other in another first qualifying match. The team that qualifies faces off with the one that lost on the second qualifying match. That team which wins proceeds to the Indian Premier League finals to face off the other chosen two. The team that wins the Indian Premier League finals is therefore, announced as the winner of that season. That team then goes home victoriously as the winners of IPL and the second team as the second best.

The winning teams usually goes home loaded with some good cash due to the investments that BBCI puts in the IPL. For instance, during the last tournament season, the Indian Premier League gave the winning team a total of $2.8 million. The first runners-up cashed in a total of $1.8 million while the second runners-up cashed in a total of $1.4 million.

The Indian Premier League is a bid deal especially in India due to the wide popularity it has already gained. Its indefinite suspension obviously came as a blow to the IPL fans for they were anticipating for the thirteenth season to happen this year as stated above. However, there is still some hope left for some countries like Japan have started coming up with the possibilities of the Coronavirus vaccine. Therefore, although we still do not know when the match will take place, there is still sometime left for we must always be hopeful in life. Their respective time and dates might have elapsed but the tournaments might still happen late this year.
