There is no thought of moving the IPL out of the country due to the elections and the entire league will be played in India only. Like the 2019 season of the IPL, which clashed with the General Elections, the schedule will be announced in phases and the schedule of the first few games will be announced before the complete schedule – including the qualifiers, eliminator and final – is announced.

Back in 2019, the General Elections as held in seven phases and BCCI announced the schedule of only the first two weeks of the IPL. It is, however, reliably learnt that the BCCI, IPL GC and franchises have had discussions around the tentative schedule and the cash-rich league is likely to begin towards the end of March.

India are currently playing the five-Test series against England and there will be little over a week’s rest for the Test regulars to get ready for the T20 extravaganza. It is a very crucial IPL season for the 2024 T20 World Cup hopefuls as the performances in the league would be taken into account for picking the squad for the ICC event later this year.

In an interaction on the sidelines of an event in Rajkot, BCCI secretary Jay Shah said all national selectors will be attending IPL games at different venues and added that the decision on a new selector is likely to be taken soon.

The BCCI medical team and National Cricket Academy (NCA) will also be closely monitoring the workload of players expected to make the T20 World Cup cut and Shah added that, like previous editions, all franchises will have no option but to follow what “supreme body” decides.

“Franchises will have to follow whatever BCCI decide. BCCI is the supreme body. We are above the franchises,” said Shah.
