IPL 2023 Start Date: The Indian Premier League was concluded recently and the wait for the new season has already reached its peak. The 14th edition of the IPL will commence at its usual time window which is from April- May. Although the dates for the season haven’t been revealed yet it’s safe to assume that the season won’t start before 15th April.
1. IPL 2023 Start Date
Many might be wondering how does England’s tour of India is interjecting in the IPL, but do read out as there is a case. BCCI recently released the schedules for their series with England, and the series comprises of 4 tests, 5 T20, 3 ODI. The series is set to start from 5th February 2023 till 28th March 2023.
Hence it’s impossible for the players to join their franchises immediately after such a tiring series and play in the IPL. Thus the players would require a minimum of 10-15 days of rest before joining their franchises to play in the IPL 2023 schedule. Thatswhy the IPL 2023 start date is expected to be 15th April.
2. Annual General Meeting (AGM)
BCCI will hold its annual general meeting on 24th December, where all the major decisions will be taken by the board members.
The decision to conduct the league in India, the decision to hold mega-auctions, the decision to decide venues, and also the inclusion of new teams. Hence even if major decisions are taken then to imply and execute the decisions would take time.
3. IPL 2023 New Teams And Venues
It is likely that the IPL 2023 will take place in India, but the decision of whether to allow the fans in the stadium is still uncertain, moreover, it is very likely that the addition of 1 or 2 teams in IPL might not happen this year but take place in 2023.
Hence the reason for this would be the crunch of time as even the number of matches will also increase if teams are added. Hence it indicates the IPL will start after 10th April.
4. IPL 2023 Transfers
Players are currently on international duty and countries have scheduled their tours for the near future. Thus BCCI also has to consider the tours of other countries other than India.
Hence once the players are available then wheater a mega auction would take place is not sure but a mini-auction would definitely be in place and to hold that after the international tours are over will take time.
5. Suresh Raina Confirms His Presense For IPL 14
One of the talking points of IPL 13 was CSK’s performance and one major factor was Raina’s absence. But the good news for CSKians as Suresh Raina in one of his interviews confirmed that he will be taking part in the IPL 14.
