Also, in the meeting on Monday, the Governing Council of the IPL decided not to change the timing of the matches. Accordingly, the second match of the day will start at 8 pm. There was a lot of pressure to start these matches from 7:30 pm, but the Governing Council has refused to change it.
However, there was speculation earlier that the final match of the next season of the IPL could be played in Ahmedabad. Apart from this, an All-Stars game will also be played among all the top international players before the IPL starts for the charity.
Speaking to reporters after the IPL Governing Council meeting, Ganguly said, “There will be no change in the timing of IPL night matches.” There was a discussion in the IPL Governing Council about starting the matches at 7:30 pm, but that is not going to happen. He also stated that only five doubleheaders (4 pm and 8 pm) matches will be played.
The matches on the night of the tournament will start at 8 pm in their own time. There was speculation that the final match of the IPL would be played at the Sardar Patel Stadium in Gujarat, although now this has come to an end.
