Exclusive : Election Commission of India to Oversee IPL 2024 Schedule and Venues

2 min read

The impending ICC T20 World Cup 2024, scheduled for June 4-30 in the West Indies and the USA, presents a complex scheduling dilemma. The anticipation for the IPL 2024 Auction on December 19 in Dubai is high, as it marks a departure from its traditional setting in India. The fate of the IPL 2024, including its venue and schedule, depends on the decisions of the Election Commission of India (ECI) due to the upcoming general elections. The IPL Governing Council will wait for the ECI’s announcement of General Election dates, which will determine whether the IPL will take place entirely in India or require a partial relocation. The historical precedence of IPL scheduling during general elections, such as the tournament being shifted to South Africa in 2009, highlights the intricate balance between cricket schedules and electoral processes. As the IPL 2024 auction approaches on December 19, all ten franchises are strategically building their squads, with the tentative IPL 2024 schedule suggested for March 24-May 26. The BCCI aims to conclude the tournament a week before the end of May to allow players enough time to prepare for the T20 World Cup. The official schedule is expected in February after the ECI announces General Election dates. The intersection of cricketing aspirations and the nation’s electoral calendar elevates the intrigue surrounding IPL 2024, as fans eagerly await details of where and when this cricketing spectacle will unfold in 2024.
