Chepauk Stadium is expected to host the first match of the IPL 2022 season.
According to the latest sources, IPL 2022 will begin on April 02 in India. Due to COVID-19 issues in India, the first half of the IPL 2021 was held in the UAE while the second half was held in India. However, it was previously claimed that the 2022 edition will be held entirely in India, and according to current reports, the event will begin on April 2nd.
In contrast to the previous season, IPL 2022 will include ten teams competing for the title, with Ahmedabad and Lucknow being announced as the two new franchises. It will also be preceded by a massive auction in which teams will settle on new combinations. The entire season would be completed in 60 days, with the final scheduled for early June.
“I know that you’re all excited to see the Chennai Super Kings match in Chepauk stadium. So, the time is not far away. The IPL’s 15th season will be held in India, and it will be more interesting than ever thanks to the addition of two new clubs. “We’re going to have a huge auction soon, so it’ll be interesting to watch what the new combinations look like,” a BCCI official told Cricbizz.
The IPL 2022 season is expected to kick off at Chennai’s Chepauk Stadium.
Each squad will play a total of 14 league games, seven at home and seven on the road. Because the event is expected to begin in Chennai, Chepauk will be the preferred location. CSK is the defending champions and will thus open the proceedings, but the opponents have yet to be determined. Ness Wadia has recommended to the BCCI the concept of holding some abroad IPL games during the off-season.
“The BCCI will schedule off-season matches in areas with a large Indian Immigrant community.” As a result, the IPL will expand even further. In the off-season, a group of three or five games is based on player availability. Allow the top four franchises to play a few games in different cities each year, such as Miami, Toronto, or Singapore. According to Ness Wadia, who spoke earlier in the day, it will simply reinforce an already strong product “as read and reported by www.crictracker.com”.
