The 2018 Indian Premier League (IPL) promises to start on a high with defending champions Mumbai Indians (MI) taking on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the opening game on April 7 at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai.

The IPL Governing council has swapped the dates of Kings XI Punjab’s (KXIP) home matches with the first three games being held in Mohali (in April) and the last four games in Indore (in May) owing to some logistical issues.

As per the revised itinerary, KXIP will play in Mohali on (April 15, 19 and 23) instead of Indore.

On the other hand, the Karnataka Assembly election on May 12 has forced a scheduling change for the Royal Challengers Bangalore’s (RCB) home game against Delhi Daredevils (DD).

The two teams were originally scheduled to play at the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium on May 12 but now that has been moved to Delhi.

RCB’s home game against DD will now be on April 21.

The Qualifier 1 will be held at the Wankhede Stadium on May 22. The Eliminator and Qualifier 2 will take place at the Maharashtra Cricket Association’s International Stadium, Pune on May 23 and 25 respectively.

The final will be played at the Wankhede Stadium on May 27.
