Defending champions Mumbai Indians will face two-time winners Chennai Super Kings in the opening match of the Indian Premier League (IPL) at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai on 7 April.

The much-anticipated final between the winner of Qualifier 1 and the winner of Qualifier 2 will be played at Wankhede Stadium on 27 May.

Fans in Chennai and Jaipur will get their share of the IPL frenzy as MA Chidambaram Stadium and the Sawai Mansingh Stadium will host home matches of Chennai Super Kings and Rajasthan Royals respectively.

Kings XI Punjab will play three home matches in Indore and the other four home matches in Mohali.

The IPL governing council had last month accepted the broadcaster Star Sports' request to shift the timings of the matches. The broadcaster had recommended that the second match of the day start at 7 pm instead of the earlier 8 pm, while pushing the 4 pm match to a 5:30 pm start.

However, a section of franchises, who are 50 percent stakeholders in the IPL revenue model, expressed their grievances with the change in timings as it was done without consulting them.

Here’s a look at the complete IPL 11 schedule.
