IPL 2023 Schedule: IPL 2023 Start Date – BCCI focuses on the IPL 2023 schedule. While April 1 is likely the start date, the final is Sunday, May 28. With the WTC Final (World Test Championship Final) kicking off at Oval on June 8, BCCI has to shorten the schedule slightly. The original idea was to play the IPL in a 74-day period. However, IPL 2023 will only last 58 days. The final program will be announced in the first week of February. Follow IPL 2023 LIVE updates on InsideSport.IN.

“We are in the final stages of schedule discussions. It should be out early next month. There will be an IPL GC meeting after the women’s IPL teams are completed. Then we finish the list. For now, the idea is to complete the IPL at the end of May, as the WTC Final is in the 2nd week of June. It should start on April 1. That’s the idea,” a senior BCCI official told InsideSport.

The initial idea was to hold the final in the first week of June with a start on April 1. Since April 1-2 falls on a weekend, BCCI could get off to a good start. The final would have been on June 4. But instead, BCCI has to move the IPL Final date forward a week in preparation for the WTC Final.

IPL 2023 Schedule: Everything you need to know about IPL start and final –

  • BCCI is considering April 1 as the start date for IPL, as it falls on a Saturday.
  • The final is probably on Sunday 28 May.
  • IPL GC will be held in the first week of February to confirm the IPL 2023 schedule.
  • The IPL window was initially for a longer duration.
  • However, due to WTC Final on June 8, BCCI has to shorten the window.
  • In all likelihood, Australian Test regulars will not be available for the IPL playoff stage if they qualify for the WTC final.
  • If India qualifies, some players who are not in the IPL play-offs will be short-matched for the oval final.
  • While Australia has all but confirmed its place in the WTC final, India could come up with a 3-1 or 2-0 victory over Australia in the home series next month.

India are favorites after Australia to make it to the WTC final and they will need some red balls for the mega final against finalist-elect Australia.

If India confirms their spot in the WTC finals, the Test regulars who will not be part of the IPL 2023 Playoffs will get a short camp. Australia will similarly withdraw all Test regulars from the IPL 2023 at least 10 days before the WTC final.

“There is a possibility that some Australian players will miss the play-off stage. We are in talks with CA to have minimal impact. But we also understand their point if they qualify for the WTC Final. But at the moment it is nothing final as the WTC finalists are also not confirmed. We will have a concrete idea after the Australia series,” said the BCCI official.
