Previously GMR group was sole owner.This year there are two joint owners having stakes. GMR group and JSW (Jindal) group. JSW were keen to change name.


Before IPL was played in SA and UAE as well. Some officials were in SA last month to review the chance of playing IPL in SA in 2019 if the elections make it tough to hold IPL in India again.

Can't believe a lot of those names still keep franchisees interested.

In the ongoing options today there have been some good buys and some very bad buys.

The 2019 edition of the IPL will take place entirely in India, and will start on March 23, the BCCI said on Tuesday. The venue had been the subject of speculation given that the dates clash with the general elections, which are expected to take place in April-May. However, a BCCI release said the date and venue had been decided on by the Committee of Administrators after discussions with federal and state officials.

It is likely that the full IPL schedule will be out in early February. In addition to the home bases of the eight franchises, around four to six additional grounds have been shortlisted as back-up. Once the Election Commission of India announces the final dates for the polls, the IPL will consider if any of these venues would need changing.

Although the IPL has not announced the date for the final, it is likely to be between May 12 and 15. As per norm the defending champion gets the rights to host the tournament opener and the final. So Chennai will get both those key matches. More clarity on the situation is expected once the poll dates in the city are made public.

Starts next Saturday. CSK and RCB to play the opener. Auctions gave the franchisees some chance to fill up the weak spots.

As of now it seems as if this years tournament will not be on UK TV. Sky have just confirmed they aren't showing it - still possible that another broadcaster will do a last minute deal.
Odd thing is Sky signed a "multi-year" IPL arrangement just last year!

Someone tweeted that the absence of the IPL from the schedules will allow Sky to show more county cricket - I bet they don't.

Strange one

Viewership figures from the UK will surely plummet to almost zero
