IPL 2023 Schedule: Date, Time, Fixtures, Teams, Venues and Points Table

The much-awaited Indian Premier League (IPL) is back with its 16th edition, IPL 2023, after a year’s hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has released the official IPL 2023 schedule, which starts on March 31, 2023. IPL 2023 is scheduled to be played across ten cities and features ten teams, with 74 matches to be played over six weeks.

Here is all you need to know about the IPL 2023 Schedule

The upcoming edition of IPL will see ten participating franchises compete for the coveted IPL trophy in a 74-match season. The defending champions, Gujarat Titans, will take on the Chennai Super Kings in the curtain-raiser at the Narendra Modi Stadium on March 31.

Unlike the last edition, which saw the matches played across just four Indian cities due to the pandemic, the upcoming edition will see the action taking place all across the country, just like in the pre-pandemic era.

Introducing the Impact Player Rule

The BCCI has also introduced a new rule called the ‘Impact Player Rule’ ahead of the upcoming edition, which could be a game changer in the tournament. According to this rule, teams will be allowed to select one player from their squad who will have the power to earn double the points in a match. The impact player can be changed after every game, and it will be interesting to see how this rule affects the game and team strategies.

Media Rights

After an intense bidding war for the media rights for 2023-2027, the media rights were sold for a staggering INR 48,390 crore, making the IPL the second most-valued sporting event in the world after the NFL. The Walt Disney Company India-owned Star continued its association with the competition after bagging the television rights for the Indian subcontinent for INR 23,575 crore, while Viacom18 surprised a fair few after clinching the digital rights for INR 23,758 crore.

IPL 2023 Mini Auction

Ahead of the 16th edition of the tournament, the IPL 2023 mini auction saw the team spend a collective amount of INR 167 crore on a total of 80 players. England’s Sam Curran became the most expensive player in the history of the competition after Punjab Kings acquired his services for INR 18.50 crore.
