All fans were eagerly waiting for the IPL 2020 schedule to roll out by the end of August but it was pushed further after multiple Chennai Super Kings’ members tested positive for coronavirus. Overcoming all the hurdles, the BCCI finally rolled out the IPL 2020 schedule on Sunday. The much-awaited schedule has as many as 10 afternoon games to give time to the teams to travel.

All matches are slated to take place in Dubai, Sharjah and Abu Dhabi. The afternoon matches are set to begin at 3:30 PM IST while the evening games will start at 7:30 PM IST. As per the tradition, defending champions Mumbai Indians will lock horns with Chennai Super Kings in the season opener.

SRH’s next two matches in September will be against Kolkata Knight Riders and Delhi Capitals on 26th and 29th respectively.
