The season, featuring a total of 70 league matches, will start on March 26 with the opener at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

The final game of the league stage will be played between Sunrisers Hyderabad and Punjab Kings on May 22 at the same venue.

But the BCCI, in a statement, said that "the schedule for the IPL 2022 Playoffs and the TATA IPL 2022 final to be played on 29th May will be announced later."

It's widely speculated that the IPL 2022 playoffs, probably starting May 24, will be played at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

The IPL has now become a ten-team affair, with Gujarat Titans and Lucknow Super Giants joining the bandwagon, and the new season will feature as many as 12 double-headers with the first match starting at 3:30 PM IST. All evening matches will start at 7:30 PM IST.

The first double-header will be on March 27, at Brabourne where the Delhi Capitals will face Mumbai Indians. The DY Patil Stadium, also in Mumbai, will host the clash between Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore at night.

All the league matches will be played in Maharashtra, in Mumbai and Pune at four venues - Wankhede Stadium, Brabourne Stadium, DY Patil Stadium and MCA Stadium.

As reported earlier, the IPL 2022 will witness a different format. The ten teams have been seeded according to their past performances and have been divided into two virtual groups.

Here's what the groups look like:

Group A: Mumbai Indians (MI), Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR), Rajasthan Royals (RR), Delhi Capitals (DC), Lucknow Super Giants (LSG)
Group B: Chennai Super Kings (CSK), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Punjab Kings (PBKS), Gujarat Titans (GT)

The 10 teams will play a total of 14 league matches (designated seven home matches and seven away matches), followed by the four playoff matches. Each team will play five teams twice and the remaining four teams only once (two home and two away).
