Delhi Daredevils will play three home games at Raipur, though initially the home ground Feroz Shah Kotla will be considered. Should the DDCA fail to get the required clearances, it might shift the games to Indore. Mumbai Indians, Rising Pune Supegiants, Kolkata Knight Riders, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore teams will play all their games in their home centers. The schedule for IPL was postponed due to Mahashivratri on Monday and was to be announced on Tuesday, but it was eventually announced on Thursday night.
