As per the BCCI official, “The idea is to finish the home-and-away fixtures as much as possible so that towards the latter half if we need to juggle things and pick neutral venues we can do it. It’s already late and the franchises will have to figure out the logistics and travel plans”.

If the BCCI is enforced to postpone the first phase, then too, it will make an effort and conclude the majority of the home-and-away matches.

The statement from the officials on the Indian Premier League website states, “This is still subject to the announcement of Lok Sabha 2019 election dates. Once the election dates are released we will address any issues with the first two weeks and also prepare a schedule for the remainder of the season working with the local authorities around the polling dates”.
