MUMBAI: Indian Premier League chairman Brijesh Patel has confirmed that the 13th edition of the IPL will be played around the September 19 to November 8 window and that the same has been communicated to the franchises.

The BCCI had initially proposed September 26 to November 8 as the window but decided to advance the start by a week in order to reduce afternoon games. Lesser afternoon games, likely to start at 3.30 pm IST (2pm UAE) will be better suited for cricketers as well as broadcasters to ensure lesser fatigue and more revenue.
