The IPL 2019 is preponed due to the Lok Sabha elections scheduled around the same time. However, the polling dates are yet to be declared. BCCI in a statement said that once the elections dates are announced, they will prepare a schedule for the remainder of the season working with the local authorities.

“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,” read the statement.

The same situation had risen in 2009 and 2014, where the IPL was shifted to South Africa (completely) and UAE (partially) respectively. But, this year the board in consultation with the CoA decided to schedule it in India itself.
