The final of this tournament to be held between 10 teams will be played in May. The BCCI has finalized the entire schedule of the tournament and it is expected to be released in the next week.
Information about the IPL to be held this year has started coming to the fore. In the same month, the pre-tournament mega auction was successfully held in Bangalore.
