VIVO IPL 2016 fixtures revised


The Indian Premier League Governing Council today announced that Vizag will be the neutral venue for Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiants home matches post May 1, 2016 for the 2016 VIVO IPL season.

The IPL GC extended gratitude towards the Government of Rajasthan and thanked the Rajasthan Sports Minister Mr. Gajendra Singh Khimsar for the efforts to get the Sawai Mansingh Cricket Stadium ready for hosting the matches. However, due to paucity of time and uncertainty surrounding whether the matches will be held or not, the IPL GC decided that Vizag will be neutral venue for both Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiants.

Both the IPL franchises have expressed satisfaction and are keen to embrace Dr. Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium as their home ground for the upcoming matches.

The above-mentioned changes have resulted in change of timing for two games on May 15, 2016. The Kings XI Punjab vs. Sunrisers Hyderabad match at Mohali will now be played at 4 PM IST and the Mumbai Indians vs. Delhi Daredevils will be played in Vizag at 8 PM IST.
