The 2019 season of the Indian Premier League, will be the twelfth season of the IPL, a professional Twenty20 cricket league established by the BCCI in 2007. It will be held from 29 March to 19 May 2019.[1] According to news reports, the tournament could be held in South Africa or the United Arab Emirates due to the Indian general elections.[2][3]

India's opening match at the 2019 Cricket World Cup was postponed from 2 June to 5 June as the BCCI were directed to maintain a mandatory 15-day gap between the conclusion of IPL and India's subsequent international fixture as per Lodha Committee's recommendation.[4]
