IPL 2018: Mumbai Indians to host Chennai Super Kings in season opener

IPL 2018 fixtures announced- Chennai Super Kings face Mumbai Indians in opener on April 7

Chennai's first home match will be against Kolkata Knight Riders on April 10.

The tournament has been spanned over 51 days and will be played across nine different venues with the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai hosting the final on 27th May.

(G.N.S) DT.15 MUMBi Indian Premier League the world's most prestigious and cash-rich Twenty20 tournament, is back again with its 11th edition.

In addition to the home bases of the eight franchises, Indore will be the ninth venue, playing host to the home games of Kings XI.

Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) Receiving Somewhat Positive Media Coverage, Analysis Finds
The firm's price to book was 8.84, which can be compared with current price to get idea about under or overvalue of stock. Rosenblum Silverman Sutton S F Inc bought 2,975 shares as the company's stock declined 3.49% while stock markets rallied.

The venues for Qualifier 1, Eliminator and Qualifier 2 to be played on 22nd, 23rd and 25th May respectively are yet to be finalised. The double headers timings remained unchanged, while the opening ceremony will take place in Mumbai on April 6. Rajasthan Royals, also making their return after a two-year suspension, will play their first game against Sunrisers Hyderabad on April 9. There was speculation regarding a change in match timings for the upcoming season, but that has been laid to rest with the usual timings being retained.

The broadcaster had recommended that the second match of the day start at 7pm instead of the earlier 8pm, while pushing 4pm match to a 5.30pm start.

According to a PTI report, a section of franchises who are 50 per cent stakeholders in the IPL revenue model, expressed their grievances with the change in timings as it was done without consulting them. The main reason behind that was because the Maharashtra Cricket Association (MCA) sent a letter to IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla, demanding the two play-off matches be played in Pune, home of last year's runner-up Rising Pune Supergiant.

While 12 matches will have a 4.00pm start, 48 matches will begin at 8.00pm. The three-time runners-up will play their first home game on April 13.
