modi explaining

In further confirmation of South Africa being IPL’s new destination this year, the IPL organizers released the schedule of matches in the 59 match extravaganza.
Starting a week later than originally planned, the IPL gets underway on April the 18th and set to conclude on the 24th of May. The matches have been scheduled across eight cities, in obvious line of creating home away from home for each of the eight franchisees.
Also keeping the Indian stronghold in Durban, Kingsmead has been awarded as many as sixteen matches with twelve matches alloted for Pretoria at Centurion.
Other venues include Port Elizabeth, East London, Kimberley, Bloemfontein, Johannesburg (which will host one semi final as well as the final) and Cape Town which will also double up as the venue for the opening ceremony and match.
