Countdown To IPL 2019: Five Best Bowling Figures In IPL History

The dates for the General Elections 2019 might not be out but the schedule for the first two weeks (17 matches) of Indian Premier League (IPL) season 12 has been announced. The first match will be between played between Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers on 23rd March at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. With neutral venues expected to replace certain fixtures in the remainder of the season, the schedule for the matches after the first 17 fixtures is going to be revealed after Lok Sabha 2019 election dates are announced.

The BCCI has said that that they will address all the issues for the first two weeks while preparing a schedule for the remainder of the season after the polling dates are announced. Hence, the schedule for matches taking place from 23rd March 2019 to 05th April 2019 has been revealed by the BCCI.



17 matches will be played in the IPL during the 2-week period and all the games will be played in India. All the 8 franchises will play their matches in their home stadiums. All the teams will play four matches during that period with Delhi Capitals (DC) and RCB playing five. While the other teams will play 2 home and 2 away matches, DC will be playing 3 home matches and RCB will play 3 away matches.

It was heavily rumoured that the IPL could take place outside India due the Lok Sabha Elections. There were places like South Africa and UAE being considered to host this season of the IPL. However, the first 17 matches are due to take place in India as announced by the BCCI. If the election dates clash with the IPL then it is extremely likely that the second part of the tournament could take place outside of India. In 2009, the whole season of the IPL was hoted in South Africa while in 2014 a part of the tournament took place in UAE.

For the upcoming edition, Delhi Capitals have strengthened the middle-order batting by investing a lion's share on Colin Ingram (Rs 6.4 crore), besides spending Rs 2 crore each to bag services of all-rounder Hanuma Vihari and Sherane Rutherford.

It also got veteran India pacer and local boy Ishant Sharma for Rs 1.10 crore. India discard Axar Patel was then bought for Rs 5 crore.



For the 2019 edition, Delhi retained 14 players and traded in 1 player (Shikhar Dhawan from Sunrisers Hyderabad).

The retained players are: Shreyas Iyer, Rishabh Pant, Prithvi Shaw, Amit Mishra, Avesh Khan, Harshal Patel, Rahul Tewatia, Jayant Yadav, Manjot Kalra, Colin Munro, Trent Boult, Chris Morris, Kagiso Rabada and Sandeep Lamichhane.

In the 12th edition of IPL, fans could witness the old charm of Delhi as several quality players were retained and bought by the franchise. Last year, Delhi finished at the bottom, losing nine matches out of 14.

Liam Livingstone Joins Rajasthan Royals Ahead Of IPL 2019

The Rajasthan Royals have shown their faith in the future of English T20 cricket, after successfully signing Lancashire’s, Liam Livingstone in the 2019 Indian Premier League auction.

Liam Livingstone has been signed by the Royals for 50 Lakhs the equivalent of £56,000. The 25-year-old England Lions regular is considered one of the future stars for his country in all three formats of the game and has already earned two caps for England in T20s against South Africa after exploding onto the scene in 2017.

At such a young age, Livingstone captained Lancashire to the semi-finals of the T20 Blast as he made 318 runs in seven innings including a maiden T20 century off just 49 balls against Derbyshire. He also hit five half-centuries in List A cricket in 2018. He has now stepped back from the captaincy of the Red Rose to focus on his batting exploits.

Livingstone will join a whole host of England stars at the Rajasthan Royals including England international and fellow Lancashire teammate, Jos Buttler, as well as well as all-rounder Ben Stokes and last season’s top wicket taker for the Royals, Jofra Archer who is a future England prospect.

Rajasthan Royals Lead Owner Manoj Badale couldn’t hide his joy at securing the batting talent as part of the team.



He said: "Liam is a player we were really keen to get. Developing younger players has always been an integral part of Rajasthan Royals vision. Players like Liam Livingstone and Jofra Archer will have plenty of opportunities to play on the biggest stage, learning from some of the world’s best.

“England has one of the best pool of players coming through and I hope that the England fans will keep a close eye on Liam’s progress and support the Royals throughout IPL 2019.”

A dramatic auction saw the Royals improve their team ahead of another tilt at the title they won in the IPL’s inaugural season. The franchise added the following players to its team: Oshane Thomas, Jaydev Unadkat, Varun Aaron, Shashank Singh, Shubham Ranjane, Manan Vohra, Riyan Parag, Ashton Turner and of course Liam Livingstone.
