THE best domestic T20 tournament is underway with the world’s best cricketers gathered in Asia for the Indian Premier League.
This year marks the 10th edition of the hard-hitting, fast-paced competition in India.
Here is all you need to know about the event, including how to watch it.
When is the Indian Premier League?
The 2017 IPL began on Wednesday April 5 and will run until Sunday May 21.
It will be played at cricket venues all across India – not just the home cities for the eight competing teams.
How many matches are there and what time do they start?
There are 60 matches in total including the play-offs in May.
Most of the matches begin at 8pm in India, which is 3.30pm for people in the UK.
There are, though, the odd double headers with two games in a day, in which case one will be on at 11.30am BST.
