The Indian Premier League has released a full schedule of the round robin league matches of the twelfth edition of the tournament starting from March 23 till May 5. 

As usual, there will be a total of 56 matches that will be played during the six-week tourney. 

The defending champions Chennai will kick off the season against Virat Kohli-led Bangalore team. 

Among the round robin matches, there are 12 afternoon starts (4 pm matches) on the weekends. 

The IPL operations team has ensured that no team plays their home matches at the alternate venues as the general elections will be held in seven phases from April 12 to May 19.

Two-time champions Kolkata Knight Riders will play all their IPL home matches at the Eden Gardens despite West Bengal going into polls during all seven phases of general elections. 

Even Kings XI Punjab, who had played a few of their home matches in Indore during earlier editions, will play all their matches in Mohali.
