There is very good news for the fans of IPL. Viewers have been waiting for the 15th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022) for a long time. It is being told that this time IPL is starting on 26 March (Saturday) and it will be played in 4 grounds in Pune and Mumbai. Most importantly, spectators are allowed into the stadiums during the match.
Initially, only 40 percent of the total capacity of the stadium will be able to watch the match. If the situation of Covid-19 remains under control and the cases come down, then the number of viewers can be increased later.
