IPL 2011 Cricket Schedule

The fourth IPL season commences on 8th April 2011 with 10 cricket teams ready to smash their way through the schedule to try and make it to the final on 28th May 2011. We bring you the schedule of this exciting and thrilling tournament of cricket.

The Indian Premier League (IPL) cricket tournament for 2011 starts on the 8th April 2011. After the huge buzz of India winning the 2011 ICC World Cup, cricket fever is still high in India, so the timing of the IPL could not be any better.

The crowds are ready for a spectacular tournament with 74 matches taking place over 51 days. There are 10 teams participating in the tournament. The teams will be divided into two groups of five each, but there will be one combined points table. The teams will play the other teams in their group on a home-away basis. Each IPL team will play one league match each against four teams of other group and two more on home or away basis against the fifth team selected randomly.

The top two teams in the points table will meet in the first playoff (A). The winners of Game A will straightaway enter the final. The second playoff will be between the teams finishing third and fourth in the standings. The losers will be out of the championship and the winners will play the losers of Game A for a place in the final.

The schedule is a hectic one and no doubt it will have some impact on the players, especially, those that played in the ICC World Cup. Interestingly, the schedule was revised in view of the assembly elections in Assam, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, West Bengal and Puducherry.
