The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season is expected to begin on April 2 in Chennai.
According to sources, the following season's fixtures have not been finalised, but the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has informally communicated to key stakeholders that the IPL 2022 campaign would most likely begin on April 2 in Chennai.
With the inclusion of the two new teams, the number of games will increase to 15. Therefore, the BCCI has speculated internally that the season would last more than 60 days, with the final matches scheduled for the first weekend of June.

The Chennai Super Kings won the IPL 2022 in the UAE, earning them the hosting rights for the first game, but there has been no formal announcement.
Earlier, in his statement at CSK's fourth IPL title-win celebration event, BCCI secretary Jay Shah declared that the IPL will return to India following a full season in the UAE in 2020 and a half-season in 2021.
