IPL 2020 match timings
During previous seasons, it was noticed that matches started at 8 pm and went well past midnight. But this time, the games would start at 7:30 pm. The hosts felt that going back home a midnight was quite an issue for the audiences. But hosts have another issue with an early start. It is difficult for audiences living in metro cities to reach stadiums after leaving from office at 6 pm.
