Indian Premier League 2020 Live Online and Free Air TV Guide


The Indian Premier League, better known as the IPL, is the best and most well-known domestic T20 tournament in the world, and the 2020 edition is shaping up to be one of the best yet. Some of the most in form players on the world stage are set to hit boundaries galore, in a country where cricket is almost a religion. Mumbai Indians will be hoping to win back to back titles, but they will face some stiff opposition across the seven week tournement, where games are played almost every day.

Indian Premier League 2020 TV Guide

The IPL 2020 will be the thirteenth edition of the tournament having been created in 2007 by the Board of Control For Cricket in India (BCCI). The format sees eight teams play each other twice in a round robin style league. The four best teams from that period play in the finals. The top two teams play the first final, known as ‘Qualifier 1’. The winner of that game goes straight through to the Grand Final. The second final is known as the ‘Eliminator’. The winner of that game will face off against the loser of the ‘Qualifier 1’ with the winner of that game going through to face the winner of the ‘Qualifier 1’ in the Indian Premier League Finals. The Mumbai Indians have been the most successful team in IPL history, winning the tournament on three occasions, with Sunil Narine, playing for the Kolkata Knight Riders, being named player of the series. He’ll play for that side once again in 2020, and you can catch all the action when streaming the IPL live.

When: March 30 – May 24 in India

It really is quite scary the amount of money that is thrown around at the auctions leading up to the tournament where team owners look to buy the best players. The highest paid Australian cricket player will be all rounder Pat Cummins. The highest paid player overall, no surprises, is the favourite son of India, Virat Kohli, rated by many as the best cricketer in the world. He will earn a staggering $3.4 Million playing for the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Despite impressive efforts in the Big Bash League, there were several Aussie players that missed out, notably Darcy Short, Shaun Marsh and James Faulkner, with the latter two being T20 specialists. Dan Christian, who has played the IPL in the past, was also overlooked at the auction.

** IPL announces games postponed **

The Indian Premier League has announced that the 2020 IPL Season has been postponed until at least April 15th. The reason for this is the COVID-19 coronavirus, and concerns that arenas and travel may expose players and fans to this community health concern. If any significant new details are made available, this notice will include them and the TV fixtures will be updated.
