Pune Supergiants will play on the same day but their game Sunrisers  Hydervbad has been pushed ahead to a 4.00 PM start on the April 22.
The IPL will be played from April 5 to May 21.
This is not the first time that the IPL schedule has been altered because of external factors. Last year, after a directive from Bombay High Court to the Maharashtra government, a total of 12 matches were shifted out of the drought-hit state. The first half of the 2014 edition and the entire 2009 chapter were held in the United Arab Emirates and South Africa respectively because of the general elections.
