Normally the evening matches in the IPL tend to start at 8 pm and a lot of times we have seen matches finish well after midnight. This is not great as it can be inconvenient for the fans who are visiting the stadium and as well as for the viewers watching from home.

IPL playoffs to start 30 minutes earlier

According to the playing rules in IPL, each innings should last 90 minutes each including two strategic timeouts and 20 minutes mid-innings break. Hence a match should ideally not go more than 205 minutes. But matches in this IPL has been going past that.

Now it has been decided that all the four matches in the playoffs will start 30 minutes earlier which means the games will start at 7:30 pm. Hence the toss will take place at 7 pm.
