Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019 is a T20 cricket tournament organised by the Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI). IPL 2019 is the only international T20 cricket tournament where Indian professional cricketers are allowed to participate. IPL 2019 will feature some of the world's best T20 cricketers, although not all of them will be a part of this year's IPL due to the upcoming Cricket World Cup 2019 that is scheduled to be held in the United Kingdom. T20 cricket pits two teams of eleven players each against each other, where each innings has 120 deliveries. IPL 2019 will last for almost two months and was kicked off on March 23, 2019.
