IPL 2018: Kings XI Punjab to begin their home leg from 8th April
Kings XI Punjab have a small change in their home schedule for the upcoming IPL as they will play their first three home matches at the iconic Mohali stadium. Rest of the four matches will be played at the Holkar stadium in Indore.
Punjab’s initial matches were scheduled to be played in Indore, but logistical difficulties forced a change in the calendar.
Another change that has been added to the schedule is that Mohali was initially asked to host four matches, but the crowd will now have to be satisfied with just three home matches at the PCA stadium.
Kings XI will host Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals, Kolkata Knight Riders and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Indore.
While Delhi Daredevils, Sunrisers Hyderabad and Chennai Super Kings will play their away matches against the Kings at the PCA stadium in Mohali.
Kings XI Punjab CEO Satish Menon said:
“It is rather unfortunate that the dates had to be shuffled so late in the day. However, external difficulties always have to be worked around. Despite the unforeseen circumstances, we’re rather excited by the prospect of starting off in Mohali. At the end of the day, both venues are home to us.”
