The money making machine in Cricket world lately, Lalit Modi, the IPL commissioner has already shared out the plans for 3rd Season of Indian Premier League.
Check the IPL 3 Schedule for all the matches details.
Its starting from march 12th, 2010 and would run for more than a month, till April 25th, 2010 ending just 5 days before the start of ICC Twenty20 championship, so Indians again would lose it with all the tired players coming out after the IPL season. This tournament will include 60 games in total.
Nagpur, Visakhapatnam, Ahmedabad and Dharamsala are the new venues, which would be hosting some of the matches of Mumbai Indians, Deccan Chargers, Rajasthan Royals and Kings XI Punjab, respectively.
And yessss.. Hyderabad the place to open the IPL season, i would be surely going for that(only if there is not terror threat at that time). And Bangalore is going to host both the Semi-final games. Of course, its Vijay Mallya.. he could host the final too, but the venue for finals is still undecided.
For the players, Indian and foreign players who are into International cricket, will be selected through auctions. And the domestic Indian players will be paid in between 9-20 Lakh Indian rupees for the tournament.
So the entertainment starting soon! My favorite home team Deccan Chargers to start the tournament against Kolkata Knight Riders. Should be an unexpected one, as always happens in IPL.
