However, Indore will get benefit from the arrangements as they now have four matches in their kitty .

The reason for this change is because the Chandigarh airport will remain closed from May 12-31 owing to renovation work .

“There were logistical difficulties that teams would have encountered had KXIP played their home games in Mohali in May . Therefore the IPL Governing Council has decided that the dates will be swapped and Indore will now host all their matches in May . ” acting BCCI president and IPL governing council member CK Khanna told PTI on Sunday .
