I have heard this time IPL match starts at 7 pm instead of 8 pm. Also, day match starts at 3 pm instead of 4 pm.

Note: I am asking about an exact time when players come out on the ground, not considering pre-match program like Extra Innings or Kent Cricket Live.


IPLT20.com clearly shows the match time as 4:00pm IST and 8:00pm IST, so this is the time the match will start.



And from Star Sports TV guide schedule for these matches are:

1 2 3

So, you should tune in at around 3:50pm IST and 7:50pm IST to skip the pre-match program.
