Schedule of the 12th season of India’s cash-rich tournament Indian Premier League (IPL) is finally out, with the first match being played between defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at M Chinnaswamy Stadium, Chennai. As soon as the schedule for 17 days was out, RCB, taking to Twitter, declared it as war between sambar. RCB tweeted, “A spicy south Indian Derby for starters – but we prefer the sweet sambar…Our VIVO IPL 2019 begins away from Bengaluru on Day 1 ❤ #PlayBold”

CSK also wasn’t behind as responding to RCB’s sweet sambar, Chennai said, “But sambar is always #Yellove in colour no?”. This sambar banter between Super Kings and Royal Challengers is an actual treat for their fans before the two strong teams clash at inaugural game of IPL.

Meanwhile, IPL has announced only 17 days’ fixture and will announce further dates once the Election Commission declares the schedule for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The Indian general elections are scheduled to be held between April and May.
