The current broadcasters, Star Sports requested BCCI to prepone the matches by 30 minutes – that is, to start afternoon games from 3:30 PM and evening games from 7:30 PM. This was done to optimize monetization, as Star Sports claimed that preponing the games will help get extra 30 minutes of prime time slot. “BCCI’s preferred start times for double-headers being 4 pm and 8 pm Indian Standard Time,” the board said in an official communication.

However, with Star’s deal set to expire at the end of the ongoing season, BCCI are willing to switch back to the original timings. Meanwhile, Friday (May 20) happens to be the last date for interested parties to buy ITT documents for bidding for the media rights.
