After the long wait on the venue announcement for the Rajasthan Royals (RR), the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) finally revealed that two of the franchise’s home games will be played at the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati.
The Barsapara Cricket Stadium in Guwahati will play host to two home games of RR in April. They will now play Delhi Capitals and Kolkata Knight Riders on April 5th and April 9th, 2020 respectively in Guwahati.

Both games will have an 8 PM IST start. The schedule for the two matches is as below.
The stadium last hosted T20I match India vs Sri Lanka in January before rain played a spoil-sport as the match was announced without a ball being bowled.
The IPL 2020 season will kick-start from March 29th, 2020 with Chennai Super Kings taking on Mumba Indians. The Rajasthan-based franchise will begin their IPL 2020 campaign on April 2nd, 2020 against Chennai Super Kings at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
