Match fixtures and complete time-table of IPL 10 goes viral on WhatsApp; is this schedule official?

The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017 is still a months away, but the buzz around the most awaited cricketing league has already picked up pace.

The popular messaging app, WhatsApp is flooded with IPL 2017 complete time-table and match fixtures. According to the viral forwarded WhatsApp message, IPL 2017 is scheduled to begin on April 9, 2017 and will be played till May 29, 2017.

It also informs that the first match will be played between Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiants on April 9, 2017. Though, the authenticity of this VIVO IPL 2017 complete time-table being an official schedule is yet to be established.

There is a discrepancy in the opening match of the tournament as well as IPL 10 finale dates from what was announced earlier by the IPL chairman, Rajeev Shukla. Shukla earlier has informed that the 10th edition of Indian Premier League may begin from April 5, 2017, while this message on IPL 2017 match fixtures states the tournament to commence on April 9, 2017.

Also, the given IPL 10 schedule becomes more skeptical as the opening game does not feature defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad and instead, has Mumbai Indians and Rising Pune Supergiants playing the inaugural match of 2017 IPL tournament.
