New Delhi: After hosting the first part in the United Arab Emirates, the seventh edition of Indian Premier League will return to India on May 2 with a high-profile clash between past winners Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders in Ranchi. The UAE was awarded the hosting rights of the first 20 matches of IPL starting April 16 due to clash of dates with the general elections. (Adjoining image is for representational purpose only)

The organisers on Thursday released the fixture for the remainder of the 40 games, including the final with all the matches being held in India. Bangladesh was kept as a stand by to host the second leg in case the government declined permission to hold the matches.

A total of 10 cities -- Ranchi, Mumbai, New Delhi, Bangalore, Ahmedabad, Cuttack, Hyderabad, Kolkata, Chennai and Mohali -- will host the remaining 40 matches of IPL 7.
