Ranchi will host the second qualifier owing to logistical reasons  •  BCCI

Ranchi will host IPL's second qualifier on May 22 for logistical reasons. Once it was finalised as a Playoff venue, Ranchi's proximity to Kolkata, where the final will be played on May 24, went in its favour.
It is a minor change from the original schedule proposed for the final week of the tournament. Wankhede stadium in Mumbai had been allotted the second qualifier. "We have [now] been informed that we will now host the first qualifier on May 19," Dr PV Shetty, Mumbai Cricket Association joint secretary, said.
Pune will host the eliminator on May 20.
