The 4th season of DLF IPL Twenty-Twenty (T20) cricket matches will begin from April 8 in India. The sub continent is already under cricket fever with World cup 2011, which so far reached the semi final stage. Indian Premier League 4 has 10 cricketing franchises that includes the newly selected Cochin Tuskers Kerala and Sahara Pune Warriors. The official TV broadcasting rights of IPL 4 were sold to Sony Entertainment in India. So we can watch IPL 4 live HD telecast in Set MAX channel and their mobile and online streaming partners.
The first IPL 4 match is between Kolkata Knight Riders and Chennai Super Kings, and is scheduled on 8/4/2011 at Chennai from 8PM IST.
