DY Patil Stadium IPL records: Dr DY Patil Sports Academy has hosted a total of 17 matches across three IPL seasons in the past.
Punjab Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore, two of the three IPL teams to have not won a title despite playing since the inaugural season, will face each other in their IPL 2022 season opener tomorrow. The first double-header day of this season will see Punjab and Bangalore locking horns on a Sunday night in Navi Mumbai.
Dr DY Patil Sports Academy, commonly known as DY Patil Syadium, will be hosting the first of its 20 IPL 2022 league matches. Yet to host an international match, DY Patil Stadium had hosted 17 matches across the first three IPL seasons in India.
Been allotted a T20 match after 11 years, it will be interesting to see how the surface behaves at this venue especially when it is scheduled to host these many matches within a two-month period. Readers must note that all the 10 teams will be playing four IPL 2022 league matches at the DY Patil Stadium.
