In a first, the IPL will see two games concurrently, which means both the games will start at 7:30 PM IST. Usually a double header sees one afternoon and one evening game; however, the schedule has been tweaked. The BCCI confirmed that the games will start at the same time. It hasn’t revealed the reason behind this change. “In a first for the IPL, the last two league matches before the VIVO IPL 2021 Playoffs will be played concurrently. On the last day of the league stage (08.10.2021) of the ongoing season, instead of having one afternoon match and one evening match, two matches (SRH v MI and RCB v DC) will be played simultaneously at 7.30 PM IST (6.00 PM GST),” it stated in the press release.

Here’s the BCCI release:

The Governing Council of the Indian Premier League in its meeting on Tuesday took the following key decisions:

1.     The IPL Media Rights tender for the cycle 2023-2027 will be released immediately after the appointment of two new IPL teams which is scheduled to be announced on 25th October 2021.

2.     In a first for the IPL, the last two league matches before the VIVO IPL 2021 Playoffs will be played concurrently. On the last day of the league stage (08.10.2021) of the ongoing season, instead of having one afternoon match and one evening match, two matches (SRH v MI and RCB v DC) will be played simultaneously at 7.30 PM IST (6.00 PM GST).
