Indian premier League- IPL

IPL 2024 Complete Schedule: The 17th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2023) action is likely to start on March 23. Although the BCCI is yet to release the schedule and fixtures, the tournament is set to clash with the upcoming general elections.

A total of 70 league matches and four playoff matches will be held including the two qualifiers, the eliminator and the final.

The most successful teams in the Indian Premier League have been the Chennai Super Kings and the Mumbai Indians, who have won five titles each.

Both teams have at one point won back-to-back titles and have become a staple in the IPL – having been included as part of the original teams in the tournament from the beginning.

The IPL auction is an integral part of the process before the season officially begins. It’s a chance for teams to tweak their teams, release any players, and make new additions.

It’s also an opportunity to see the eyewatering wealth that governs the IPL as the respective owners of each team face off for some of the most sought-after names in cricket.

Here are some of the key changes each team made for the 2024 season:

Chennai Super Kings

The biggest name at Chennai Super Kings is, of course, the captain – Mahendra Dhoni. But one of the newest additions for Chennai is Daryl Mitchell, as the team splurged £1.3m on a New Zealand international.

Delhi Capitals

If you’re an England cricket fan, you’ll want to keep your eye on young batter Harry Brook, who switched sides from Sunrisers Hyderabad.

Gujarat Titans

Gujarat Titans snapped up Australian left-arm quick Spencer Johnson for £944,000. Gujarat also brought in the veteran Indian pacer Umesh Yadav.

Kolkata Knight Riders

Kolkata Knight Riders made a record-breaking bid for the Australian pace bowler Mitchell Starc. The 33-year-old makes a comeback to the IPL after an eight-year hiatus.

Lucknow Super Giants

David Willey, who retired from international cricket after the recent 50-over World Cup in India, joined the Super Giants

Mumbai Indians

One of the wealthiest sides in the league added eight new players to their roster, including South African bowler Gerald Coetzee and Sri Lankan international – Dilshan Madushanka.

Punjab Kings

Punjab Kings snapped up English bowler Chris Woakes in the auction. They also made a valuable buy in the form of Harshal Patel – the highest wicket-taker in the 2021 season.

Rajasthan Royals

Rajasthan Royals secured Rovman Powell’s signature after a fierce bidding war with the Kolkata Knight Riders. Dehli Capitals released Powell, but the Jamaican cricketer’s fortunes changed in a lucrative deal.

Royal Challengers Banglore

Royal Challengers Banglore brought all-rounder Tom Curran. The player did suffer a knee injury, which saw the end of his time in the Big Bash League in Australia in January.
