IPL 2024 Schedule: What to Expect from the 17th Edition of the Indian Premier League

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is one of the most popular and lucrative cricket tournaments in the world, featuring some of the best players and teams from India and abroad. The 17th edition of the IPL is set to begin on March 22, 2024, with defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) taking on Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the opening match at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.

The IPL 2024 schedule has been announced only for the first 21 matches, which will be played across 10 cities from March 22 to April 7. The remaining matches will be revealed once the dates of the general elections in India are finalized. The IPL final is expected to be played on May 26, 2024, just five days before the start of the men’s T20 World Cup in the USA and the Caribbean.

The IPL 2024 will also see some major changes in the player rosters, as the mega auction held in December 2023 saw many big names switching teams. The most notable transfer was that of Hardik Pandya, who returned to his former team, the Mumbai Indians (MI), after leading the GT to their maiden title in 2022. Pandya will also captain the MI, replacing Rohit Sharma, who moved to the SRH. Other prominent players who changed teams include Rishabh Pant (from DC to GT), KL Rahul (from PBKS to DC), Rashid Khan (from SRH to LSG), and Ben Stokes (from RR to RCB).

The IPL 2024 promises to be an exciting and competitive tournament, with each team playing a minimum of three matches and a maximum of five in the first 17 days. The fans can expect some high-octane cricket action as the teams vie for the coveted trophy and the prize money of INR 25 crore. The IPL 2024 will also be a platform for the players to showcase their skills and form ahead of the T20 World Cup, which will feature 16 teams and 45 matches.

The IPL 2024 schedule for the first 21 matches is as follows:
