IPL 2024: Date, Time, Streaming Details, Format, New Rules, Schedule, Odds, and Prediction

IPL 2024

Get ready to watch the preoccupation in the IPL 2024, where the new season opens. We are vibrantly following the CSK fans club, and not only all well-admired teams are participating to view the proximity of sight. The 2024 Indian Premier League, also known as IPL 17, is branded as TATA. IPL 2024 will be the 17th edition of the Indian Premier League, a right-to-vote Twenty20 Cricket League in India, conducted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India. The tournament will feature ten teams and will take place from March 22, 2024, to May 26, 2024.

In IPL 2024, which starts with the 17th season of this year, the total number of league matches is 74, and ten teams will be involved. The 2024 season curtain-raiser will witness a blockbuster clash as the reigning champions of the IPL will start on March 22, when Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s Chennai Super Kings will take on Royal Challengers Bangalore at M.A. Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. IPL 2024 will be played in a double-round-robin format. BCCI is planning to establish IPL 2024 on March 22. The schedule will be announced in two halves. The schedule for the first half was announced, and then the schedule for the other half is likely to be announced after the announcement of general election dates.

After an intense season, with MS Dhoni-led CSK winning five championship titles. Two teams—the Mumbai Indians—whose last title came to take were victories in 2013, 2015, 2017, and 2019. CSK comes into the 2010–2011, 2018–2021, and 2023 titles. The 2024 season will see plenty of intriguing narratives. Rishabh Pant making his much-awaited return from injury for the Delhi Capitals, Hardik Pandya taking over the captaincy of the Mumbai Indians franchise from Rohit Sharma after MI acquired his services in the off-season from the Gujarat Titans, and Shubman Gill taking over the reins of the Gujarat franchise. In a mind-boggling turn of events, Devon Conway had been ruled out of IPL 2024, and Australian all-rounder Pat Cummins had been made the captain of Sunrises Hyderabad.

Cricket Outright Odds

Format of the IPL 2024

  • In this stage, the top two teams compete with each other in a match titled “Qualifier 1”, as do the remaining two teams in a match titled “Eliminator”.
  • While the winner of Qualifier 1 straight-out qualified for the final match, the losing team got another chance to specify for the final match by playing the winning team of the elimination match; this match is titled Qualifier 2.
  • The winner of this subsequent Qualifier 2 match moved on to the final match. The team that won the final series was high-crowned the Indian Premier League winners.
  • Thus, each team will face other teams twice during the league stage. In the end, the top four teams in the points table will qualify for the winner-take-all all.

New Rules 

Bowlers can now bowl two bouncers per over, as trailed in India’s domestic T20 tournament, the 2023–24 Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.

Prediction:

Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) vs. Rajasthan Royals (RR)

The Kolkata Knight Riders are entering into the face-off between the Rajasthan Royals in round 31 of the IPL 2024.

  • Date: April 16, 2024, at 7.30 p.m.
  • Venue: Eden Gardens, Kolkata, West Bengal.

Previous Rivalry:

KKR are unlikely to make any changes to their game. They kept Rinku Singh out of the game as they opted to bowl first and could do the same if they bowled first again. Rinku Singh will come into this match. The move to send Sunil Narine to the top has worked for KKR. Narine has come in and decimated the bowlers with swashbuckling stroke play. Narine has scored 167 runs at a hit rate of over 180. Also, he is KKR’s best bowler as well. This team has been ruthless. They have played five matches, winning four and losing just one game against CSK in the IPL 2024.

Rajasthan Royals, on the other hand, left out R. Ashwin and Yashasvi Jaiswal from the previous game due to injury. Samson’s toss revealed that the injuries were not serious, so we expect to return. Sanju Samson has been magnificent in the tournament. He has led from the front and scored essential runs for the team in tough situations. Samson has scored 264 runs in six innings up to now. The Rajasthan Royals have been splendid. They are placed at the top of the table with five wins in six games. Both teams will have better chances of winning the game.

Gujarat Titans (GT) vs. Delhi Capitals (DC)

In round 32, the Gujarat Titans and Delhi Capitals meet up to discuss the conflict in the IPL 2024.

  • Date: April 17, 2024, at 7.30 p.m.
  • Venue: Narendra Modi Stadium, Gujarat.

Previous Rivalry:

The Gujarat Titans have fared decently in the 2024 season, with a few resounding wins and hard-fought defeats. The GT batting has emerged as a major issue, with Capitan Shubman Gill and Sai Sudharasan scoring runs at a consistent clip. On the bowling front, Gujarat has performed better, with Rashid Khan rediscovering his form while Noor Ahmad and Mohit Sharma have produced a few match-winning performances. GT has a home advantage in this match and is likely to win.

The Delhi Capitals have had a dismal start to their 2024 campaign, but their recent win against the Lucknow Super Giants has produced many positives. The batting saw major upgrades with Jake Fraser-McGurk’s sublime hitting in the middle overs and Rishabh Pant’s run-scoring form. The bowling also received a vital boost with the return of wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav, who has been the linchpin of the DC attack. Hence, the Gujarat Titans will follow the same strategy to hold on to a triumph in their forthcoming matches.

Punjab Kings (PBKS) vs. Mumbai Indians (MI)

The Punjab Kings are joining up in the square-off between the Mumbai Indians in round 33 of the IPL 2024.

  • Date: April 18, 2024, at 7.30 p.m.
  • Venue: Maharaja Yadavindra Singh Cricket Stadium, Tira, Punjab.

Previous Rivalry:

PBKS side Shikhar Dhawan captain, one of those teams that could never win the IPL title. There is only a delay of three days until the start of the tournament, and the team’s preparations are almost complete. The team has tough players at every batting and bowling position, along with strong options. If a player is out of the league due to injury, the team will not face many problems compared to other teams. There is a lack of consistency among foreign players like Bairstow and Livingston. The middle order of the team is weak. Not only this, Jitesh Sharma has not been able to prove himself in the role of finisher. Most of the players on the team are new. Who may come under pressure? There is no huge name in the spin bowling attack of the team.

Meanwhile, the MI team, led by Jasprit Bumrah, the pace bowling spearhead, is set to make a comeback after missing the 2023 IPL due to a back injury. He will be supported by Gerald Coetzee and Dilshan Madushanka, both of whom will be stunning during the 2023 World Cup. Jason Behrendorff adds quality pace and swings to the attack. Tim David aims to provide the finishing touch. MI lacks spinners who consistently take wickets. While they have a strong pace attack, the absence of a potent Indian spinner could be a concern. Overall, MI’s strengths lie in their fast-bowling arsenal and power-hitting capabilities, but addressing the spin department remains crucial for their success in IPL 2024. As a result, the Mumbai Indians will garb on a victory over PBKS.
