IPL 2024 So Far… So Good

The 17th season of IPL kicked off on 22nd of March, 2024. The first match took place between The King Kohli and Chennai’s adopted son MS Dhoni… no, wait, as we all know that Virat Kohli is no longer the captain of RCB so we have to do a little change.

Before we go ahead, CSK delivered heartbreaking news to their fans, announcing that MS Dhoni will no longer serve as captain, with Ruturaj Gaikwad taking over the reins.

Hardik Pandya departed from the Gujarat Titans and returned to his home team, the Mumbai Indians, assuming the role of captain. Rohit’s tenure as captain came to an end.
