The BCCI will release the schedule and fixtures of 17th season of Indian Premier League, featuring all 10 teams

IPL 2024 schedule announcement highlights: The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has unveiled the much-awaited schedule of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. The BCCI released the IPL 2024 schedule for only the first 15 days of the elite tournament. The roster for the remaining matches will be announced once dates for the General Elections are finalised. Set for its 17th season, the Indian Premier League promises to be bigger and better than ever. We are just a month away from Indian cricket's biggest T20 carnival. After all, it feels like just last month that Ravindra Jadeja struck a boundary off the last ball to take Chennai Super Kings to their fifth IPL title, but the fact remains that it's been 8 long months to that epic night in Ahmedabad. Guess that's what the IPL does – leave an ever-lasting impact!...Read More

The IPL 2024's biggest roadblock was the fact that it is expected to clash with the Lok Sabha elections. Twice has it happened previously, and it led to scattered decisions. The 2009 edition was moved entirely to South Africa, whereas in 2014, the IPL was played in two halves – the first in the UAE and the other back in India. In 2019, the two events did not collide, and hence the IPL, starting March 23, was played entirely in India. This year too, while there were speculations, IPL chairman Arun Dhumal clarified once and for all that the IPL will not be moved abroad, but the full picture will only be painted once there is more clarity.

Back to the cricket. This year's IPL has so much to look forward to. Mumbai Indians have a new captain in Hardik Pandya and Gujarat Titans has Shubman Gill. And of course, the big swansong of MS Dhoni. The Chennai Super Kings captain said last year that winning the IPL in 2023 would have been the perfect time for him to retire but he plans on coming back for one last run 'next year'. Cut to 2024, here we are. In what is Dhoni's final season in all probability, MSD is rocking shades of when he burst onto the scene. He has grown his hair like it was in the mid-2000s and he is likely to play with BAS as his bat sticker. Only Dhoni is capable of such meaningful and priceless gestures.

Moving on to CSK's biggest rivals, the Mumbai Indians have already created headlines even before the start of the tournament. In fact, they created ripples on December 15, 2023 itself when they announced Hardik the new captain of the franchise, replacing Rohit Sharma. The decision created a social media storm with truckloads of MI and other fans spamming their franchise's timelines and being vocal with their displeasure. But it is what it is. The team felt that now is the right time for MI, who have gone without a title for three seasons, to make the transition, and once Hardik came on board, they just knew who it was going to be. In fact, according to reports, Hardik's stipulation for his return to MI was allegedly a guarantee of captaincy.

Outside of MI and CSK, the biggest factor heading into the IPL 2024 are the auction, that took place on December 19, where Pat Cummins and Mitchell Marsh struck gold. The Australian pace-bowling duo smashed records, with Cummins becoming the first player to surpass the 20-crore margin, eventually heading to Sunrisers Hyderabad. However, even before the news if Cummins' record-breaking deal could reach to all parts of the world, it was bettered by Starc, who became the costliest player of all time, with KKR splurging a gobsmacking 24.75 crore on him. Meanwhile, Harshal Patel emerged as the most expensive India, with Punjab Kings shelling out 11.75 crore.

So yeah, the stage is set. Will Cummins, Starc be able to live up to the expectations? Who will be this year's breakout star? The first step towards answering all these questions was taken today at 5:30 PM.

Below are a few important pointers related to the IPL 2024 schedule announcement:

- Chennai Super Kings and Royal Challengers Bangalore will play the IPL 2024 opener at Chepauk.

-Delhi Capitals (DC) will play their first two home games in Visakhapatnam.

- The schedule was announced on Thursday at 5:30 PM IST.

- The entire schedule was not unveiled by the BCCI.

- The IPL 2024 will begin on March 22.

- The entire IPL 2024 will take place in India.

IPL 2024 Schedule Announcement Live Updates: Let's refresh your memory

IPL 2024 Schedule Announcement Live Updates: Not too long ago, the platform for the IPL 2024 was laid following a riveting auction on December 19, where records were smashed. Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc broke banks as both breached the 20 crore mark. Cummins was the first to do as Sunrisers Hyderabad splurged 20.5 crore, but Starc not only joined him but surpassed his Australian captain to become the most expensive IPL buy of all time with KKR shelling out 24.50 crore on the left-arm quick. Expected to be the record but, Starc did exactly that… and why not? Both were instrumental in Australia's World Cup win just a month ago and the franchises didn't fail in noticing it. Among Indians, Harshal Patel was the costliest purchase, going to Punjab Kings for 11/75 crore. That's not it. There's more. Click here to relive that frenetic day.

IPL 2024 Schedule Announcement Live Updates: What happened when IPL clashed with elections previously

IPL 2024 Schedule Announcement Live Updates: Twice has the IPL's schedule and venues been impacted due to elections in its last 15-season history. In 2008 – just the second season – the tournament was moved entirely to South Africa, where the now-defunct Deccan Chargers won the title by beating Royal Challengers Bangalore in the final. Five years later, in 2014, the season was split into two halves as the first part was held in the UAE and the second back in India. 2019 saw no such episode as the IPL went about seamlessly. The IPL was forced to move out of India twice more due to Covid – 2020 and partly in 2021 - before it made a triumphant return to its home turf two years ago.

IPL 2024 Schedule Announcement Live Updates: What to expect

IPL 2024 Schedule Announcement Live Updates: As uncertainty lingers over the announcement of the schedule, there is a possibility that not all fixtures may be released today. It is believed that today's schedule announcement could be only for the first 15-20 games because the BCCI is still contemplating the arrangement needed to ensure that the IPL takes place smoothly and does not clash with the general elections in the country. Ever since two news teams were added to make the IPL a 10-team tournament, the number of league matches have gone up from 56 to 70 with an increase in the number of double headers. This year promises to follow the same structure but the only thing missing here are the complete dates which may or may not be out for the public consumption today.

IPL 2024 Schedule Announcement Live Updates: Let's refresh your memory

IPL 2024 Schedule Announcement Live Updates: Not too long ago, the platform for the IPL 2024 was laid following a riveting auction on December 19, where records were smashed. Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc broke banks as both breached the 20 crore mark. Cummins was the first to do as Sunrisers Hyderabad splurged 20.5 crore, but Starc not only joined him but surpassed his Australian captain to become the most expensive IPL buy of all time with KKR shelling out 24.50 crore on the left-arm quick. Expected to be the record but, Starc did exactly that… and why not? Both were instrumental in Australia's World Cup win just a month ago and the franchises didn't fail in noticing it. Among Indians, Harshal Patel was the costliest purchase, going to Punjab Kings for 11/75 crore. That's not it. There's more. Click here to relive that frenetic day.

IPL 2024 Schedule Announcement Live Updates: Do we have a start date already?

IPL 2024 Schedule Announcement Live Updates: The official announcement will take place in another 2.5 hours but we may have an official kick-off date. IPL chairman Arun Dhumal recently said that the board is targeting 22nd as the day the IPL 2024 starts. Then again, a lot of permutations and combinations are involved. Everything depends on when the Election Commission announces the polling dates. While this may be true, one thing that isn't is the opening fixture. Reports were floating that CSK and GT might play the opener in a repeat of last year's final, but the official fixtures once out – albeit partial – could indicate something else.

IPL 2024 Schedule Announcement Live Updates: So much to look forward to

IPL 2024 Schedule Announcement Live Updates: Each year, the IPL gets bigger and better. But this year, there are multiple reasons to make it mouth-watering. Firstly, we have a new captain of Mumbai Indians… and he goes by the name of Hardik Pandya. The decision to replace Rohit Sharma with Hardik as captain has already generated a lot of news, but that isn't all. Shubman Gill will have his first shot at captaincy as he gears up to lead two-time finalists and one-time winner Gujarat Titans. And lastly, MS Dhoni. The CSK captain in all probability will play his final IPL season, which promises to attract more eyeballs than before.
