2024 WPL will begin with a repeat of the 2023 final as champions Mumbai Indians take on Delhi Capitals. The foreign stars had hogged the limelight in the Mumbai lineup last year and hence the Indian players will be hoping to shine in 2024 as Mumbai look to retain the trophy. DC, meanwhile, will head into the season with a rather complete squad, having all their bases covered. The most important aspect will be having experienced international players in the XI, led by Lanning, who has now retired from international cricket, and ample bench strength.
