IPL 2024 Teams And Their Squads

Chennai Super Kings (CSK)

Chennai Super Kings will be led by MS Dhoni in IPL 2024. The wicket-keeper batter led the side to two titles during the last three seasons. Hence, CSK has been the most successful team so far in this decade. Also, after winning the trophy last season, CSK joined Mumbai Indians to become the most successful team with 5 IPL trophies.

The men-in-yellow have a powerful batting line-up with the likes of Devon Conway, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Rachin Ravindra, Daryl Mitchell, Shivam Dube, and Moeen Ali. With Shrdul Thakur and Deepak Chahar leading the pace department, CSK will be more settled in the next season. Matheesha Pathirana and Mukesh Chowdhary will also play a crucial role in bowling.

There is no doubt that RCB has a magnificent batting line-up with the likes of Faf du Plessis, Glenn Maxwell, Virat Kohli, Dinesh Karthik, Cameron Green, and Rajat Patidar.
