IPL 2024 kicks off with the CSK v RCB contest at the MA Chidambaram stadium on March 22. The first match starts at 8 pm after the grand opening ceremony. Matches in IPL 2024 start at 3.30 pm IST and 7.30 pm IST respectively. 

 We have a mouthwatering contest lined up in the very first game of IPL 2024. The 17th season kicks off with the defending champions taking on the perennial underachievers in the IPL. Out of the 16 seasons played, RCB have made the playoffs eight times while playing the final thrice. However, they have yet to win the elusive trophy. 

The RCB women’s team winning the WPL title after beating Delhi Capitals in the final on Sunday will now add extra pressure on the men’s team to do well. The Banglore franchise can see it as an opportunity and take inspiration from how the women’s side fared in the league. 

The side bought quite a few players in the auction and has tried to address the bowling concerns. They have added the likes of Alzarri Joseph and Lockie Ferguson to their ranks and traded Cameron Green from Mumbai Indians.

The absence of an experienced Indian spinner is another major concern for the team. Last year Karn Sharma picked up 10 wickets playing as the specialist spinner. However, they are still weak on that front as well. 

CSK, on the other hand, does its job very well at the auction that it normally does. They have roped in the likes of Rachin Ravindra, Daryl Mitchell, Mustafizur Rahman, and a certain Sameer Rizvi who is touted to be the next Suresh Raina. He made a name for himself playing a few impactful knocks in the SMAT. His 75 off 46 balls to help UP win over Tamil Nadu stood out with the southern team having Varun Chakravarthy, R Sai Kishore, and Washington Sundar in their ranks.
