IPL 2024 Gears Up for Action: March Kickoff Confirmed, Entire Tournament in India

The anticipation for the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 reaches its peak as league chairman Arun Dhumal announces the commencement date of March 22. In an intriguing move, the entire tournament is slated to be held in India, even amidst the backdrop of general elections in April and May.

Despite the electoral overlap, Dhumal reassured fans and stakeholders that the IPL will unfold entirely in India. To navigate the complexities of the election schedule, only the first 15 days of the IPL will be initially disclosed, with the remaining fixtures contingent on the release of election dates in early March.

While historical instances saw IPL events being relocated due to general elections in 2009 and 2014, Dhumal expressed unwavering commitment to hosting the complete 2024 season within the country.

The grand finale of IPL 2024 is expected to dazzle fans on May 26, paving the way for the upcoming T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies, scheduled to kick off on June 1. The inaugural match will witness a showdown between last year’s champions, Chennai Super Kings, and the runners-up, Gujarat Titans. Notably, the IPL 2024 player auction, held in December 2023, witnessed Australian pacer Mitchell Starc becoming the league’s most expensive player after Kolkata Knight Riders secured him for ₹24.75 crore.
