IPL 2024 Opener: CSK to Take on RCB on March 22

The first game of IPL 2024 will be on March 22 at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. The defending winners, Chennai Super Kings, will play host to Royal Challengers Bangalore.

The IPL announced a partial schedule on Thursday, with the first 21 games set to take place from March 22 to April 7. The men’s T20 World Cup starts on June 1 in the USA and the Caribbean. The IPL final is set to happen on May 26, leaving only five days between the two events.

The Election Commission of India will announce the times of the national elections, which are likely to happen in April and May. The second half of the tournament schedule will then start.

IPL 2024 Schedule

As usual, the first game of the event will start at 8 pm IST. The other games will start at 7:30 pm IST in the evenings and at 3:30 pm IST in the mornings on days when there are two games.

The first program has four doubleheaders, including two on the first weekend. On March 23, Punjab Kings will play Delhi Capitals at home during the day. Later that day, Kolkata Knight Riders will face Sunrisers Hyderabad at Eden Gardens.

On March 24, the Rajasthan Royals play their first game against the Lucknow Super Giants. On the same day, Hardik Pandya’s Mumbai Indians play their first game away against Gujarat Titans, which is his old team. For the fourth time in six seasons, the season opener won’t have both of the champions from the previous season. Instead, the Titans, who came in second place last year, will start their season two days later.

IPL Venue Changes

Capitals will play two games at Visakhapatnam’s ACA-VDCA Stadium from March 22 to April 7—the only team not to play at Delhi’s Feroz Shah Kotla. Our Team learned that the Delhi and District Cricket Association notified the IPL governing council that it may not have enough time to prepare the venue after hosting 11 Women’s Premier League matches, including the final, till March 17.

The Capitals, Titans, and RCB will play five of their 14 matches in 17 days. All other teams will play four games, but KKR will play three. Punjab Kings will move from Mohali to Mullanpur on Chandigarh’s outskirts for their home games.


On the tournament’s first day, MS Dhoni will return. He will return to team training in Chennai in the first week of March. He hasn’t played competitive cricket since knee surgery following leading CSK to a rain-soaked two-day final win over Titans in Ahmedabad last season.

Hardik Pandya will captain Mumbai Indians again after two seasons at Titans, where he guided them to a triumph in their debut year. A major vehicle accident in December 2022 sidelined Rishabh Pant, who is likely to return to competitive cricket.
