IPL 2024: The 17th edition of the Indian Premier League kicks off with Chennai Super Kings taking on the Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the tournament opener at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai. While the eyes are pinned on these two teams on the opening day, Delhi Capitals and Punjab Kings will soon hog the limelight on day 2 of the tournament.

Rishabh Pant makes a much-awaited return from a serious car crash and will be leading the Capitals in place of David Warner. For the Punjab Kings, they have a new vice-captain in Jitesh Sharma, while Shikhar Dhawan is roaring to go in his captain’s hat in an attempt to overturn Punjab’s fortunes. What more changes is that Punjab will be playing their home matches at the Maharaja Yadavindra Singh International Cricket Stadium in Mullanpur (n silent). The venue is expected to host five of the seven PBKS games this season.
