IPL Match Today - IPL 2024 Schedule

The Board of Control for Cricket in India released the full schedule for the 2024 Indian Premier League season on March 25, solidifying Chennai's central role. The season kicked off on Sunday with the defending champions, Chennai Super Kings, hosting Royal Challengers Bangalore at the MA Chidambaram Stadium. Notably, Chennai will also host the grand finale, capping off the entire IPL experience in the city.


While the initial schedule released only covered games from March 22nd to April 7th, the full picture now reveals all 74 matches will be played within India. The playoff stage will see Ahmedabad and Chennai share the spotlight. The Narendra Modi Stadium, home of the 2022 champions Gujarat Titans, will host Qualifier 1 and the Eliminator on May 21st and 22nd respectively.


Returning to Chennai, Chepauk will stage Qualifier 2 on May 24th, leading up to the ultimate clash for the trophy on May 26th. This news brings back memories of last year's thrilling final where CSK, led by MS Dhoni, secured a record-tying fifth title in a dramatic last-ball finish against GT.


Looking at the schedule, CSK will face off against their rivals throughout the season. They'll host last year's runners-up GT on March 26th, followed by a clash with former champions Kolkata Knight Riders on April 8th. The much-anticipated "El Clasico" against arch-rivals Mumbai Indians will take place on April 14th at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium.


The remaining schedule also highlights interesting venue choices. Punjab Kings will play two games in Dharamsala, while Rajasthan Royals, the inaugural season champions in 2008, will have two home games in Guwahati. Rishabh Pant's Delhi Capitals will play their remaining five home matches at the Arun Jaitley Stadium in Delhi, having opted to play their initial two home games in Visakhapatnam.
