<p>With teams and players eyeing the T20 World Cup as well, the 17th edition of the competition has a lot to live up to and is predicted to live up to the hype.</p>
<p>Interesting subplots in the main competition will be created by the never-ending rumors regarding Mahendra Singh Dhoni’s retirement, Virat Kohli’s 16-year-itch, Rishabh Pant’s second shot at life, and Rohit Sharma’s broken heart.</p>
<p>Huge changes have been made to the tournament’s design, one of which startled CSK supporters just before their first game.</p>
<p>Before the team’s first game, Dhoni made the decision to resign as captain of CSK, and the team named Rturaj Gaikwad in his place.</p>
<p>After missing out on all the action for the previous 14 months, Rishabh Pant is ready to return to competitive cricket.</p>
<p>After a terrible accident in December 2022 that left him with severe injuries, Pant stayed out of action. However, he has made a hopeful recovery, and he is now ready to lead the Delhi Capitals once again and display his signature one-handed sixes.</p>
<p>On the other hand, Rohit Sharma, who was relieved of his captaincy, is ready to make his Mumbai Indians debut in a different capacity.</p>
<p>Significantly, the team re-instated Hardik Pandya as captain, which sparked intense criticism from supporters and conjecture over Rohit Sharma’s future in MI.</p>
<p>Regarding King Kohli, his goal would be to find the illusive gem inside his crown. He freely acknowledges that he has been waiting for a major championship, and whether the RCB men are able to follow in the footsteps of the women this season will be largely determined by his own intense style of play.</p>
<p>According to the BCCI’s first announcement of the IPL calendar, ten locations would host a total of 21 matches, with each side participating in three to five games till April 7.</p>
<p>Making it into their respective national teams’ rosters for the T20 World Cup, which starts shortly after the competition, seems to be the player’s main goal, albeit with one eye on the IPL crown.</p>
<p>For ten or twelve more Indian players who would want to represent their country in the T20 World Cup in June in the USA and the West Indies, there is also a larger reward up for grabs.</p>
<p>As they will bear a great deal of expectation during the season, Pat Cummins (SRH) and Mitchell Starc (KKR), who won enormous sums of money at the auction, will also be the subject of intense attention.</p>
