The Latest Events and News on Cricket’s Biggest Stage

Cricket fans, get ready because March 22 is around the corner, and it brings us another, the 17th in a row, exciting IPL season. Although there was speculation that the league could be played outside the borders of India, due to the general elections, in the end, it was decided that the entire tournament would be played in India. The final of the tournament is scheduled for May 26, taking into account the Lok Sabha elections and the start of the T20 World Cup, which is scheduled for June 2.  Also, as the start of the new season approaches, topics about injured players and their replacements, as well as the predictions of cricket experts, which you can view on for this season, are becoming more dominant.


The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has made a final decision after careful consideration of all factors and confirmed that the official window of the IPL will be held from March 22 to May 26. The exact dates of all the games have been finalized and based on this information given to the franchises ahead of the IPL auction in Dubai on Tuesday, the boards of Australia, South Africa, Afghanistan, New Zealand, and the West Indies have made their players fully available, with little or no strings attached. 

Latest Events

In the pulsating rhythm of the IPL, while the whole world prepares for the start of the new season, the excitement does not subside, and this is confirmed by some of the latest news. Right before the start, the Indian public, as well as the rest of the world, witnessed historic transfers and changes in the roles of players, which are the first indicator of everything this season brings, and many believe that it will remain written in golden letters in the history of cricket.

The most shocking news that hit the fans of the legendary Rohit Sharma is that he is not entering the new season as the captain of Mumbai Indians. Rohit Sharma is the most successful player in the history of the IPL, and as a captain, he even led the Mumbai Indians to the championship title 5 times. However, on the eve of the 2024 season, the club leaders decided to give the captain’s role to traded Hardik Pandya, justifying that it was a purely sports decision, which would bring out the best qualities from both players. They also added that they understand how this emotionally affected many fans, but that they cannot let emotions affect the player, but that they should let him enjoy the game and score as many successful runs as possible.

However, the fans seem to be unable to accept the fact, so they have been bringing out the question of trade, and whether Rohit even wants to leave the team at all after such a decision. However, the transfer window closed a while ago, so such a move would not even be possible.

Media Coverage

Cricket is becoming increasingly popular and widely watched, as evidenced by the recent world championship that broke all viewership records, with more than 1.25 million fans around the world. As a result, cricket is increasingly represented in various media, which regularly write about the most current topics and one of the most represented in recent days was precisely this one about the taking away of the captain’s role of Rohit Sharma.

This season is expected to be the most exciting yet, and a very small rule change that might have significant effects. At the end of 2023, the IPL decided that bowlers will be allowed two bounces per over, which will open up more strategic opportunities, but will have a surprising effect on the batsmen.

Cricket Betting

As cricket becomes more popular and watched around the world, the excitement of betting on cricket matches, especially those during the IPL, is slowly spreading. Betting on cricket offers many possibilities, from betting on the outcome of the matches, to the individual performance of the players, making it a favorite choice among active bettors. Given that the IPL is the highest level of this competition, it is expected that the matches will offer the most twists and turns and that every throw will be decisive.

Another season of the most exciting cricket competition is about to begin, which will undoubtedly attract the attention of spectators and sports enthusiasts around the world. Following the recent situation, we believe that all eyes will be on the Mumbai Indians team, who traded and brought Hardik Pandya back into their ranks, and then gave him the role of captain. It would not be strange if he replaced anyone other than the legendary Rohit Sharma in that position, which enraged the cricket public and heralded another exciting cricket season.
