The 15th edition of the Indian Premier League will begin in less than a day’s time with defending champions Chennai Super Kings taking on runners-up Kolkata Knight Riders on March 26 at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The match is expected to set up a solid foundation for two month-long cricketing festival, which will bring the best out of top-notch cricketers worldwide.
BCCI brought the finalists of last season up against each other in the first clash to make the first contest more exciting and thrilling. However, a lot has changed since the final of IPL 2021 – most notably, both sides will be played under the leadership of new captains. While Kolkata Knight Riders picked Shreyas Iyer in IPL auctions and made him skipper for the upcoming season, CSK stunned the world on Thursday announcing Ravindra Jadeja’s name as the new skipper. Both sides are regarded as one of the most successful franchises in the tournament, having won the title a couple of times. The first clash between both will be undoubtedly an electrifying contest.
