The anticipation surrounding IPL 2024 reached its peak with the release of the fixtures for the initial phase of the upcoming season. Adding to the excitement, it was disclosed that the defending champions Chennai Super Kings would kick off the season against Royal Challengers Bangalore, a matchup that Faf Du Plessis is eagerly looking forward to.

With the 17th season of IPL officially commencing on March 22, cricket enthusiasts brace themselves for another action-packed two months of the T20 franchise league. The clash between CSK and RCB has always been highly anticipated due to the star-studded lineups of both teams.

While MS Dhoni’s return to IPL 2024 is eagerly awaited, the spotlight won’t solely be on the five-time champion. Virat Kohli will also make his comeback to competitive IPL action after missing the England Test series due to the birth of his second child, a baby boy named Akaay.

The highly anticipated showdown between the two sides has already become a hot topic among pundits and former cricket legends, and Faf du Plessis’ recent Instagram story underscores the excitement surrounding the opening match of IPL 2024.

The batsman couldn’t contain his enthusiasm for the clash and shared a picture with his former teammate Dhoni from the last encounter between the two teams in the tournament.

‘What a thrilling first game this will be, wow…’ Faf’s story exclaimed.

Since his move from CSK to RCB, Du Plessis has found himself in a leadership role within the team after Kohli stepped down in 2022. Leading RCB to the playoffs in his debut season as captain, Du Plessis’ team finished 6th in the 2023 season.

This year, Royal Challengers Bangalore will start their campaign with renewed optimism, fueled by the addition of promising new talents such as Cameroon Green, Alzarri Joseph, Lockie Ferguson, and Yash Dayal.
