After the conclusion of the ICC ODI World Cup, the focus has shifted back to the shortest format of Cricket. All teams have instituted their T20 plans and have set T20I FTPs for World Cup Preparations. Meanwhile, India will play the IPL just before the T20I World Cup which will work as a good platform for testing the blades of the Indian players in front of world-class bowlers from across the world.
A 10-team franchise cricket league that is quite a big-budget and coveted T20 League, IPL is celebrated as a festival in India. Indian players are not allowed to play in domestic franchise cricket other than those organized by BCCI, they only play IPL in the name of franchise Cricket and this is what makes this league special. Franchises acquire players through the auction that happens almost every year after the franchise releases their retention-release lists.
All the 10 teams have revealed their retention and release lists so we have a clear picture now of who is going to play for which franchise. The franchises have trusted in Indian names and also have shown faith in some overseas players. Down below is the Top 10 ICC T20I batting Rankings and which team they are in IPL 2024.
