It's that time of the year! The Indian Premier League, the 10-week-long festival of cricket, celebration, fandom, enjoyment and emotions set to kick offon Friday, March 22 in Chennai. The defending champions Chennai Super Kings (CSK) will take on Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the opener. There is a change of guard with Ruturaj Gaikwad being handed over the reins by MS Dhoni, the five-time IPL winning captain. The shoes are big to fill but it's Gaikwad's now and he now has to fit in them and take the franchise and its legacy forward.

Against him will be his former opening partner Faf du Plessis, the 39-year-old South African great in his own right, trying to fulfill a franchise's dream of a maiden IPL trophy. There are several other narratives this season, the emotional comeback of Rishabh Pant, the captaincy fiasco at the Mumbai Indians, a young skipper at Gujarat Titans, a non-existent T20 player being made the captain at Sunrisers Hyderabad following his international success in the other two formats. Amid all this, there are a couple of new rules in the form of two bouncers per over and a smart replay system for DRS to reduce the time spent.

There's a lot of newness and a few major returns in the form of Shreyas Iyer, Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins and Rajat Patidar. MS Dhoni and Rohit Sharma, the two most successful captains in IPL will play just as players. There are several narratives and the excitement and the buzz is at its peak before the big clash as IPL begins its 17th season.
