Indian Premier League Kicks off today

Kings XI Punjab player KL Rahul celebrates his half century against Delhi Daredevils during an Indian Premier League match at the IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali on Sunday

The IPL match timings will be 6.30 a.m. EDT and 10.30 a.m. EDT. The faster pace of the game has led to fitter and more dashing players and therefore, has brought in a new generation of cricket lovers.

The Decision Review System (DRS), used in T20 Internationals, will be introduced at this season's Indian Premier League. The IPL opener will be played today (7 April 2018) 20:00 Hrs (IST) at the Wankhede Stadium, Mumbai.

Chennai Team, on the other hand, have a more settled team as they have retained their core players like Dhoni, Suresh Raina and Ravindra Jadeja.

Meanwhile, fellow IPL franchise the Rajasthan Royals have named pipe manufacturer Astral Pipes as their official associate sponsor.

Welcoming Acer as a technology Partner, Mr. Hemant Dua, CEO, Delhi Daredevils said, "We are delighted to have Acer, a brand known for incredible innovations as our technology Partner".

Chennai Superkings is returning in the tournament after two years. Dhoni and Harbhajan have been two top match-winners for India and now they find themselves sharing the dressing room once again, this time for Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the IPL 2018. The Super Kings have a burgeoning set of problems but they also have a one-stop solution in the form of one of India's most successful captains, a person born 1,700 km away from Chennai but still considered to be a "son of the soil", a player with an excellent cricketing acumen and one of the most effective finishers in modern day cricket: MS Dhoni.

They also have other experienced players in Murali Vijay, Kedar Jadhav, Dwayne Bravo, South African Faf Du Plessis, Sam Billings and Shane Watson to share the burden. England all-rounder Stokes was bought for a draft-high United States dollars 1.96 million despite facing a court trial for an alleged street fight last September following a one-day worldwide against West Indies.

CSK coach Stephen Fleming appeared confident of the team making a bright start. Afghanistan spin duo Rashid Khan and Mohammad Nabi could be handy for them on the slow Indian pitches while Shikhar Dhawan will be paired with England's Alex Hales to open the innings in the absence of Warner. Rohit, who has led the side thrice will be key in the top-order along with new recruits in West Indian batsman Evin Lewis and exciting wicket-keeper batsman Ishan Kishan. Along with AB de Villiers in their ranks, the team has always been strong in their batting prowess. He played for the Kolkata Knight Riders and the Royal Challengers Bangalore. Australian pacer Cummins can be seen bowling in the middle overs.

Andre Russell is perhaps the very definition of a late bloomer. With the two additions of coach Ricky Ponting and captain Gautam Gambhir, the management must assume they've solved their lingering issues.

Axar Patel is a Kings XI Punjab mainstay. One missed the fans from Chennai and Jaipur, who have been starved for two years of supporting their team.

Last September, the league sold its media rights to Star India for $2.52 billion, the biggest television deal the game has seen.
