This time IPL will return in a home and away match with MS Dhoni playing for Chennai Super Kings after three years in Chennai
The Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 fixture schedule has been finalized with Chennai Super Kibgs taking on Guajarat in the opening match on March 31. This time, the IPL will once again feature home and away matches, with MS Dhoni playing for CSK after three years in Chennai. The former Indian captain has a huge fan following in Chennai. Following the announcement of the IPL 2023 fixture list, former Australian international Matthew Hayden spoke on Star Sports about the reception Chennai Super Kings captain MS Dhoni will get when he takes to the field in Chepauk after almost three years.
“It’s going to be an incredible moment. I think last year we were all under the impression that MSD would come back. At the end of the IPL season, he made a big statement that he would come back. For the Yellow Army, this means that Chennai suddenly has a bit of a focus around an outstanding leader, who has been doing it for so long. I think it will definitely be the end of his IPL career. So these few games at the beginning will be crucial not only for the fans but also for CSK this season,” said Hayden.
The Hardik Pandya-led GT team won the title last year after defeating Rajasthan Royals in the final and will look to continue their great run in this tournament. In total, the tournament will be played at 12 venues this year, with Dharamsala and Guwahati joining the hosts.
1st April 2023 will be the first doubleheader of the season as Punjab Kings take on Kolkata Knight Riders in Mohali and Lucknow SuperGiants take on Delhi Capitals in Lucknow.
IPL 2023 will have 18 double-headers with the day games starting at 3:30 IST and the evening games starting at 7:30 IST.
