IPL 2024: Latest news and updates

CSK lose two on the bounce

After winning their first two games of the season, played in Chennai, CSK have lost two back-to-back away games with their tactics coming under the scanner. The defending champions next play KKR, the table-toppers, at home, and will have to get their act back together soon.

Sunil Narine turns back the clock

Narine registered his highest T20 score, blasting 85 off 39 balls against Delhi Capitals. Coming into IPL 2024, Narine had scored 44 runs from 10 outings with the bat in T20 cricket this year. The move back up to the top has worked wonders for him and KKR as his 2017-18 days seem to be back.

The 21-year-old fast bowler from Delhi clocked speeds of 155 kph on IPL debut in the LSG vs PBKS match on Saturday (March 30), sending the cricket world in a frenzy. He returned figures of 3-27 from four overs, taking LSG to victory.
