The 2018 IPL season will kick off in less than two months from now, as defending champions Mumbai Indians will host the returning Chennai Super Kings in the first match of the season.
India’s biggest cricketing carnival will start from the first week of April, as the IPL will start a fresh chapter this season. The franchises took part in the IPL auction a couple of weeks back, as all eight teams hit the reset button and built new squads from scratch.
The tournament was supposed to start from April 5th, with Mumbai Indians hosting Chennai Super Kings. But that has been postponed to April 7th, with the final being pushed to 27th May.
RCB will be eager to start afresh this season, as they will look to lift their maiden IPL title this time around. With skipper Virat Kohli at the peak of his powers, and the legendary AB de Villiers also in tow, RCB fans will always feel that they have more than a good chance to win the league.
