The former cricketer, now serving as the brand ambassador for Stake.com, offers insights on the standout players and teams to keep an eye on during the current 17th edition of the IPL


NEW DELHI, April 16, 2024 -- The excitement of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024 season is reaching fever pitch, with teams battling it out on the field for domestic glory. Among the voices offering insights and predictions, is none other than Ravi Shastri. The former cricketer who also captained the national team once, is a brand ambassador for Stake.com, and shared his thoughts on the key players and teams to watch out for in the IPL's 17th edition.




Hits and Misses in Shastri's Predictions


Shastri's predictions have been met with mixed results. While he correctly foresaw Jasprit Bumrah's impactful performance for Mumbai Indians, with the pacer claiming five wickets against RCB, his anticipation of Yashasvi Jaiswal's stellar showing for Rajasthan Royals has yet to materialise. Nonetheless, Shastri's insights continue to fuel anticipation and intrigue as the IPL 2024 season unfolds. The 2024 season began on March 22 and with several matches already underway, Shastri's predictions have sparked discussions among cricket enthusiasts.


Ravi Shastri's foresight proved accurate once again as the Mumbai Indians demonstrated their prowess on the field. With a clinical victory against Delhi Capitals (DC), Mumbai Indians showcased their resilience and skill, securing their first win of the 2024 IPL season.


Highflyers So Far


In the IPL 2024 season, Rajasthan Royals have emerged as early favorites, maintaining a perfect start with victories over Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB). Acknowledging stellar performances from players like Riyan Parag, Sanju Samson, and Jos Buttler, who redeemed himself with a century against RCB, Shastri anticipates a significant impact from the Royals in upcoming matches. Similarly, Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have showcased dominance, remaining unbeaten in the tournament. As they prepare to face Chennai Super Kings (CSK), anticipation grows around KKR's ability to maintain their winning streak. However, Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) face challenges, struggling to find their footing with an inexperienced bowling lineup and inconsistent batting display. Despite notable performances from Virat Kohli and Mohammed Siraj, RCB's position remains precarious, yet hopes are high for Faf du Plessis and his team to stage a comeback.


Looking Ahead


As the IPL 2024 season progresses, all eyes are on the teams and players to see who will emerge victorious. With thrilling matches and unexpected twists awaiting cricket fans, the excitement continues to build with each passing day.
