It was the Challengers first win over the Capitals in five attempts making victory all the sweeter.

The TATA Indian Premier League begins on March 22nd, with live coverage of the competition running until May. Twelve of England’s cricket stars are set to be involved this season including Moeen Ali, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes and Sam Curran as well as England’s ICC T20 World Cup 2023 captain, Jos Buttler, who will join forces with local favourites Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma to create an all-star line-up.

Sky Sports subscribers will be able to watch 74 live matches from the TATA Indian Premier League in 2024.

Jonathan Licht, Managing Director at Sky Sports, commented: “The IPL and WPL are two fantastic competitions that see the world’s best players compete in front of a fanatical local audience – resulting in some of the most explosive and entertaining cricket in the calendar as we saw with the conclusion of the WPL on Sunday. We’re excited to bring these great live events to life on Sky Sports, adding to the already unrivalled cricket line up this year and giving fans access to more of the sport and players that they love.”

All the action from both leagues will be available to watch on Sky Sports Cricket, and non-Sky subscribers can stream the action with a NOW Sports Day or Month Membership.
