What fans can do to prepare for the IPL 2024

Anticipated by cricket fans across the world, the IPL 2024 is fast approaching and while there is no exact start date released yet, word has it that the games are anticipated to begin around the 22nd of March. With at least 74 matches in the lineup over 2 months, it’s set to be an exciting time where 10 of India’s largest and most successful cricket teams will come together to play Twenty20 cricket, of which the best team will be crowned the winner.

Below, we’ll take a look and what fans can do to prepare for the IPL 2024 so you are ready to watch and enjoy the games without a single worry in mind

Watching the IPL from overseas

IPL isn’t only popular across India as there are fans across the world who tune in each year to catch a glimpse of these premium Indian cricket teams. Below, we will take a look at how you can watch the IPL, depending on which country you are in.

Watching from the UK

As the home of cricket itself, there are many cricket fans across the UK who enjoy dialing into the IPL each year and becoming part of the excitement. The good news for UK fans is that while there is no official rights recurred to broadcast the IPL in the UK as of yet, it will be available through either Sky TV, or DAZN who were the license holders for 2023.

The bad news is that whoever secures the licensing rights to broadcast the games, it is going to cost you. If you are already an avid sports fan then the chances are you will already have one of these sports broadcasting packages, but if you don’t then a Sky Sports package is going to cost you around £46 per month, although it will be less if you already have Sky TV.

As for DAZN, if they secure the licensing rights again then their packages start from just £19.99 per month, although you can secure it for £9.99 per month if you opt for the annual package.

Watching from the US

Options for streaming the IPL in the US are slightly easier and more affordable, in which you can stream it either online or from your smart TV. One of the options is ESPN Plus, which is available for $9.99 per month. However, as ESPN is owned by the Disney corporation, you can bag yourself a bundle deal with Hulu, Disney Plus and ESPN for a great deal too.

The other option is to use the streaming service Sling TV. The game will then be provided through Willow TV, which is a 24/7 live cricket channel. If you already have cable then you may be in luck as many cable services already have this channel.

Watching from India

If you are lucky enough to be at the heart of where the action is happening then you can watch the IPL on Star Sports TV channels. Alternatively, you can sign up for a Disney Plus Hotstar subscription package, which we think is well worth the commitment.

Alternatively, you may be able to stream for free at JioCinema, however be sure to have an Indian phone number so you are able to sign up.

Getting involved in the games

If you’re looking to get involved in the action of the IPL 2024, there are a variety of ways you can get involved online by placing bets on this year’s games. There are a variety of sports betting sites out there to use in which IPL betting attracts huge winning amounts every year.

One of the most common ways to bet on the IPL is to bet on the outcome of the game. There is also the option to bet on individual player performance if you’re up for taking a slightly higher risk. Other types of bets you can place include top bowler, handicap betting, man of the match, total wins/wickets, and top batsman.

Some tips for getting involved in this successfully include:

  • Set up your account in plenty of time so that you’re ready to login and go as the games commence. You don’t want to be stuck trying to create a secure password and miss the key action.
  • Choose a reputable online provider that has good reviews, a variety of secure ways to pay, and is a legally licensed sportsbook.

If you need something else to do to keep you entertained while you wait in anticipation for the games to commence, why not try out an exciting game of online bingo where you could gain some cash prizes and invest that back into betting on the IPL.

Overall, the IPL 2024 is a highly anticipated event that will be watched across the world. No matter where you are watching from, there are a variety of ways to get involved in the games and it will be an exciting time to tune in.
