The much-awaited edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is all set to begin tonight i.e. March 31 with the defending champions Gujarat Titans (GT) taking on Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the season opener.
The impact player rule, DRS on wides and no-balls, submission of playing XIs following the toss, and the reintroduction of the home-and-away format are all introduced for the upcoming edition. The 2023 season is also set to commence within a few hours and will be historic as the competition gears up to commemorate its 15 successful seasons and begins a new one along with the 100th game on May 6 when Mumbai Indians (MI) visit Chepauk to take on the Mahendra Singh Dhoni-led team.
Every team has been hindered by injuries before the league’s commencement, which has cast a shadow over the majority of each team’s season. Nevertheless, all franchises will believe they have a chance to secure ultimate victory in a season that offers to be unlike any other.
With such exciting new regulations and increased anticipation for the IPL 2023, JioCinema, the league’s digital broadcaster, also succeeded in luring a few additional sponsors for the league in addition to those already announced. Let’s take a look at the digital streaming partners for IPL 2023:
