The 2024 Indian Premier League (IPL) is set to return with its 17th season in March 2024. Before the tournament, all franchises got rid of some non-performing players and added some new names in the 2024 IPL auction in Dubai, to strengthen their teams. Star players such as Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Alzarri Joseph, and Travis Head received big bucks at the marquee event.

Following the business extravaganza in Dubai, all teams will look to pick up quality players who can do their jobs efficiently. In the previous season, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) became champions after beating Gujarat Titans (GT) in the final and equalled Mumbai Indians’ (MI) record of five titles in the league.

In CSK’s spectacular success, their openers Ruturaj Gaikwad and Devon Conway played a vital part. Both opening batters scored more than 1200 runs combined and helped their side clinch the distinguished trophy. Noting Chennai’s victory in the last season, all teams will want their openers to step up and play aggressive cricket in the upcoming IPL edition. Prior to the marquee T20 competition, it is time to have a glance at the opening pairs of all sides.

Here are the opening combinations of each team for IPL 2024:

10. Lucknow Super Giants (LSG)- Quinton de Kock and Kyle Mayers

Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) skipper KL Rahul might be seen batting in the middle order for the team. In the last season, the West Indies' Kyle Mayers looked stunning with his bat and won the confidence of the team management. In 13 games, he notched up 379 runs at an impressive strike rate of 144.10. 

With the presence of aggressive de Kock and Mayers, Rahul will have to move to the middle order. The batting attitude of both players might help Lucknow get fierce starts in the 2024 IPL. In 2023, Mayers scored 206 runs in 12 T20Is at a remarkable strike rate of 158.46 while the Proteas southpaw hit 594 runs in 10 matches in the 2023 World Cup and ended up as the the third-leading run-getter in the tournament.
