IPL 2024: Before the 17th season, more than half the franchises changed their captains, see the complete list here.

Before the Indian Premier League 2024 (IPL 2024), Chennai Super Kings (CSK) made a major reshuffle and handed over the captaincy of the franchise to Ruturaj Gaikwad in place of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. This season CSK is the sixth team, which has changed its captain. Earlier, Mumbai Indians (MI), Gujarat Titans (GT), Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH), Delhi Capitals (DC) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) have also changed their captains.

Mumbai Indians changed their captain for the first time since the beginning of the 17th season. Hardik Pandya was given the command of the franchise in place of Rohit Sharma. MI traded Hardik Pandya to Gujarat Titans.

GT Titans were looking for a captain after Hardik Pandya moved to Mumbai Indians. In such a situation, the franchise expressed confidence in young Shubman Gill. Gill does not have any captaincy experience in IPL.

SRH recently appointed Australia’s World Cup winning captain Pat Cummins as its captain. The franchise had bought Pat Cummins in the mini auction for Rs 20 crore 50 lakh. After this, Cummins was given the responsibility of leadership of SRH in place of Aiden Markram.
