There are no fewer than 14 England players set to take part in the 2024 Indian Premier League, which kicks off on Saturday 23rd March.
Along with some of the veteran Englishmen, there are a number of young players looking to make a name for themselves in the highest-profile T20 competition.
We take a look at the England stars who will be heading to India, for what will be the 17th edition of the tournament.
All-rounder Moeen Ali made his IPL debut in 2018, when signing for the Royal Challengers Bangalore – who he played with for three seasons.
The Warwickshire ace then joined Chennai Super Kings in 2021 and has won the title twice since then, including in 2023.
Looking for a sixth title overall, Stephen Fleming’s Super Kings are 5/1 to lift the trophy in 2024.
After establishing himself on the international front, Harry Brook is planning for his second season in the Indian Premier League.
The Yorkshire batsman featured for the Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2023, but made the switch to the Delhi Capitals in the 2024 auction.W
Jason Roy began his time in the IPL back in 2017, when he was signed by the Gujarat Lions before joining the Delhi franchise in 2018.
The opener also had spells with the Sunrisers Hyderabad and Gujarat Titans, but this year he has been bought by the Kolkata Knight Riders.
Roy enjoyed his best IPL season, in terms of runs, last year, smashing 285 in eight innings – with an average of 35.63.
All-rounder David Willey is looking forward to a fourth IPL season with a third different team, having been purchased by the Lucknow Super Giants in 2024.
Willey will be team-up with fellow Englishman Mark Wood, who is looking forward to a second season with the Super Giants, who are 15/2 to win the title in only their third campaign.
Both players were part of the England squad that won the T20 World Cup in Australia in 2022.
No IPL team will have more England players in their ranks than the Punjab Kings, who finished eighth out of 10 teams last season.
Jonny Bairstow, Liam Livingstone and Sam Curran were retained from 2023, but Punjab have also added all-rounder Chris Woakes to their ranks.
Woakes has not played in the Indian Premier League since 2021 and cost 4.2million rupees to join this season.
Bairstow is one of just three Englishman to score an IPL century, smashing 114 off just 56 deliveries for Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2019.
Curran is currently inside the world’s top-20 T20 International bowlers, while Livingstone has made a name for himself with England as one of the biggest hitters in world cricket.
One of five England players on the move in 2024 is Tom Curran, who returns to the IPL having missed out last season.
The 28-year-old has previously been with the Kolkata Knight Riders, Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Capitals, but will be part of the RCB squad – who are 15/2 to take the title.
Curran will join Surrey teammates Will Jacks and Reece Topley, who are looking forward to their first IPL appearance, in the Bangalore ranks.
Topley is ranked inside the top-10 International T20 bowlers at present, while Jacks won The Hundred tournament last year with the Oval Invincibles.
The Rajasthan Royals – who finished fifth last season – will have two England players in their ranks for the 2024 campaign.
Buttler won the IPL title in 2017, when with the Mumbai Indians, and is now preparing for a ninth season in the tournament and his seventh as a Royals player.
The wicketkeeper-batter has smashed an amazing five centuries during his time in India’s T20 tournament, with the latest (an unbeaten 106) coming for the Royals in 2022.
In contrast, Kohler-Cadmore is looking forward to his first Indian Premier League campaign having been picked up by the Royals in the auction.
The Somerset batter has had T20 experience in the UK, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and in Australia’s Big Bash.
