“Get ready, folks It’s none other than @iamsrk who will celebrate Cricket Ka Queendom! Watch the #TATAWPL 2024 Opening Ceremony on @JioCinema& @Sports18LIVE from the M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru,” a post read on WPL’s X handle.

The inaugural event will feature performances by Shahid Kapoor, Kartik Aaryan, Varun Dhawan, and Tiger Shroff, in addition to SRK.

The second season of the WPL will begin on February 23, with the Mumbai Indians and Delhi Capitals facing off in Bengaluru at M. Chinnaswamy Stadium.

The competition will continue until March 17 and will be hosted in Bengaluru and Delhi.

The summit clash will take place on March 17 in New Delhi, with the eliminator on March 15. The upcoming edition will be staged in Delhi and Bengaluru. All matches will commence at 7:30 p.m.

The inaugural event was organised in March 2023 in Mumbai and Navi Mumbai. This time, two dynamic cities will share the spotlight, delivering a double dose of cricket frenzy for fans all around India. Five teams—the UP Warriors, Royal Challengers Bangalore, Gujarat Giants, Delhi Capitals, and Mumbai Indians—are set to compete for the renowned title.

Teams have already selected players for their squads following the end of the WPL 2024 auction in December of last year.

The WPL’s 2024 season will follow the same format as the previous year, with the top three teams in the league stage qualifying for the playoffs. The team that finishes first in the league standings will automatically go to the final, while the teams that finish second and third will play in the eliminator on March 15.

Last year, India’s Harmanpreet Kaur-led Mumbai Indians upset Meg Lanning’s Delhi Capitals by seven wickets to win the inaugural season.
