It’s that time of the year again. Indian Premier League is back with its new season. The first match of IPL 2023 will be played between the defending champion Gujarat Titans and the prominent team Chennai Super Kings. The inaugural match will be played at the iconic Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad.
