Oldest Players to Feature in IPL 2024

The IPL isn’t just a league for young guns – it’s a battlefield, where experience clashes with youthful enthusiasm, creating magic on the field! These seasoned veterans are not here just to make up the numbers; they bring years of cricketing wisdom and leadership to the table. Get ready to be amazed, as we celebrate the IPL 2024’s top 3 oldest players who are all set to prove that age is just a number

 

MS Dhoni (Age 42)

Dhoni, the legendary captain of the Chennai Super Kings (CSK), is synonymous with the IPL. Nicknamed “Thala” by his die-hard fans, it is his calm leadership and strategic brilliance have brought CSK five IPL trophies! In his IPL career, Dhoni has hammered 5,082 runs in 218 innings with an average of over 38. During the IPL 2024, Dhoni will be 42 years 8 months 15 days old, proving age is just a number. His fans eagerly await his return in the iconic yellow jersey for his 17th season.

 

Amit Mishra (Age 41)

The crafty leg-spinner Amit Mishra isn’t done yet! Picked up by Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) in the 2023 auction, Mishra proved his worth by grabbing seven wickets in just seven games last season, with a miserly economy rate. This 41 years 3 months 28 days old (during the IPL 2024) will be the oldest player in the LSG squad and boasts a successful 16-year IPL career with a whopping 173 wickets in 161 games.

 

Faf du Plessis (Age 39)

Faf du Plessis is a powerhouse of fitness and fearless batting. This South African star has played for three IPL teams – CSK, Rising Pune Supergiants, and currently, Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB).  A key player in CSK’s championship runs, Faf boasts over 4,000 IPL runs with an impressive average exceeding 36. Now leading RCB, at 39 years 8 months 9 days old (during the IPL 2024), his experience will be invaluable.

 

Wriddhiman Saha (Age 39)

Wriddhiman Saha, one of the most underestimated wicketkeeper-batsman, has been a rock for multiple teams – Kings XI Punjab, Sunrisers Hyderabad, Kolkata Knight Riders, CSK, and Gujarat Titans. Saha is known for his fearless opening, providing crucial starts in the powerplay.  With almost 2,800 IPL runs and a century under his belt, the 39 years 4 months 29 days old Saha (during the IPL 2024) brings experience and skill to the wicket.

 

These veterans are a true inspiration, proving that passion and dedication can keep you at the top of your game. Get ready to witness their brilliance light up IPL 2024!
