IPL is as much about the cricketing action on the field as it is a carnival for the fans. The euphoria will start with the gala opening ceremony at the venue of the opening game.
But the 10th edition of Indian Premiere League shall see 8 separate opening ceremonies at the home grounds of 8 franchises.
IPL Chairman stated that a unanimous decision was taken by the members of the governing council to give fans from all host cities a taste of gala opening ceremony. It would be unsafe to say that it was my idea.
Meeting was held with all the members together and decided to have separate opening ceremonies across all the host cities to give the fans the opportunity to see the opening of the 10th edition of India Premiere League live.
He also said that we will also have the performances from Bollywood stars,spirit of cricket signing etc.
Chairman begs to disagree the fact that pundits have often said that the IPL has lost its charm due to several controversies that surrounded by the cash rich league.
There were 396 million in viewership in India alone in 9th edition and around 190 million in the 8th edition and it shows a clear success story.
He also stated that last year’s tournament will stay in the heart of the fans due to Virat Kohli. In fact youngsters like Mustafizur,Chahal,Ben Cutting and Adam Zampa impressed fans with their talents.
“I wish to make tournament bigger and better this season” he stated.
