The ICC World T20 is set to reach its conclusion in a matter of a couple of days. The heavy dose of cricket will continue as the IPL 2016 is set to commence from April 9. The players who clashed with each other playing for the country will be seen sharing the dressing rooms with each other.
The India Premier League is an T20 extravaganza which serves cricket with a dash of glamour to the fans. Every year, the tournament starts with a glamour-filled opening ceremony.
This year too, the arrangements are great. The opening ceremony of the 9th edition of the IPL will feature Bollywood personalities and all-girl English pop band TBC.
Top Bollywood stars like Jacqueline Fernandez, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Katrina Kaif, Ranveer Singh and many more would be adding glitz and glam to the ceremony along with Pop band TBC who have never performed in India before, said a media release from Ferriswheel Entertainment which has bagged the rights to stage the ceremony on April 8.
“Ferriswheel is all set to put together a mad cricket party which will enliven the spirit of cricket. For the first time ever, India will see a 360 degree experience of seamless graphics and projection and state of the art technology – all in one show,” according to the release.
The ceremony would also see 200 dancers and mass cast performers and a huge number of folk artists and percussionists, the release added. The opening game of IPL 9 at the Wankhede Stadium would see last year’s champions Mumbai Indians taking on the new franchise, Rising Pune Supergiants.
