IPL 5 Cricket Match Series commences with all grandeur in Chennai Stadium

The opening ceremony for the 5th IPL twenty 20 cricket series was held with all grandeur in Chennai last night.  Amitabh Bachchan recited poetry, Priyanka Chopra and Kareena danced, Prabhudeva danced at lightning speed, and there was Katy’s song.

The event commenced with much fanfare as thousands of fans witnessed.  There were art programs also.  The opening ceremony commenced in the YMCA ground at 7:30 last night.

Nine IPL team captains, players, and cricket board officials and thousands of fans participated.

There was dance of cinema artistes. It was hard to make out whether it is opening ceremony for cricket series or for some cine award presentation event.  There was that much fanfare with songs and dances being conducted in the event.

From beginning till last, the event bore semblance to some cinema program.  There was nothing related to cricket in the event.  Only the poetry which Amitabh Bachchan recited related to cricket.  Others were just cinema songs and dances.
But still, the IPL 5 opening ceremony proved a different experience for audience.

Play commences today.

The matches are commencing from today, i.e. April 4th.  During the next 54 days, there is much in store for cricket lovers.
There are totally 9 teams with enormous international players, and Indian players who are waiting with much exuberance to present their talent and take their team to the peak. 

This IPL series is sure a boon for players since it would help them take place in their respective national team.  With contemplation that their performance here would take them there to their national team, and also with thought of cashing in through excellent performance, many players are keenly into playing in the series.
In the first match to be held today, current champion Chennai Super Kings and Mumbai team are clashing.  The match is to be held in MA Chidambaram stadium, Chepauk today.  As much as 76 matches in 12 different places in the country are to be held till May 27th.  Every team is to play with the other team both in and out of their respective towns.
