IPL 2014 Opening Ceremony - No Break - After T20 World Cup Enjoy IPL Now

We enjoyed the T20 cricket in the ICC T20 world cup 2014 and before the hangover was over its time to switch to the most popular T20 cricket league called the IPL. This is no doubt the most popular form of cricket that drives fans crazy. This year IPL is played in two phases, one in UAE and one in India.

Elections for Lok Sabha in India during April & May is the reason to host a part of IPL in UAE (South Africa and Bangladesh were also preferred choices but UAE was the lucky destination). The seventh season of IPL or we can say IPL-7 will also be little bit different this time and there won't be extravagant opening ceremony like the previous seasons of the league.  This year it'd be  a gala dinner only on April 15th. The dinner is hosted by Sheikh Nahyan Bin Mubarak Al Nahyan son of Sheikh of Abu Dhabi. Dinner would be hosted at Emirates Palace to be attended by various celebrities from Bollywood and VIP guests.  But the extravagant opening ceremonies are not what fans like in IPL, its cricket, the sixes, the wickets and the excitement in each and every delivery that drives the cricket fans crazy. I personaly have never watched any IPL opening ceremony so far but I've never missed any opening and closing match. In between the opening and final match of IPL I've watched the games of team I've supported always the Mumbai Indians. But since this time Sachin Tendualkar in not playing for Mumbai I'd be supporting my home team the Kings XI Punjab this time, hopefully they'll have a good season this time.

So be prepared for another exciting round of T20 cricket, let the fever of twenty twenty caught the world again for another couple of months.  Please also keep checking some famous quotes from IPL at this post.
