Once again the season has come to yell and scream out to the fullest. After all, it is only a matter of few hours for the IPL Season to begin. This is the 10th year of the IPL season and nobody wants to miss the grand opportunity to see their favorite ‘Mahi’ hitting sixers in the previous IPL seasons. Be it Virat Kohli vs. Shikhar Dhawan, Yuvraj Singh against Chris Gayle and the nail biting suspense is already on!!! After all it is the only platform where you can ventilate out your every emotion to see the solo performance of your favorite players.
The history of IPL is quite interesting because it is the only match where we can see the Indian players are playing side by side with the international players in a single twenty-twenty match. The IPL League plays a crucial role in contributing a huge platform for international business. The credit goes to Lalit Modi after all, who made IPL the only largest ground where numerous foreign sponsors like Adidas, Reebok, Nike, etc. can invest at a very large scale side by side with the other Indian sponsors like Pepsico India, TVS, Hero Honda, etc. to make a lucrative business.The first IPL match was started in India by BCCI (Board of Control for Cricket in India) when Jagmohan Dalmia was the chairman. It was the first time we heard in the first season of IPL, that the huge crowd of Wankhede yelling or (should I say chanting?), with ‘Sachin……… Sachin………. Sachin……. Sachin….’ as soon as the famous master blaster took charge of the pitch while facing the Daredevils. It was the first time the entire Wankhede witnessed another Tendulkar winning the trophy for Mumbai Indians, and of course we still remember the dazzling smiley in Nitu Ambani’s face. The first season of the IPL Premier league also reminds us about none other than our one and only familiar Sourav Ganguly, a.k.a.‘dada’ batting on the crease representing the horses of the royal Knights riding like real Riders after all. We still remember the marvelous over boundaries of Gautam Gambhir in the Wankhede against Mumbai Indians bowler, Harbhajan Paji.
If you are a diehard fan of Sachin and really miss his famous over boundary hits in the matches he played in the 1st season of IPL, then also you can’t tune into any other channel except Sony Max. This is because; the magnetic attraction of this 10th IPL season will be no less interesting for you when you see the mighty McCullum vs. Dhoni pushing one another till the edge for claiming the final man of the match trophy.
Today is the first match of the 10th IPL Premier League, where two heavy weight teams are going to encounter with one another face to face in a close-pitch battle. The winner team of the last IPL season is definitely not going to leave their opposition team without bringing any challenges in front of them. These Royal Challenger supporters are expecting their favorite Kohli to come in his best form. On the contrary Sunrises Hyderabad are expecting their ‘Yuvvi bhai’ to hit an over boundary to every balls delivered to him. The two teams are putting forward their best warriors to begin the battle between two supporters. Imagine how amazing the match would be if Asish Nehera starts smashing the stumps in every over!! It is like a magnetic attraction for every IPL fanatics to see that any of their favorite opposite team needs to score 5 or 6 runs from 6 or 4 balls left. Immediately we start breathing fast. Our adrenaline starts running at a tremendous fast speed as there are 50-50 chances for our team to win or lose.
This year however BCCI has decided that the opening match of IPL will be held in Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium. The final match of this season is also expected to be in the same stadium. For every Kolkata Knight Rider supporters already the fingers are crossed. Our very nearer and dearer Gautam Gambhir and Andre Russell is expected to bring storm in the Eden Garden stadium right on their first match itself. Just like the last time, this time also the Knight Rider supporters are expecting an aggressive Gambhir to fight the King XI Punjab. The coaches of Team Kolkata Knight Riders have confirmed this time that the overseas players like Chris Lynn, Shakib Al Hassan are in their best form. They are already ready to give their best performance.
This IPL season expects a spectacular performance from some of the best strikers like Mahender Singh Dhoni, Chris Gayle, Ab De Villiers who were not expected to be in a good health after playing their last ODI matches. The IPL fanatics are expecting them to bring a storm as soon as they come on the cricket crease. Though the performance of Mahender Singh Dhoni was a centre of criticism for some time, but the Mahi fans are expecting some of his famous square cuts in this season. The Kohli supporters are expecting him to give best performance this time too. In spite of the buzz that there is something real raunchy still going on or not in between him and Anushka Sharma the opening batsman of Royal Challengers Bangalore seems to be very much focused on his career itself. In a press meet he even informed that the upcoming IPL season is going to be a very crucial period for him. Let’s wish him all the best!!
The Indian Premier League has already increased the mercury level of the IPL watchers. They are eagerly waiting to witness the first 20-20 IPL match of this season to find out what exactly has been written in their fate? After all, it is the only platform where it is not necessary for you to ‘BLEED BLUE’ only. You can bleed black like a Knight, Red like a Royal Kings of Punjab, yellow like the Super kings or maybe you can dress up like daredevil. Who cares? After all it is IPL!!!
