A feast ahead for the Indian cricket fan. The long awaited DFL Indian Premier League is all set to get off to a rousing start in my hometown of Bengaluru.
Bangalore’s Royal Challengers takes on Kolkatta’s Knight Riders in the inaugural match on April 18. The match will be preceded by a lot of fanfare including the Washington Redskins providing the cheerleading.
The tournament sees 8 teams play 56 matches to be followed by two semi-finals and the grand finale at Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium on June 1. See the fixtures here.
