Cricket in India is more than a sport. We all know what the game means to a lot of people in the county. Thank god for all the series and world cups that keep happening every now and then that have us entertained in the monotony of life. The most beloved form of cricket has to be the 20-20 format that has emerged over the years. First, the ICC T-Twenty championship that keeps happening every two years, and now the IPL, in its 11th season that had us hooked. As IPL begins, the season of fun, happiness and unlimited entertainment is back.
The biggest highlight of this season of Indian Premier League has to be the return of Chennai Super Kings. Over the years, the team had been banned from IPL regarding match-fixing allegations. Captain Cool was forced to play for Pune but now he’s back, donning the bright yellow jersey, looking as suave as a man could look. The original eight teams namely Sunrises Hyderabad, Kolkata Night Rides, Kings XI Punjab, Chennai Super Kings, Mumbai Indians, Delhi Daredevils, Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals are back together. Each of the teams has some phenomenal players who are going to set the pitch on fire giving us an ultimate experience watching and enjoying the game we all love so dearly.
Beat the heat in April and May watching the IPL, now in its 11th season, that is going to keep you glued to the television screen every evening for two months. This is just another reason for you to call your friends and family, order a lot of food and make memories with them. Root for your favourite team, celebrate their victories with them and just enjoy the beautiful journey planned for you as IPL begins once again.
Happy cricketing, y’all!
