The two popular teams of IPL are back which were suspended for two years by the Lodha committee. The two teams Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Rajasthan Royals were suspended because of match-fixing.
The six captains of IPL franchises won’t attend the opening ceremony on April 7. As per the reports, all the eight captains will do a special video on 6th April and will upload it in the evening.
Till last year, they said that the opening ceremony will be held a day before the first match. But, this year BCCI decided to have the opening ceremony before the first match on 7th April in Mumbai.
This mistake is done because the senior IPL officials did not do their homework on the logistical aspect.
