The Indian Premier League is known for the glamour it exhibits from High Flying Six by a Cricketer to the beautiful Girls involved in the whole tournament standing in pavilion being cheerleader or supporters. When we talk about the IPL opening ceremony it means the extravaganza breaking all the limits but if we talk about IPL opening ceremony of this year that is VIVO IPL 2017, even the people associated with the tournament won’t want to talk about it and they would hope that nobody sees the ceremony.
Yes it is true as the Indian Premier League turned 10 this year opening ceremony was organised at Hyderabad as every year’s opening ceremony. But no one expected that this year the opening ceremony would turn out to be a nightmare for people as well as BCCI. This year’s opening ceremony was full of awkward situations for players as well as Bollywood Stars. Before discussing about the awkward moments lets take a look at the schedule of the opening ceremony via announcements made through stadium.
1.Put your hands up now! Amy Jackson sets the stage on fire with electrifying dance performance. From Kala Chashma to Tamma Tamma – the stadium comes alive.
2. Now it’s the turn of the home team and defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner to enter the stadium with the IPL Trophy.
3. Shastri now welcomes the Royal Challengers Bangalore captain Virat Kohli amid thunderous applauds from the crowd. Kohli takes a round of the stadium on a golf cart.
4.IPL chairman Rajeev Shukla along with treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary felicitate Sachin Tendulkar.
And in this way the ceremony went on….. now lets take a look at the down moment of this 2017 opening ceremony.
- Leaving apart Amy Jackson’s Kala Chashma Performance, every thing done in the name of opening ceremony was dull and lacked energy. The Awkward Session wherein David Warner captain of the Sunrisers Hyderabad team was made to stand with ugly stitched Tiger costumed School Kids, who later sang the Team Anthem being offbeat and clueless. The uncomfortable smile on the face of David Warner spoke Volume about the unpreparedness about the ceremony.

2. From the embarrassing history of Bolly Stars Performing in the IPL opening ceremony, came the Amy Jackson was only there to show her beauty forget dancing she had only one or two steps to perform as if she was going somewhere and was asked to perform in the meanwhile.
3. The unnoticed rendition of Chale Chalo from the movie Lagaan went without grabbing the eyeballs and ears of the people .
4. The boring felicitation ceremony of Players Virender Sehwag, Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly and VVS Laxman by one and only Ravi Shastri. While people were yawning the ‘as usual’ ceremony was going on without much hooting and cheering as if students of a high school are getting felicitation from a principle who is way too much strict.
So this was How IPL opening Ceremony disappointed us.
