IPL 5 Schedule Launched

Posted on Mar 21 2012 - 1:04pm by Rohan Nitin Pitre

Reverse countdown for the Indian Premier League has started, as the much awaited Indian extravaganza is just a couple of weeks away. IPL 5 will kick-start with the power-packed performances of Bollywood superstars Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra. The opening ceremony would be hosted by none other than Bollywood Shehenshah Amitabh Bachchan. This would be Mr. Bachchan’s first public appearance after undergoing two abdominal surgeries last month. Apart from Bollywood stars, the ‘Opening Nite’ will also feature performance from Katy Perry, an international singer. The opening ceremony would be held at YMCA College of Physical Education, Chennai and would start by 7:30pm on Set Max, official broadcaster of IPL. Unlike the previous seasons, this time around the opening ceremony would be held one day in advance and not on the day of 1st match.

Nine teams will contest in IPL 5 after Kochi Tuskers were removed regarding legal problems. 72 league games will be held across 12 venues. The qualifier and eliminator system from last year would be applicable this time around too. Final would be played on reigning champions Chennai Super Kings’ home ground in Chennai on May 27. Tickets have gone on sell since March 16 and are priced around Rs.1,500.
