Indian Premier League (IPL) - Ready for Opening Ceremony and Match

We (me and my room-mates) were completely infected with the IPL Fever (Thanks to the never-ending Commercials and the News Coverage) when we decided, that we must go for the Opening Match between Bangalore Royal Challengers and Kolkata Knight Riders.

Here's the ticket for which I paid a hefty sum. It just got delivered by courier at my workplace. I had ordered it online from TicketPro.

I thought I should post something w.r.t this. So let me tell you what I expect from this whole IPL hoopla in the next month and half:
  • Even more blatant promotion of the teams and their 'stars' with the help of silly songs written and sung by long-ago-discarded lyricists and singers.
  • Even more number of cricket fans (fanatics?) storming into the stadiums and queuing up early in the morning for IPL tickets.
  • Some ferocious cricket from U-19 Players from World Cup winning Indian Team who want to make a mark at the national front.
  • At the same time, some sloppy cricket from the seniors, while they realize its high time they hang their boots.
  • Lat but not the least, NO beer or any other alcohol drink in the stadium. Not even in Vijay Mallya's Bangalore Royal Challengers home ground Bangalore where even the stands are named as Antiquity Members Stand, Bagpiper Special View, McDowell's Best View and Royal Challenge Pavilion
