Over the years, the Indian Premier League (IPL) has witnessed some brilliant and extravagant opening ceremonies.
With the league turning 10 this year, people would have hoped to see an even bigger ceremony but this year’s opening turn out to be little drab.
The first opening ceremony begun here at the Rajiv Gandhi International Cricket Stadium, the home ground of the defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad.
This year, there will be eight opening ceremonies at all eight venues, just before the first match at the host cities.
Here is how people reacted on the ceremony:

You watch #IPLOpeningCeremony for few minutes... and even RGV ki Aag feels like a classical film & most entertaining thing on the earth.— Paresh Rawal fn (@Babu_Bhaiyaa) April 5, 2017
Well, IPL is entertaining & amazes you with great quality of cricket. But, #IPLOpeningCeremony is always a huge disappointment every year.— Shashank Singh Patel (@RccShashank) April 5, 2017
