To add spice to cricket’s bestselling brand IPL’s opening ceremony at the DY Patil Stadium, this year legendary band Abaa will join world famous singer Lionel Ritchie with another popular band UB40. Deepika Padukone will add the glamour quotient in the ceremony.

Continuing the tradition of ground-breaking opening ceremonies that we saw over the first two editions, this year a host of international pop stars and Bollywood bigwigs will feature in the Indian Premier League’s opening ceremony.
