Mumbai: Mar 30, 2012

 

The fifth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2012 will start on April 4, and will have 72 matches to be played on 12 different grounds across India. The preliminary schedule has nine franchises (teams) playing in this fifth edition.

 

Bollywood stars Salman Khan and Priyanka Chopra will dazzle the Indian Premier League’s opening ceremony to be held at YMCA College of Physical Education on April 3.

 

Superstar Amitabh Bachchan will host the opening ceremony of the cash-rich Twenty20 league.  

 

Apart from Bollywood stars, the ‘Opening Nite’ will also feature performance from a leading international artist, an IPL release stated. The opening ceremony will begin at 7:30 pm, however, the venue gates will be thrown open to the audience from 5:00 pm.

 

The event will also feature all captains of the nine teams taking the MCC Spirit of Cricket pledge, which has been on display since the competition’s inception in 2008.

 

The IPL organisers have tweaked the schedule of the fifth edition of the Twenty20 tournament because of the upcoming Municipal Elections in the capital in mid April.

 

As per the new schedule, Delhi Daredevils will now lock horns with Deccan Chargers on April 19 instead of April 14 at the Ferozh Shah Kotla stadium.

 

As previously announced, the M A Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai will host the Qualifier 2 play-off match and the final.
