10TH edition of IPL is started and the highlight of the opening ceremony was the felicitation of four Indian cricket legends – Sachin Tendulkar, Sourav Ganguly, Virender Sehwag and VVS Laxman. Also, Bollywood star Amy Jackson set the stage on fire with her brilliant performance. The cricket action will now start with an important match between defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad and Royal Challengers Bangalore in Hyderabad.

This time around, the opening ceremony will be quite short-lived though. The organisers have decided to keep it to merely 24 minutes while the only star attraction will be Amy Jackson. The opening ceremonies will be held in all 8 cities subsequently, starting first with Hyderabad.
