IPL 2023 Opening Ceremony Highlights: The IPL 2023 Opening Ceremony began in grand style with famous actor Mandira Bedi's iconic return. The famous actor from the 1990s veered into cricket broadcasting but walked away from it after a few years, but what a way to make a comeback - in front of a packed crowd at the world's largest stadiums. Meanwhile, Arijit Singh wooed the crowd with some of his famous chartbusters - Kesariya, Channa Mereya and now Tujhe Kitna Chaahne Lagey hum. Tamanna Bhatia followed Arijit's performance with some stunning dance moves to win the crowd over. After Tamanna, Rashmika Madanna was the final performer as the fans went crazy. After their performances, MS Dhoni and Hardik Pandya were invited to the stage with Jay Shah and Arun Dhumal. The captains made their entry with chariot-like carriages, with Pandya carrying their trophy. The event ended with them getting a photograph clicked with the trophy. The grand event will be followed by the season opener between defending champions Gujarat Titans and Chennai Super Kings in the same venue. Today's opening ceremony is also the first to take place in IPL since 2018.

    According to Doull (for the broadcasters), "The pitch looks like a belter of a wicket, there's a bit of grass covering on it, the surface is nice and hard. It has some good pace and bounce in it. The new ball might nip around a bit, so the opening batters will have a little bit of work cut out. The square boundaries are comparatively shorter as compared to the straighter ones. A great cricket surface and the outfield looks magnificent. The batters need to put up a good score on the board."
